On Tuesday, July 16th, a groundbreaking ceremony was held to kick-off construction on the exciting and innovative new Hub & Spoke. Located in the heart of Fishers, adjacent to the Nickel Plate Trail, this project is a unique 94,000 square-foot, master-planned, mixed-use development and partnership with the City of Fishers and Hamilton Southeastern Schools.
At the groundbreaking, David Decker, co-founder of Hub & Spoke, said, “This started as a crazy little dream many years ago. The Hub & Spoke ecosystem consists of a design center, a community connect event and coworking space, and a state-of-the-art makerspace – the Hub & Spoke Institute (HSI).”
The design center is the project’s anchor, consisting of retail showrooms, where homeowners and trade professionals will be able to shop for the best products in home improvement. The coworking space will create a magnetic atmosphere of coworking, retail showrooms, and makers leading the way to innovation by leveraging collaboration.
The HSI will include a community workshop, innovation lab and art studio, providing S.T.E.A.M.-based, hands-on, experiential learning to develop a skilled workforce.
Decker shared opening remarks at the groundbreaking with the City of Fishers Mayor Scott Fadness and Hamilton Southeastern Schools (HSE) Superintendent Dr. Allen Bourff. Also speaking at the event were Hub & Spoke co-founder Travis Tucker, and Tim Russell, president of Meyer Najem.
After the groundbreaking, Decker said bringing “the Hub & Spoke dream to life takes the passion, support, and participation of a community of incredible people. From the city of Fishers and HSE officials, to industry partners, family, and friends, that community came together to celebrate the groundbreaking of this one-of-a-kind project.” For more information, visit hubandspoke.works.
