Driving Tour: North Keystone

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.

  1. Those of you yelling to deport them all should at least understand that the law allows minors (if not from a bordering country) to argue for asylum. If you don't like the law, you can petition Congress to change it. But you can't blindly scream that they all need to be deported now, unless you want your government to just decide which laws to follow and which to ignore.

  2. 52,000 children in a country with a population of nearly 300 million is decimal dust or a nano-amount of people that can be easily absorbed. In addition, the flow of children from central American countries is decreasing. BL - the country can easily absorb these children while at the same time trying to discourage more children from coming. There is tension between economic concerns and the values of Judeo-Christian believers. But, I cannot see how the economic argument can stand up against the values of the believers, which most people in this country espouse (but perhaps don't practice). The Governor, who is an alleged religious man and a family man, seems to favor the economic argument; I do not see how his position is tenable under the circumstances. Yes, this is a complicated situation made worse by politics but....these are helpless children without parents and many want to simply "ship" them back to who knows where. Where are our Hoosier hearts? I thought the term Hoosier was synonymous with hospitable.

  3. Illegal aliens. Not undocumented workers (too young anyway). I note that this article never uses the word illegal and calls them immigrants. Being married to a naturalized citizen, these people are criminals and need to be deported as soon as humanly possible. The border needs to be closed NOW.

  4. Send them back NOW.

  5. deport now
