Hotel_HSI_Logding_440px.jpg?1475674484

 

A New Orleans developer wants to build a 15-story hotel and seven-level parking garage on a downtown surface parking lot across from Bankers Life Fieldhouse.

 

HRI Lodging LLC is in the process of purchasing the property from owner Greg Allen, whose attempt to sell it in 2014 to another hotel developer fell through.

Kimbal Musk, brother to famous Tesla entrepreneur Elon Musk, will open his farm-to-table restaurant concept The Kitchen on Mass Ave in 2017.

 

Kimbal Musk defines the restaurant as a place where people may converse and connect over honest food, sort of like in the family kitchen at home. It will fill 5,000 square feet on the ground floor of The Marietta, a new building on Mass Ave next to the Marott Center at the junction of Massachusetts Avenue and Alabama and Vermont streets.

1000_Viginia_Ave_300px.jpg

 

Two projects could bring more residential units to the bustling Fountain Square and Fletcher Place neighborhoods.

 

The larger proposal (top image, click for larger view), which would be developed by Indianapolis-based Pearl Cos., calls for 74 units and 10,000 square feet of retail space on Virginia Avenue in the heart of Fountain Square.

 

The other (bottom) would include 1,200 square feet of retail and three for-sale condominiums in a newly constructed, three-story building in Fletcher Place led by Bluebeard restaurant owner Edward Battista and business partner Sam Sutphin.

Developer embarking on three downtown for-sale housing projects

 

REW_Jan3_condos_440px.jpg?1483458810

 

Onyx + East, the local housing developer that was spun off last year from Indianapolis-based Milhaus, has three for-sale housing projects in the pipeline downtown, two of which are set to break ground in the first quarter.

 

At the corner of North Street and Fort Wayne Avenue—just north of the Minton-Capehart Federal Building and adjacent to the Cultural Trail—the developer is planning 12, two-bedroom units in a two-building development. The $3.6 million project will include townhouses and flats ranging from 1,340 to 1,667 square feet and priced from the low $300,000s.

J.C. Hart Company Secures 2nd Broad Ripple Project, The Line – Urban Flats on the Monon

 

"Well, we’ve got some exciting news to share! J.C. Hart has acquired the former Rogers Pool property on Westfield Boulevard along with an adjoining parcel on which they will construct our 2nd multifamily project in Broad Ripple to be named The Line – Urban Flats on the Monon.

 

The Rogers property has been owned by the Blickman family since opening Rogers Swimming Pools there in 1959. The family has joined forces with J.C. Hart Company in a joint venture, Hoosier Line, LLC, to build the project which will feature 130 studio, 1, & 2 bedroom flats, designed by the architectural firm, Weaver Sherman Design. An adjoining parcel, which will be part of the property, was purchased from Veritas Realty. Final design work and the closing of construction financing will allow demolition by the spring with construction beginning in early summer of 2017."

Nice, Broad Ripp is really booming and densifying.  Indianapolis is interesting because from downtown north to Broad Ripple it's got to be close to 8 miles, and while there are some small nodes of commercial really the only main area is Broad Ripple.  But I think B Ripp is a lot bigger commercial district than any node in Cincinnati outside of OTR.  It really is a big area and they are really adding a ton of apartments there.  B Ripp is like adding together Oakley, Hyde Park and Mt. Lookout into one node, it seems.  Of course very different structurally but, interesting area nonetheless. 

 

Also, I kind of wonder if Cincinnati will see the type of re-development along the Wasson Trail as B Ripp has seen along the Monon Trail.  I highly doubt it, as a lot of the area along the Monon close to B Ripp seemed pretty tired and run down.  Most of the area along the Wasson is pretty well developed besides a few places and considering how much Hyde Park refuses to densify or add any commercial, I kind of doubt we will see much spin off development in that Hyde Park area, which kind of begs the question, what is the economic value besides being gift to Hyde Park?

TWG buying former Ford plant for apartment project

 

focus-ford-29-bp-450.jpg?1475769267

 

TWG Development Inc. is set to become the new owner of Ford Motor Co.’s vacated East Washington Street assembly plant that once was part of Angie’s List Inc.’s grand expansion plans.

 

The Indianapolis Public Schools board on Thursday voted to accept the apartment developer’s bid to buy the four-story, 102-year-old building for $1.65 million, which bested four competing proposals.

 

TWG plans to redevelop the 160,000-square-foot structure by converting the ground level into a mix of office and retail space, with market-rate apartment units on the top three floors.

Development taking off in east-side corridor

 

360-market2-450-bp.jpg?1488487841

 

Harrison College has put its downtown campus along East Washington Street on the market and is asking $11.5 million for the two properties—a steep jump from their assessed values but reflective of the area’s increasing potential for growth.

 

The five-block stretch of East Washington, from Alabama Street to College Avenue, had been devoid of new development for years until Milhaus Development LLC began building the Artistry apartment building in 2012 at Market and East streets, which was followed by a second phase on the same block called Mentor and Muse, bringing 500 units to the corridor.

