Indianapolis announces short list for creating justice complex

Back to TopCommentsE-mailPrintBookmark and Share

The city of Indianapolis Tuesday morning announced three development groups that will be invited to submit proposals for a new criminal justice complex.

Five groups initially responded to the city's call for candidates to build the facility, which would relocate and and consolidate county jails, criminal courts and other related offices and agencies from disparate locations in the southeast quadrant of the Mile Square. The project is expected to cost $200 million to $400 million.

The groups on the short list are:

— WMB Heartland Justice Partners, led by equity members Meridiam Infrastructure Indy Justice LLC, Balfour Beatty Investments Inc. and Walsh Investors LLC with major non-equity contributions by Walsh Construction Co. II LLC, Heery International Inc., Cofely Services Inc., Skidmore Owings & Merrill LLP; and Dewberry Architects.

— Indy Justice Partners, led by equity members Fengate Capital Management Ltd., AECOM Global Fund I LP and Shiel Sexton Co. Inc., with major contributions by W.G. Yates & Sons Construction Co., Tishman Construction Corp. and Johnson Controls. Frost Brown Todd LLC attorneys are non-equity members.

— Plenary Edgemoor Justice Partners, led by Plenary Group USA Ltd. and Edgemoor Infrastructure & Real Estate LLC. Major non-equity members are Clark Construction Group LLC, F.A. Wilhelm Construction Co. Inc., HDR Architecture Inc. and CBRE. Krieg DeVault LLP is a non-equity member.

Two groups were eliminated: Metro Justice Partners, led by HOCHTIEF PPP Solutions North America Inc. and Brookfield Financial Corp.; and CGL Justice Partners, led by CGL Management Group LLC, Macquarie Capital Group Limited and local developer Browning Investments LLC.

The city has not named the building site but anticipates doing so before issuing a request for revised proposals, scheduled to come in April. The revised proposals would be due from candidates in late summer. The city would then select a preferred group and submit the project for approval to the City-County Council.

The city contracted with CBRE to do a market survey, which identified Indianapolis International Airport property near the Hendricks County line as the leading candidate. The airport site is off Washington Street east of Raceway Road.
