People on the northwest side could get another fitness option to go with a brand new Gold's Gym that just opened near 86th Street and Michigan Road. LA FitnessA development fact sheet from Kite Realty Group shows a "proposed LA Fitness" location southwest of the intersection of 106th Street and Michigan Road, behind a National Bank of Indianapolis branch. The development, known as Weston Park, has a total of about 100,000 square feet of retail space.

  • This is a good idea, as the area is really lacking in amenities such as these. It's interesting to note that these fitness places don't seem to be scared off by the new Jim Brainard Gold-Plated Carmel-Clay Monon Center. The Zarmel area where this LA Fitness is proposed could really use a large, full-service facility with pools, courts, etc. - like Lifetime Fitness. But with Five Seasons, and now the Monon Center, it'll be scaled-down places like Gold's (although it does have lap swimming) and LA that fill in the gaps.

    Also curious how this will impact the future construction of a Pike YMCA, which is intended to be similar to the Fishers branch. These are definitely the competition.
  • Has there been an update on this? Is it firm yet?
  • My understanding is yes.
  • There's an LA Fitness going in on East 146th Street in Carmel also in the same development as The National Bank of Indianapolis. This one is a Thompson Thrift project though.
  • la joke
    This is such and unstructured business. Easy to join hard to get out of. Treated like a low class citizen there yet I payed for this. Not everything is explained at the table when signing and have been lied to so much ever since. Ballys should be back in and la fitness out. True we need amenties here in CARMEL< NOT ZARMEL, however we dont need con artists.

    ERY BAD CUSTOMER SERVICE, DO NOT ENROLL YOURSELF HERE Worst Sales Manager Michael S. how can you be a Manager Mike? Basically he told me yesterday May 9th, 2012 'I do not want unhappy clients here" if you do not like LA FITNESS do not come back, leave the gym" this is so ridiculous Mike, you were very happy with me when you enroll me on May 16th, 2011 right? then I went with you to complain and you call me liar... so I left the gym, I closed my membership, Be careful with the sales people in LA FITNESS. Horrible Kids Club, more that 20 kids with just 2 girls "looking after them" while they use their iPhone or read a book. Staff here do not care about their clients, we are just a number.

  1. In reality, Lilly is maintaining profit by cutting costs such as Indiana/US citizen IT workers by a significant amount with their Tata Indian consulting connection, increasing Indian H1B's at Lillys Indiana locations significantly and offshoring to India high paying Indiana jobs to cut costs and increase profit at the expense of U.S. workers.

  2. I think perhaps there is legal precedence here in that the laws were intended for family farms, not pig processing plants on a huge scale. There has to be a way to squash this judges judgment and overrule her dumb judgement. Perhaps she should be required to live in one of those neighbors houses for a month next to the farm to see how she likes it. She is there to protect the people, not the corporations.

  3. http://www.omafra.gov.on.ca/english/engineer/facts/03-111.htm Corporate farms are not farms, they are indeed factories on a huge scale. The amount of waste and unhealthy smells are environmentally unsafe. If they want to do this, they should be forced to buy a boundary around their farm at a premium price to the homeowners and landowners that have to eat, sleep, and live in a cesspool of pig smells. Imagine living in a house that smells like a restroom all the time. Does the state really believe they should take the side of these corporate farms and not protect Indiana citizens. Perhaps justifiable they should force all the management of the farms to live on the farm itself and not live probably far away from there. Would be interesting to investigate the housing locations of those working at and managing the corporate farms.

  4. downtown in the same area as O'malia's. 350 E New York. Not sure that another one could survive. I agree a Target is needed d'town. Downtown Philly even had a 3 story Kmart for its downtown residents.

  5. Indy-area residents... most of you have no idea how AMAZING Aurelio's is. South of Chicago was a cool pizza place... but it pales in comparison to the heavenly thin crust Aurelio's pizza. Their deep dish is pretty good too. My waistline is expanding just thinking about this!
