The Depot Officially Opens

Ribbon CuttingWhile The Depot at Nickel Plate in Fishers, Indiana has been leasing for some time (it’s currently at 72 percent leased in less than 9 months!), at Flaherty & Collins Properties, we have a tendency to make things official with a little style and panache, some treats and a few remarks from the projects main proponents. So it goes without saying we were pretty stoked to hold our Grand Opening ceremony for The Depot on Thursday, July 23.

Our awesome F&C team worked incredibly hard to make sure the building shined – and it certainly did. The Depot is one of the finest mixed-use apartment communities in the entire Midwest, with amenities that could rival those found in larger cities and towers.

As our own CEO, David Flaherty said, we’re extremely proud that through the combined efforts of the City of Fishers and Flaherty & Collins Properties, The Depot will bring in roughly $100 million to the City over the next 20 years. It’s the kind of environment that Fishers envisioned when the concept of this project began in 2012.

“About three years ago, we drove around downtown Fishers, dreaming about what could be possible,” said Mayor Scott Fadness. “We are truly great partners in this project. When I see this downtown come to life like this, to see it transform into a vibrant downtown, it’s truly great.”

Flaherty & Collins Properties CEO, David Flaherty, agreed.

“Developments like this don’t happen without great Cities and Towns,” Flaherty said. “And Fishers is one of the best we’ve ever worked with.”

Brixx Opens at The Depot in Fishers

It’s been quite the week of activity here at Flaherty & Collins Properties. Last week, we broke ground on 360 Market Square in downtown Indianapolis and today, our anchor tenant at The Depot at Nickel Plate – Brixx Wood-Fired Pizza – opened it’s doors to hungry customers for the first time.


Brixx offers wood-fired pizzas cooked in brick ovens, salads, pastas and sandwiches built on house made focaccia bread. With a wide-range of toppings, Brixx also has vegan and vegetarian options, as well as whole wheat crust and gluten-free menu items. Additionally, Brixx offers 24 local and national craft beers on tap and 14 wines by the glass — providing a fresh alternative to the traditional pizza and beer.


Our team went in and enjoyed a fabulous lunch, with friendly staff and a relaxing atmosphere. We enjoyed the ambiance of the restaurant and the theme was well done!


Brixx opened in 1998 in the historic Dilworth neighborhood of Charlotte, North Carolina and has grown to 25 locations across the Southeast. The Depot at Nickel Plate will be the first location in the Midwest for Brixx.
