Real estate transactions in Montgomery County continue to take place uninterrupted despite the pandemic, writes Natalie Kostelni for the Philadelphia Business Journal.

Most recently, the Hopwood School and Camp, including its business and property at 1520 Quarry Road in Lansdale, was sold to Casey and Annie O’Rourke for an undisclosed amount.

The new owners will continue to operate both the school and the camp that is set on 10.5 acres. The four buildings on the property total 13,000 square feet.

Previous owners, Heidi Hopwood Geverd, daughter of the school’s founders, Richard and Ann Hopwood, and her husband, Brian Geverd, decided to sell the school as part of their retirement preparations.

Meanwhile, Lower Merion School District has topped off its new middle school that is currently under construction at 1860 Montgomery Avenue in Villanova.

The $95.8 million, 208,000-square-foot facility is scheduled to open to students in September next year.

The project is currently on track to cost $11 million under the initial estimate of $95.8 million, according to Amy Buckman, the district spokeswoman.
