  • The Avenue IndianapolisWhich Wich Superior Sandwiches has signed on as a first-floor tenant of The Avenue, the Buckingham Cos. apartment development at 10th Street and Indiana Avenue adjacent to the IUPUI campus (rendering shown). The Dallas-based restaurant chain is taking 2,150 square feet in the newly constructed building. The Indianapolis market has been on the Which Wich target list at least since 2008, when Property Lines first reported the chain's interest in opening 10 new local restaurants.
  • Wolfies Grill, a woodsy themed sports bar chain with locations in Noblesville and Fishers, is planning a new restaurant in Carmel. The restaurant and bar is taking 4,700 square feet in the Merchants Square shopping center, just around the corner from MCL Cafeteria & Bakery.
  • Orange Leaf, the frozen yogurt shop, is opening a new location on the south side. The Oklahoma City-based chain is taking about 2,000 square feet at 6845 Bluff Road, just north of Southport Road. The chain already has locations in Carmel and Fishers and is looking to open several more.
  • Yo Joy, an independent frozen-yogurt shop, is planned for 2,300 square feet in Carmel at 9873 N. Michigan Road, in front of a Home Depot. The self-serve shop is scheduled to open in December.
  • Black Acre Brewing Co. has filed plans to take about 2,400 square feet at 5632 East Washington St. The brewery and tasting room is planned for the same retail building that's home to Jockamo Pizza and Legend Classic Cafe. IBJ first reported on the plans in July.
  • Kobayashi Sushi and Asian Kitchen is taking a former Noble Roman's in Noblesville that most recently was home to Dick's Bodacious Bar-B-Q. The 3,400-square-foot restaurant is on Greenfield Avenue, just west of Ind. 37.
  • Firehouse Subs has filed plans to open a new restaurant in a Walmart-anchored center in Beech Grove. The restaurant is taking 1,800 square feet in the center along Emerson Avenue just south of Interstate 465. The Florida-based chain already has restaurants near 86th Street and Michigan Avenue and in Avon, Noblesville and Plainfield.
  • Za Pizzeria in Broad Ripple is expanding, taking former office space on the second floor of its building at 801 Broad Ripple Ave. The project will add about 1,400 square feet of dining spot to the tiny restaurant. An earlier post is here.
  • The Avenue
    In addition to Which Wich, I noticed a sign for Moe's Southwest Grill on The Avenue's construction fencing today.
  • southside
    Does anyone know what they are doing with the old Krispy Kreme building on US 31 South? It's been closed a few years but now they are working on the building.
    • Krispy Kreme
      Would like to know also what is going in former white castle on 135 in greenwood.
    • Dicks BBQ
      Are all the Dicks Dodaus bbq closed now
    • Orange Leaf
      There is also a location that opened in Avon. I too noticed Moe's listed on the fence screen for The Avenue.

      Have you heard any details about a business moving into the neighborhood commercial center at 25th and Delaware?
    • Mongo BBQ
      BD's Mongolian BBQ in Carmel closed last week.
      • Indy Restaurants
        I ate at an Olive Garden last night, it was delicious. I then got dessert from Applebee's and followed it up with a nightcap at Chili's.

        Hoping to make it to this new place called Outback Steakhouse that just opened next week. I heard they do great things with onions.
      • Dick's BBQ
        The downtown Dick's (50 N. Penn) is still open.
      • Cheesecake please
        Will somebody just hurry up and open a Cheesecake Factory in the former Nordstrom location downtown? Has there ever been a more perfect location for one of those?
      • BD's
        BoomBozz Famous Pizza is taking over the BD's location in WESTFIELD.
      • 56th and Emerson
        Does anyone know what is happening with all the empty retail at 56th and Emerson? Sure would be nice to get some shops and casual restaurants in that area.

        Any update on La Jolla in Broad Ripple? Is it closed?

        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?
