  • Buffalo Wild Wings GlendaleBuffalo Wild Wings plans to relocate its Broad Ripple restaurant to a new freestanding building at the southwest corner of 62nd and Rural streets outside Glendale Town Center. Shopping center owner Kite Realty Group is selling the vacant property. The 7,300-square-foot restaurant is scheduled to open at the end of May, said franchise owner Dan Holland. He said the location is a better fit than Broad Ripple for the chain's evolution into a more family-driven concept. It also offers more convenient parking for customers.
  • RA Nightclub, a new offering from the owners of Brewstone Beer Company, is taking the former home of Peppers in Broad Ripple. RA Nightclub IndyThe dance club and entertainment complex is taking 13,336 square feet on the first floor and basement of the building at the southeast corner of College and Broad Ripple avenues. The space is across the street from a new parking garage and retail development by Keystone Group. RA, which is slated to open Dec. 13, is not taking the vacant first-floor space at the corner. The restaurant Brewstone opened earlier this year in the 15,000-square-foot former home of Music Mill on 82nd Street west of Dean Road.
  • Popeyes Louisiana Kitchen is building a new restaurant at 2902 Madison Ave., on the site of a building that over the years housed Chicago Grill and Big Kahuna's Pizza. The new Popeyes is part of a mini building boom in the area. Newer O'Reilly Auto Parts and Family Dollar stores have sprouted up across the street, and a new location for the used-car dealership Carplex is under construction at the former home of Sport Bowl along East Street between Hanna and National avenues.
  • Mo's A Place for Steaks is planning a grand opening next week for its new location at Clay Terrace in Carmel. The restaurant plans an open-to-the-public grand opening event starting at 6 p.m. Dec. 13 with free hors d'oeuvres and $5 cocktails with all proceeds benefiting the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. The restaurant will open at 4:30 p.m. for dinner service seven days a week.
  • Southern Kitchen, a new soul-food restaurant "with a healthy side", is taking a 2,200-square-foot space in a strip center along 96th Street just east of Interstate 69 in Fishers. Owners Deborah Slack and Denise Mirro plan to open the restaurant, which is taking a space behind Huntington Bank and next to AT&T, in the spring.
  • Qdoba is opening a new restaurant in Southern Plaza. The popular chain is taking 2,500 square feet in a former Blockbuster Video location at 4200 S. East St.
  • Do you know?
    Anybody know what is going in at Rural and English; and, at Keystone & English?
  • Pyramid Popeye's
    Not sure if it was mentioned, but a Popeye's is now open at 86th. and Michigan on the NW side.
  • Popeyes
    Popeye's also filed a zoning case at 42nd & Pendleton Pike in Lawrence, which used to be...Popeye's.
    • Hamilton Town Center
      What is being built next to Olive Garden?
    • popeyes
      what is up with popeyes building a new building a block away from their closed store on East Washington Street? I'm all for businesses moving to the Near Eastside but that just seems bizarre.
    • HTC
      Panda Express is being built next to Olive Garden.
    • Popeyes
      The old Popeyes locations (that all closed) were owned by a franchisee that skipped out on paying a lot in taxes I believe. The new locations are being built by Popeyes Corporate. There may be some legal issues or something with the shuttered locations.
    • soon to be old Buffalo Wild Wings location
      So, any thoughts, ideas, news about what will happen to the location that BWW is currently in Broad Ripple?
    • new restaurant
      thought you might like southern kitchen
    • Former Burger King Location
      The Popeyes location on Pendleton Piike used to be a Burger King. The previous franchised Popeyes locations were 46th/Arlington, 38th/Keystone and Washington/Sherman
    • To Marsha (re- English Ave)
      No idea. I've been trying to figure it out for a bit, too. I'm assuming nothing exciting, but will report back on this thread if I hear.

      Just a convenience store: DROP OFF 10070 CANBY HOME PLACE ADD L118 THRU L124 / NEW 1 STY COMM BLDG 3246 SF PER PLANS / CDR#359311 / (CONVENIENCE STORE) / CENTER TWP
    • RA
      How did RA get thru the BRVA seemingly unscathed?? More BR bars are fine as long as they have parking?
    • BRVA
      The BRVA really is a joke. They fight tooth and nail against Kilroys, but don't care about RA.
    • RA & BRVA
      I'm guessing there was no fight to be had over RA, since it's a nightclub replacing a nightclub. If Pepper's was legal, then the new place would be legal w/o any need for a hearing, w/o any opportunity for public input.

    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.
