My DIY friend Shelly Leer of ModHomeEc has some exciting things planned for the future of her business and today I went with her for a meeting at a cool office building in Fishers, an upscale Indianapolis suburb.
I’ve been in these types of buildings before but most are fairly boring spaces. Not the Fishers Office Suites, which is owned by Yeager Properties.
From the outside, the building looks incredible – bright yellow panels frame a steel and glass structure.
Inside (see at right), the steel continues, mixed with concrete, stone, bamboo and lots of salvaged materials.
The office suites – each with its own salvaged wood door – are along a long corridor with metal accents.
There are slanted walls and big windows. The bathrooms have concrete slab countertops. And there are interesting accents everywhere, like the fun wall lamp below right.
The building offers conferences rooms that all the suite holders can use.
We met in small that had a rustic conference table with a metal tray in the center filled with river rock.
Some kind of salvaged industrial pieces served as the table’s pedestals and bamboo decorated the walls. The old doors slid open and closed on metal tracks.
It had a striking glass and metal table that was lighted from below and curved glass panels on the walls.
According to the building’s website, tenants get high speed internet access and shared access to a kitchenette, fitness area, and copier and fax machines.
Also, tenants at one of the Yeager locations have access to conference rooms at other locations.
It seems like a pretty cool deal. I didn’t see specifics but suites in the Yeager buildings start at $350/month according to the site.
