WALLA WALLA — The former Blue Mountain Mall was sold today.

The mall property was purchased by Key Bank subsidiary OREO Corp. for $4 million, said attorney Andrea Burkhart. Further details of the sale were not available.

The company bought the mall at an auction on the steps of the Walla Walla County Courthouse. The property has been the subject of a series of foreclosures and sales processes over the past several years.

Hopefully the purchase price was cheap enough that they can finally develope the property. I'm so tired of looking at that every day!

It looks like OREO Properties is the correct name, unrelated to the cookies. A quick web search returned this site: http://oreoproperties.net/

Yes, OREO is a general bank acronym for Other Real Estate Owned.
