Exciting Progress at the Yard at Fishers
We received the following update from the developer of our investment in the Yard at Fishers:
Exciting progress continues at The Yard at Fishers District! Sun King, the Fishers’ Culinary Incubator, 1933 by St. Elmo, Havana Cigar Bar, HC Grill and the free-standing retail shops located in the center of the site will be opening this Fall!
We successfully closed on the sale of the hotel parcel (4.17 acres) and the Hughes Parcel (0.65 acres) in 2018, and construction on the dual concept Hyatt Place and Hyatt House continues, with a projected opening this Fall.
We are excited to announce our newest executed lease with Rize, a favorite Indy brunch spot by Cunningham Restaurant Group. Rize offers a selection of sustainably founded dine-in, breakfast and lunch options daily, along with impressive catering packages. We are thrilled this brunch restaurant will occupy a premier location in the project and offer another important restaurant category to the tenant mix.
