Welcome to Property Lines, Indianapolis Business Journal's real estate blog. Your host is Scott Olson, the real estate beat reporter for IBJ.
  • You may be aware of this site aleady. There is a lively discussion thread about Indy development on there. Just a bunch of enthusiasts sharing news and opinions on real estate development.


    Thanks, Mike
  • Hadn't seen it. Good stuff. I'll add it to my rotation.
  • Any news on what's going on at the 400 block of North Penn? There are banners up in a couple of spots downtown, but I haven't seen anything in either the IBJ or Star about approval, likeklihood, etc. Thanks.
  • Any word on the Fresh Market development at 54th and college? Still waiting and it appears to be an empty parking lot; so much for coming in fall 2007. Have you heard anything?
  • Great sie
  • Katie - have you been past the area lately. Ground preparation has started and there seems to be activity. AT LAST!
  • Does anyone know what is going on with the old Flower Factory building behind the Castleton Mall???
  • TaTa Cuban Cafe is open
    137 W Market St
    Indianapolis IN 46204
  • What is going on up on 96th street and Keystone. 4 Restaurants have closed since last year. Nothing but Noodles got bought out. Bahama Breeze closed because of Darden Companies had trouble with Smokey Bones. Camille's closed last year and now DOOKZ Grill is gone. What will replace all these places?
  • Cory, have you heard of Outside.in?

    They let you contribute your blog to a neighborhood and you can geo tag certain items.

    It would be interesting to tag some of your posts and have the content show up on this site.

    Keep updating us on Indy development news. I would also like to know what is replacing Bahama Breeze...if anything. I miss that place!
  • Crystal – The E. 96th Street location has been listed for sale through a local broker.

    Thanks for your comment … we wish we could have made this location work, but unfortunately it just wasn’t the right type of location for the Bahama Breeze brand and the restaurant there was never going to reach the level of profitability we require. As we grow Bahama Breeze over the next several years, though, it’s entirely possible we will be back in the Indianapolis market, in a site that makes more sense for us.

    Have a wonderful Thanksgiving and a happy holiday season!

  • Any news about the Uptown development at 49th and College? I hear that Carreau Design was planning something, but haven't heard any news for almost a year.
  • Cory, I wonder if the LUCASVILLE name will stick. Are you aware of the 701 Kentucky Avenue offering? Anyway, 4 acres in one parcel is rare in Lucasville. The skyline around the new stadium is changing and this site will be part of the change. With it's river view and view of the downtown skyline the 701 Kentucky Avenue location has many possibilities. It will be interesting to watch how this site is redeveloped.

    Does anyone know what is going on with the old Flower Factory building behind the Castleton Mall???

    It is to become a RoomPlace furniture store. Imagine that a furniture store in castleton (lol)
  • Anyone know what's going on with the restuarant in the Chamber of Commerce Bldg? Seems they closed up. Plans for something new going there?
  • Bring your own caterer
    Anyone have a suggestion for a location in the Carmel/North Indy area that lets you rent it and bring in your own catering? I would even consider renting an entire restaurant. I would prefer the tables and linens etc. already be there. 120 people.
    Ever heard of renting a leasing property (like the old Bahama Breeze)for something like this?
  • Where's The Container Store
    Is it just me or does anyone else think we are overdue for The Container Store in this market. It's time!
  • trinitas zoning denied
    What on earth happened to the Trinitas Zoning denial for parking for the Student housing project on Indiana Ave?
  • Estridge
    You may want to dig into what is going on at Estridge. They've apparently sold their Anderson Hall lots to Fischer Homes.
  • Village of West Clay
    Cory, I was wondering if you had an opinion on the VWC/Brenwick/Pulte debacle. It's been reported in the star and WTHR. I was in the area this weekend and asked a few of the unhappy residents about the situation. They directed me to a website


    Wondering your thoughts?
  • Bridges Dev at 116th Street and Spring Mill Rd
    This had an interesting zoning board meeting last night. The first of several it would seem.

  • Cheddars coming to greenwood!
  • follow-up
    Cory, I recently moved to Indy from Des Moines, IA and have enjoyed reading this blog/newsletter to see what is doing on in town. I was wondering if you do any type of follow-up work on your articles? For example, a couple of the restaurants and stores that are supposed to be coming to town have not yet and it has been months since your article was published.
  • Indianapolis Star
    Hearing a rumor from a VERY reliable source, that The Indianapolis Star is close to announcing plans to move into Artistry. They're just waiting on a few minor details to be ironed out.
  • IndyStar
    I have a second source confirming that The Star is planning on a move to Artistry beginning in Q1 of 2014. Why hasn't there been a story on this?
  • Old News
    Can some of the articles/comments be purged on Property Lines? Comments from 2007?

  1. This is still my favorite Mexican restaurant in town. What I do love about the new version is it is much quieter than the most recent version. TV's were off, the music wasn't too loud, and the wait staff were not hyperactive like they had been the past few times I had been there. I just wish they would bring back the MOLE for the enchiladas!

  2. Not a bad paper. There is a need for local community news and city government issues. Don't really need the owner's constant national political rants. We all know where they stand by now.

  3. What nice people. Menard should've known better than to team up with the guy who robbed and drove Conseco to ashes. I'm surprised Timothy Durham isn't involved in this.

  4. Hello, I am Maris Peters, currently living in Texas city, USA. I am a widow at the moment with three kids and i was stuck in a financial situation in August 2014 and i needed to refinance and pay my bills. I tried seeking loans from various loan Companies both private and corporate but never with success, and most banks declined my credit. But as God would have it, I was introduced to a Man of God a private loan lender who gave me a loan of $65,000USD and today am a business owner and my kids are doing well at the moment, if you must contact any firm or company with reference to securing a loan without collateral , no credit check, no co signer with just 2% interest rate and better repayment plans and schedule, please contact Mr William David. He doesn’t know that am doing this but am so happy now and i decided to let people know more about him and also i want God to bless him more.You can contact him through his email: Davidloanfirm@yahoo.com

  5. It is beyond me how anyone can think this was a "bad deal" for the state! If they could take the money back then, yes, but they can't! Protections were built in the agreement. Now, if they roll the roads up and take them away, I will agree that it was a bad deal. Otherwise, the only way to have paid for the infrastructure that was badly needed was for the state to issue bonds....that is a four letter synonym for debt folks!!
