ShurSave Update

Bloomfield Development Corporation found out earlier this week from the Allegheny County Real Estate Portal that the site sold, and closed on Jan. 15, for $5.78 million.

The new owner is Bloomfield Bridge Associates, LLC, the address of which is a P.O. box in Bethel Park. We can’t find anything else about the identity of the owner in our research this week and we will keep you posted as we learn more. We do know that the new owner is already repairing the busted sidewalk on Ella near the bus stop.

We believe an informed community is a strong community and will keep you posted on anything we learn about the plans for the site.
