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.
Please join Mayor Joe Hogsett & the Department of Metropolitan Development as we announce the second Lift Indy neighborhood on Wednesday, October 31 at 10 a.m. at Kelly Park adjacent to the Concord Neighborhood Center located at 1310 South Meridian Street. There will be a press conference followed by a walking tour around the neighborhood led by Core Planning Strategies. If there is inclement weather, the press conference will be at Concord Neighborhood Center gymnasium.
All Stadium Village Business Association members are encouraged to attend!
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.
Next Wednesday April 18th we will be holding our first evening Stadium Village Business Association meeting at Omnisite located at 203 W. Morris St. (See picture below)
We thought we would hold one of these evening meetings once a quarter for folks that have a hard time coming to the morning meetings. Omnisite is graciously hosting this meeting for us in their new facility. Tom Ward, Lindsay, and the crew will be serving light appetizers and refreshments to us. Come and see what Tom has done to this age old building that was once a furniture factory.
The meeting will start at 5:00 pm with 30 minutes of networking and refreshments and our meeting starting at 5:30 pm. You’ll get a glimpse of all the exciting projects in Stadium Village, get an update on the neighborhood from Judith Essex, hear about our Beautification plan for May, and also hear about some new businesses moving to the area.
Hope to see you all there!! Plenty of parking is available on the west side of the building. Thanks for all your support.
The groundbreaking for the new TownePlace Suites Hotel by Marriott is scheduled for Wednesday, December 13th at 10am at 629 Russell Ave. Click on the link below to see the official press release. This will be the first of many new developments that are in the works for the Stadium Village area of downtown Indianapolis.
Below are a couple of links to ideas for development in areas that surround football stadiums. These proposals can give us some ideas for what can become of the areas surrounding Lucas Oil Stadium. The first is a proposal for a new stadium for the St. Louis Rams. The second link is about developments taking place around the Green Bay Packers stadium (Lambeau Field). Interesting stuff.
