Baceline Investments Completes Retail Center Acquisition of  Madison & Edgewood Shoppes in Indianapolis

Baceline Investments, LLC, a boutique private equity real estate investment and management company with retail holdings throughout the Central United States, announced today the firm has completed the acquisition of Madison & Edgewood Shoppes, a retail center in Indianapolis.

Baceline acquired the 48,716-square-foot retail center, located at 5855 Madison Ave. in a mature and affluent area of the city, for $2.5 million from Florida-based HPH FUND I D4, LLC, an affiliate of HPH Capital Management, LLC. Currently at 68 percent occupancy, the property presents an opportunity for Baceline Investments to add value through new leasing. Notable tenants include Great Clips, Edward Jones, Hallmark and Edgewood Family Dental. The retail center’s anchor tenant, Kroger, is not part of the acquisition.

Madison & Edgewood Shoppes is the fourth Indiana-based retail center owned by Baceline Investments. The firm also owns Center West in South Bend, Raceway Commons in Indianapolis, and Lafayette Marketplace in Lafayette.

“Baceline Investments is thrilled to announce the Madison & Edgewood closing,” said David Puchi, managing partner of Baceline Investments.  “We continue to seek out and focus on opportunistic real estate in America’s heartland communities. We have developed a strategic leasing plan to positively impact the retail center which will ultimately enhance the surrounding neighborhood.”

According to Puchi, the acquisition aligns with Baceline’s value-add strategy of seeking real estate that can provide attractive returns by placing high value on improving the quality of management and maintenance of the property so it benefits the surrounding neighborhood and community.

The Baceline Opportunities Fund, a part of the firm’s Value-Add strategy, is designed to invest in commercial properties or loans that have unrecognized potential because they are distressed or otherwise have neglected ownership.
