Pieces from today's Indianapolis Star and Indianapolis Business Journal discuss the status and future of Central Indiana's commercial real estate market, including the impact of the lending crisis. Click for the stories: IndyStar1, IndyStar2 and IBJ. Once again, the theme seems to be that, while development may be down, there are few if any signs of substantial increases in commercial loan defaults, foreclosures or bankruptcies in deals tied to commercial real estate. Relative to the rest of the country, Indiana appears to be in decent shape in the commercial real estate and commercial lending sectors. Please e-mail me if you feel otherwise or are aware of contrary media reports, thanks.
