One Team, One Dream


On Wednesday, Over 250 of Flaherty & Collins Properties 450-plus employees descended upon the JW Marriott in Downtown Indianapolis for our 2016 Company Wide Event.

The theme – One Team, One Dream – could not have been more appropriate.

At F&C, we are everywhere, as our Development, Construction and Management teams not only work on building affordable and market rate multifamily housing across the country, but also work on building strong communities where we live, work and play.

This week was a chance for us to invest in building ourselves and uniting our team to celebrate, well, us. Our hard work and efforts, our accomplishments, and to come together under not just a slogan or mantra, but a goal.

After a wonderful introduction to the day by our President, Jerry Collins, we kicked off our day-long, jam packed event with an amazing session of self-reflection and motivation from our guest speaker, Anne Grady. Anne shared several powerful messages with our team and we learned a great deal about not only ourselves, but interacting with others.


After lunch and our lunchtime awards program – where we recognized winners in several construction and property management categories – we did a group event for charity, building 40 bikes that were donated later in the day to Boys & Girls Club organizations in Indianapolis and Noblesville, as well as Pathway on the Far East side of Indianapolis.



Next up, our teams went on a Scavenger Hunt around White River State Park in Downtown Indianapolis. Our teams worked together to accomplish finding specific items or points of interest in the guide book, and winners received an Olympic style medal – and perhaps most important – a paid vacation day!



From there, we broke for a few hours to allow everyone to get dressed to the nines for our capstone event – our dinner and awards program, followed by casino night and dancing in the Grand Ballroom.

Awards were presented to the following:


Safety Award – honoring employees who continually have safety on the mind, following guidelines and SOPs and look for ways to expand their knowledge and bring safety to the workplace.

  • Dustin Stevens

  • Brian Moore

Employee of the Year  – presented by Jerry Collins and David Flaherty, the award recognizes the best attributes of all our winners and goes above and beyond at all times to exceed all expectations. Our MVP!

With that, we danced the night away and played games to close out our celebration.

A 360 on 360 Market Square

#FlyFriday folks! Check out these amazing aerials from 360 Market Square, under construction now in downtown Indianapolis (with special thanks to FC2):








Located in the heart of Downtown Indianapolis, 360 Market Square is a 27-story mixed-use residential luxury apartment tower that will feature 292 luxury apartment one, two and three-bedroom apartment residences. The development, at nearly 300 feet tall, will feature a 42,000 square foot Whole Foods Market®.

Apartments will feature floor-to-ceiling glass, solar shades, quartz countertops in kitchens and baths, gourmet kitchens with energy efficient appliances that include side-by-side refrigerators and recessed balconies. Select units will include private terraces.

The apartments will feature floor to ceiling glass, balconies, wood flooring, stainless steel appliances and granite counter tops. Residential amenities will include a resort style pool and 5th floor amenity deck, state of the art fitness and other amenity spaces, not to mention these breathtaking views of Downtown Indy.



Whole Foods Market to anchor Market Square Mixed-Use Development

Market SquareFlaherty & Collins Properties announced Tuesday that a 40,000 square foot Whole Foods Market will anchor the forthcoming Market Square Mixed-Use Development.

“This will be one of the finest mixed-use towers in the Midwest, if not the country,” says David Flaherty, CEO of Flaherty & Collins Properties. “With the tremendous value Whole Foods Market will add to future residents and to downtown, this is truly a great win for the city of Indianapolis.”

Flaherty & Collins was selected by the City of Indianapolis to redevelop the north parcel of the former Market Square Arena site last July. The 28-story residential luxury apartment tower will feature 300 luxury apartment units, ranging from studios to two-bedrooms. In addition to Whole Foods Market, the project will have 2,500 square feet of retail space and a 525-space parking garage. The apartments will feature floor to ceiling glass, balconies, wood flooring, stainless steel appliances and granite counter tops. Residential amenities will include a resort style pool and deck, state of the art fitness and amenity spaces.

“Great, convenient shopping is a must-have for thousands of people moving to downtown Indy,” said Mayor Greg Ballard. “The addition of Whole Foods Market to the MSA residential tower project provides another great shopping destination for people living and working downtown, and is another reason why so many people are choosing to Live Indy.”

Whole Foods, which will be located on the southwest corner of the site, has stores in mixed-use developments in larger cities throughout the nation, including Boston, Chicago, Washington DC and New York City. Now, Indianapolis can be added to that list. Whole Foods Market stories feature fresh selections of natural foods, free of artificial flavors, sweeteners and preservatives. Stores offer shoppers high quality, fresh foods in an inviting setting. Each store is unique and designed to meet the needs of the neighborhoods they serve.

This new location will offer downtown residents and workers alike, fresh, organic fruits and vegetables, specialty items, high-quality meats and poultry, everyday pantry staples and sustainable seafood –appealing to the health conscious as well as devoted food enthusiasts. From the scratch bakery, shoppers will have a vast array of delicious breads and pastries, made fresh daily, to choose from.  The coffee bar will give the needed java jolt for busy shoppers. For kids of all ages, the gelato station will have the creamy, Italian treat by the scoop or by the pint. Downtown residents and workers will delight in the extensive prepared food options for lunch as well as the quick-and-savory meals for dinner.

In March, the Indianapolis City-County Council voted to move forward with the $81 million project that will change the skyline of the city. Jim Crossin, Vice President of Development at Flaherty & Collins, said that construction will begin this fall and will take just over two years to complete.

“We are looking forward to starting the project,” said Crossin. “We believe it will take downtown living to a new level, which is befitting the growth, activity and enthusiasm happening around the city of Indianapolis. What a great time it is to be in and around downtown.”

“With this new centrally located store in Indiana’s capital, Whole Foods Market will increase access to healthy and organic options to downtown residents and workers,” says Michael Bashaw, Whole Foods Market Midwest Regional President. “Located just down the street of the historic Soldiers’ and Sailors’ Monument, this new store will allow us to share our passion for food with the vibrant community in and around the Market East district.”

Flaherty & Collins Properties are completing three new mixed-use developments in 2014. Axis, located in downtown Indianapolis, will open this summer and features over 300 luxury apartments and more than 25,000 square feet of exterior amenity space. The Heights Linden Square in Gladstone, Missouri, just outside of Kansas City, will open later this summer, while The Depot at Nickel Plate in Fishers, Indiana will be completed this fall.
