The Indianapolis Historic Preservation Commission reviewed designs on Wednesday evening for four more buildings in the massive Bottleworks project proposed for the site of the former Coca-Cola bottling plant downtown.

 

Greg Uhen of Milwaukee-based Eppstein Uhen Architects highlighted an eight-story office building slated for the southwest corner of 10th and Bellefontaine streets and three mixed-use buildings set for the triangular section at the southwest end of the development at North College and Massachusetts avenues.

City preservation officials sign off on $260M Bottleworks project

 

A Wisconsin firm’s efforts to redevelop the 11-acre site of the former Coca-Cola bottling plant downtown took a major step forward Wednesday evening.

 

The Indianapolis Historic Preservation Commission unanimously approved with conditions the design from Hendricks Commercial Properties, which is proposing to build a $260 million mixed-use project on the property at North College and Massachusetts avenues.

 

IHPC awarded Hendricks a certificate of appropriateness that says the current design has a life of seven years, after which developers again would need to seek approval. The project is so large that it could take at least that long to finish it.

The owner of a historic building just three blocks from Monument Circle and across South Meridian Street from Circle Centre mall wants to demolish most of the structure to make way for a condominium development.

 

The project would stand six stories and blend new construction with old by incorporating the façade and another portion of the original building at 119 S. Meridian St. The project also would occupy a narrow property immediately to the north that currently is used for surface parking.

High-end row house project under way in Herron-Morton neighborhood

 

A local developer has started construction on a $6 million residential project that will bring more high-end homes to the thriving Herron-Morton Place neighborhood north of East 16th Street.

 

Litz & Eaton Development Co. is building 13 rowhomes as part of a two-building development on the west side of Pennsylvania Street. The surface lot on which the homes will be built sits just north of East 18th Street, in an area where pricey custom houses are cropping up with more frequency.

With Carson's out, what's next for Circle Centre?

 

Real estate experts say they are confident the three-story space Carson’s plans to vacate in Circle Centre mall can be filled, by another retailer or office user, despite the mall’s troubles.

 

Bon-Ton Stores Inc., the struggling parent of Carson’s and other mid-tier department store brands, announced Wednesday that the store at the corner of Meridian and Washington streets is one of more than 40 locations slated to close.

 

A liquidation sale is set to begin Thursday and could run for as long as 12 weeks, Pennsylvania-based Bon-Ton said in its announcement.

In about a month, developers will begin constructing 12 luxury condos on a half-acre plot of unused land in the Lockerbie Square neighborhood, just east of Mass Ave.

 

The $8 million Liberty Place is one of a handful of similar projects Litz & Eaton Development Co. is developing, including 13 Parisian-style row houses in Herron-Morton, and two more in Fletcher Place and Fall Creek Place.

 

"It's our brand to go into A+ neighborhoods and find rare pieces of land to build on," Litz Real Estate's Brad Litz said. "Lockerbie is probably the most desirable neighborhood Downtown."

A vacant, 120-year-old Downtown Indianapolis building may soon see new life as a 128-room hotel.

 

Officials of Everwood Hospitality Partners this month announced that the company has acquired the 12-story building located at 136 E. Market St., and will convert it into an Aloft Hotel.

 

Built in 1898, the building has served as law offices, a law library and a bank. The building's most recent anchor tenant was Stock Yards Bank & Trust.

Kite to build 2 hotels at Pan Am Plaza; city to spend $120M on attached meeting space

 

ICC_Expansion_Renderings%20_OP_2_CP__153

 

Indianapolis’ once-celebrated-but-now-underused Pan Am Plaza is the planned site of a $120 million, publicly funded addition to the Indiana Convention Center plus two privately funded Hilton-branded hotels that together would have more than 1,400 rooms.

 

The Capital Improvement Board voted on Friday to recommend construction of the convention center expansion and to work with Kite Realty Group Trust as the master developer on the project.

 

The resolution gives the CIB authority to work on a project agreement with Kite and an overall financing model.

 

The Kite plan was one of three submitted in March in response to the CIB’s request for proposals for another convention-style hotel with 800 to 1,000 rooms.

Mayor Joe Hogsett’s administration has endorsed the Kite plan.

 

A key component of the project is a 38-story, 800-room hotel that would be developed by Kite and branded as Hilton on the northeast corner of the plaza at Illinois and Georgia streets. It would be Indianapolis’ second-largest hotel, behind only the 1,005-room JW Marriott that opened in 2011.

 

Kite plans to build a second, 600-room hotel, as well, which would be on the southeast corner of the block at Illinois and Louisiana streets. It also would carry a Hilton brand.
