Developer to move HQ to Carmel, create 25 jobs

Back to TopCommentsE-mailPrintBookmark and Share

A Cicero-based developer of senior housing and care properties will move its headquarters to Carmel later this month and begin hiring an estimated 25 new employees.

Mainstreet Property Group LLC will invest $800,000 to lease and equip 7,120 square feet of office space at 14390 Clay Terrace Blvd., according to firm officials. The company, which currently employs 20 workers, will begin hiring for additional real estate development and management officials later this year.

Founded in 2002, Mainstreet has been one of the fastest-growing companies in central Indiana in recent years. It currently has some $200 million in projects under construction.

In June 2012, Mainstreet launched an initial public offering for affiliated company HealthLease Properties Real Estate Investment Trust that raised $110 million.
Mainstreet, the largest shareholder in HealthLease, develops properties for the REIT’s portfolio. HealthLease, which posted revenue of $25 million in 2012, holds 15 facilities in the United States and Canada, with an additional 13 to come after the expected close of a $141.7 million acquisition.

“We’ve had a great run in Cicero … but our growth and the June 2012 launch of our public REIT necessitated us to look at a move,” said Zeke Turner, Mainstreet chairman and CEO, in a prepared release. "Clay Terrace offers a desirable, functional space with a closer proximity to our employees and our partners.”

The Indiana Economic Development Corp. offered Mainstreet up to $325,000 in conditional tax credits and up to $20,000 in training grants based on the company’s current plans. These tax credits are performance-based, meaning the company is not eligible to claim incentives until employees are hired.

In a recent installment of IBJ's "Leading Questions" video series, Turner discussed the risky process of taking HealthLease public, as well as some somewhat unorthodox elements of his management style.

  • here we go again
    hmm...that's about $20,000 per job....and that assumes they are real....another "rob from the poor, give to the rich plan"
  • Fiduciary Responsibility
    Apparently any utterance of the word "jobs" sparks a Pavlovian response from IEDC to open their wallet. Funny that the GOP has no problem with this any more, after years of grousing when a Dem was governor.

  2. We are a nation of speed. All of our younger lives are filled with deadlines, quotas and bottom lines. We start to ease out of the pressured rat-race when we finally see "retirement." The most enjoyable travel on the planet is passenger rail service. Indy to Chicago does not beat Megabus or Southwest Airlines in speed. Passenger rail however has the best seating, mammoth legroon, seat backs that recline to more than 45 degrees and employers that really want you to return as a customer. Indiana municipalities need to maintain subsidies to support this transportation mode. Losing it is loss for all of us.
