For years, a dilapidated structure has sat on a triangular patch of land on Indianapolis’ northeast side. The property bound by Binford Blvd, Allisonville Road and 45th street named Keystone Towers is a structure which for all intents and purposes, has turned into an eyesore. It is abandoned, behind on property taxes, vermin infested and rumored to be deteriorating on the interior portions. It is covered in graphitti, and also rumored to be home to many squatters.
Recently, local media announced that the city had taken over posession of the property and the most popular rumor is that this place will be demolished, and the land offered up via RFQ by the city for redevelopment. Local discussion forums have already erupted arguing the merits of tearing the place down and starting fresh, to rehabilitating the standing structure
I have included a site plan of the area with the two towers lined in red and the property itself marked in green. Binford Blvd is basically a limited access highway to the east and not worthy of any sort of driveway leaving Allisonville Road as the primary entrance route and 45th street as a secondary entrance.
So…. if you had a say, what would YOU do with this site?
