Prime Development was the devloper of a 149-lot subdivision among other projects. The bankruptcy bid came on the heels of liens that were placed on the company some nine months prior.

Landreth Lumber Co. and Chapman Excavating & Concrete Co., both of Bunker Hill; South Roxana-based River Bend Contractors Inc.; and Mayfield Bros. Inc. of Staunton filed a joint petition Oct. 16, seeking to put Prime Development Inc. in Chapter 7 bankruptcy.

Important: This company is on our list of builder operations that have "imploded" (see also ailing lenders). This is a somewhat subjective call, and does not necessarily mean total shutdown or bankruptcy. It can also mean steep and rapid declines in enterprise value; or abnormal "bail-out" by corporate parents or peers in order to continue to operate. The builders may be residential or commercial.
