Taking Baby Steps

August, 2020

We are taking some baby steps.., would you agree? Some our teammates children have started back to school in person, office buildings are slowly seeing more occupants return to the office, and we might all just be getting used to the mask wearing, If it means we can experience some of the “normalcies” of life, albeit differently! Lease activity has been picking up again in recent weeks and although none of us have a magic ball to know how long the progress will continue, we’re enjoying it while it’s here.  Why not?!

While the 104th running of the Indy500 took place last weekend without fans in the stands, it was wonderful to see the spirit of the 500 still carrying on in unique ways around our home City!  Many enjoyed race weekend watching the “greatest spectacle” live, while enjoying camaraderie in small groups remotely. We are also enjoying supporting some of our amazing culinary clients during Devour Indy, which runs now through September 6th.  What a way to experience some fabulous restaurants with pre-set menus and great prices.  Check out our clients: Ruth’s Chris Circle Centre, Tony’s Steak and Seafood, HC Tavern & Kitchen, 1933 Lounge by St. Elmo and Late Harvest Kitchen!

While we have a few interior office projects finishing up this month, we have started some really unique projects of several varieties that we look forward to sharing with you in the coming months!  Additional photos of this month’s featured projects can be viewed on our facebook page. As always, if you’re interested in talking further about our work or a potential project, please contact Lauren Kriner.  Stay well!

FIRST MERCHANTS- Carmel, IN- 31,000 Sq. Ft.

The pandemic has allowed us some additional uninterrupted time to finish up open remodels! This one is a 31,000 square foot, full-floor remodel for the corporate office of First Merchants Bank in Three Meridian Plaza. Indianapolis-based Schott Design worked with the First Merchants facilities team to select brighter, modern finishes!  With all of the PPP lending, the banking industry has stayed very busy during this time.

HUMANA GUIDANCE CENTER, Greensboro, SC- 3,600 Sq. Ft.

Capitol completed a 3,600 square foot Guidance Center for Humana in Greensboro, NC. We continue to do projects around the country for Humana through Cushman & Wakefield’s Project Management team. Atlanta-based Interior Architects designed this bright Humana office!


Our Nashville team completed their second project at the prestigious Vanderbilt University in Nashville under the guidance of CBRE as the CM. The 8,700 square foot Data Science Center received an overall refresh, designed by ASD|Sky!

AAA, INDIANAPOLIS, In- 12,200 Sq. Ft.

Capitol has enjoyed building customer locations for AAA around our city in past years, so it was a treat to help AAA corporate relocate to the northside of Indianapolis recently. Their new space at 9200 Keystone at the Crossing has great views from 12,200 square feet on the fifth floor. Design kudos to their KATC neighbor, Parallel Design Group and construction management by the local Cush Wake team! Having moved in Monday, the AAA team is loving their more modern space!
