    • Where is 8510 E. 96th? Is that the Centre Properties building at the corner of Kincaid and 96th? I know they have been trying to get that building leased up for a while now.
    • hey cory - any news about the restaurant being built on 96th/i-69 area called the journey? it looks to be well built (brick, stone)...it right in front of the sam's club/menard's development. thanks

      ***also, any news on the market square deal?
    • Slow news day Cory, huh? :-)
    • Don't forget downtown! Starbucks is going in the AUL/OneAmerica tower and Jonathon Byrd's is being replaced by Southern Foods.
    • Ryan, I'm told the city committee considering the MSA proposals has met and is on target to have a decision by late June or early July. Stay tuned. I'll ask around about your restaurant question.
    • Sophia, don't you think auto parts, wings and workouts add up to big news? OK, so maybe it was a little slow.
    • Just givin ya a hard time. I get more information about Indy development from your blog in a day than I do reading the Star for a month.
    • Rippler, it is indeed the Centre properties building (the one that replaced Red Rock Roadhouse, that houses Beauty Brands and Panera, among other businesses). It's on the back side, facing toward Pep Boys.
    • I heard the proposed waterpark/hotel development in Fishers was on the rocks now - true?
    • Tossed is a terrible name for a restaurant. I guess at least it's not a cookie shop...

    1. How much you wanna bet, that 70% of the jobs created there (after construction) are minimum wage? And Harvey is correct, the vast majority of residents in this project will drive to their jobs, and to think otherwise, is like Harvey says, a pipe dream. Someone working at a restaurant or retail store will not be able to afford living there. What ever happened to people who wanted to build buildings, paying for it themselves? Not a fan of these tax deals.

    2. Uh, no GeorgeP. The project is supposed to bring on 1,000 jobs and those people along with the people that will be living in the new residential will be driving to their jobs. The walkable stuff is a pipe dream. Besides, walkable is defined as having all daily necessities within 1/2 mile. That's not the case here. Never will be.

    3. Brad is on to something there. The merger of the Formula E and IndyCar Series would give IndyCar access to International markets and Formula E access the Indianapolis 500, not to mention some other events in the USA. Maybe after 2016 but before the new Dallara is rolled out for 2018. This give IndyCar two more seasons to run the DW12 and Formula E to get charged up, pun intended. Then shock the racing world, pun intended, but making the 101st Indianapolis 500 a stellar, groundbreaking event: The first all-electric Indy 500, and use that platform to promote the future of the sport.

    4. No, HarveyF, the exact opposite. Greater density and closeness to retail and everyday necessities reduces traffic. When one has to drive miles for necessities, all those cars are on the roads for many miles. When reasonable density is built, low rise in this case, in the middle of a thriving retail area, one has to drive far less, actually reducing the number of cars on the road.

    5. The Indy Star announced today the appointment of a new Beverage Reporter! So instead of insightful reports on Indy pro sports and Indiana college teams, you now get to read stories about the 432nd new brewery open or some obscure Hoosier winery winning a county fair blue ribbon. Yep, that's the coverage we Star readers crave. Not.
