Broad Ripple Mixed Use Project V2.0

Broad Ripple Mixed Use Project V2.0
Urban Indy has obtained renderings of the revised mixed use development being proposed for the former Shell station (and neighboring apartment buildings) on the north side of the Central Canal in Broad Ripple.

Browning Investments, the developer of the now (up to) 100 unit apartment & retail complex, went back to the drawing boards after the initial renderings were released.

According to Jamison, there will be some changes to...

Update: Indy’s First Bike Boxes

Update: Indy’s First Bike Boxes
The following photos were received from DPW this morning. These were taken at 71st & Cross Key but the idea is the same for all 3 boxes on the north side bike route. We previously reported on these and how they were not painted. The unpainted box is shown below from our original report. According to Jamison Hutchins at DPW, the intent was to have them striped green from the beginning, the material simply was not available when the outlines were painted. Glad to see that they have been painted. Happy riding!
