While The Depot has been open for business for several months now, yesterday we celebrated the official grand-opening of the mixed-used development in the heart of the Nickel Plate District, Fishers downtown area.
The Depot is the result of public-private partnership between the City of Fishers and one of the Midwest’s largest developers, Flaherty & Collins Properties.
“When you invest like this in your urban core, it really has a ripple effect,” said Flaherty & Collins Properties CEO, Dave Flaherty. “Not only does it help the businesses in the immediate area, it helps create an identity for the city.”
Developments like The Depot are part of the Nickel Plate District Redevelopment effort focused on creating a sense of place in Fishers’ downtown area.
“Four years ago if you’d asked the majority of people where downtown Fishers is, you would have gotten a whole lot of different answers, because there really wasn’t a defined downtown in Fishers,” said OneZone Vice President, Dan Cannan. “That’s certainly not the case today, there certainly is a downtown.”
With the Depot’s retail offerings, currently Brixx Wood-Fired Pizza, Dottie Couture Botique and Yogurtz, live events at the Amphitheater and the new Central Green, there’s been an uptick in daily activity in the Nickel Plate District.
“Every day when I leave City Hall and I see the people walking around and I see the people eating at Brixx and I see this downtown come to life in Fishers, it’s truly a rewarding experience for me as we’ve seen this progress and transform into a vibrant downtown,” said Mayor Scott Fadness.
