IU IncubatorIU is breaking ground today on a $10 million life-sciences and Internet-technology incubator in Bloomington. The new facility will be 40,000 square feet and is scheduled for completion by July. It will be built at 10th Street and the State Road 45/46 bypass. The school already has a 67,500-square-foot incubator downtown on the Central Canal. That facility is 98 percent occupied, with 23 tenants. What do you think of the new facility, which was designed by Indianapolis-based BSA LifeStructures?

  • The windows to the right look like the windows from my former elementary school! bleh!
  • I don't get downtown as much as I used to. Do you have a picture of the building on the canal? I'm assuming the picture shown now (12:33pm 11/18) is the building planned for Bloomington.
    Thanks.
  • Brian, check out the IU ETC webpage for a picture of their building:

  • BTW, the IUETC building on the canal was not designed / built for them -- It used to be Office Works, a commercial furnishings business.
  • this isn't indianapolis news.
  • It is Indianapolis news becuase they have a current building on the Canal and it is being designed by BSA. Also, it's not like there is currently too much news to digest in Indianapolis that we can't have news from surrounding areas.

    As a contractor in Indianapolis it is nice to see current projects in surrounding areas.

    This is not meant to serve as an EffKay comment, rather is my take on seeing building news from areas surrounding Indianapolis and their impact on our local business environment.

  1. If what you stated is true, then this article is entirely inaccurate. "State sells bonds" is same as "State borrows money". Supposedly the company will "pay for them". But since we are paying the company, we are still paying for this road with borrowed money, even though the state has $2 billion in the bank.

  2. Andrew hit the nail on the head. AMTRAK provides terrible service and that is why the state has found a contractor to improve the service. More trips, on-time performance, better times, cleanliness and adequate or better restrooms. WI-FI and food service will also be provided. Transit from outlying areas will also be provided. I wouldn't take it the way it is but with the above services and marketing of the service,ridership will improve and more folks will explore Indy and may even want to move here.

  3. They could take the property using eminent domain and save money by not paying the church or building a soccer field and a new driveway. Ctrwd has monthly meetings open to all customers of the district. The meetings are listed and if the customers really cared that much they would show. Ctrwd works hard in every way they can to make sure the customer is put first. Overflows damage the surrounding environment and cost a lot of money every year. There have been many upgrades done through the years to help not send flow to Carmel. Even with the upgrades ctrwd cannot always keep up. I understand how a storage tank could be an eye sore, but has anyone thought to look at other lift stations or storage tanks. Most lift stations are right in the middle of neighborhoods. Some close to schools and soccer fields, and some right in back yards, or at least next to a back yard. We all have to work together to come up with a proper solution. The proposed solution by ctrwd is the best one offered so far.

  4. Fox has comments from several people that seem to have some inside information. I would refer to their website. Changed my whole opionion of this story.

  5. This place is great! I'm piggy backing and saying the Cobb salad is great. But the ribs are awesome. $6.49 for ribs and 2 sides?! They're delicious. If you work downtown, head over there.
