Flaherty & Collins Properties Corporate Headquarters was named “Best in Show” for 2017 by Spaces Indiana. F&C moved into their new corporate headquarters, located on the 30th floor of the Regions Tower in Downtown Indianapolis in late December 2016.
“It was important for us to be in the heart of a thriving, bustling area,” said Jerry Collins, President of Flaherty & Collins Properties. “We started out here in 1993 and with all the projects we’ve down in major urban areas, this just makes sense and works with what we do. We talk a lot about urban, walkable areas with shopping and dining options, and as we continue to attract more employees to our corporate headquarters, we wanted our company to reflect what we’ve been doing with our projects.”
The space is modern and contemporary, meant to encourage interaction, and intermixed with treadmill desks, a Golden Tee golf arcade game and a pool table to help employees blow off steam don’t hurt the cause. The space is also a tech upgrade, with interactive screens and spaces and multiple conference rooms with a variety of uses.
“Office space is not about the space and how people use it, it is about how can a space support a company’s culture and the people that bring it to life,” says Keith Cole, principal with Mitsch Design. Cole sees Flaherty & Collins Properties as ahead of the curve with its buildout, a reflection of the company’s culture and what modern employees are looking for.
“Over the coming years, the most significant change in office space and office buildings will be making the office a more comfortable work environment,” says Cole, who has worked with Flaherty & Collins Properties on building out amenity space for many of its recent developments, including The Depot at Nickel Plate in Fishers and 360 Market Square in downtown Indianapolis. “Let’s face it, we all spend more and more time at the office and less at home. For companies with great cultures, people love to connect with their “family” in the work place. To achieve this, you will see more residential and amenity settings.”
“We are excited to move our corporate office to Downtown Indianapolis,” said David Flaherty, CEO of Flaherty & Collins Properties, last summer. “Our new space reflects our growth as a company and puts us in the heart of a thriving urban area, where we specialize in many public/private, mixed-use projects both in Central Indiana and around the country. Perhaps most importantly, it allows us the ability to recruit the best and brightest from our industry by offering a tremendous employee environment that is walkable, bike-friendly, and truly, a live, work, play location.”
