Diamond Equipment - New Workshop,  Offices, and Showroom

Diamond Equipment, an Evansville-based company, has been selling and renting new and used construction and agricultural equipment since 1969. This growing business serves a large section of the population by renting equipment to both private and public workers. If you see city and county workers out fixing streets and infrastructure, they may have rented their backhoes, excavators, and other machinery from Diamond Equipment. 

Since their start in 1969, they’ve employed a large number of Evansville residents and expanded to five locations to better serve their customers. Currently located off Diamond Avenue on Evansville’s Northside, Diamond Equipment is set to relocate its headquarters to Lynch Road, just West of the Southern Indiana Career and Tech Center. 

Their new location is an expansive 23,000 square foot building that includes a new workshop with a 10-ton crane inside and 4 huge fans to keep workers comfortable. The showroom at the front of the building has an open floor plan to display large equipment to prospective buyers. 

With a larger showroom and workshop, Diamond Equipment has the opportunity to serve more local contractors that all rely on them for equipment purchases, rentals and servicing.

Historic Strouse Building Renovation

Downtown Evansville’s historic Main Street district is lined with amenities including shopping, eateries,offices, the Victory Theater, and the Ford Center, a 10,000 seat event and sporting arena. Residents living in nearby condos and apartments would agree that Main Street is a great place to work and play. 

The Strouse Building, a Historic Building located on Main Street, is now the target of another incredible LA+D renovation that will offer even more options to travelers and residents. The existing building was previously the Strouse Department store. Although it was built in 1946, most of the interior still has original finishes and decorative ceiling elements from the original build. It’s gorgeous!

The Strouse Building currently houses a fitness gym, but after the renovation, it will include a gym plus three new tenant areas. Two of the street level spaces are being renovated into a new restaurant and bar concept that will continue to grow the local food industry.
