Meyers Construction Management, Inc. and Meyer Najem Construction have started work on improvements for the Nickel Plate District Amphitheater (AMP) in Fishers.
The project, with a budget of upwards of $7 million as reported by Inside INdiana Business, is expected to be completed this summer.
The work includes:
- A redesigned parking lot behind Fishers Police Station, allowing for more seating at the AMP and creating symmetrical parking in the parking lots located behind the police and fire departments.
- Improved connectivity around the AMP through wider, better connected sidewalks.
- The addition of a fountain for all ages located south of the new AMP Pavilion to enhance the experience of visitors to the Nickel Plate District,
- Relocation of the current restrooms to be located more centrally in the AMP Pavilion. Current restrooms located inside the AMP will be repurposed for storage and to create a green room for performers.
“Beyond those improvements, the AMP stage will also be modified to accommodate musicians and performances of all types,” Fishers says on its website. “A new stage will be 25 feet deeper, and an added sound wall will enhance aesthetics looking at the stage, while also improving the listening experience that pushes the sound out into the crowd. Additionally, renovations include an elevated lawn with additional drainage, sloping, and pathway to help with storm water drainage. The grassy knoll will include contour elevation for a better viewing experience regardless of seating proximity to stage.”
