Joseph and Nabil Sater, the longtime owners of the renowned Middle East club in Central Square, have purchased the building that houses the venue’s multiple stages and restaurants, a source has confirmed to Boston.com this evening.

The fate of the club, which has played host to a who’s who of the music world since it began holding rock shows back in 1987, has been in question of late. Earlier this year it was feared that the end may be in sight for the club, with the Saters needing to come up with a reported $7 million to purchase the building.


Plans for adding four to five stories of apartments on top of the space were being considered to help offset the cost of investment.
