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. If I were a developer I would be looking at the Fountain Square and Fletcher Place neighborhoods instead of Broad Ripple. I would avoid the dysfunctional BRVA with all of their headaches. It's like deciding between a Blackberry or an iPhone 5s smartphone. BR is greatly in need of updates. It has become stale and outdated. Whereas Fountain Square, Fletcher Place and Mass Ave have become the "new" Broad Ripples. Every time I see people on the strip in BR on the weekend I want to ask them, "How is it you are not familiar with Fountain Square or Mass Ave? You have choices and you choose BR?" Long vacant storefronts like the old Scholar's Inn Bake House and ZA, both on prominent corners, hurt the village's image. Many business on the strip could use updated facades. Cigarette butt covered sidewalks and graffiti covered walls don't help either. The whole strip just looks like it needs to be power washed. I know there is more to the BRV than the 700-1100 blocks of Broad Ripple Ave, but that is what people see when they think of BR. It will always be a nice place live, but is quickly becoming a not-so-nice place to visit.

  2. I sure hope so and would gladly join a law suit against them. They flat out rob people and their little punk scam artist telephone losers actually enjoy it. I would love to run into one of them some day!!

  3. Biggest scam ever!! Took 307 out of my bank ac count. Never received a single call! They prey on new small business and flat out rob them! Do not sign up with these thieves. I filed a complaint with the ftc. I suggest doing the same ic they robbed you too.

  4. Woohoo! We're #200!!! Absolutely disgusting. Bring on the congestion. Indianapolis NEEDS it.

  5. So Westfield invested about $30M in developing Grand Park and attendance to date is good enough that local hotel can't meet the demand. Carmel invested $180M in the Palladium - which generates zero hotel demand for its casino acts. Which Mayor made the better decision?
