Fort Ben PX Building
With a vision for innovation and creativity, Meyer Najem has completely redeveloped the historic Fort Ben PX Building, and it’s now available for tenants. The building stands in an Opportunity Zone and is located in the Nationally Registered Historic District on Lawton Loop parade grounds.
Our Development team pursued an opportunity with the Fort Harrison Reuse Authority (FHRA) to own, redevelop, and lease the PX Building. Since the PX Building is located on the Lawton Loop, our team believes it provides a unique opportunity for future business owners to locate their office in a vibrant area that’s close to local amenities.
“This is a unique project, and we were thrilled to bring this building back to life for the community. The process began with considering what the possibilities were. We were involved from the visioning stages through development and completion of construction… a total turnkey process,” said Travis Tucker, EVP Development & Real Estate.
The PX Building was originally built in 1908 to serve as a post exchange, or PX, and a gymnasium for soldiers stationed at Fort Benjamin Harrison Army Base. After closing in 1995, the state of Indiana acquired 1,7000 acres to create Fort Harrison State Park. Eventually, the area was redeveloped into the mixed-use area that is now Fort Ben.
The building overlooks a ravine in the rear that is planned for a future art trail with a phenomenal view of the historic water tower.
