Maintenance Mania 2014

Another Indiana Apartment Association Maintenance Mania is in the books!

This year was the 8th annual Maintenance Mania event, where attendees compete in seven skill-based events and a race car competition where the participants make pinewood derby cars out of maintenance materials. These table games are built around common maintenance activities. Some of the time events are standard for MM programs: Water Heater Installation, Faucet Installation, Flush Toilet Conversion, Icemaker Installation and a Deadbolt Test. For more information, check out

In addition, Maintenance Mania includes a series of seminars to promote different topics of interest in the field.

During the competition, Flaherty & Collins brought 41 of our maintenance staff to compete in the timed events – the largest (and loudest!) group at the event.


As always, racing the cars was one of the highlights of the day.




This year, we brought home two trophies. Paul Palacios, an accountant out of our corporate office, took home second place in the Frigidaire Icemaker Installation event. Thanks to our cheerleaders, we also brought home a spirit award! MM4 MM6

Luck of the Irish for Axis



The Flaherty & Collins team represented our newest development, Axis, at the St. Patrick’s Day Parade in downtown Indianapolis on Monday. Braving the cold, the F&C team passed out the ever-popular foldable frisbee (branded with Axis, of course) and candy (again, branded with Axis).



Our friends and Axis partners, Marsh, were on hand as well to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day.


As you can clearly tell, the F&C team had a blast. If you were able to join us at the parade, thanks for coming out! And be sure to stop by our temporary leasing office at Axis, which opens to the public next week. Call 317.634.6500 for more details, or visit




All Access: Axis

AXIS render

Despite some fairly harsh and, shall we say, in-climate weather, Flaherty & Collins is forging through the frozen days of winter to complete perhaps our coolest development to date: Axis.

Located in the heart of downtown Indianapolis, just a few blocks north of the hub of Indiana government, business, dining and entertainment, Axis will serve as a connection to the city’s vibrant core and near Northwest side.

Marsh will serve as the retail anchor of Axis, with a layout and design befitting the area and the development. With 42,000 square feet, both residents of Axis and citizens will enjoy a unique shopping experience.






Speaking of residents, those who select Axis as their home will find an unrivaled amenity package, coupled with an apartment living experience unmatched in Indianapolis. With its location, Axis is just minutes away from everything in downtown Indy.

The property, scheduled to open late Spring 2014, features an array of luxurious options, with more than 25,000 sq. ft. of exterior amenity space and an additional 12,000 square feet of interior amenity space. These areas feature a resort-style pool with sundeck, a fireside billiards lounge, an outdoor zen garden with fire pit, 24-hour fitness club and indoor/outdoor yoga and Pilates studios, bike parking and storage, outdoor grilling and serving areas, indoor kitchen and serving areas, concierge services and a sixth floor Skydeck with gorgeous views of downtown Indianapolis.

Units feature granite kitchen counter tops, stainless steel appliances, cultured marble vanity tops in the bathrooms, walk-in closets, wood style flooring and roman soaking tubs.
