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.”

The Depot: Full Steam Ahead

Forget Jessie’s girl. With Rick Springfield in concert at the Nickel Plate District amphitheater on Saturday, our own Chris Kirles got enough pics that made us wish we had Kirles’ camera.


Kirles, who is the President of Construction at Flaherty & Collins Properties, was/is the lead developer of The Depot at Nickel Plate in Fishers, Indiana. The 242-apartment home, mixed-use development is furthering the City of Fishers goal is creating a centralized and unique downtown experience for residents. Always a popular spot during the summer months, the Nickel Plate amphitheater has been bringing in great bands for years. Now, residents of The Depot will have a chance to enjoy these shows up close and personal.



But Kirles’ camera also caught the latest progress made to The Depot, as finishing touches are being put on the project. Check out the pool courtyard area in the shots below, both before sunset and with the night lights on. We bet this will make for some awesome resident relaxation very, very soon.


Landscaping is coming along nicely in these shots, and, as you can see, the pool area is coming along nicely. Just a few more steps and we’ll be stopping by for a swim! Of course, the firepit area in the lower right corner in the picture below looks like a nice place to hang out as well!
