Even if you haven't driven North Keystone lately, you know the big story here is Glendale. Fences are up and demolition has begun. Still OpenLocally based Kite Realty Group is transforming the enclosed mall into an open air shopping center, Glendale Town Center, complete with a Target store. Meanwhile, the developer is trying to support the stores that are "STILL OPEN."
A few other observations from the area: The Arby's with the old-school sign just north of Fall Creek Parkway has closed, and the sign is gone. A stretch of Keystone north of the old Arby's is fast becoming Self-Storage City, as several new facilities have opened. Finally, across from Glendale, the first of several LA Fitness locations around Indy has opened. They weren't kidding about these things being big. What else is going on in this area?

  • Sullivan's expanded too recently. There has been lots of activity in the Walmart area, which includes the best Italian place in town, Capri. The outlots have been developed nicely.

    What's the status of the Keystone Towers? That should be made into affordable housing by the feds/locals, I don't think market rent is going to work there.
  • Kite remodeled Glendale into the most beautiful mall in the city... and then drove it in to the ground, slowly and painfully. Maybe they should stick to remodeling and get out of the management biz. Neighbors await the newest transformation with great concern and anxiety. We don't really want a SuperTarget. We want Glendale Mall, full of shops and services, well-run.
  • Speaking of North Keystone, what happened to the apartments known, I believe, as The Landing, just north of Wal-Mart. I don't drive by there very often, but did recently and noticed they were torn down. What gives?
  • They're building condos.
