New Townhomes in Warfleigh Scrapped (Updated)

New Townhomes in Warfleigh Scrapped (Updated)
lThe Indianapolis Business Journal mentioned a proposal  (about 2/3 of the way down) that has been withdrawn for the Warfleigh neighborhood, which sits just to the west of Broad Ripple overlooking the Central Canal. I had heard about this proposal for a while, but had yet to see any renderings. On Wednesday I discovered a neighborhood forum where the project was discussed with much derision, which piqued my curiosity even more. I asked a person who knows about the project if they had any information, and they sent me this PDF, which contained these renderings: This looks like a nice project to...

Red Cross HQ Redesign

Red Cross HQ Redesign
The Red Cross has downsized their proposed headquarters, and have released a couple of renderings, which have been posted in the most recent Department of Metropolitan Development’s Regional Center(page 69) staff report. It appears to fit in relatively well with the other structures that are further north on Meridian Street. It will take up a smaller lot, and free up more land for future development, which is good to see. This is a key component in the great parcel migration. Next will be the Mass Avenue Fire Station‘s move to the current Red Cross land. Also, the Fire Fighter’s...

While the majority of us undoubtedly know this to be true, it can often seem abundantly generalized to the extent that, in our own particular context, it becomes ambiguous. What exactly is changing here and now, and how is said change affecting the immediate world...

Old Town Greenwood Continues to Debate its Future

Old Town Greenwood Continues to Debate its Future
There’s a 3rd new plan up for debate for Old Town Greenwood, and it appears to be much improved. A few years ago, there was a plan to knock down many of the old buildings, widen the street, and replace the buildings with faux replicas.  Fortunately, this was shelved, and replaced with a plan that would keep the buildings, but turn the streets into one-way thoroughfares. This  has also been shelved. Now, there is a new plan by HWC Engineering and Axis. The plan is to restore building facades through a grant application process. They also plan to widen the sidewalks and eliminate turn lanes....

New Proposal at 718 N College Avenue
This is an update of the previous case by Milhaus to construct a new apartment complex in the Chatham Arch neighborhood. That case has been withdrawn, and a new proposal has been filed for a possible restaurant and bar with rooftop seating. A few renderings are shown below: This looks to be a nice proposal that makes good use of the existing structure. Social Media ...
