Indy was a blast during Super Bowl XLVI last week.  I spent a lot of time hanging out downtown.  Unlike most recent Super Bowls, all of the major events were concentrated in the heart of downtown.  Over 1.1 million people came downtown over ten days, enjoying the fantastic Super Bowl Village along three blocks of Georgia Street - which has been converted into a pedestrian focused corridor (like 200,000 "pedestrians" on Friday night).   Two stages were set up with packed concerts filling the streets pretty much every night.   Bands ranged from local groups to LMFAO, The Village People, Morris Day and the Time, En Vogue, Patty LaBelle, and many others.  Other huge parties were going on all over the downtown area including one with Katy Perry and another one with Lupe Fiasco.   Buddy Guy was playing at the Slippery Noodle.   Lots of Fun.   Amazingly - the late January through early February weather was unbelievably, unseasonably warm and sunny -- with high temps mostly in the 50s and low 60s.   There were also 4 Zip Lines running for about two blocks over Capitol Avenue next to the Convention Center.   Oh yeah --- then there was the game at Lucas Oil Stadium (which is why I posted this here).

Everything was exceptionally well run.   The Giants scored in the last minute to take the four point lead that they barely held onto until the clock expired as a Hail Mary pass from Tom Brady fell a foot or so from a diving Rob Gronkowski.  Many positive comments were sent out fromsports writers and other journalists from across the US and from other places around the world.  Things have now returned to normal -- but hopefully the successful hosting of this huge event will help Indy continue to land many more huge sporting events and large conventions for the next several decades.

Playing catch-up with Indianapolis.

Developers of $50M Mass Ave project drop billboard from design



 Developers of a $50 million mixed-use development to be built on Massachusetts Avenue have dropped a controversial three-story electronic billboard from the project’s design. They also changed the building's name.

Desma Belsaas, an architect at Schmidt Associates, the designer of the residential-retail development formerly known as Montage on Mass, informed the Indianapolis Historic Preservation Commission of the decision Wednesday.

New plans, which IHPC approved unanimously, now call for a “glazed feature” made of glass in the rectangular space on the facade that was previously reserved for the “digital canvas,” Belsaas said.

“It became clear that ‘the billboard’ was not something the commission would approve, so we still have this rectangle to get approval from the commission,” she told IHPC members.

Firm redeveloping ex-Coca-Cola plant faces daunting preservation challenges



The stately campus of art deco buildings adorned in terra cotta along Massachusetts Avenue east of College Avenue once churned out 2.3 million Coca-Cola bottles a week as the largest bottling facility in the world.

Today, the plant designed by Rubish & Hunter and built starting in 1931 represents one of the city’s trickiest preservation challenges.

It has been maintained with few alterations since the late 1960s by Indianapolis Public Schools, which used it as a warehouse, bus garage and central kitchen. But the property’s purchaser, Wisconsin-based developer Hendricks Commercial Properties, wants to turn the 11-acre site into a $260 million development with apartments, offices, retail space, a hotel and a movie theater—all while incorporating as much of the historic character as possible.

High-rise hotel pitched for surface lot across from fieldhouse



A New Orleans developer wants to build a 15-story hotel and seven-level parking garage on a downtown surface parking lot across from Bankers Life Fieldhouse.

HRI Lodging LLC is in the process of purchasing the property from owner Greg Allen, whose attempt to sell it in 2014 to another hotel developer fell through.

Kimbal Musk to open restaurant on Mass Ave



Kimbal Musk, brother to famous Tesla entrepreneur Elon Musk, will open his farm-to-table restaurant concept The Kitchen on Mass Ave in 2017.

Kimbal Musk defines the restaurant as a place where people may converse and connect over honest food, sort of like in the family kitchen at home. It will fill 5,000 square feet on the ground floor of The Marietta, a new building on Mass Ave next to the Marott Center at the junction of Massachusetts Avenue and Alabama and Vermont streets.

Two projects on main drag could add more housing to hot neighborhoods



Two projects could bring more residential units to the bustling Fountain Square and Fletcher Place neighborhoods.

