Southsiders may have wondered what's going on at the northeast corner of Madison Avenue and County Line Road, across from Lowe's and McDonald's. Well, wonder no more. Locally based Peacock Companies is planning a new retail strip with outlots including a drugstore and bank. Madison RetailThe company has razed an old SBC call center and acquired the Floors To Go building, which also will be torn down. The roughly 7-acre site is slated to get a Walgreens on the corner, a Flagstar Bank along Madison (pictured) and a new home for Floors To Go along County Line. Peacock Companies Owner Michael House said a new lifestyle development at Greenwood Park Mall is helping spur new retail interest in the area. Speaking of the mall, a new Starbucks is moving in next door to Pac Sun in the JC Penney/Von Maur wing.
NEW: Not all news is rosy in Greenwood this week. The Damon's restaurant has closed, the owner says. Other Damon's locations in Southport and Martinsville remain open.

  • (YAWN)...more strip centers. Dress them up with all the brick and decorative precast you want...it's still architectural pollution.
  • Please Wish I Lived in Carmel, show us pictures of the Exterior and Interior of you place of work and home so that we may learn of the acceptable quality we should strive to achieve.
  • Um, the NE corner of the intersection is in Indianapolis, technically. Walgreens had been rumored for the SE corner of the intersection, which is practically falling apart, for some time.

    The Damon's in Greenwood was isolated from all the other development on SR135. Plus, the service stunk.
  • Thanks Joe. Headline adjusted.
  • Carmel is just as bad, man. So is Fishers, Brownsburg, Lawrence, you name it, Wasipson. I'm just saying it would be nice if we'd get some more creativity around the Indy metro.

  1. Can your dog sign a marriage license or personally state that he wishes to join you in a legal union? If not then no, you cannot marry him. When you teach him to read, write, and speak a discernible language, then maybe you'll have a reasonable argument. Thanks for playing!

  2. Look no further than Mike Rowe, the former host of dirty jobs, who was also a classically trained singer.

  3. Current law states income taxes are paid to the county of residence not county of income source. The most likely scenario would be some alteration of the income tax distribution formula so money earned in Marion co. would go to Marion Co by residents of other counties would partially be distributed to Marion co. as opposed to now where the entirety is held by the resident's county.

  4. This is more same-old, same-old from a new generation of non-progressive 'progressives and fear mongers. One only needs to look at the economic havoc being experienced in California to understand the effect of drought on economies and people's lives. The same mindset in California turned a blind eye to the growth of population and water needs in California, defeating proposal after proposal to build reservoirs, improve water storage and delivery infrastructure...and the price now being paid for putting the demands of a raucous minority ahead of the needs of many. Some people never, never learn..

  5. I wonder if I can marry him too? Considering we are both males, wouldn't that be a same sex marriage as well? If they don't honor it, I'll scream discrimination just like all these people have....
