Lakeland Financial Corp. in Warsaw, Ind., is making a push in its state's capital.

The $2.7 billion-asset company announced Thursday that it would build an 11,000-square-foot regional headquarters in Indianapolis, five years after it ventured 120 miles south from its headquarters with the opening of a loan production office. It said it hopes the office will be the first of many in that market.

Lakeland reported in late January that its fourth-quarter income rose 26% from a year earlier, to $5.8 million.
