Noblesville, Ind. — BlueSky Technology Partners, a leading eCommerce and digital marketing consultancy, announced today they are relocating their U.S. corporate headquarters to the newly formed Federal Hill District in downtown Noblesville, Indiana.
Federal Hill District is being developed as part of a project that will incorporate the west side to downtown Noblesville and provide a year-round community that mixes fun and business. The new area will feature the already approved Federal Hill Commons, which will provide walking trails, green space and an outdoor amphitheater among its notable attributes. The City of Noblesville Economic Development Department, the mayor and the Chamber of Commerce are all looking for the park's amenities to attract commercial development and businesses to the area.
“We're very excited about this location for our new U.S. headquarters,” Todd Irwin, BlueSky CEO, said. “Federal Hill Commons provides our company the green space and community aspects that we were seeking. Combine that with the walking access to downtown Noblesville and everything it has to offer, we feel the location is ideal.”
Groundbreaking is scheduled for the summer of 2015 and the project is slated for completion in the fall of 2016. BlueSky has committed to Indianapolis-based American Structurepoint and Fishers-based Meyer Najem for the design and construction of the estimated 40,000 square foot facility. In January, several BlueSky employees participated in a “visioning session” with American Structurepoint and Meyer Najem, which gave employees the opportunity to contribute ideas for the new office space.
“We are experiencing tremendous growth and have quickly outgrown our current space. Our plans for the new headquarters will accommodate our growth and provide our local employees, as well as our remote employees, with a modern workspace designed specifically for them. We believe the office and the area will foster collaboration and creativity across the entire organization, as well as assist us in our recruiting and relocation efforts to bring talent to the area,” Eric Warne, BlueSky COO, said.
BlueSky forecasts 70 to 75 of its North American workforce will move into the new facility when it opens. BlueSky's current U.S. headquarters is located in Stony Creek Industrial Park in Noblesville. BlueSky expanded into international territory with the 2014 opening of their Canadian headquarters in the Markham-Unionville area of Toronto.
“The City of Noblesville has been very supportive of BlueSky since we opened our doors here. In fact, they've demonstrated great vision that aligns to our aspirations as a company and we're proud to be part of the Noblesville community. As a company, we always strive to give back and be a partner to the community. We are hopeful our commitment to Noblesville and Federal Hill District will help spur economic development and bring similar types of companies to Noblesville,” Warne said.
“We are looking forward to the relocation and expansion of BlueSky. Having them downtown is just the beginning of Noblesville's attraction potential for Federal Hill Commons and BlueSky will be a catalyst to west side economic development,” said Noblesville Mayor John Ditslear. “There is substantial growth within the information technology industry and award-winning BlueSky Technology Partners is exactly the type of state-of-the-art company we want to see locate there.”
