RICHMOND, IN-Bayview Financial has sold the 300,759-sf Richmond Square enclosed mall here for $23.5 million. The property is currently 97% leased. Richmond Square is located at 3801 National Rd.

Sears, JCPenney and Office Max are the anchor tenants. Other tenants include Aeropostle, American Eagle, Finish Line, Journey, Victoria’s Secret and PacSun. The average in-line tenant sales for the mall exceeded $268 per sf in 2003.Coral Gables, FL-based Bayview acquired the property in January 2003 from Simon Property Group as part of a portfolio. Simon came to own the property through its 1996 merger with DeBartolo Realty Corp.
