Closing on old Sears retail site nearing

LAKE CHARLES, LA (KPLC) - City of Lake Charles officials say they are just days away from closing on the old Sears retail site.

The closing has been held up because of several unfinished items out of the city's control.

The city expects to tie up the last of the loose ends this week.

Officials have notified developer and purchaser Roger Landry to be prepared to close within the next 10 to 15 days.

Landry is proposing building a multi-million dollar luxury apartment and mixed retail development.
