Ursuline Academy buys shopping center next door

BLUE ASH, OH (FOX19) - Ursuline Academy has purchased a small shopping center right next to the school.

The girls Catholic high school on Pfieffer Road in Blue Ash closed on the shopping center last week. The shopping center includes the Brown Dog Cafe, an Office Depot, as well as a few other stores.

According to Ursuline Academy President Sharon Redmond, they were interested in the property because they are currently located in a very crowded area and would like to have the capability to expand. The owner of the property was also interested in selling at this time.

The only immediate change coming to the shopping center is that the school faculty will now be using some of the parking spaces there to free up space in the school's already existing parking lot.

The school says it will honor the leases of the current tenants, which expire at different times. They aren't discussing any specific future ideas for the property.

The property sold for $4.8 million.
