Castleton Square Mall is set to welcome a couple of new entries to its food court lineup, including a restaurant that made its Indianapolis debut just last year.

• Freshii and Starbucks are slated to open next month at the northeast-side shopping center. Freshii, a Canadian concept serving burritos, wraps, soups and salads, will take space next to TGI Friday’s. The only other Freshii in the city is at The Fashion Mall at Keystone. Starbucks, meanwhile, will be in Castleton’s Center Court.

• Foundry Provisions, a coffee shop at 16th and Alabama streets, is open for breakfast and lunch. It serves coffee from local business Julian Coffee Roasters, in addition to pastries and paninis.

Jack’s Donuts, a New Castle stalwart, has opened its second location, in the Bonn Building in Saxony Village near Interstate 69. The popular shop has been serving doughnuts for more than 50 years.

• Barnes and Noble Bookstores is moving to the former Borders Books location at River Road Crossing at the Fashion Mall in May.

Sensu, at 110 W. Main St. in Carmel next to Detour, closed late last month.

And what Retail Roundup would be complete without a yogurt shop mention, or three?

• Pearings Frozen Yogurt & Beyond is open at 6 W. Washington St. This is the first location for the locally based yogurt operation.

• Cultured Swirl opened April 19 at 1026 Virginia Ave. in the Fountain Square neighborhood.

• YoYo Yogurt also opened April 19, in the Anson Marketplace on East State Road 334 west of Zionsville. This is the Fort Wayne-based operation’s first location in the metro area.

    Please tell me that there will be more cupcake shops to go along with all of those frozen yogurt places, 'cause if it's one thing Indy doesn't have enough of is frozen yogurt and cupcakes!
  • Openings
    While a closing seems to make news in Carmel, I won't steel your thunder about all the new openings that haven't been reported.
  • Are you kidding?
    Bruce? I'm sick of reading everything they think we need or want to know about Carmel! Hell, if they could print it we'd probably be reading about each and every residents daily bowel movement ! It's gold up there, after all.... And to the poster complaining about yogurt shops.... Let me guess.... Former TCBY owner? Get real! Until just very recently indy had virtually zero shops and now that we actually have a few we have too many? Lol....
  • 22nd/Delaware
    Whats going in here? Lots of activity, construction, and cleaning up that location.
  • Haters gonna hate
    Bruce, please ignore the ignorant comments from Marshall. If you actually care about urban development, you should care about about development in Carmel...theres a heck of alot more urban development there than in Indy.

    Are you kidding me? There's a heck of a lot more urban development going on in Carmel than in Indianapolis? Sophia Square has been in Carmel for well over a year now and has the same number of retail tenants as it did then. Meanwhile, Indianapolis has multiple large apartment complexes under construction right now, most of which are larger than the ones in Carmel.

  1. I am not by any means judging whether this is a good or bad project. It's pretty simple, the developers are not showing a hardship or need for this economic incentive. It is a vacant field, the easiest for development, and the developer already has the money to invest $26 million for construction. If they can afford that, they can afford to pay property taxes just like the rest of the residents do. As well, an average of $15/hour is an absolute joke in terms of economic development. Get in high paying jobs and maybe there's a different story. But that's the problem with this ask, it is speculative and users are just not known.

  2. Shouldn't this be a museum

  3. I don't have a problem with higher taxes, since it is obvious that our city is not adequately funded. And Ballard doesn't want to admit it, but he has increased taxes indirectly by 1) selling assets and spending the money, 2) letting now private entities increase user fees which were previously capped, 3) by spending reserves, and 4) by heavy dependence on TIFs. At the end, these are all indirect tax increases since someone will eventually have to pay for them. It's mathematics. You put property tax caps ("tax cut"), but you don't cut expenditures (justifiably so), so you increase taxes indirectly.

  4. Marijuana is the safest natural drug grown. Addiction is never physical. Marijuana health benefits are far more reaching then synthesized drugs. Abbott, Lilly, and the thousands of others create poisons and label them as medication. There is no current manufactured drug on the market that does not pose immediate and long term threat to the human anatomy. Certainly the potency of marijuana has increased by hybrids and growing techniques. However, Alcohol has been proven to destroy more families, relationships, cause more deaths and injuries in addition to the damage done to the body. Many confrontations such as domestic violence and other crimes can be attributed to alcohol. The criminal activities and injustices that surround marijuana exists because it is illegal in much of the world. If legalized throughout the world you would see a dramatic decrease in such activities and a savings to many countries for legal prosecutions, incarceration etc in regards to marijuana. It indeed can create wealth for the government by collecting taxes, creating jobs, etc.... I personally do not partake. I do hope it is legalized throughout the world.

  5. Build the resevoir. If built this will provide jobs and a reason to visit Anderson. The city needs to do something to differentiate itself from other cities in the area. Kudos to people with vision that are backing this project.
