FROM THE INDIANAPOLIS BUSINESS JOURNAL

NOBELSVILLE, IN — The Noblesville City Council approved the final agreement for the Noblesville Fieldhouse, a proposed $15 million youth sports complex.

The Noblesville Fieldhouse, which is being developed by Klipsch-Card Athletic Facilities LLC, is expected to contain five hardwood courts for volleyball, basketball, cheerleading, pickleball and futsal; plus 75,000 square feet of turf for baseball, softball, soccer and lacrosse; and concession stands and medical training space.noblesville fieldhouse 1000px

The 130,000-square-foot fieldhouse will be developed on a 10-acre property in the 200-acre Finch Creek Park on Boden Road.

Klipsch-Card Athletic Facilities, led by Andy Card and Mike Klipsch, is set to buy the property for $500,000, or $50,000 per acre, from the city.

Initially, the city had said it would contribute up to $800,000 annually for the fieldhouse operations and would have the ability to rent the facility to the public during weekday hours. Instead, the city has agreed to pay up to $550,000 per year for 20 years toward operations. In return, the fieldhouse is required to offer local not-for-profits and community groups a 25 percent discount off standard court rental rates.
