According to town officials, with the recent groundbreaking on the Lids headquarters to Creekside Corporate Park, the need to spread word about other available properties at the corporate park was essential. The website, named simply after the park, is currently up and running with information to attract new businesses.
For real estate broker and developer Paul Kite, the decision to create a website for Creekside was obvious. Kite has worked closely with the Zionsville Economic Development Committee to make this happen.
“Any business park is going to have a website where you can download information for the park, download the site plan, and [view]what the amenities are,” he said. “It’s just the nature of marketing is that you have to have some sort of web presence. You have to be constantly updated with technology, it doesn’t matter what business you’re in.”
Zionsville is updating its www.focusonzionsville.com website, which was the first online resource for information on the town and even has information on Creekside. But Kite said he believes Creekside deserved a more detailed webpage that could be accessed quickly and easily, especially for those in the real estate trade.
“People want very quick information,” he said. “If you’re in this business and you’re a marketer or a broker and you have a client, you don’t want to be spending hours trying to get information you want it in minutes. In a few minutes you can have the whole site plan downloaded. You can call me, you can call Wayne (DeLong, the town’s director of planning and economic development), and say, hey you need to be on the lot.”
Aside from the downloadable development plan, facts and news on Creekside, Kite wanted to make an effort in the website to convey Creekside’s dedication to the surrounding environment.
“We wanted to communicate that we are conscientious about our environmental impact, how we’re managing storm water, how were maintaining natural preserves and making it an asset so that people can walk in these woods,” Kite said. “That’s the message we want them to come away with what this website is that there’s a lot of green space.”
The website will continue to be updated as new developments are made. Visit www.creeksidecorporatepark.com for more information.
