The RDC has assembled the following bullet points regarding Creekside Corporate Park at Zionsville. For more on the developments at Creekside Corporate Park, read Current in Zionsville next Tuesday.
Important facts about the Creekside Corporate Park at Zionsville property are as follows:
- Creekside Corporate Park at Zionsville is a “conservation” office park where corporate headquarters and office buildings will be built amongst beautiful ravines and woodlands. With 38% of property being preserved as woodlands, this office park is serious about creating a setting unlike any other in the Indianapolis region.
- The predominant portion of the land purchased by the RDC, now known as Creekside Corporate Park at Zionsville, includes 66 acres on the north side of 106th Street with 41 developable acres and 25 acres maintained as green space and passive recreation making this development very unique compared to other office parks.
- Creekside will be the first in the Indianapolis region to fully utilize Low Impact Development (LID) throughout, resulting in very little discharge of storm water off the property and into adjacent waterways. LID also focuses on cleansing water at the source by using rain gardens, native plants, and drainage swales to manage storm water without detention ponds. Aside from the environmental benefits of LID, it also allows users to maximize the use of their parcel which would traditionally have included a retention pond.
- Creekside is a short walk from the Village’s brick street featuring a variety of restaurants, diverse shopping, professional services, lifestyle and fitness facilities, and public spaces. Creekside is nearly adjacent to the new South Main Street development, home to the famous Bub’s Burgers and, where several additional new retail spaces, service providers, and eateries will be located.
- Creekside is a short drive from the Michigan Road commercial corridor and its interchange with I-465.
- The conceptual master plan calls for a new pedestrian bridge over Eagle Creek which will connect workers to the Village and be the tie between the trail systems on the north and south side of the creek.
- Creekside will include over one mile of trail within the natural areas that will tie into the Town’s Parks
- Department’s trails on the north side of Eagle Creek, allowing people to exercise or take a relaxing stroll through the woods.
- The conceptual master plan shows 14 parcels which represents the greatest number of sites being considered, but a great deal of flexibility has been designed into the park allowing 2 or more parcels to be merged into a larger site for another major office building.Creekside is planned and designed to accommodate users from 15,000 to 150,000 square feet.
- If each parcel is optimally developed, the Creekside could yield more than 540,000 square feet of office space and 15,000 square feet of restaurant or retail space.
- The development will be served by a tree-lined boulevard with pedestrian walkway along the full length of the street. The boulevard design will build on the natural character of the site and will be constructed using Low Impact Development techniques to manage storm water.
- The conceptual master plan (provided with this Release) applies to the RDC-owned property on the north side of 106th Street (any references on the conceptual master plan to property on the south side of 106th Street, or outside of Creekside’s boundaries, are for illustrative purposes only).
- A slightly different alternate conceptual master plan has also been prepared to communicate some of the development’s flexibility. That alternative conceptual master plan is available upon request.
- Creekside is a Town-supported effort to offer amenity-rich parcels with the opportunity for incentives for projects that support the master plan’s vision.
- The RDC believes Creekside Corporate Park at Zionsville will be the first choice for conscientious corporations that appreciate the natural setting and other corporations that desire amenity-rich surroundings.
