BROWNSBURG REDEVELOPMENT CONCEPTUAL DESIGN TEAM FORMED
Brownsburg, Indiana, April 4, 2014– InterDesign announced today their agreement to begin working together with Bolt Redevelopment to conceptualize plans for a new exciting commercial development project in Brownsburg. Bolt Redevelopment, specializing in community redevelopment strategies and growth, owns significant property on the east side of State Road 267 (Green Street) located between State Road 136 and 56th Street. Bolt Redevelopment’s property is located across the street from the former St. Malachy Parish, which was recently purchased by the Town of Brownsburg. The location is now the home of the Brownsburg Parks Department offices and is intended as the future location of a potential Community Recreation Center.
“We are planning to redevelop our Brownsburg property in a manner that will help create the kind of downtown that Brownsburg has always wanted. Our goal is to revitalize the area and give residents a reason to come downtown instead of driving through our downtown on their way elsewhere,” said Rick Bolt of Bolt Redevelopment. “The Town of Brownsburg has always needed additional amenities and this kind of downtown development maximizes assessed value. In our master plans, we look to see a mix of new retail, office space and leasable housing.”
Bolt, a longtime Brownsburg resident, has been working with the Town of Brownsburg to determine the type of facilities that can be created in the area per town zoning regulations in accordance with the vision of the Town’s Comprehensive Plan. With those criteria in hand, InterDesign’s architects will begin conceptual design work to determine what is feasible for the property financially and what will also benefit the community.
“Providing additional parking is a primary provision as well,” according to InterDesign Architect and Project Manager, Andy Costlow. “We also want to suggest connecting one side of the street (SR 267) with the other for pedestrians to promote interaction and improve public safety.”
Mr. Costlow is one of InterDesign’s lead designers and specializes in municipal and higher education design. Founded in 1975, InterDesign works in several markets and has designed facilities all over the state of Indiana and several surrounding states as well. Locally in Brownsburg, InterDesign created the master plan and new facility architectural design for Brownsburg’s Connection Pointe Christian Church. They are also currently the architects on the large new Trader’s Point Christian Church in Whitestown. InterDesign is well known for designing recreational facilities, higher education, K-12 and senior living facilities.
“InterDesign has been in business for 40 years in downtown Indianapolis. After meeting with InterDesign’s staff I realized that they are definitely the professionals who can see our vision through,” commented Rick Bolt. “They have designed millions of square feet of buildings and after seeing some of their plans for other clients, and the particulars of our project, I knew they would understand what we needed and what works for Brownsburg. This is really exciting.”
Bolt Development plans to share the conceptual development designs created by InterDesign with the residents of Brownsburg as soon as possible so that the community can know what is planned. Bolt also plans to work together with the Brownsburg Parks Department and Town officials to insure that the properties work well together for the benefit of the community and the future of Brownsburg.