 

Since then, activity has heated up. In January, Cummins Inc. opened its global distribution headquarters on the block west of Artistry, on part of the former Market Square Arena site, and two more apartment projects are under construction nearby.

What Indy really needs is a light rail line down Meridian with an offshoot to Broad-Ripple. The Downtown is booming too, but these stronger districts are disconnected and far apart. Indy lost a larger percentage of its population than Columbus did in its 1950 boundary area (the pre-WW2 urban core), so it is a largely disconnected city. The dense, vibrant nodes function as islands.

 

Still, the momentum is real, and the turnaround is a great to see!

Yeah, I think a rail line up to Carmel would be a boon for that Meridian corridor. There are some great Chicago-esque rowhouses and apartment buildings just north of downtown and I'd love for that area to start seeing Mass Ave-type development.

Debut of $37M Coil to kick off Broad Ripple apartment flurry

 

Broad Ripple’s quest to bring more residents into its commercial core and add more daytime traffic to the nightclub-studded neighborhood is about to get a big boost on April 1.

 

That’s when Browning Investments is set to open its $37 million Coil mixed-use development on North College Avenue along the northern edge of the Central Canal.

 

The project contains 151 apartments ranging in size from 550 square feet to 2,980 square feet and is anchored by a 33,500-square-foot Fresh Thyme grocery store. Monthly rents range from $950 to $2,500.

Could Indianapolis' White River riverfront look like this? Maybe, someday

 

Screen%20Shot%202017-04-03%20at%2011.21.06%20AM_1491293295921_57765739_ver1.0_640_480.png

 

Changes could be on the horizon for Indianapolis’ White River riverfront.

 

A group of Indianapolis leaders along with the White River State Park Commission’s Executive Director visited Wilmington, North Carolina last week to get some ideas for what they could do to the riverfront here in Indy.

 

The riverfront in Wilmington is often considered one of the most beautiful in the country, and city leaders who visited there last week are hoping to bring back some ideas on how to improve the riverfront here in Indianapolis and create competition for that title.

$41M apartment project in Mile Square moving forward

 

Construction on a $41 million apartment and retail project downtown should begin in the fall and finish in early 2019, developers told Metropolitan Development Commission members Wednesday.

 

Dubbed The Ardmore, the five-story development is slated to be built on 2.8 acres at the southwest corner of North Delaware and East New York streets. (Click on image for larger view.) That’s the same block as the 36-story Regions Tower, which was developed in 1970 and for many years was the tallest building in the state.

Goodwill, developer proposing $26M apartment project for near-west side

 

A local joint venture wants to build a four-story, $26 million apartment project on the near-west side that would be geared toward middle-income workers who can’t afford higher downtown rents.

 

Strategic Capital Partners is partnering with Goodwill of Central & Southern Indiana on plans to construct 220 units, 10,300 square feet of commercial space and 220 parking spaces at the southwest corner of West Michigan Street and White River Parkway—directly west of the White River. The project is named Riverview.

A Bizarre Park Called The Idle Is Planned For Downtown

 

Indianapolis tourism has always been hampered by the lack of an ocean, lake, shoreline, or mountains—something majestic for the advertisements, something obvious for visitors to gravitate to. Our something-majestic is the Indianapolis Motor Speedway. Concrete and pavement and fumes.

 

Not quite the same, right? Not so fast, says Tom Battista, one of downtown’s visionaries. He finds traffic fascinating, so much so that he’s creating a park overlooking downtown’s interstates. It’s called The Idle, and after five years of work on the plan, the wheels are finally turning. The Federal Highway Administration has signed off, Battista says, and yesterday, the project launched a $41,000 crowdfunding campaign with a matching grant.

A new plan to redevelop the former Omar Bakery property near East 16th Street is nearing city approval, with the proposal calling for the demolition of the vacant, century-old building.

 

After receiving the green light from the Regional City Hearing Examiner on May 11, the proposal from CalAtlantic Homes of Indiana (formerly Ryland Homes) to build 34 townhomes on the near-north-side lot is set to be presented June 7 to the Metropolitan Development Commission.

Can proposal to run train to downtown Indy for Colts, Pacers games overcome obstacles?

 

636325355653077016-indianatrainmuseum-ss-01.JPG

 

How's a train from Fishers to an Indianapolis Colts game, coupled with a little "rail-gating," sound?

 

Or a business-related excursion on a fine-dining car with a few dozen of your favorite corporate clients?

 

Those are some of the ideas being rolled out by the Indiana Transportation Museum for expanded service along the Nickel Plate rail line from Tipton to Indianapolis. The Noblesville museum submitted a proposal this week to the Hoosier Heritage Port Authority, which oversees the 37-mile line through Marion and Hamilton counties. The track is owned jointly by Fishers, Noblesville and Hamilton County.

Sounds like a great idea.  I'm guessing this rail line isn't unlike our Cuyahoga Valley Scenic Railway here in Cleveland.  It's interested that some suburban Indy folks want to tear up the track for a hiking trail... IIRC Indy has a couple other greenways where LRT could be/could have been built. Hiking trails are all well and good, but give me a working commuter rail line any day of the week.
