Wahlburgers, a burger restaurant founded by Executive Chef Paul Wahlberg and celebrity brothers Mark and Donnie Wahlberg and others, has announced it will build in Carmel, its first Indiana location. The restaurant has plans to open in 2020 at the Proscenium, a new mixed-use development currently under construction at the northwest quadrant of Range Line Road and Carmel Drive.
The Proscenium development includes a nearly two-acre green space, 196 residential units, 20,000 square feet of retail and 100,000 square feet of office space, as well as 26 condos. It is being built on a below-ground parking garage.
Proscenium project developer Tony Birkla said the commitment from Wahlburgers is confirmation of the development plan.
“We couldn’t be more excited by this collaboration and to be a part of bringing Wahlburgers to Indiana, specifically to the Proscenium in Carmel,” Birkla stated. “This is the type of anchor tenant a developer dreams of Wahlburgers will make the Proscenium an even more desirable location.”
According to a press release, Wahlburgers debuted in October 2011 in Hingham, Mass. It has 26 locations nationwide.
“Our ability to attract a marquee brand like Wahlburgers is another testament to our strategy of investing in Carmel’s quality of life and creating a unique central core that is vibrant, walkable and sustainable, giving us the opportunity to attract popular restaurants, as well as major corporate headquarters and small, high-tech businesses,” Carmel Mayor Jim Brainard stated. “Our investment into underperforming areas such as this former abandoned party store is what will continue to draw hundreds of millions of dollars in private investment, helping to build a city that we can embrace and enjoy today and one that will be prosperous in the future.”
