We have been seeing changes all across the Indianapolis area in the last couple of years. Everything from incredible orangutan exhibit at the Indianapolis Zoo to the RebuildIndy initiative, our city has been getting a makeover and boy, is it looking good! Here at Charles C. Brandt, we, too, strive to help make Indy the best it can be in any way that we can.
One exciting way we are doing this is by helping to convert the Metropolis Lifestyle Center into The Shops at Perry Crossing.
Originally established in October of 2005, Metropolis has been a staple in the Plainfield area ever since. It was somewhere residents could appreciate different types of cuisines, a variety of shops, and plenty of movies for all ages to enjoy. Nearly ten years later, the lifestyle center is being fully renovated and the city has high hopes that it will be a beneficial tourist attraction.
Poag Shopping Centers, a development company based in Memphis that is often credited with the creation of the term “lifestyle center,” purchased the space in early 2014 and ground was broken for renovation on May 6 of this year. A lifestyle center essentially combines the basic functions of a retail shopping center with more leisurely activities of everyday life. It's a place where families, couples, and groups of all sorts can appreciate the relaxing atmosphere.
Poag also purchased seven acres of vacant land located south of the mall for potential expansion purposes.
This extensive project will be completed in November of this year, so make sure to keep an eye out for details on the grand reopening! This will be a great chance for everyone to come out and see the new space while celebrating the new and exciting opportunities it holds for the community.
We look forward to seeing you at The Shops at Perry Crossing in a few short months. Until then, continue enjoying the shops at Metropolis!
