REI’s history is rooted in the growth in Indianapolis, Indiana—one of America’s most dynamic, livable cities.
With investment in office developments in Carmel, Indiana beginning in the late 1970s… to the creation of major Downtown Indianapolis office buildings in the 1980s… REI has a long history of experience and expertise in the Greater Indianapolis area. In 1994, REI Real Estate Services was formed to lease, asset manage, construct, and develop these investments and others.
In the past three decades, we’ve seen Indianapolis grow from a “big small town” to a world-class American city. And we’re proud of the significant role we’ve played.
