Fishers-based construction firm Meyer Najem has announced that their plans to relocate their headquarters from 131st Street and State Road 37 to their future location on Maple Street in downtown Fishers.
The firm also plans to add 18 additional employees by 2015. Najem will construct a 40,000 sq. ft., $5.5 million building.
“Meyer Najem is one of the Midwest’s leading construction firms,” said Fishers Town Council President John Weingardt. “Their expansion in downtown Fishers and construction of a new building shows not only a strong commitment to our community, but a desire to be part of Fishers’ downtown revitalization.”
The two-story building with a rooftop terrace will be home to Meyer Najem on the first floor and will allocate 17,500 sq. ft. of office space on the second floor for high growth, high potential companies, such as Launch Fishers graduates.
“Meyer Najem is very pleased to continue our growth as a member of the Fishers’ business community. We have seen and experienced the benefit of the business friendly environment here, which has been important to the success of our firm over the last 15 years,” said Tim Russell, president of Meyer Najem. “Our new headquarters’ location in the downtown Nickel Plate District will provide an expanded work environment for our loyal workforce, while providing for our firm’s future growth. We highly value our partnership with the Town of Fishers, and look forward to a successful transition into our new facility by the end of 2014.”
In addition to the new building in downtown Fishers, the project will include a surface parking lot to be used during non-business hours and weekends for event parking. There will be approximately 150 parking spaces during the day, and about 115 spaces after business hours. The construction of the parking lot will break ground next spring with a completion date next summer.
Meyer will invest $5.5 million for construction of the building, parking lot and street improvements to Maple Street.
