A legal advertisement said The Crossings of Elkview shopping center off Interstate 79 would be sold in front of the Kanawha Courthouse. The ad said the sale would be April 2, but the ad was published on April 16.
A lawyer involved in the matter said there was a mistake in the ad and there is no sale.
No sale implies the lender (listed as American National Insurance Co.) and the borrower (listed as Interstate Properties Limited Liability Co.) have come to an agreement.
Fairmont native William Abruzzino controls Interstate Properties of Miramar Beach, Fla. In addition to the Elkview shopping center, Abruzzino developed Marion Square in Fairmont and a center in Summersville.
Before the recession hit, another Abruzzino company was planning to build an 89-room Hampton Inn hotel next to the Lowe's Home Improvement Warehouse in Kanawha City.

As reported last week, the state was soliciting offers from parties interested in leasing a combination of office, storage, filing, and conference room space in the Charleston area.
The state Purchasing Bulletin notice said the space needed to be 23,000 to 26,000 square feet and come with about 100 parking spaces.
Diane Holley-Brown said last week that the Department of Administration was in a "deliberative mode" and therefore she was unable to reveal additional details, including the name of the agency seeking the space.
