Duke Realty Corporation will relocate its corporate headquarters into a custom-designed, four-story, 78,000-square-foot office building in the Keystone at the Crossing submarket in Indianapolis.
The Indianapolis-based company, which was founded in 1972 and today owns and operates more than 149 million square feet of logistics properties throughout the country, will move into its new facility in late 2019. The building, which will be known as 8711 at River North, is located in the River North at Keystone mixed-use development just east of the Fashion Mall.
“We are excited about our new headquarters and the advantages this new facility will bring our associates and our company,” said Jim Connor, chairman and chief executive officer of Duke Realty. “By being the sole office tenant in the building, we will be able to showcase our brand, business and successes and ensure a design focused on connectivity and collaboration. Plus our new location will meet associates’ preference for a Northside location with convenient interstate access, and provide them with access to many walkable amenities.”
Duke Realty’s offices will occupy 73,000 square feet of space in the building, with the remaining 5,000 square feet of space to be occupied by a restaurant. Duke Realty’s offices will feature outdoor terraces and a patio overlooking a 25-acre scenic lake. A parking garage with both below-grade and street-level spaces also will be part of the building.
Duke Realty’s new headquarters building is being developed through a partnership with PK Partners, an Indianapolis-based real estate development and investment company. Duke Realty will construct the new building on a 2.9-acre site where a now-closed Champps restaurant was located.
