Under the terms of the auction website, Auction.com, an unpublished reserve price has to be met before a sale of the mall site will be final. In the last minutes of the auction of Crestwood Court, bidding on the mall went up to $3.65 million, with a bid deposit of $25,000. The minimum bid was $1 million, but the Auction.com terms state that the minimum bid may not be the auction's actual reserve price.
Chicago-based developer Centrum Properties co-owns the mall with New York-based investment adviser Angelo, Gordon & Co. Centrum presented a roughly $121 million redevelopment proposal to the Crestwood Board of Aldermen, requesting $34 million in tax-increment financing and other tax incentives.
Mayor Gregg Roby defeated former Mayor Jeff Schlink in the April 8 election. Roby supported Centrum's redevelopment proposal, while Schlink declined to break a tie in December 2012 that would have selected a planner to study the proposal.
