Ready, Set, Let’s Roll!  

April, 2023

Despite the occasional cold spell, spring is here, it’s the start of Q2, and there is a mad dash to break ground on new projects or make serious headway on those under construction. Our Starbucks team alone has 4 ground-up locations underway and 3 more about to start- all in Indiana and Illinois!  As a result of continued growth, and some of our team’s recent retirements, Capitol is looking to add talent to both our project management and field teams in all of our offices.  If you know of anyone looking for a construction career with a proven team, please send them our way.

While it’s been a few years since we’ve attended, due to the pandemic and other events, we are excited to head back to Las Vegas next month for the world’s largest retail convention with the International Council of Shopping Centers.  It’s always interesting to learn about growing retail concepts, as well as meet with brokers and developers about upcoming projects. If you will be attending and would like to meet,  please contact Lauren Hughes.

Wishing you a happy start to spring!

MARQUETTE- Indianapolis, IN- 30,000 Sq. Ft.

Our Indy team has enjoyed an ongoing relationship with high-end senior living provider Marquette for nearly five years, performing on a variety of projects. We recently wrapped up a remodel that touched nearly 30,000 square feet of lobby, family rooms, common areas, restrooms, and dining. Indy-based DKGR was the design partner who helped elevate the look and feel of the always-full facility that remains one of the elite providers of care in the area. The guidance of JLL Indy’s PDS team is also a crucial part of this seamless process!

STARBUCKS- Cold Springs, KY- 2,250 Sq. Ft.

A new month and a new Starbucks is open! Although the cafe is in Cold Springs, KY, the 2,225 SF store on Alexandria Pike is actually in a suburb of Cincinnati. Our team completed the new interior buildout, complimented with design by GPD Group.  Our Starbucks team continues to stay busy with both ground-up, new interior builds, and remodels around the Midwest.

ESTRIDGE- Carmel, IN- 11,800 Sq. Ft.

Indy’s hometown builder, Estridge, recently relocated their home office to a newer Atapco Properties building in Carmel.  The team needed to increase their size as they continue to add communities around central Indiana, and they partnered with Schott Design to create a variety of spaces to accommodate their work. Our team has been fortunate to build out multiple spaces in this building and working for another contractor is always a privilege.

“BATMAN BUILDING” SPEC SUITES- Nashville, TN- 23,500 Sq. Ft.

While it took us some time to get our foot in the door, our Nashville team LOVES working in the iconic “Batman building” that stands out in the skyline, owned by MetLife Investment Management. We recently completed the buildout of a full 23,500 SF floor, converting the space into 6 spec suites, designed by ASD|Sky and managed by CBRE. The suites are now move-in ready for tenants seeking prestigious office space. We look forward to more projects in this building for years to come!

LOU MALNATI’S- Avon, IN- 1,815 Sq. Ft.

It’s almost Friday, which means pizza and relaxing! It has been a pleasure to bring Chicago’s best Lou Malnati’s Pizza to Avon, Indiana for delivery and carry out to the community in the Harvest Landing development. The store is now open and we have enjoyed building the brand’s locations around Indy, working with Chicago-based Studio 222 Architects.


New Client Alert! Growing physical therapy provider PT Solutions Physical Therapy is increasing it’s footprint within central Indiana. Our team wrapped up a new 2,800 SF clinic just south of the Westfield’s Grand Park Sports Campus. The team is gearing up with hiring and training, allowing them to open and offer services in time for the busy spring sports season. Atlanta-based Studio Plaid designed the clinic, and our team is working on two more in the Zionsville area.
