Eagle LandingTwo local developers are pitching retailers on a proposed 700,000-square-foot power center in Brownsburg. The massive project seeks to capitalize on a growing population center and the newly constructed Ronald Reagan Parkway. It would sit at the northeast corner of Interstate 74 and Ronald Reagan Parkway. Plans call for retail including three anchors of more than 100,000 square feet each, several restaurants, office space and two hotels. Local developers Eureka! Ventures and Thompson Thrift are partnering on the project, which is tentatively called Eagle Landing. Plans call for groundbreaking next summer and completion by Fall 2010.
  • How exciting!! Brownsburg can have their very own Applebees, Bed Bath & Beyond and Old Navy!
  • Well, this is the first good news that we've seen in a while for people who love sprawl, so I guess that's something...
  • It's about time someone develop that area. It's been overlooked for a long time. O'Reilly speedway is a stone's throw away from this. Plus, from Lafayette square to Brownsburg there is now retail. I believe this development will be highly successful and the whole area around it will boom.
  • The traffic on 56th street, a two lane road, is already out of control. Why must every corn field be developed in this area? Is it so difficult to drive 10 minutes to Avon to shop?
  • I agree Tony, but hate to see the farm land go. Maybe the announced development will get the highway contractors to finish that interchange and 56th st so we can finally be finished with construction on 74. It will also take pressure off 267 interchange (horrible traffic).

    BTW- Why do all westside road construction projects always happen in May???
  • Hey now, Sophia...we already have an Applebees in the Burg :)

    The sprawl is inevitable, but I will gladly welcome some new shopping and eating establishments in Brownsburg.
  • There are plans to develop 56th into 5 lanes. But, somehow the Hendricks county powers have progressed slowly on this.The county has needed a north-south road for decades. And, yes it is very very difficult to drive to Avon from anywhere north of 56th.
  • I'll believe five lanes when it happens - I've heard about it since 2001. I believe this will be finished 2 years before that project is supposed to be finished unless they have moved up the deadline to meet this sprawl.
  • I would stay as far away from Thompson Thrift as posable. If it's the same compeny. there Robbing Terre Haute blind. them along with the Gibsons. there the new Mafea in Terre Haute.
  • Really more shopping? I welcome the tax base, but hate the fact that we cannot drive more than 30 min to go anywhere. Are we all that lazy?
  • Bob,

    Take your time when you type.

    Translation of typo's ....

    posable = possible
    compeny. = company,
    there = they're
    them = Them
    there = They're
    Mafea = mafia
  • Looks like I'm not the only one who hit the sauce tonight! :lol:

    That or Bob is as dumb as Tony George, sho also was borned in Terre haute.

  • I don't mind farm land going away. If any developer is spending money in this economy, then we better welcome the investment. That farm land was probably just bringing a Fed subsidy anyway.
  • You may have noticed that the siteplan says Eagles Landing, instead of Eagle Landing. The developers now are leaning toward the singular eagle... Which do you prefer?
  • Cory, does anyone really ever pay attention to a(nother) big-box shopping center name?
  • Nah, just me. When I was in Florida, I wrote a story about subdivision names after some developer called their project Redneck Acres. Classy.
  • LMAO. Put that story up sometime...we all need a good laugh.

    Maybe some developers will get jarred out of Olde Towne Station Eagle Centre Highland Woods Parke Place Cherry Creek Landing mode. (Did I hit 'em all?)
  • I think either...

    have a nice ring to them.
  • OK're NOT the only one paying attention.

    How about a Property Lines reader contest for the lamest strip mall/power center/big box acres development name?

    Here's my entry: Asphalt Acres Big Box Power Center

    Oh, wait. That's too descriptive.

  1. Great article and post scripts by Mike L (Great addition to IBJ BTW). Bobby's stubborn as a mule, and doubt if he ever comes back to IU. But the love he would receive would be enormous. Hope he shows some time, but not counting on it.

  2. When the Indiana GOP was going around the State selling the Voucher bill they were promising people that the vouchers would only be for public charter schools. They lied. As usual.

  4. Jim, your "misleading" numbers comment is spot on. This is the spin these posers are putting on it. News flash, fans: these guys lie. They are not publicly traded so no one holds them accountable for anything they say. The TV numbers are so miniscule to begin with any "increase" produces double digit "growth" numbers. It's ridiculous to think that anything these guys have done has awakened the marketplace. What have they done? Consolidate the season so they run more races on consecutive weekends? And this creates "momentum." Is that the same momentum you enjoy when you don't race between August and March? Keep in mind that you are running teams who barely make ends meet ragged over the summer to accomplish this brilliant strategy of avoiding the NFL while you run your season finale at midnight on the East Coast. But I should not obfuscate my own point: any "ratings increase" is exactly what Jim points to - the increased availability of NBC Sports in households. Look fans, I love the sport to but these posers are running it off a cliff. Miles wants to declare victory and then run for Mayor. I could go on and on but bottom line for God's sake don't believe a word they say. Note to Anthony - try doing just a little research instead of reporting what these pretenders say and then offering an "opinion" no more informed than the average fan.

  5. If he's finally planning to do the right thing and resign, why not do it before the election? Waiting until after means what - s special election at tax payer expense? Appointment (by whom?) thus robbing the voters of their chance to choose? Does he accrue some additional financial advantage to waiting, like extra pension payments? What's in it for him? That's the question that needs to be asked.
