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... 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). 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.
    • 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.

    3. In the first sentance "As a resident of one of these new Carmel Apartments the issue the local governments need to discuss are build quality & price." need a way to edit

    4. As a resident of one of these new Carmel Apartments the issue the local governments need to discuss is build quality & price. First none of these places is worth $1100 for a one bedroom. Downtown Carmel or Keystone at the Crossing in Indy. It doesn't matter. All require you to get in your car to get just about anywhere you need to go. I'm in one of the Carmel apartments now where after just 2.5 short years one of the kitchen cabinet doors is crooked and lawn and property maintenance seems to be lacking my old Indianapolis apartment which cost $300 less. This is one of the new star apartments. As they keep building throughout the area "deals" will start popping up creating shoppers. If your property is falling apart after year 3 what will it look like after year 5 or 10??? Why would one stay here if they could move to a new Broad Ripple in 2 to 3 years or another part of the Far Northside?? The complexes aren't going to let the "poor" move in without local permission so that's not that problem, but it the occupancy rate drops suddenly because the "Young" people moved back to Indy then look out.

    5. Why are you so concerned about Ace hardware? I don't understand why anyone goes there! Every time ive gone in the past, they don't have what I need and I end up going to the big box stores. I understand the service aspect and that they try to be helpful but if they are going to survive I think they might need to carry more specialty parts.
