NASCAR PlazaLocally based Lauth had a big week. They announced plans for a 7.1-million-square-foot distribution park on 555 acres at Interstate 70 and State Road 39 near Plainfield. But lately the company has been getting more attention for its projects outside Indiana. The company broke ground this week on a 187,000-square-foot, LEED-registered office building in Las Vegas. And they've begun construction on NASCAR Plaza (shown here), a 20-story, LEED-registered office tower in Charlotte, N.C. What do you think of their work? Would you like to see a building like NASCAR Plaze here?

  • I'm glad to see they are doing LEED registered buildings. Hopefully they can start doing that around here as well.
  • Great Stephen Colbert reference.
  • I second Tony's comments... glad to see the LEED usage. Does anyone know what level of LEED they are aiming for? Since we have not seen much LEED activity locally, I am guess there aren't many tenants asking for it. Hopefully that will change in the very near future.
  • Lauth ROCKS!!!
  • i like the nascar plaza they are building, i would like to see them do something here, just taller, lol.
  • From that angle, NASCAR Plaza looks as thrilling as the JW Marriot.

    The curvy part might have potential, but the tower is about as bland as you can get.

    Someone please tell them the 80s are over.
  • Indy's lucky to have the headquarters two of the largest developers in the country: Duke and Lauth. Hopefully after the market lightens up they can do some large-scale hometown projects we can be proud of.
  • Is one requirement of the LEED program that the building be unimaginitive and dull?
  • what is LEED?
  • Indy needs more visionary developers like Jaron Garrett.
  • LEED stands for Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design.

    More info can be found at http://www.usgbc.org/
  • Jaron Garrett isn't a visionary, he takes the ideas of others (turning torso) and modifies them slightly.
  • Wow, is Indy now exporting our brand of unimaginative, boring and bland architecure? Is there a name for it yet? How about the Indianapolis School?
  • Lauth Rocks?!? WTF? Lauth's buildings are uninspired, lack quality craftsmanship, and they treat their subcontractors as disposable (ask anyone whose worked for them). In fact, ask anyone who is an employee. Lauth Sucks.

  1. I had read earlier this spring that Noodles & Co was going to open in the Fishers Marketplace (which is SR 37 and 131st St, not 141st St, just FYI). Any word on that? Also, do you happen to know what is being built in Carmel at Pennsylvania and Old Meridian? May just be an office building but I'm not sure.

  2. I'm sorry, but you are flat out wrong. There are few tracks in the world with the history of IMS and probably NO OTHER as widely known and recognized. I don't care what you think about the stat of Indy Car racing, these are pretty hard things to dispute.

  3. Also wondering if there is an update on the Brockway Pub-Danny Boy restaurant/taproom that was planned for the village as well?

  4. Why does the majority get to trample on the rights of the minority? You do realize that banning gay marriage does not rid the world of gay people, right? They are still going to be around and they are still going to continue to exist. The best way to get it all out of the spotlight? LEGALIZE IT! If gay marriage is legal, they will get to stop trying to push for it and you will get to stop seeing it all over the news. Why do Christians get to decide what is moral?? Why do you get to push your religion on others? How would legalizing gay marriage expose their lifestyle to your children? By the way, their lifestyle is going to continue whether gay marriage is legalized or not. It's been legal in Canada for quite a while now and they seem to be doing just fine. What about actual rules handed down by God? What about not working on Sundays? What about obeying your parents? What about adultery? These are in the 10 Commandments, the most important of God's rules. Yet they are all perfectly legal. What about divorce? Only God is allowed to dissolve a marriage so why don't you work hard to get divorce banned? Why do you get to pick and choose the parts of the Bible you care about?

  5. Look at the bright side. With the new Lowe's call center, that means 1000 jobs at $10 bucks an hour. IMS has to be drooling over all that disposable income. If those employees can save all their extra money after bills, in five years they can go to the race LIVE. Can you say attendance boost?
