North-side office building falls into foreclosure

Back to TopCommentsE-mailPrintBookmark and Share

A nearly 100,000-square-foot office building on East 46th Street in Indianapolis has fallen into foreclosure after lenders found the owner in default on a $4.5 million loan.

LaSalle Bank and UBS Real Estate Investments Inc. filed suit on Aug. 15 against owners Keystone Corporation Square LP and Robert Ferree, claiming they owed a balance of $4.4 million on the loan as of June 20.

Keystone Corporation Square is an affiliate of Landmark Properties Group of Allison Park, Pa.

Landmark CEO Ferree resides in Valencia, Pa., according to court documents. He did not return a phone call seeking comment on the foreclosure.

Landmark owns more than a dozen commercial properties in five states, including Hawthorn Business Centre at 5060 E. 62nd St. in Indianapolis, according to its website.

A hearing has been set for Sept. 5 in Marion Superior Court to appoint a receiver to manage the property on East 46th Street, between North Keystone Avenue and Allisonville Road, during the foreclosure proceedings.

Tenants include ADT Security Services, City of Refuge Christian Church and Miller Coin Washer Co.

Building owners received a loan from UBS in November 2006. The lender notified them in June 2011 that partial payment was due, and UBS assigned LaSalle Bank as trustee on the loan.

With interest and other charges, UBS claims it is owed $5.2 million, according to court documents.

  • eastside
    Keystone is east of Meridian street
  • North Side
    Thank you for the correction.
  • Oh...
    to tell the IBJ Staff that 46TH & KEYSTONE IS NOT ON THE EAST SIDE! Don't they have a big map on the wall of the newsroom there that you could look at before printing such things?
    • Who cares?
      Big whoop! A commercial property being foreclosed on. Why is this news? It's at 46th & Keystone. Are we supposed to be shocked that a property is in foreclosure proceedings there?
    • Tip of the iceberg
      This is just the tip of the Commercial Property Iceberg. I am very concerned about Regional Banks currently holding the paper on multi-million dollar commercial property loans.

    1. I could be wrong, but I don't think Butler views the new dorm as mere replacements for Schwitzer and or Ross.

    2. An increase of only 5% is awesome compared to what most consumers face or used to face before passage of the ACA. Imagine if the Medicaid program had been expanded to the 400k Hoosiers that would be eligible, the savings would have been substantial to the state and other policy holders. The GOP predictions of plan death spirals, astronomical premium hikes and shortages of care are all bunk. Hopefully voters are paying attention. The Affordable Care Act (a.k.a Obamacare), where fully implemented, has dramatically reduced the number of uninsured and helped contained the growth in healthcare costs.

    3. So much for competition lowering costs.

    4. As I understand the proposal, Keystone would take on the debt, not the city/CRC. So the $104K would not be used to service the $3.8M bond. Keystone would do that with its share.

    5. Adam C, if anything in Carmel is "packed in like sardines", you'll have to show me where you shop for groceries. Based on 2014 population estimates, Carmel has around 85,000 people spread across about 48 square miles, which puts its density at well below 1800 persons/sq mi, which is well below Indianapolis (already a very low-density city). Noblesville is minimally less dense than Carmel as well. The initiatives over the last few years have taken what was previously a provincial crossroads with no real identity beyond lack of poverty (and the predictably above-average school system) and turned it into a place with a discernible look, feel, and a center. Seriously, if you think Carmel is crowded, couldn't you opt to live in the remaining 95% of Indiana that still has an ultra-low density development pattern? Moreover, if you see Carmel as "over-saturated" have you ever been to Chicago--or just about any city outside of Indiana?
