Fishers Mayor Scott Fadness says a planned $40 million food and entertainment district will provide a sense of identity for one of the state’s fastest-growing communities. But Fadness says The Yard, which could include up to 14 restaurants, a hotel and culinary accelerator, is about more than image. It’s already serving as a business attraction tool. "I think without that a lot of these corporate folks may not decide to make Fishers their home," said Fadness, in an interview on Inside INdiana Business Television.
Fadness says there will be nearly 7,000 workers daily at companies in close proximity to the development, near 116th Street and I-69.
Plans for food and entertainment development were originally unveiled in December, with construction slated to begin in the spring of 2018.
Fadness says to expect restaurant announcements for The Yard in the next thirty to sixty days, adding they will be the kinds of culinary experiences Fishers residents have been demanding. "It’s non-chain, it’s quality, it’s unique and it’s home to Indiana," said Fadness. "You’re going to see a lot of very popular announcements."
