This has to be the coolest use of warehouse space yet. Bounce HouseA Fishers company called BounceZone has leased 12,000 square feet northwest of 146th Street and Cumberland Road in Noblesville with plans for a unique amusement center. They're installing 14 bounce inflatables, along with arcade games and a concession stand. The facility will be available by appointment and for parties and is slated to open Aug. 1. Janae Ledbetter, the owner and president, previously ran a daycare. "It's a full service party place for kids," she said. While their kids have fun, parents can visit other nearby businesses including a fitness trainer, chiropractor and an insurance adjuster.

  • Sounds like what Discovery Zone used to be only on CRACK. Can adults sign up as well. I think it would be a good corporate team building event.
  • yeah... I want to play in a bounce house! Why do the kids get all the fun stuff?
  • Just fill the kids up with Mountain Dew Code Red and they'll be bouncing off the walls without any need to brave the congestion in CarNoblesField.
  • Figures they'd put it in Fishers -- need something to keep the soccer moms occupied.
  • This type of business is actually quite popular in many other locations in the U.S. I have friends in other states who love them. It's another nice option for those who want to have their childrens' birthday parties somewhere besides home. And I also hear they do a good business in the winter because it's a great place to take kids to burn off some energy.

    I'm actually happy to see something unique like this come to the area. It seems that Fishers and Noblesville are simply full of lots of me too businesses.

  1. By Mr. Lee's own admission, he basically ran pro-bono ads on the billboard. Paying advertisers didn't want ads on a controversial, ugly billboard that turned off customers. At least one of Mr. Lee's free advertisers dropped out early because they found that Mr. Lee's advertising was having negative impact. So Mr. Lee is disingenous to say the city now owes him for lost revenue. Mr. Lee quickly realized his monstrosity had a dim future and is trying to get the city to bail him out. And that's why the billboard came down so quickly.

  2. Merchants Square is back. The small strip center to the south of 116th is 100% leased, McAlister’s is doing well in the outlot building. The former O’Charleys is leased but is going through permitting with the State and the town of Carmel. Mac Grill is closing all of their Indy locations (not just Merchants) and this will allow for a new restaurant concept to backfill both of their locations. As for the north side of 116th a new dinner movie theater and brewery is under construction to fill most of the vacancy left by Hobby Lobby and Old Navy.

  3. Yes it does have an ethics commission which enforce the law which prohibits 12 specific items. google it

  4. Thanks for reading and replying. If you want to see the differentiation for research, speaking and consulting, check out the spreadsheet I linked to at the bottom of the post; it is broken out exactly that way. I can only include so much detail in a blog post before it becomes something other than a blog post.

  5. 1. There is no allegation of corruption, Marty, to imply otherwise if false. 2. Is the "State Rule" a law? I suspect not. 3. Is Mr. Woodruff obligated via an employment agreement (contractual obligation) to not work with the engineering firm? 4. In many states a right to earn a living will trump non-competes and other contractual obligations, does Mr. Woodruff's personal right to earn a living trump any contractual obligations that might or might not be out there. 5. Lawyers in state government routinely go work for law firms they were formally working with in their regulatory actions. You can see a steady stream to firms like B&D from state government. It would be interesting for IBJ to do a review of current lawyers and find out how their past decisions affected the law firms clients. Since there is a buffer between regulated company and the regulator working for a law firm technically is not in violation of ethics but you have to wonder if decisions were made in favor of certain firms and quid pro quo jobs resulted. Start with the DOI in this review. Very interesting.
