Premier Properties has taken another step toward its ambitious plan for Woodfield Crossing. The company has a deal to relocate D'vine A Wine Bar from an existing retail building on the Woodfield property to another building it owns. EchelonD'vine is moving into the former home of Cibo Italian restaurant in the Echelon (northwest of 82nd Street and Allisonville Road, pictured here). The wine bar began working on the space this week and will take a total of 5,500 square feet on the first floor and mezzanine. The old 3,200-square-foot location will remain open until the new space is available. Premier plans to raze the former home of D'vine as part of a redevelopment project that calls for a 5,000-seat theater, hundreds of condos and more than a million square feet of office and retail space. The owner of D'vine, Bennet Ackerman, said he'd move into the new project "in a heartbeat" if Premier offers the opportunity.
A D'vine bonus: The wine bar also is working on a deal to open a new location in downtown Carmel.

  • People had been asking me where D'Vine was going to be moving. Putting them in the restaurant spot below Vizion is a perfect idea.
  • D'oh -- I mean in the old Vizion and old Cibo space. The space is below Gelo (nee Vapour Lounge). I can't keep all my clubs and restaurants straight anymore.
  • Does this mean that Cibo/Gelo is closing its operations or simply moving to another location? Anyone have any further information on Cibo's status?
  • CIBO is closed for business (www.ciboindy.com) but GELO will remain open on certain nights - I think Wed, Fri & Sat.

  1. The east side does have potential...and I have always thought Washington Scare should become an outlet mall. Anyone remember how popular Eastgate was? Well, Indy has no outlet malls, we have to go to Edinburgh for the deep discounts and I don't understand why. Jim is right. We need a few good eastsiders interested in actually making some noise and trying to change the commerce, culture and stereotypes of the East side. Irvington is very progressive and making great strides, why can't the far east side ride on their coat tails to make some changes?

  2. Boston.com has an article from 2010 where they talk about how Interactions moved to Massachusetts in the year prior. http://www.boston.com/business/technology/innoeco/2010/07/interactions_banks_63_million.html The article includes a link back to that Inside Indiana Business press release I linked to earlier, snarkily noting, "Guess this 2006 plan to create 200-plus new jobs in Indiana didn't exactly work out."

  3. I live on the east side and I have read all your comments. a local paper just did an article on Washington square mall with just as many comments and concerns. I am not sure if they are still around, but there was an east side coalition with good intentions to do good things on the east side. And there is a facebook post that called my eastside indy with many old members of the eastside who voice concerns about the east side of the city. We need to come together and not just complain and moan, but come up with actual concrete solutions, because what Dal said is very very true- the eastside could be a goldmine in the right hands. But if anyone is going damn, and change things, it is us eastside residents

  4. Please go back re-read your economics text book and the fine print on the February 2014 CBO report. A minimum wage increase has never resulted in a net job loss...

  5. The GOP at the Statehouse is more interested in PR to keep their majority, than using it to get anything good actually done. The State continues its downward spiral.
