Kite logoKite Realty Group Trust has landed Goodwill, Dollar Tree and Mexico City Grill for a renovation of its Fishers Station shopping center at the northeast corner of 116th Street and Allisonville Road in Fishers. An updated site plan for the Marsh-anchored center shows a 15,250-square-foot Goodwill store near the Marsh and a Dollar Tree on the other end of the center. Outlots at the shopping center include Midas, Key Bank and Arby's. In a separate development across Allisonville Road from the center, a Donatos restaurant has closed and is being replaced by Farmers Bank. Fishers Station isn't the only local center Kite is remodeling to add new anchor tenants. The locally based real estate investment trust also is adding space for a Nordstrom Rack, Container Store and BuyBuy Baby to its Shops at Rivers Edge center along 82nd Street at Dean Road. A previous post on that redevelopment project is here.

    Seriously, Goodwill and Dollar Tree anchoring a strip mall at 116th and Allisonville? When did that become "inner city"?

    Check cashing, pawn shop, and the buy-here pay-here car lot can't be far behind.

  • Wow!
    I'm titillated at the thought of a Goodwill and Dollar Tree anchoring a strip mall in this area. Can't wait until this becomes the next best thing of Indy. Another GHETTO.
  • Yeah
    This is what happens when you overbuild strip centers, you have to fill them with something!
  • This is what happens...
    This is what happens when people want to keep pushing further out to buy a new house, and leave the old, "new houses" behind since they arent new anymore...
  • Interesting...
    Half the comments on here seemed to be based on ignorance. Furthermore, to the person who mentioned GHETTO. Go look up the definition. And on another note - look up the 990 for Goodwill Industries - see what they do and how the money runs. You might find it interesting. If you don't know what a 990 is (nevermind).
  • Response to Ghetto and Thundermutt
    To Dustin & Thundermutt - I would think that having stores is better than having vacancy. In addition, just because you live on the northeast side doesn't necessarily mean you can't enjoy a bargin. Seriously... I come from an above average HHI and my kids love to shop Goodwill for vintage and "scrub" clothes in addition a Dollar Store is a great place to buy cleaning supplies, school supplies, and even some brand name items for cheaper than what you might get at a higher end superstore.

    With a screen name like Thundermutt I don't know that I would be casting stones.
  • Wow...
    ...like a few of the other posters, I am amazed at the apparent ignorance of some of my fellow IBJ readers. The Goodwill is now "ghetto"? There isn't ANYTHING a person might be interested in purchasing at Dollar Store that they might already be paying more for at Target? Not everyone who lives in Fishers, or even Carmel, for that matter, is "well off" and above saving a few dollars when the chance presents itself. Geez...
  • Goodwill loves locating in the suburbs
    I think some people are missing part of why Goodwill has built more and more stores in nice areas over time. It isn't just for the shoppers they get there (although you'd be surprised how many shop there that could go to somewhere that costs more) but they love locating there also because you get great things donated in the suburbs. The quality of items that Goodwill can get donated in places like Hamilton County vs. the ghetto is night and day. Once you get high quality merchandise donated finding the buyers for it is the easy part. You'll get bargain shoppers in the burbs coming in along with people that drive out to the suburban Goodwill locations because they know they have the best stuff.
  • Goodwill just moving
    The Goodwill is just relocating from the Allisonville location that has been there for over 15 years (next to the new Sahms location). Also...one reason people in Hamilton county have nice things is that they are smart with their dollars. Why pay $2.50 for the same toilet cleaner you can get fot a dollar?
  • Goodwill at Southport and Emerson Ave.
    My favorite Goodwill is at S. Emerson and Southport Rd. The Super Target across the street donates some of it's surplus to that Goodwill so you can find a lot of Target stuff there for a lot less money.
    • GOODWILL AT SOUTHPORT AND EMERSON
      WHERE IS THAT GOODWILL? I KNOW OF ONE AT COUNTY LINE AND EMERSON BUT I DON'T REMEMBER ONE AT SOUTHPORT AND EMERSON.
    • Love GW
      Great to hear Goodwill is moving in. My parents live nearby and I'm hoping this will help me when I clean out the basement with them! This strip mall need some solid tenants.

    1. By Mr. Lee's own admission, he basically ran pro-bono ads on the billboard. Paying advertisers didn't want ads on a controversial, ugly billboard that turned off customers. At least one of Mr. Lee's free advertisers dropped out early because they found that Mr. Lee's advertising was having negative impact. So Mr. Lee is disingenous to say the city now owes him for lost revenue. Mr. Lee quickly realized his monstrosity had a dim future and is trying to get the city to bail him out. And that's why the billboard came down so quickly.

    2. Merchants Square is back. The small strip center to the south of 116th is 100% leased, McAlister’s is doing well in the outlot building. The former O’Charleys is leased but is going through permitting with the State and the town of Carmel. Mac Grill is closing all of their Indy locations (not just Merchants) and this will allow for a new restaurant concept to backfill both of their locations. As for the north side of 116th a new dinner movie theater and brewery is under construction to fill most of the vacancy left by Hobby Lobby and Old Navy.

    3. Yes it does have an ethics commission which enforce the law which prohibits 12 specific items. google it

    4. Thanks for reading and replying. If you want to see the differentiation for research, speaking and consulting, check out the spreadsheet I linked to at the bottom of the post; it is broken out exactly that way. I can only include so much detail in a blog post before it becomes something other than a blog post.

    5. 1. There is no allegation of corruption, Marty, to imply otherwise if false. 2. Is the "State Rule" a law? I suspect not. 3. Is Mr. Woodruff obligated via an employment agreement (contractual obligation) to not work with the engineering firm? 4. In many states a right to earn a living will trump non-competes and other contractual obligations, does Mr. Woodruff's personal right to earn a living trump any contractual obligations that might or might not be out there. 5. Lawyers in state government routinely go work for law firms they were formally working with in their regulatory actions. You can see a steady stream to firms like B&D from state government. It would be interesting for IBJ to do a review of current lawyers and find out how their past decisions affected the law firms clients. Since there is a buffer between regulated company and the regulator working for a law firm technically is not in violation of ethics but you have to wonder if decisions were made in favor of certain firms and quid pro quo jobs resulted. Start with the DOI in this review. Very interesting.
