The Metropolitan Development Commission has given its blessing to a new CVS store along 82nd Street just east of Interstate 69. The 12,900-square-foot store will replace two of the 10 one-story office buildings that now occupy the 7-acre site at 8202 Clearvista Parkway. The property owner, Regency Centre Investments Inc., won the board's approval despite a recommendation for denial from the city's planning staff. Regency made several concessions to planners and neighborhood groups, including switching the primary building material to brick from EIFS, or external insulation finishing system, and adding more sidewalks. The planning staff wanted the developer to move the CVS closer to 82nd Street to save mature trees in the existing office building's courtyard and to lower windows to at or below eye level as a security feature.

  • Well, Dr. Aziz ought to be thrilled. Yes, we need another CVS, yessir. With only 5 CVS stores, plus 4 Walgreens, 3 Krogers, 3 Marsh's, a Meijer and a WalMart within three miles of this location, it's like a veritable drugstore wilderness out there.
  • I actually think this is kind of cool. Ok it's a CVS so how exciting can this be? But I think it will be better than what is there now. They are using brick, adding sidewalks. You think Walgreens is looking at buying those places across the street?
  • Is What It Is
    These areas need larger scale planning efforts that have actual authority at some level if a real "place" is going to happen. Upgrades to individual outlots are just too inhibited by the broader context they're in - especially how they are all bordered by heavy through traffic and disconnected subdivisions. This is very difficult to change incrementally.

  1. I had read earlier this spring that Noodles & Co was going to open in the Fishers Marketplace (which is SR 37 and 131st St, not 141st St, just FYI). Any word on that? Also, do you happen to know what is being built in Carmel at Pennsylvania and Old Meridian? May just be an office building but I'm not sure.

  2. I'm sorry, but you are flat out wrong. There are few tracks in the world with the history of IMS and probably NO OTHER as widely known and recognized. I don't care what you think about the stat of Indy Car racing, these are pretty hard things to dispute.

  3. Also wondering if there is an update on the Brockway Pub-Danny Boy restaurant/taproom that was planned for the village as well?

  4. Why does the majority get to trample on the rights of the minority? You do realize that banning gay marriage does not rid the world of gay people, right? They are still going to be around and they are still going to continue to exist. The best way to get it all out of the spotlight? LEGALIZE IT! If gay marriage is legal, they will get to stop trying to push for it and you will get to stop seeing it all over the news. Why do Christians get to decide what is moral?? Why do you get to push your religion on others? How would legalizing gay marriage expose their lifestyle to your children? By the way, their lifestyle is going to continue whether gay marriage is legalized or not. It's been legal in Canada for quite a while now and they seem to be doing just fine. What about actual rules handed down by God? What about not working on Sundays? What about obeying your parents? What about adultery? These are in the 10 Commandments, the most important of God's rules. Yet they are all perfectly legal. What about divorce? Only God is allowed to dissolve a marriage so why don't you work hard to get divorce banned? Why do you get to pick and choose the parts of the Bible you care about?

  5. Look at the bright side. With the new Lowe's call center, that means 1000 jobs at $10 bucks an hour. IMS has to be drooling over all that disposable income. If those employees can save all their extra money after bills, in five years they can go to the race LIVE. Can you say attendance boost?
