Season’s Greetings & Happy New Year! 

December, 2023

We are here…  It’s somehow the week of Christmas and the nearly year end.  Our 25th year has been full of special memories, several holiday celebrations, and reflections on the wins this year and ways to improve in 2024.  Above all, we are grateful for our tenured team, as well as new members, new clients and those we continue to have.

Our year-end has been busy, and we have been fortunate that milder weather has allowed us to finish up a variety of projects around the Midwest and country.   Wishing you the happiest of holidays and a new year full of all that is good!

CHATHAM COMMONS- Westfield, IN- 5,500 Sq. Ft.

Working with developers has been a strength of Capitol’s since we opened our doors. Included in that longtime client mix is Midwest-based developer Midland Atlantic, for whom we built the new 5,500 square foot Chatham Commons retail center.  It’s location, a stone’s throw from one of Westfield’s main attractions, the Grand Park Sports Campus, has been much anticipated…bringing a new Starbucks to the busy area that opened this week.  There is still 3,300 square feet available for co-tenancy next to the frequented cafe in the beautiful building designed by Texas’ Thomas Pirtle.

STARBUCKS- Westfield, IN- 2,200 Sq. Ft.

It’s only appropriate to wrap up the year with ONE more Starbucks opening.  One of our longtime and loyal clients, the coffee behemoth opened their third full cafe with drive-thru in Westfield this week in the aforementioned Chatham Commons development.  The Grand Park and nearby residential crowd is raving about the new store, designed by WD Partners. Our team has eight other Starbucks locations under construction around the Midwest, with no signs of slowing down in 2024!

VUORI- Chicago, IL- 3,600 Sq. Ft.

Capitol’s Chicago team is proud to have completed the second store in the City for growing activewear brand Vuori in the Lakeview neighborhood along the popular Southport corridor. The 3,600 square foot store, designed by New York’s Heitler Houstoun Architects, opened with a flurry of guests excited to purchase the formerly online brand in a bricks-and-mortar setting.

KIDDIE ACADEMY- Spring Hill, TN- 9,900 Sq. Ft.

Another quality childcare provider, Kiddie Academy, will open just after the new year in the Nashville suburb of Spring Hill, TN. It was a pleasure to work again with Primax Properties on this 9,900 square foot building and associated site work. Charlotte-based Ragona Architecture & Design created the plans for the growing franchise, expanding around the country.

THE TAP- Indianapolis, IN- 1,900 Sq. Ft.

Travelling south for the winter to escape the gray, cold days that Midwest winters can bring? Make sure to stop by The Tap that opened just in time for holiday travel on Concourse B of Indianapolis International Airport. The nearly 1,900 square foot “kiosk”, designed by Chicago-based Silhouette Design Architecture, was constructed this fall while the airport operated, involving high-clearance security, care for surrounding travelers, and frequent night work.

COLDSTONE CREAMERY- Noblesville, IN- 1,600 Sq. Ft.

So fresh and so clean! After a brief two-week closing, the Coldstone Creamery at Hamilton Town Center reopened this month, refreshed for the holidays and new year!