The larger proposal (top image, click for larger view), which would be developed by Indianapolis-based Pearl Cos., calls for 74 units and 10,000 square feet of retail space on Virginia Avenue in the heart of Fountain Square.

The other (bottom) would include 1,200 square feet of retail and three for-sale condominiums in a newly constructed, three-story building in Fletcher Place led by Bluebeard restaurant owner Edward Battista and business partner Sam Sutphin.

Developer embarking on three downtown for-sale housing projects



Onyx + East, the local housing developer that was spun off last year from Indianapolis-based Milhaus, has three for-sale housing projects in the pipeline downtown, two of which are set to break ground in the first quarter.

At the corner of North Street and Fort Wayne Avenue—just north of the Minton-Capehart Federal Building and adjacent to the Cultural Trail—the developer is planning 12, two-bedroom units in a two-building development. The $3.6 million project will include townhouses and flats ranging from 1,340 to 1,667 square feet and priced from the low $300,000s.

J.C. Hart Company Secures 2nd Broad Ripple Project, The Line – Urban Flats on the Monon

"Well, we’ve got some exciting news to share! J.C. Hart has acquired the former Rogers Pool property on Westfield Boulevard along with an adjoining parcel on which they will construct our 2nd multifamily project in Broad Ripple to be named The Line – Urban Flats on the Monon.

The Rogers property has been owned by the Blickman family since opening Rogers Swimming Pools there in 1959. The family has joined forces with J.C. Hart Company in a joint venture, Hoosier Line, LLC, to build the project which will feature 130 studio, 1, & 2 bedroom flats, designed by the architectural firm, Weaver Sherman Design. An adjoining parcel, which will be part of the property, was purchased from Veritas Realty. Final design work and the closing of construction financing will allow demolition by the spring with construction beginning in early summer of 2017."

Nice, Broad Ripp is really booming and densifying.  Indianapolis is interesting because from downtown north to Broad Ripple it's got to be close to 8 miles, and while there are some small nodes of commercial really the only main area is Broad Ripple.  But I think B Ripp is a lot bigger commercial district than any node in Cincinnati outside of OTR.  It really is a big area and they are really adding a ton of apartments there.  B Ripp is like adding together Oakley, Hyde Park and Mt. Lookout into one node, it seems.  Of course very different structurally but, interesting area nonetheless. 

Also, I kind of wonder if Cincinnati will see the type of re-development along the Wasson Trail as B Ripp has seen along the Monon Trail.  I highly doubt it, as a lot of the area along the Monon close to B Ripp seemed pretty tired and run down.  Most of the area along the Wasson is pretty well developed besides a few places and considering how much Hyde Park refuses to densify or add any commercial, I kind of doubt we will see much spin off development in that Hyde Park area, which kind of begs the question, what is the economic value besides being gift to Hyde Park?

TWG buying former Ford plant for apartment project



TWG Development Inc. is set to become the new owner of Ford Motor Co.’s vacated East Washington Street assembly plant that once was part of Angie’s List Inc.’s grand expansion plans.

The Indianapolis Public Schools board on Thursday voted to accept the apartment developer’s bid to buy the four-story, 102-year-old building for $1.65 million, which bested four competing proposals.

TWG plans to redevelop the 160,000-square-foot structure by converting the ground level into a mix of office and retail space, with market-rate apartment units on the top three floors.

Development taking off in east-side corridor



Harrison College has put its downtown campus along East Washington Street on the market and is asking $11.5 million for the two properties—a steep jump from their assessed values but reflective of the area’s increasing potential for growth.

The five-block stretch of East Washington, from Alabama Street to College Avenue, had been devoid of new development for years until Milhaus Development LLC began building the Artistry apartment building in 2012 at Market and East streets, which was followed by a second phase on the same block called Mentor and Muse, bringing 500 units to the corridor.

Since then, activity has heated up. In January, Cummins Inc. opened its global distribution headquarters on the block west of Artistry, on part of the former Market Square Arena site, and two more apartment projects are under construction nearby.
