Local developer buys 50 acres in Intech Park

Back to TopCommentsE-mailPrintBookmark and Share

A highly visible parcel of land in Intech Park on Indianapolis’ northwest side has been sold to a local developer that plans to construct an office building on the site.

The local office of Chicago-based Jones Lang LaSalle, the broker for the seller, announced the deal Friday morning.

The buyer of the 50 acres, which fronts Interstate 465, is Ace Commercial Development LLC, which plans a build-to-suit development for an undisclosed client on part of the property, according to Jones Lang LaSalle.

Real estate sources say the client is Indianapolis-based Heritage Environmental Services LLC, which is planning lab space in part of the new office building. The building is expected to top 100,000 square feet.

Heritage officials did not return a phone call Friday morning seeking comment on the development.

Heritage, which has 17 locations in 13 states, was founded by the Fehsenfeld family, which also started Indianapolis-based Calumet Specialty Products Partners LP and took it public in 2006.

Part of the 50 acres includes a lake, leaving about 37 acres available for development. Ace plans to develop the rest of the land with additional Class A office buildings totaling up to 500,000 square feet, Jones Lang LaSalle said.

Jones Lang LaSalle completed the transaction on behalf of seller BMO Harris Bank, which took back the property from local developer Lauth Group. John Robinson, who helped lead the transaction for Jones Lang LaSalle, said the sale is a good sign for the local real estate market.

“There’s been an overall lack of new construction since 2008,” Robinson said. “Anytime you’re able to sell 50 acres of land, it shows new development might be heading back into the market.”

Jones Lang LaSalle declined to disclose the sale price, but the asking price was $4 million.

Established in 1999 and being built in stages, Intech Park is a 210-acre office and research park that includes nine office buildings totaling 900,000 square feet of space, as well as three hotels, a daycare center, restaurants and other businesses.

When finished, the development is expected to include 2.5 million square feet of office, hotel and retail space.

  • Adding or moving space?
    Here's the question I want IBJ to answer: When an existing company (H-E)buys land and says it is going to build a new lab, what happens to the existing lab and office space in another location in Marion County? Heritage-Environmental (along with the air permits, exceedences, risks that accompany such an enterprise that deals in hazardous waste product recycling) now has labs and offices on the west side between Washington and Morris Streets. Once the area was only farmland, but now subdivisions dot the township which means more schools are needed (costing more money) but the assessed valuation of the township overall, which includes thousands of acres of untaxed airport property, is down. Will Wayne Twp. lose more tenants to another "trendier" township?

My name is Mr Henry Josh and i live in the USA California and life is worth living right now for me and my family and all this is because of one man sent by GOD to help me and my family, i once had a life filled with sorrow because my first SON needed a kidney transplant and all our savings were going towards his medications and this normally leaves us with no money to pay our bills or even put enough food on our table and our rent was due and no funds to pay these bills and life felt so unfair to me and every night my wife will cry herself to sleep every night until one day, i was browsing through yahoo answers and i saw a striking advert of a man that gives out personal loans and that the offer is opened to all and i have heard so many things about internet scams but at this point of my life, i was very desperate and ready to take any risk and at the end of the day, i applied for this loan and from one step to another, i got my loan within 12 hours through bank transfer and you know, it was all like a dream and i called Mr Daniel Jones A Man who is the GOD sent lender i found and said, i have received my loan and he smiled stating that to GOD be the glory and i was so shocked as i have never ever seen anyone with such a GOD fearing and kind heart and today, i am the happiest man on earth because by GOD’S grace, my SON kidney transplant was successful and today he is healthy, i and my family are living very comfortable and happy and if you are in my former situation or in serious and legitimate need of a loan, you can reach this GOD sent lender via fidelityloanfirm@outlook.com

  4. Elected officials, like Mourdock, get vested in 8 years. It takes 10 years for all other public employees, most of whom make a lot less money. So much for the promise to finish out his term.

  5. Great state treasurer and a good man!! Just curious if the folks who didn't quite understand his quote would like to tell my daughter-in-law that God didn't intend her! Mourdock's comment was correct but twisted and the article didn't mention that his opponent and the press let the impression stand that Mourdock meant that the rape was intended. Stupid people!!
