The new owners Learsi & Co. Inc. plan to redevelop the space and lease the property to three to four new tenants, said David Israel, president of Learsi & Co.

JC Penney sold the store, 5900 Durand Ave., to Learsi & Co. in November for $2.5 million.

Israel is actively marketing the space on the first floor as retail space and plans to lease out the second floor as back office space. If all goes well, he hopes to start construction in May, he said.
