Rivers Crossing Shopping Center

SR 48 at I-71, S Lebanon, OH 45065

434,300 SF regional power center with 13 outparcels. Anchored by Kohl’s, Target & Lowe’s

  • Challenge:
    2008-2009 recession stalled project with only two anchors and three outparcels developed and significant debt in place.  Commercial debt market froze lending on new development projects.
    Resulted in the project’s equity investor/guarantor taking control of project from original developer.
    The new development team needed to restart the development despite the lack of activity in the post-recession period.
  • Solution:
    Edge worked with new development team to revisit the development plan, optimize tenant mix and re-introduce the project to the market.
    Edge and new development team structured a phased development approach to minimize risk for lender and new development team.
    Edge employed a comprehensive marketing strategy to generate interest in the project and over- come the stigma surrounding the stalled development.
    Edge negotiated both in-line and outparcel deals while navigating extensive prohibited and exclusive use restrictions in the development’s REA and ECCR.
  • Conclusion:
    Edge overcame the challenges, leased the project to 100% occupancy and leased/sold all of the available outparcels.
    The equity investor/guarantor monetized the leased assets by selling them on the investment market, retired the project debt and enjoyed a healthy return from the project.
