Dear Mr. Laszlo and Mr. Gutshaw,

On behalf of Indy Partnership please extend our gratitude to your client for including the Indianapolis Region in their evaluation for a national service center operation. We look forward to learning more about this project and working with you to help your client locate and grow in our community.

This web portal was created specifically for Project Blossom to present data about the Indianapolis Region. This is a secure portal that can only be accessed with the link provided to you.  It is not searchable on the internet.

We have completed the Project Blossom RFI and it is attached to the right along with any referenced attachments.  Also attached to the right is a .pdf document titled "Blossom - Indy Building Options".  Included in this document are 5 buildings that may suit your client.  We received 4 other building options however they did not meet the requested 8/1000 parking ratio.  Ifyou would like to receive the other 4 options we will be happy to provide them upon request.
