Geyer South and the Geyer Springs Shopping Center (shaded in red) were purchased by a Brooklyn, New York, limited liability company.

The deal is backed with a $700,000 loan from Delta Trust & Bank of Little Rock.

The 1-acre development previously was tied to a May 2008 loan of $425,000 from Pulaski Bank & Trust of Little Rock.

The Tanners purchased the location for $124,000 in May 2003 from Gleneagles Inc., led by Frank Hickingbotham.

A 6,756-SF eatery in southwest Little Rock changed hands in a $640,000 deal.

Shelay Inc., led by Mohammed Qassas, bought the former Fire Mountain/Ryan’s restaurant at 8815 Baseline Road. The seller is 8815 Baseline Road LLC, an affiliate of Standard Insurance Co. of Hillsboro, Oregon.

The deal is funded with a five-year loan of $512,000 from IberiaBank of Lafayette, Louisiana.

8815 Baseline entered the ownership picture at a $485,000 foreclosure in December 2013. The limited liability company recovered the 2.02-acre development from DeeKay Properties LLC of Fountain Valley, California, led by Kay Hara.
