The newly renovated Kelly Park is now open for all to enjoy. This renovation is one part of the Lift Indy Grant investment into the Old Southside/Stadium Village area. The Stadium Village Business Association provided the seed money to invest in the application process that ultimately led to our area securing the Lift Indy Grant. SVBA members can be proud to see our membership dollars used to help transform our area and make a positive impact on the community.
The Tru by Hilton Indianapolis Downtown ( located at 601 Russell Avenue ) is officially open! The ribbon-cutting took place on Friday, Mar. 5, 2021. Stadium Village welcomes this new development into our area and we are excited for the momentum this project has created and for the other additional developments soon to open. See photos below of the ribbon-cutting event.

Tru by Hilton broke ground today on its newest location in Downtown Indianapolis! The hotel will be 148 rooms and is slated to open spring/summer 2020. Indianapolis-based companies Prince Alexander Architects and Midwest GC lead the development team for this project; Dora Hospitality Group will be managing hotel operations.
This is another development project highlighting the busy business activity currently taking place in Stadium Village in downtown Indianapolis.

About Lift Indy
Each year, the City of Indianapolis designates a new Lift Indy area through a data-driven and competitive process. The selected area will receive a significant portion of two U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development grants – the HOME Investment Partnerships Program (HOME) and Community Development Block Grant (CDBG).
Lift Indy comes as part of Mayor Hogsett’s commitment to transforming Indianapolis neighborhoods. This strategic investment of public funds aims to support the growth of economic development opportunities, the preservation and development of quality affordable housing, creative placemaking, availability of social services, infrastructure, public amenities, social engagement, and other aspects of quality of life that make up a complete neighborhood. The funds will be targeted in areas where public investments could help realize market potential.
We will be pulling dead shrubs out of the planters and could use your help. Please meet at Midwest Computer Accessories at 850 S. Meridian St. at 9:00 am tomorrow morning. We expect it only to take about an hour if we have enough help. Thanks and see you tomorrow morning!!
