Another Parking Lot Gone?

Another Parking Lot Gone?
It appears the trend of developing our lowest and worst uses will continue with a new proposal for the storied parking lot at the northeast corner of Pennsylvania and Vermont. Perhaps inspired by TWG’s development on the old Indy Star site, this proposal calls for a 7-story, mixed-use building with 165 dwelling units, 157-space parking garage and 2,200 square feet of retail.

Through this process, the City has learned a great deal about the construction, maintenance and planning involved in creating a truly sustainable and connected system where users feel safe. Recently, the City announced plans to rework some of the first bike lanes developed along East New York and East Michigan Street. Originally white painted lines adjacent to vehicle traffic lanes, these bike lanes have...
