Developer gets OK for second phase of apartment project

A West Lafayette developer has received final approval from the city of Indianapolis to begin construction on the $20 million second phase of a student housing project along Indiana Avenue near IUPUI.

Trinitas Ventures of West Lafayette plans to construct two five-story apartment buildings and a four-story parking garage on a surface parking lot at 1201 Indiana Avenue, between Montcalm and Milburn streets south of 14th Street.

The Metropolitan Development Commission’s Regional Center Hearing Examiner on Thursday approved vacating of an alley between Montcalm and Milburn streets, allowing Trinitas to proceed with the project.

Trinitas plans to break ground next spring and should be finished by fall of 2014, said Travis Vencel, director of site acquisition and planning.

Plans call for the project to be developed on two parcels. One would include about 7,000 square feet of first-floor retail space along Indiana Avenue with 99 residential units along Montcalm Street.

The other parcel would include 115 apartments connected to the four-story garage.

The second phase would include a total of 214 apartments in addition to the 253 Trinitas already has on the seven-acre site.

It completed a four-story building in August 2011 that is fully occupied, Vencel said.

“We’re very pleased with the performance,” he said.

Indianapolis-based CSO Architects Inc. designed the latest phase of the project. Dallas-based Humphreys & Partners designed the first.

  • Re: location
    Brandon, they meant to say south of 15th Street. The garage and new apartments will be in the block north of the existing building. The second building, which includes retail, will be on the block immediately west of the existing building.

    Where is this going? The location you describe: "on a surface parking lot at 1201 Indiana Avenue, between Montcalm and Milburn streets south of 14th Street." is where they just opened the new building last year. So this development isn't going there. Is it going in west of Montcalm? Is it going between Montcalm and Milburn north of 14th St? Is it going in the grass field east of Milburn? Did I go back in time to read an old story?

  1. Now if he'd just stay there...

  2. Daniel - what about the many US citizens who do NOT follow what the Bible teaches? The Hindus, Jews, Muslims and others who are all American citizens entitled to all rights as Americans?? This issue has NOTHING to do with "What the Bible says..." Keep all Churches separate from State! Pence's ongoing idiocy continues to make Indiana look like a backwards, homophobic state in the eyes of our nation. Can't we move on to bigger issues - like educating our kids?

  3. 1. IBJ should link to the referenced report. We are in the age of electronic media...not sharing information is lazy. Here is a link http://www.in.gov/gov/files/Blue_Ribbon_Panel_Report_July_9_2014.pdf 2. The article should provide more clarity about the make-up of this panel. The commenters are making this item out to be partisan, it does not appear the panel is partisan. Here is a list of the panel which appears to be balanced with different SME to add different perspectives http://www.in.gov/activecalendar/EventList.aspx?view=EventDetails&eventidn=138116?formation_id=189603 3. It suggests a by-pass, I do not see where this report suggests another "loop". 4. Henry, based on your kneejerk reaction, we would be better off if you moved to another state unless your post was meant as sarcasm in which case I say Well Done. 5. The article and report actually indicates need to improve rail and port infrastructure in direct contradiction to Shayla commentary. Specifically, recommendation is to consider passenger rail projects... 6. People have a voice with their elected officials. These are suggestions and do not represent "crony capitalism", etc. The report needs to be analyzed and the legislature can decide on priorities and spending. Don't like it, then vote in a new legislature but quit artificially creating issues where there are none! People need to sift through the politics and provide constructive criticism to the process rather than making uninformed comments in a public forum based on misinformation. IBJ should work harder to correct the record in these forums when blatant errors or misrepresentations are made.

  4. Joe ... Marriage is defined in the Bible ... it is mentioned in the Bible often. Marriage is not mentioned once in the US or Indiana Constitution ...

  5. Daniel - Educate me please: what does the Bible have to do with laws? If the government wasn't in the business of marriage to begin with, then it wouldn't have to "define" marriage at all. Marriage could be left as a personal, religious, or otherwise unregulated action, with no ties to taxes, legal status, etc. Then people could marry whomever they want, and all this silliness would go away. Remember to vote Libertarian in November.
