The Town of Fishers Redevelopment Commission announced a call for applicants to submit a plan for acquisition and development of a parcel on Maple Street in the Nickel Plate District. The parcel is currently owned by the FRC and part of the plan to continue redevelopment of downtown Fishers.
“The RFP parcel, while small, represents a big step in the next phase of redevelopment in the Nickel Plate District,” said Tom Dickey, Fishers director of community development. “An important part of our strategy has been to set the stage for smaller-scale redevelopment opportunities like this. We look forward to seeing the Maple Street area transform over time with better access to existing businesses and new development occurring there.”
The FRC currently owns the quarter-acre parcel at 11634 Maple St. with an existing structure that must be demolished. The FRC will consider any mix of uses that furthers the goals and policies of the redevelopment and economic development initiatives, including mixed-use development containing commercial and residential uses. Proposal responses should be submitted no later than noon Nov. 14.
Town officials are requesting a construction schedule along with the proposal that includes a completion date by the end of 2015. For more information or for a copy of the RFP, visit www.fishers.in.us.
