On The Beat Industry News In Brief

The only bank branch location PNC Bank is selling in Marion County after its purchase of National City Bank has been purchased by C.H. Douglas & Gray Wealth Advisors.

The branch at 7040 N. College Ave. sold for $400,000 in a deal closed Jan. 13.

C.H. Douglas & Gray is expanding from 900 square feet of leased space at 9000 Keystone Crossing to the 2,400-square-foot bank branch, where it hopes to lease 400 square feet to another professional services firm. More than doubling its space will allow C.H. Douglas & Gray to add to its four advisers.

“We were sort of stepping all over each other” at the current location, said Chris Douglas, managing director of the firm.

A $200,000 renovation of the building, built in the 1980s, will start immediately. The firm expects to move in May. Douglas said the intent is to use high-quality finishes to give the new office the feel of homes in the nearby Arden and Williams Creek neighborhoods.

Colliers International broker Tom Osborne, who represented both PNC and Douglas’ firm in the transaction, said National City Bank closed the branch in late 2009. He said it was a popular listing, even in a bad economy, and had been under contract three times before C.H. Douglas & Gray bought it.

  1. If I were a developer I would be looking at the Fountain Square and Fletcher Place neighborhoods instead of Broad Ripple. I would avoid the dysfunctional BRVA with all of their headaches. It's like deciding between a Blackberry or an iPhone 5s smartphone. BR is greatly in need of updates. It has become stale and outdated. Whereas Fountain Square, Fletcher Place and Mass Ave have become the "new" Broad Ripples. Every time I see people on the strip in BR on the weekend I want to ask them, "How is it you are not familiar with Fountain Square or Mass Ave? You have choices and you choose BR?" Long vacant storefronts like the old Scholar's Inn Bake House and ZA, both on prominent corners, hurt the village's image. Many business on the strip could use updated facades. Cigarette butt covered sidewalks and graffiti covered walls don't help either. The whole strip just looks like it needs to be power washed. I know there is more to the BRV than the 700-1100 blocks of Broad Ripple Ave, but that is what people see when they think of BR. It will always be a nice place live, but is quickly becoming a not-so-nice place to visit.

  2. I sure hope so and would gladly join a law suit against them. They flat out rob people and their little punk scam artist telephone losers actually enjoy it. I would love to run into one of them some day!!

  3. Biggest scam ever!! Took 307 out of my bank ac count. Never received a single call! They prey on new small business and flat out rob them! Do not sign up with these thieves. I filed a complaint with the ftc. I suggest doing the same ic they robbed you too.

  4. Woohoo! We're #200!!! Absolutely disgusting. Bring on the congestion. Indianapolis NEEDS it.

  5. So Westfield invested about $30M in developing Grand Park and attendance to date is good enough that local hotel can't meet the demand. Carmel invested $180M in the Palladium - which generates zero hotel demand for its casino acts. Which Mayor made the better decision?
