Centre Properties escapes foreclosure on 12 properties

Back to TopCommentsE-mailPrintBookmark and Share

Indianapolis development firm Centre Properties said Tuesday that it has renegotiated terms on mortgages for 12 Indianapolis-area commercial properties that had been threatened by foreclosure from as long ago as 2008.

Financial terms of the agreements, announced in a written statement, were not disclosed, but the mortgages involve tens of millions of dollars in debt on retail properties spread throughout the area.

Centre Properties said it reached terms with Bank of America, which filed in January to foreclose on three of the properties—the 30,200-square-foot RiverPlace Shops in Fishers, the 51,600-square-foot Greenwood Crossing in Greenwood, and the 61,000-square-foot Raceway Market Shops on Rockville Road—over more than $11 million in debt.

Centre Properties put the three strip centers into Chapter 11 bankruptcy in March, prompting Bank of America to reach a settlement agreement with the developer in July.

The names of the other properties were not disclosed and a company representative was not immediately available for comment Tuesday morning, but IBJ has reported on at least two other foreclosure suits involving Centre Properties since late 2011.

Citigroup Mortgage Lending Trust, or CMLT, filed a $7.2 million foreclosure suit in July 2012 over the 52,400-square-foot Pyramid Place Shoppes at the intersection of West 86th Street and Michigan Road.

In November 2011, U.S. Bank filed a foreclosure suit in Marion Superior Court against subsidiary Centre East LLC, seeking $43.3 million stemming from a 2005 loan. The three properties involved in that suit were the 130,000-square-foot Centre North Shops at 8510 E. 96th St. in Fishers, the 17,900-square-foot Southport Shops at 7225 U.S. 31 South, and the 13,300-square-foot German Church Shops at 10935 E. Washington St.

Centre Properties said Tuesday that it faces foreclosure on only one more property, Southport Centre at 9333 N. Meridian St., but "anticipates successful negotiations will be finalized shortly."

The developer said it is starting development on two new retail centers this year in Indianapolis and still owns 40 properties in central Indiana.

Centre said it never missed interest and principal payments on any of the mortgages, but was unable to pay off the loans immediately when lenders sought lump-sum payoffs.

  1. Of what value is selling alcoholic beverages to State Fair patrons when there are many families with children attending. Is this the message we want to give children attending and participating in the Fair, another venue with alooholic consumption onsite. Is this to promote beer and wine production in the state which are great for the breweries and wineries, but where does this end up 10-15 years from now, lots more drinkers for the alcoholic contents. If these drinks are so important, why not remove the alcohol content and the flavor and drink itself similar to soft drinks would be the novelty, not the alcoholic content and its affects on the drinker. There is no social or material benefit from drinking alcoholic beverages, mostly people want to get slightly or highly drunk.

  2. I did;nt know anyone in Indiana could count- WHY did they NOT SAY just HOW this would be enforced? Because it WON;T! NOW- with that said- BIG BROTHER is ALIVE in this Article-why take any comment if it won't appease YOU PEOPLE- that's NOT American- with EVERYTHING you indicated is NOT said-I can see WHY it say's o Comments- YOU are COMMIES- BIG BROTHER and most likely- voted for Obama!

  3. In Europe there are schools for hairdressing but you don't get a license afterwards but you are required to assist in turkey and Italy its 7 years in japan it's 10 years England 2 so these people who assist know how to do hair their not just anybody and if your an owner and you hire someone with no experience then ur an idiot I've known stylist from different countries with no license but they are professional clean and safe they have no license but they have experience a license doesn't mean anything look at all the bad hairdressers in the world that have fried peoples hair okay but they have a license doesn't make them a professional at their job I think they should get rid of it because stateboard robs stylist and owners and they fine you for the dumbest f***ing things oh ur license isn't displayed 100$ oh ur wearing open toe shoes fine, oh there's ONE HAIR IN UR BRUSH that's a fine it's like really? So I think they need to go or ease up on their regulations because their too strict

  4. Exciting times in Carmel.

  5. Twenty years ago when we moved to Indy I was a stay at home mom and knew not very many people.WIBC was my family and friends for the most part. It was informative, civil, and humerous with Dave the KING. Terri, Jeff, Stever, Big Joe, Matt, Pat and Crumie. I loved them all, and they seemed to love each other. I didn't mind Greg Garrison, but I was not a Rush fan. NOW I can't stand Chicks and all their giggly opinions. Tony Katz is to abrasive that early in the morning(or really any time). I will tune in on Saturday morning for the usual fun and priceless information from Pat and Crumie, mornings it will be 90.1
