At the April 11 Fishers Plan Commission meeting, the Faegre Baker Daniels law firm presented on behalf of Vive Exterior Design to ask for a rezone for a 4-acre property at 11070 E. 126th St., just west of I-69.
The proposal was to rezone the lot from residential to commercial. The rezone would allow Vive Exterior Design to construct an outdoor/exterior design firm on the lot. The proposal also includes plans for a utility facility on the eastern portion of the site.
The firm is at 12595 Cumberland Rd. in Fishers. Steve Hardin of Faegre Baker Daniels said the firm is excited to expand and grow locally by moving its headquarters to the new location if approved by city council.
“They are looking to move business operations to this site,” Hardin said during his presentation to the APC. “Essentially, (the development) will look like a nursery, but there will be no on-site sales at this location. It will be all design and consulting and storage of materials on-site.”
An office and a warehouse would be constructed on the center of the lot, and a utility facility would be built on the eastern portion, which would include 11-foot tall shelters for cable services but no cell towers. Landscaping would be provided by the petitioner to screen and buffer the site.
A public hearing was held for the proposal but nobody spoke. The APC forwarded the proposal onto the city council with no complaints, 8-0. The proposal was presented to the city council for its first and second reading at its April 16 meeting. Construction is planned to begin this spring with a tentative move-in date of spring 2019.
