When Mayor Brainard approached Pedcor to develop the Carmel City Center, The Residences at Carmel City Center, Carmel Old Town Shops, and Indiana Design Center—it was no question for us to support our hometown.
We continue to lease spaces out to local businesses, restaurants, and boutiques, furthering the prosperity of the community and drawing in more patrons to our city.

Pedcor for the People|
Feeding Neighbors Partnership
No one can thrive on an empty stomach.
Due to the coronavirus pandemic, 54 million people may face hunger in the U.S. during 2020, including more than 18 million children. Kevin Rider, owner of divvy at Carmel City Center, understands that hunger knows no boundaries, and that his restaurant can help make a difference locally. In early June 2020, he created a meal assistance program with Pedcor Companies and Northview Church to provide meals for Hamilton and Marion county residents severely affected by the COVID-19 pandemic, as well as to healthcare workers at the Hamilton County city’s hospitals. In addition to the funding provided by Affordable Housing Partners, Inc. (a local non-profit), both Pedcor and its affiliate, United Fidelity Bank, fsb, have been active contributors to Feeding Neighbors which has allowed the program to be extended through the end of 2020.
