Angie’s List to expand
Angie’s List, a national provider of consumer reviews on local service companies, will invest $11.5 million to expand its campus on Indianapolis’ Near Eastside to accommodate the job growth and training of up to 500 new employees.
Angie’s List, which currently employs more than 500 people in Indianapolis, started in 1995 in Columbus, Ohio, with one employee – co-founder Angie Hicks. The company moved its headquarters to Indianapolis in 1999 and has since expanded to serve members in more than 200 cities across the U.S.
The company has already begun the hiring process for the 500 new employees. The new positions will include information technology, sales and member service.
Working with the neighborhood and Angie’s List, the city of Indianapolis will invest $7.1 million for infrastructure and neighborhood improvements through a combination of tax increment financing contributions, New Market Tax Credits and RebuildIndy funds. The Indiana Economic Development Corp. offered Angie’s List Inc. up to $7 million in performance-based tax credits and up to $100,000 in training grants based on the company’s job creation plans.
The Angie’s List campus is currently bordered north by Ohio Street, south by East Washington Street, to the west by Interstate 65/70 and to the east by Highland Avenue.
