Fishers, Ind. — The City of Fishers Redevelopment Commission (FRC) announced a call for applicants to submit a plan for acquisition and development of a parcel on Lantern Road in the Nickel Plate District. The parcel is currently owned by the City of Fishers and will be transferred to the FRC as part of the plan to continue the redevelopment of downtown Fishers.
“The RFP continues the next phase of redevelopment in the Nickel Plate District,” said Tom Dickey, Fishers' Director of Community Development. “The time is right for a shift in redevelopment efforts, and our strategy has set the stage for smaller-scale, private opportunities in the heart of Fishers.”
The .46 acre parcel is located at 11671 Lantern Road, and the FRC will consider any proposals that further the goals and policies of the redevelopment and economic development initiatives for the Nickel Plate District, including a mixed-use development with commercial and residential uses. Proposal responses should be submitted no later than noon (EST) on Friday, June 12, 2015.
City officials are requesting a construction schedule along with the proposal that includes a completion date by the spring of 2016. For more information or for a copy of the RFP, please visit www.fishers.in.us
