Spark Apartments

Axis Architecture Blog Post, News, Uncategorized

The Spark Apartments, a 190,000 sq. ft. multi-family development, located within the thriving Fishers’ Nickel Plate District is one of its anchor buildings. Finished in 2019, the $25 million project was designed to be timeless and offer it’s residents a luxurious living experience.


Distinctive Design

In keeping with the city of Fishers’ design standards, Axis explored ways to divide the building into separate blocks. This led to the use of different materials such as brick, metal, glass, and siding to create visual interest and break down the large block-long structure to appear as smaller buildings. The u-shaped complex is connected to a parking garage which created a large central courtyard featuring a garden, fire pit, and swimming pool.

Neighborhood Hub

At the time the Spark Apartments was conceived it was the first multi-family development in the area. The 211 one-, two- and three- bedroom units sit above 11 street level retail spaces that were designed to attract businesses and services. Their small footprint, originally conceived as a live/work environment, proved to be extremely attractive to local tenants.  The parking garage was constructed as a PPP, is shared by two adjacent office buildings, the first floor retail tenants and the public.

A vibrant partnership within the thriving Fishers’ community, Spark is a collection of modern apartment homes. Situated right off 116th Street and Lantern Road and adjacent to the Nickel Plate Trail, the development is a stone’s throw from the Nickel Plate District Amphitheater and is at the heart of one of the most vibrant neighborhoods in the greater Fishers region.
