General Growth Properties inc, who is partnering with Childress Klein properties in building the Bridges at Mint Hill, has gotten a two week reprieve to pay a $900 million dept for two malls in Las Vegas. General Growth warned several weeks ago it may have to file for bankruptcy if it can’t meet its debt obligations. The most recent move will help it gain some time to pay off a “mountain of debt” obligations coming in the next year. Last month, GGP fired its chief executive, president and chief financial officer. Childress Klein has said to Mint Hill town commissioner Lloyd Austin they are willing and able to go it alone in building the mall in Mint Hill if they have to.
