The Indianapolis Advantage

Indianapolis is called the “Crossroads of America” because more interstate highways converge here than in any other U.S. city, including I-65, I-69, I-70 and I-74, enabling us to reach 75% of the U.S. population within one day’s drive. Indiana ranks as the #1 Place to Do Business in the Midwest and #5 in the nation (Chief Executive Magazine, 2016), and it offers the Best Business Tax Climate in the Midwest (Tax Foundation, 2014). Thanks to its central location, pro-business government, skilled workforce and world-class educational institutions, numerous industries thrive in Indianapolis, such as advanced manufacturing, logistics, life sciences and information technology.

Indianapolis is home to the world’s second-largest FedEx hub, with 4,000 employees and 2 million square feet of real estate. The Indy MSA’s industrial real estate market comprises 242 million square feet, while the office market totals more than 31 million square feet, including nearly 12 million in the central business district. The city is known for hosting major sporting events such as Super Bowl XLVI, the NCAA Men’s and Women’s Final Four Basketball Tournaments, the Big Ten Men’s and Women’s Basketball Tournaments, the Big Ten Football Championship Game and “The Greatest Spectacle in Racing,” the Indianapolis 500.

Indianapolis consistently ranks high on the list of America’s Most Affordable Cities (#9 – Forbes, 2015) making it a great place to live and work!

CW Indy Timeline_v3

In 1918, the FC Tucker company was formed, which was primarily a residential real estate company. The FC Tucker company started specializing in commercial real estate as well in 1957 and formed FC Tucker Commercial. In 1998, FC Tucker Commercial joined forces with Turley Martin out of St. Louis to form Colliers Turley Martin Tucker. That platform grew to include Cincinnati and Dayton, OH, Kansas City, MO, Minneapolis/St. Paul, MN and Nashville, TN.

In 2008, Colliers Turley Martin Tucker in the Central U.S.; Colliers Pinkard in Baltimore, Raleigh and Charlotte; Cassidy & Pinkard Colliers in Washington, DC; and Colliers ABR in New York City—merged to form a joint holding company. The four firms, part of the Colliers International network, continued to operate under their names and brands in each market, but consolidated leadership.

On March 1, 2010 the holding company of Colliers Turley Martin Tucker, Colliers Pinkard, Cassidy & Pinkard Colliers and Colliers ABR launched a new national company under the name of Cassidy Turley.

In January of 2015 Cassidy Turley was acquired by the private equity investment consortium backed by TPG Capital, PAG Asia Capital and Ontario Teachers’ Pension Plan. Cassidy Turley merged with DTZ, who was acquired in November 2014, and began operating as a single global firm. The combination of Cassidy Turley and DTZ created a global top-three commercial real estate services company. Cassidy Turley brought a legacy of strong local market leadership and penetration in the U.S., while DTZ offered an established full-service global platform.

Just five months since the acquisition of Cassidy Turley and DTZ, it was announced that DTZ and Cushman & Wakefield would merge and operate under the Cushman & Wakefield brand. DTZ and Cushman & Wakefield successful merged on September 1, 2015 creating a leading global real estate services firm with over $5 billion in revenue.
