'American Coyotes' Series

Traveling by Jeep, boat and foot, Tribune-Review investigative reporter Carl Prine and photojournalist Justin Merriman covered nearly 2,000 miles over two months along the border with Mexico to report on coyotes — the human traffickers who bring illegal immigrants into the United States. Most are Americans working for money and/or drugs. This series reports how their operations have a major impact on life for residents and the environment along the border — and beyond.

Summit Ridge Shopping Center has a new owner who may be planning an upgrade of the East Huntingdon center to include landscaping and improved lighting.

Also known as Summit Plaza, or Wal-Mart Center, the 224,700-square-foot complex was purchased for $20 million by Slate Properties LLC, based in Toronto, Canada.

The full name of the buyer, according to a news release issued by Slate, is Slate U.S. Opportunity (No. 1) Realty Trust, which indicates that other investors may be involved.

A deed filed in the Westmoreland County Recorder of Deeds office listed the seller as Hauck Holdings Ltd. of Cincinnati.

“Slate is expected to make improvements at the center and in its operation,” said Joe Petak, managing director of asset services for CBRE Inc., a commercial real estate company hired by Slate in Pittsburgh.

Slate had been looking for investment opportunities in Southwest Pennsylvania for the past 18 months, Petak said.

Slate owns the Kennywood Shops in West Mifflin and Field Club Commons, a shopping center in New Castle, Petak said. The Westmoreland County center is fully occupied, with Wal-Mart as the major anchor tenant.

It has 13 retailers, which occupy about 42,500 square feet of space, while Wal-Mart has a 185,829-square-foot, full-service grocery store, among other offerings, according to Slate.
