FISHERS, Ind. (WISH) – Watch for another development in downtown Fishers. The town council approved it at the Monday night council meeting.

A new office complex will replace what used to be a Kentucky Fried Chicken restaurant at 116th and Lantern Road.

Fishers says developers expect to spend $18 million on the new three-story project. They expect the new building to offer space for retail and medical uses.

The complex will also have a 330-space parking garage.

“This project meets vital parking needs of the Nickel Plate District, and creates more space to accommodate the demand for office and retail locations in the area,” Fishers Town Council President John Weingardt said in a press release.

The release also says the parking spaces “will be available to the public after 6 p.m. every evening and on Saturdays and Sundays.”

Fishers says construction should begin this summer. The work should be done by 2015. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
