Locally based Buckingham Cos. has won the right to redevelop a two-acre property at 860 W. 10th St. near the IUPUI campus.

The developer plans to tear down the former YMCA branch and replace it with a $20.5 million mixed-use project featuring retail space, a fitness center and 210 apartment units.

The Center Township Advisory Board, which owns the property, had sought a project compatible with the Indiana Avenue Cultural District and nearby IUPUI and hospital campuses.

Buckingham will pay $225,000 in rent per year and has an option to buy the property after five years for an additional $3.3 million. Buckingham also agreed to fund $15,000 in college scholarships per year for 20 years for students at Crispus Attucks High School. Buckingham has constructed similar projects near the campuses of the University of Notre Dame in South Bend and the University of Kentucky in Lexington.

The structure, designed by locally based CSO Architects, is designed to be “refined and hip,” according to bid documents. “It has a defined base, with street-level detailing, a middle, and a cap element along its roof line. The storefront at the plaza is shown pulled out from the main core, providing visual interest with the scale change, as well as creating the opportunity for a rooftop deck.”

  1. I keep wondering why I keep hearing about this problem of corporations leaving America, and I never hear a reasonable proposal to lower corporate tax rates and raise personal rates on income from capital gains and dividends, especially for high earners. It is just too simple of a solution for Congress to embrace?

  3. is a disaster. SR37 already needs to be built to interstate standards between 465 and SR144. Southport Road is a mess each morning and evening.

  4. Bass Pro Shops would be good for the mall as well as a Giant Eagle Market District or a Jungle Jim's International Market Place grocery store like the one near Cincinnati Ohio.A Disney quest indoor theme park would be good.An Academy outdoor store would be good too.Indoor Circus shows and magic shows would be good as well. A casino with sports bar would be good.A Disney theater inside that shows movies and Broadway shows would work.Nashville Tennessee concert shops with indoor neon lights would be good.How about a theater that shows travel shows and theme parks. A train store would be good.How about a giant toy store with high tech video games.

  5. This development is in addition to Allpoints Midwest 5, Aitrtek, a recent FedEx and more in Plainfield. Greenwood and Brownsburg also have similar projects.
