Water bottler buys Plainfield distribution building

Back to TopCommentsE-mailPrintBookmark and Share

A California water bottler has purchased a Plainfield distribution building for its first Midwestern outpost.

Niagara Bottling LLC bought the 441,000-square-foot building at 1250 Whitaker Road in Plainfield from Mesa, Ariz.-based Arcus Private Capital Solutions. Neither party disclosed a sale price for the building, which in 2007 sold for $14.7 million as a brand-new building.

Niagara is taking about half of the building. The other half is occupied by Brentwood, Tenn.-based supply-chain management firm OHL, which will lease the space from Niagara.

The company plans to invest about $35 million into the water treatment and bottling plant, its eighth across the country, and buy about 300,000 gallons of municipal water per day from the city of Plainfield. It will employ about 37 people.

Brokers from the local office of Colliers Turley Martin Tucker represented the seller, while the buyer was represented by Ontario, Calif.-based Lee & Associates and Carmel-based Stephen M. Becht Co.

    I attended a job fair for this facility about two years ago. According to news reports so did about 5,000 oher people. And they are just now purchasing a building? What the hell!?

  1. I am so impressed that the smoking ban FAILED in Kokomo! I might just move to your Awesome city!

  2. way to much breweries being built in indianapolis. its going to be saturated market, if not already. when is enough, enough??

  3. This house is a reminder of Hamilton County history. Its position near the interstate is significant to remember what Hamilton County was before the SUPERBROKERs, Navients, commercial parks, sprawling vinyl villages, and acres of concrete retail showed up. What's truly Wasteful is not reusing a structure that could still be useful. History isn't confined to parks and books.

  4. To compare Connor Prairie or the Zoo to a random old house is a big ridiculous. If it were any where near the level of significance there wouldn't be a major funding gap. Put a big billboard on I-69 funded by the tourism board for people to come visit this old house, and I doubt there would be any takers, since other than age there is no significance whatsoever. Clearly the tax payers of Fishers don't have a significant interest in this project, so PLEASE DON'T USE OUR VALUABLE MONEY. Government money is finite and needs to be utilized for the most efficient and productive purposes. This is far from that.

  5. I only tried it 2x and didn't think much of it both times. With the new apts plus a couple other of new developments on Guilford, I am surprised it didn't get more business. Plus you have a couple of subdivisions across the street from it. I hope Upland can keep it going. Good beer and food plus a neat environment and outdoor seating.
