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. This is still my favorite Mexican restaurant in town. What I do love about the new version is it is much quieter than the most recent version. TV's were off, the music wasn't too loud, and the wait staff were not hyperactive like they had been the past few times I had been there. I just wish they would bring back the MOLE for the enchiladas!

    2. Not a bad paper. There is a need for local community news and city government issues. Don't really need the owner's constant national political rants. We all know where they stand by now.

    3. What nice people. Menard should've known better than to team up with the guy who robbed and drove Conseco to ashes. I'm surprised Timothy Durham isn't involved in this.

    4. Hello, I am Maris Peters, currently living in Texas city, USA. I am a widow at the moment with three kids and i was stuck in a financial situation in August 2014 and i needed to refinance and pay my bills. I tried seeking loans from various loan Companies both private and corporate but never with success, and most banks declined my credit. But as God would have it, I was introduced to a Man of God a private loan lender who gave me a loan of $65,000USD and today am a business owner and my kids are doing well at the moment, if you must contact any firm or company with reference to securing a loan without collateral , no credit check, no co signer with just 2% interest rate and better repayment plans and schedule, please contact Mr William David. He doesn’t know that am doing this but am so happy now and i decided to let people know more about him and also i want God to bless him more.You can contact him through his email: Davidloanfirm@yahoo.com

    5. It is beyond me how anyone can think this was a "bad deal" for the state! If they could take the money back then, yes, but they can't! Protections were built in the agreement. Now, if they roll the roads up and take them away, I will agree that it was a bad deal. Otherwise, the only way to have paid for the infrastructure that was badly needed was for the state to issue bonds....that is a four letter synonym for debt folks!!
