The development of 3 large multi-use buildings at 10th and Indiana will break ground in August. This attractive project has the potential to reshape the area’s currently suburban-character, and not a moment too soon, as IUPUI is looking to start limiting the number of parking permits. Giving students and workers a place to live and shop in one location is a good start to make such cuts less painful.
I do wonder how successful this project can be without a complete makeover of the intersection to give pedestrians a welcome environment. I am unsure if any projects are in the works in that regard. Regardless, this is a good step in the right direction as far as IUPUI is concerned, and it’s a nice bonus that they are planning on reusing the materials from the YMCA.
