If you are a regular reader, than you are familiar with the ongoing saga of the Di Rimini apartment compex located at 733 N Capitol Ave in downtown Indianapolis. A quick recap: In September of 2009, The Di Rimini under the name of Sarajo Commons submitted plans to the Indianapolis MDC and were accepted after negotiations to meet the new regional center design guidelines.
Construction started in early 2010 on the parcel of land with foundation work that was quickly followed by wood framework rising out of the ground. Last month, a review by the city uncovered 35 zoning violations. Urban Indy was first to report on this matter with a much more in depth analysis by Cory Schouten of the IBJ the same week which made the front page of the print edition.
Yesterday, the city issued a stop work order and an order forbidding occupancy. (Both images shown in this post). What this means at this point, is unclear and a legal battle could be brewing over the apartment complex developer’s lack of willingness to comply with it’s original submitted plans.
As stated before, we will continue to keep you posted as details are made public.
