The redevelopment of Downtown Fishers is in full swing. Shelby Bowen, Vice President of Development at Envoy, Inc., shares with Lindy Thackston of Fox 59 News just how excited the Envoy team is to be a part of efforts to grow and develop this dynamic community. Here's a sneak peak:
"It’s not easy to come into a city and redevelop a downtown on this scale, so we’re just excited to be a part of it. There was no downtown... [the city] really lacked that sense of community. Then when you saw the Nickel Plate Amphitheater come on and people were gravitating towards that, it just kind of seemed natural to go you know, why not create a downtown? And that’s really what the mayor and council set out to do and hit a home run as far as I’m concerned. Between the brewery across the street and The Escape Room, we’re just lucky to be a part of that downtown culture of fun, entertainment and shopping. It’s just awesome. It’s just a sense of place. It’s just an extraordinary asset for Fishers."
Envoy already has one project completed: The Edge, an $18 million, mixed-use office and retail building with an attached parking garage, right on the corner of 116th and Lantern. Already home to The Well Coffeehouse, The Escape Room, Community Health Center, Borrowed Boutique, Lilly & Sparrow Boutique, and Progressive Eyecare, The Edge still has room for more!
1 North, located just down the street, is a nearly $45 million project that will include a regional 526-space parking garage and a mixed-use development with approximately 220 residential units, including 13 live-work units. Expected completion is in 2018.
