Strong interest seen in former River Park site now up for sale | Business

An agents who has the listing for the River Park property near Hollywood Casino said Thursday he is in active discussions with five or six parties who are interested in the 23.5-acre site along the Mississippi River formerly proposed for a mixed-use development.

“The interest level is strong,” said Gordon McLeod with The McEnery Co., a New Orleans firm.

In September, 19th Judicial District Court Judge Janice Clark ruled against River Park developer Pete Clements in a four-year-long battle first brought against him by First NBC Bank. Girod LoanCo took over the battle after the failure of First NBC. Clark ruled that Clements owed the lender more than $19 million in principal and interest payments, stemming from a 2008 loan he took out on the property.

As vacant foreclosures increase, so does buyer interest

A Q3 2020 rise in vacant foreclosures signals a possible re-escalation in a hard-fought battle against neighborhood blight in which many cities have just recently gained the upper hand.

“We still have vacancy and blight issues but they are not crippling as they were a decade ago,” said Ian Beniston, executive director at the Youngstown Neighborhood Development Corporation (YNDC), a nonprofit community development corporation in Youngstown, Ohio. “When we began a decade ago there was much more blight. There were more than 5,000 vacant properties. Last count there were 1,800 – which is still 1,800 too many.”

The rate of vacant foreclosures, also known as “zombie” foreclosures, dropped to an all-time low of 7.4% in Youngstown in the second quarter of 2020, according to data from ATTOM Data Solutions, which also shows the zombie foreclosure rate dropping to an all-time low of 3.0% nationwide in the second quarter.
