It looks like the landscape of 116th Street will change even further this summer.
The Fishers town council approved plans for a new 51,000 square-foot office complex to be constructed at the corner of 116th Street and Lantern Road. You’ll know exactly the spot…it’s where an empty Kentucky Fried Chicken building currently stands.
The $18 million projected budget will include a three-story building, which will offer retail and medical destinations, and will also house a 330-space parking garage. Community Health Network will anchor 22,000 square feet on the second and third floors.
The Nickel Plate District downtown Fishers will benefit from this parking structure for the many concerts, farmers markets, eateries and businesses who currently don’t have a lot of surface parking.
Fishers Town Council President John Weingardt also noted the parking spaces will be available to the public after 6 p.m. and on Saturdays and Sundays. The project will begin this summer and plans to be concluded by spring of 2015. This project is just another part of the downtown redevelopment strategy to attract innovative businesses and bring creative, entrepreneurial talent to Fishers.
