Two long-term leases at Park West Shopping Center at 201 S. Mount Auburn Road in Cape Girardeau have been completed, said Tom Kelsey, commercial broker with Lorimont Place Ltd., who handled the lease transaction for both spaces. The shopping center, home to Brown's Shoe Fit Co., now will house Sound Advice, a hearing consultant business. The company has affiliated with the Audiology Center to open the new operation, Kelsey said. Next door to Sound Advice in the shopping center will be The Orthopedic Center of St. Louis, in the former Coldwater Creek location. The office will have an in-house MRI machine, Kelsey said.
Extensive remodeling will be needed to transform the former retail spaces to walk-in medical operations and construction has already begun. Both locations representing 8,166 square feet in the center are expected to be in operation within about 90 days and bring the development owned by MidAmerica Hotels to 100% occupancy.
