Phase 1 of Bottleworks District, a new mixed-use development in Indianapolis for which Ring & DuChateau provided engineering design and services, is officially open. Ring & DuChateau’s Bottleworks team, led by Associate/Project Manager Jason LaRosh, has been working on the project for nearly four years from design through closeout.
Bottleworks, so named because part of the 12-acre development is a former Coca-Cola bottling plant and offices, is owned by Hendricks Commercial Properties. The first phase of the project includes office, retail, entertainment and parking, as well as The Garage, the first food hall and marketplace of its kind in Indianapolis. The 40,000 sf food hall features 14 full-service kitchens and eight additional retail/bar spaces.
“Our team did an exceptional job of managing a fluctuating schedule and changing tenant needs,” LaRosh said about The Garage. The team – including mechanical, electrical, technology, lighting and plumbing/fire protection engineers and designers – continues work on Bottleworks Phase 2, for which groundbreaking is expected in late 2021 or early 2022.
