February News

Every Winter has its Spring!

February, 2021

After what was a brutal February in the Midwest and for many part of the country, this week of warmer temps and sunshine brings the anticipation that “Every Winter has its Spring!”  While March could bring with it a roller coaster of weather, the days are getting longer and it is exciting to start executing on plans we’ve been making all winter.

While the office market is slowly starting to come off the “pause” button, retailers and even restauranteurs are making plans to resume a more normal pace of activity. The health and wellness sectors also continue to make strategic moves!  Below are a variety of unique projects we wrapped up this month, and more photos 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!

Cheers to the hope of spring around the corner!

THE BEAUTY INSTITUTE- Whiteshall, PA-11,000 Sq. Ft.

One thing we learned during this pandemic… most people do not want to forgo their routine hair colors, cuts, and aesthetic treatments!! Cue The Beauty Institute’s fifth location opening soon at Simon’s Lehigh Valley Mall in Whiteshall, PA. The 11,000 square foot school will soon be full of students honing their skills through nationally accredited programs in cosmetology, aesthetics, barbering and nail courses. The sleek facility makes for a great re-use of former retail space, in a growing field with a strong need for expertise.  California-based Rengel + Co. Architects designed the dynamic new space for the tenant.

MAPLE STREET BISCUIT COMPANY- Murfreesboro, TN- 3,050 Sq. Ft.

Not just weekends are for brunching! Our new friends at Maple Street Biscuit Company opened this month at their newest location in Murfreesboro, TN. We can smell the scratch kitchen cooking up the best brunch in town. Congrats to our Nashville team for completing this beautiful 3,000 SF restaurant for the growing chain, designed by OH-based Macrae Architecture.

STARBUCKS- Indianapolis, IN- 2,700 Sq. Ft.

We love a great reuse project!  Our team converted the former Boston Market at Indy’s Old Town Shoppes to a Starbucks that opened on a snowy Indy holiday morning at 86th & Ditch Road. The 2,700 SF cafe has a drive-thru, which was cause for the chain’s relocation from across the street. The cafe has ample seating, which will be a bonus once the interior reopens for guests! OH-based ChangeUp was on point for architecture.

IVX HEALTH- Indianapolis, IN- 2,000 Sq. Ft.

Indy’s first IVX Health opened this month at Landmark Properties’ Park Meridian! The out- patient infusion center is nearly 2,000 square feet and offers private suites with flat screens for patients to experience treatments on their schedules, in an amazing environment, without waiting. AL-based Hendon + Huckestein Architects designed the space for the growing brand. It was a pleasure to work with the TN-based IVX team on their new clinic.

VALVOLINE- South Bend, IN- 2,000 Sq. Ft.

Capitol’s Chicago office recently completed a Valvoline Instant Oil Change ground-up project in South Bend, IN. The 3,000 sq. ft. space was designed by Robert Juris & Associates, Architects, of Mokena, IL and includes service bays, a lube pit, offices, and a waiting area. This was the team’s second completed building for the growing auto-service brand.

STRETCHLAB- Indianapolis, IN- 2,000 Sq. Ft

We are excited to announce the soft opening of Indy’s newest wellness brand, StretchLab at Ironworks, offering customized assisted-stretch sessions with trained flexologists! StretchLab’s new studio is just over 2,000 SF, next to Ruth’s Chris, and was designed by Indy’s Curran Architecture. Health and wellness are more important than ever, and StretchLab is offering free 15-minute trial stretch sessions you can schedule TODAY!  StretchLab is part of the Xponential Fitness umbrella of brands, which includes our other clients, Pure Barre and Yoga Six.

BIGGBY COFFEE- Pendleton, IN- 1,300 Sq. Ft

We love small-town coffee shops! Proud to bring the second Biggby Coffee location to central Indiana on a 1,300 square foot endcap with a drive-thru in Pendleton, IN! The coffee, tea, and smoothie shop is now open and serving patrons in-cafe as well as on the run. Welcome to town!  OH-based Drawing Department designed the new cafe.


Our Nashville team continues to stay busy completing office remodels within their market, recently finishing up a 4,200 SF space for Journal Communications in Franklin, TN. The media company’s new office project was managed by the local CBRE CM team and designed by ASD|Sky.
