At the Feb. 19 meeting of the Zionsville Plan Commission, the group approved plans for Hat World, LLC to be move forward with the building of a 150,000 square–foot facility at Creekside Corporate Park. Hat World is expected to spend more than $21 million in the construction of a new corporate center.
Representatives for Hat World stated that the overall design for the site will feature modern design initiatives.
Plan Commission President Allan Rachles said that this is the second large project the commission has approved within the last year, the first being the construction of FedEx.
“In both cases there have been very pleasant negotiations between the town council, the petitioner and the plan commission,” Rachles said. “I am very proud of what’s been accomplished.”
The commission also approved the addition of new member Josh Fedor, who replaced Wayne Haynes.
Fedor is a 1994 Zionsville Community High School graduate. He then graduated in 1998 from Southern Illinois University with a degree in Agricultural Business and Economics.
He has worked at his family’s business, Fedor Feed and Grain, in Whitestown for the past 10 years.
