Move will shuffle Flagship tenants

ANDERSON, Ind. — When Keihin North America begins its lease at the Flagship Enterprise Center’s main building, 2701 Enterprise Drive, many current tenants on the incubator side will need to make room.

Keihin will be on the second floor and part of the first, which could impact about 75 percent of current tenants, said Flagship president and CEO Chuck Staley.

Some have already moved, he said.

“Most of the clients (affected) have planned for this,” Staley said. “The ones that haven’t are still glad for Anderson, the county and the community.”

For example the Madison County Chamber of Commerce, which is currently on the first floor, will be “seeking new digs,” said president Kyle Morey. They have a few prospects and will move by the end of February.

Some, like the Levinson Center and the Corporation for Economic Development, could stay in the same building but relocate to the wing housing extensions for Anderson and Purdue universities, Staley said.

“They have a natural affinity, a natural relationship to the university, its internships and its students,” he said.

Others, still, would find new facilities outside of Flagship, he said. Though, many of those were “ready to graduate” from Flagship and go out on their own already.
