Property Management is the perfect fit for my talents and personality, and I love every second of it. I can’t wait for what comes next! ”

Glick Announces Name of New Keystone Property

May. 12, 2017

Indianapolis, Indiana, July 15, 2016 – Gene B. Glick Company announces the name of its newest apartment homes in the Keystone at the Crossing area of Indianapolis: Quarry at River North. Quarry will be part of the River North development, which is a joint venture between PK Partners and the Gene B. Glick Company, and will include offices, retail space, a parking garage and a hotel.

Located next to the Fashion Mall, Quarry will offer 196 luxury apartment residences. The name Quarry derives from 25-acre lake the project sits on which was once a stone quarry. The brand and design bridges the area’s history with its modern-day urban setting. Residents will appreciate luxurious features while having easy access to the lifeblood of the city including all of the shops, restaurants and other destinations at and around the Fashion Mall.

Quarry will include lavish finishes and amenities, such as concierge services, resort-style pool, screening room, wine cellar and tasting room, and many others services and offerings.

Construction is already underway on the project. Leasing is scheduled to begin in late summer 2016.


The Gene B. Glick Company was born out of a young WWII veteran’s desire to help his fellow GIs build homes for their families. Eugene Glick founded the company in 1947 in Indianapolis, and by the early 1960s, it was the largest single-family home builder in Indiana. Glick built its first apartment community in 1962, and by the mid-1970s, the business focused solely on multi-family housing development and management. Glick’s reputation was built on a commitment to integrity, quality construction, excellent service, and superbly maintained communities. Today, Glick is one of the largest privately held real estate management and development firms in the US, with more than 20,000 units in 11 states.


PK Partners is one of the most respected commercial real estate developers in the Midwest. The Company remains focused on developing, owning and operating first-class retail, office and mixed-use properties and has developed, redeveloped or renovated more than 25 commercial real estate properties in the Indianapolis market. PK Partners was founded in 1991.
