Office/Retail projectA two-building office and retail complex at the corner of Meridian and 96th Street will include a Paradise Bakery & Cafe and a McAlister's Deli. Landmark Properties is developing the 45,700-square-foot project just south of McDonald's. One of the buildings will be three stories and the other will be two. Both will include retail on the first floor. The project was designed by Noblesville-based Curran Architecture.

  • You know what else would go great there? A Starbucks!
  • Anyone know whats gonna happen with the closed Kro-ghetto at 96th and Meridian?
  • The parking lot in that rendering looks great!
  • this looks like a nice development (again, higher density!), but i agree with liberty bell (ha ha - nice name) with the parking lot. i hope that will be towards the back. this city, for some reason, neglects to put buildings right up on the sidewalk. that creates sprawl and it's unfortunate and annoys me everytime i see a project like that. we should be encouraging pedestrian traffic with every new development (less car trips, more calories burned). but again, this will be a nice overall addition to a marquis area in need of some polishing...
  • The parking is on the west side of the building. The rendering is from the west looking east. Meridian Street would be int he background. The building is pushed up as close to Meridian Street as zoning ordinances will permit, with just a drive lane between the grass/landscaping that will exist between Meridian and the buildings.
  • I'm glad Curran Architecture has been chosen for this building. I like a lot of their other work, like the animal hospital on Rangeline Road in Carmel. Their style is a lot of midwestern-prairie style updated with a very clean, modern chic.
  • Shawn, thanks for the clarification!

  1. I am so impressed that the smoking ban FAILED in Kokomo! I might just move to your Awesome city!

  2. way to much breweries being built in indianapolis. its going to be saturated market, if not already. when is enough, enough??

  3. This house is a reminder of Hamilton County history. Its position near the interstate is significant to remember what Hamilton County was before the SUPERBROKERs, Navients, commercial parks, sprawling vinyl villages, and acres of concrete retail showed up. What's truly Wasteful is not reusing a structure that could still be useful. History isn't confined to parks and books.

  4. To compare Connor Prairie or the Zoo to a random old house is a big ridiculous. If it were any where near the level of significance there wouldn't be a major funding gap. Put a big billboard on I-69 funded by the tourism board for people to come visit this old house, and I doubt there would be any takers, since other than age there is no significance whatsoever. Clearly the tax payers of Fishers don't have a significant interest in this project, so PLEASE DON'T USE OUR VALUABLE MONEY. Government money is finite and needs to be utilized for the most efficient and productive purposes. This is far from that.

  5. I only tried it 2x and didn't think much of it both times. With the new apts plus a couple other of new developments on Guilford, I am surprised it didn't get more business. Plus you have a couple of subdivisions across the street from it. I hope Upland can keep it going. Good beer and food plus a neat environment and outdoor seating.
