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. Those of you yelling to deport them all should at least understand that the law allows minors (if not from a bordering country) to argue for asylum. If you don't like the law, you can petition Congress to change it. But you can't blindly scream that they all need to be deported now, unless you want your government to just decide which laws to follow and which to ignore.

    2. 52,000 children in a country with a population of nearly 300 million is decimal dust or a nano-amount of people that can be easily absorbed. In addition, the flow of children from central American countries is decreasing. BL - the country can easily absorb these children while at the same time trying to discourage more children from coming. There is tension between economic concerns and the values of Judeo-Christian believers. But, I cannot see how the economic argument can stand up against the values of the believers, which most people in this country espouse (but perhaps don't practice). The Governor, who is an alleged religious man and a family man, seems to favor the economic argument; I do not see how his position is tenable under the circumstances. Yes, this is a complicated situation made worse by politics but....these are helpless children without parents and many want to simply "ship" them back to who knows where. Where are our Hoosier hearts? I thought the term Hoosier was synonymous with hospitable.

    3. Illegal aliens. Not undocumented workers (too young anyway). I note that this article never uses the word illegal and calls them immigrants. Being married to a naturalized citizen, these people are criminals and need to be deported as soon as humanly possible. The border needs to be closed NOW.

    4. Send them back NOW.

    5. deport now
