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. 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.
