Towne Square Mall to Be Under JLL Management and Leasing

LEXINGTON, Ky., Aug. 11, 2015 — Greg Maloney, Americas CEO of JLL's Retail Group, has been appointed as receiver of Towne Square Mall, located in Owensboro, Kentucky. As the receiver, Maloney is responsible for controlling and maintaining the asset as an officer of the court. JLL will be responsible for leasing and management of the nearly 500,000-square-foot shopping mall. Built in 1978, the property's tenant mix includes more than 40 national, regional and local retailers and is anchored by J.C.Penney, Macy's and Burke's.

JLL Regional Manager Rick Vita will oversee the leasing and management team on this assignment.

"We are well positioned to provide the most comprehensive and dynamic services on this important assignment," said Maloney.  "Our management team is fully engaged in keeping the mall running smoothly.  We are open for business and welcome the entire community to continue shopping at the mall."

As a receiver, Maloney was appointed by the courts to work closely with the lenders and borrower to control and direct the use of the asset until a resolution is achieved.  Although receivership designations vary state by state, they share the same premise of appointing independent managers to assume fiduciary responsibility.  During the receivership process, the receiver chooses the most appropriate firm to manage and lease the asset and provides recommendations for the most profitable outcome of the asset, including the possible sale of the asset.
