Boone County Wins the Draw!
I’m sure it wasn’t actually a draw, still, the outcome of Medco’s decision to build it’s pharmaceutical distribution center in Boone County is a big win for both Boone County and the Indianapolis area. Medco will make it’s new home in AllPoints at Anson.
The creation of employment in Anson fits right in with the original plans of the developers. Anson consists of over 1700 acres, about 20 miles northwest of Indianapolis. This master planned community combines residential, business, greenways, parks and schools for the optimal lifestyle; a place where you could work, live, play and shop, all within minutes of each other.
The Anson project has taken awhile to get off the ground. While it seemed to be stalled, work there has been continous. Recently, anchor tenants backed out, KB Homes left the Indianapolis area and pulled out of Anson. Now, Meijer has been named an anchor tenant and Lowes will begin construction early next year.
Developers are looking at local builders for residential development. I personally love this area of Indiana. Located just north of Eagle Creek, northwest of Traders Point and west of Zionsville, Anson is ripe for growth in the next few years. Eventually, there will be over 600 homes built in Anson. I believe this is just the beginning of huge growth in Northwest Indianapolis. I hope it includes a mall somewhere in the future
