September News

Happy Fall, Y’all!

September, 2020

Who can, during this crazy year, believe that tomorrow brings October and that it’s officially fall?  The leaves are starting to change and the temps cooling off, yet at times we’ve felt it’s been the LONGEST.YEAR.EVER!

We have enjoyed participating in several golf outings and safe networking events this month that are starting to take place again!  We have also had a handful of projects break ground to get well underway before we experience freezing temps.

Capitol is also honored to be recognized by Midwest Real Estate News as a Top Construction Company in their “Best of the Best 2020” edition.  Our team has grown over the last 22 years by working hard and working together.

Some of our projects featured this month are in our home areas, while others are from our work on the road! 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.  Happy Fall, Y’all!

ABERCROMBIE KIDS- East Rutherford, NJ- 2,500 Sq. Ft.

To say working in one of the most high-profile U.S. malls, during a pandemic in one of the “hottest-COVID” states, was interesting would be an understatement! But our travelling team finished up our first project for the Abercrombie team at the American Dream Mall, just in time for the malls reopening on October 1st. Abercrombie Kids is just shy of 2,500 square feet and was designed by Columbus, OH-based Abbot Studios. It was a pleasure to work with the Midwest AF team and we look forward to more projects together as they grow!

LOU MALNATI’S PIZZERIA, Carmel, IN- 1,485 Sq. Ft.

Lou Malnati’s first location in the Indianapolis market is now complete and the team is underway with hiring and training to open in Carmel this October! The 1,485 SF space in the popular Bridges development at 116th and Illinois, will offer delivery and carry-out Chicago deep-dish pizza, and sits between Starbucks & Verizon. The market for great pizza is hotter than ever, and there is a lot of excitement surrounding Lou Malnati’s entrance into Indy! Chicago-based Barker/Nestor designed the new Lou’s! Stay tuned for their next location…

STARBUCKS, Brooklyn, OH- 3,800 Sq. Ft.

While we are sad to see many of the Steak N’ Shake restaurants close and sell, what a great conversion project we had in Brooklyn, OH. Starbucks took the old 3,800 building and capitalized on a larger footprint and great real estate! Columbus, OH-based GDP Group redesigned the space and our travelling team took care of the revisions!

STARBUCKS- Kansas City, MO- 2,100 Sq. Ft

Coming off Nation Coffee Day and during pumpkin spice latte season, we continue to be grateful for our long-time client, Starbucks!  Seems as though a favorite cup of joe is something people ARE NOT willing to live without during this pandemic.  Starbucks continues to add new locations around the country, and our team just completed a 2,100 SF cafe in KC, MO, now serving guests as the temps cool down. We are loving the cool blue accents, by OH-based Design Forum!

FIVE STAR NUTRITION, Lafayette, IN- 1,600 Sq. Ft.

We think most would agree, our health is now more important than ever! It was a pleasure to renovate an old space to allow for 5 Star Nutrition to open in Lafayette, IN, just off Creasy Lane, in the heart of Purdue country.  The store offers supplements, vitamins and weight loss products, along with clothing and accessories.

HIGHWOODS SPEC SUITE, Brentwood, TN- 3,200 Sq. Ft.

What a good looking suite, ready for new tenants, at Highwoods Properties Ramparts office building in Brentwood, TN. Our Nashville team completed the 3,200 spec space with the help of ASD | SKY Design. Although not all offices are occupied at this time, we are still seeing landlords in our markets completing spec spaces ready for quick, easy move-ins!
