Office/Retail projectA two-building office and retail complex at the corner of Meridian and 96th Street will include a Paradise Bakery & Cafe and a McAlister's Deli. Landmark Properties is developing the 45,700-square-foot project just south of McDonald's. One of the buildings will be three stories and the other will be two. Both will include retail on the first floor. The project was designed by Noblesville-based Curran Architecture.

  • You know what else would go great there? A Starbucks!
  • Anyone know whats gonna happen with the closed Kro-ghetto at 96th and Meridian?
  • The parking lot in that rendering looks great!
  • this looks like a nice development (again, higher density!), but i agree with liberty bell (ha ha - nice name) with the parking lot. i hope that will be towards the back. this city, for some reason, neglects to put buildings right up on the sidewalk. that creates sprawl and it's unfortunate and annoys me everytime i see a project like that. we should be encouraging pedestrian traffic with every new development (less car trips, more calories burned). but again, this will be a nice overall addition to a marquis area in need of some polishing...
  • The parking is on the west side of the building. The rendering is from the west looking east. Meridian Street would be int he background. The building is pushed up as close to Meridian Street as zoning ordinances will permit, with just a drive lane between the grass/landscaping that will exist between Meridian and the buildings.
  • I'm glad Curran Architecture has been chosen for this building. I like a lot of their other work, like the animal hospital on Rangeline Road in Carmel. Their style is a lot of midwestern-prairie style updated with a very clean, modern chic.
  • Shawn, thanks for the clarification!

  1. Really, taking someone managing the regulation of Alcohol and making himthe President of an IVY Tech regional campus. Does he have an education background?

  2. Jan, great rant. Now how about you review the report and offer rebuttal of the memo. This might be more conducive to civil discourse than a wild rant with no supporting facts. Perhaps some links to support your assertions would be helpful

  3. I've lived in Indianapolis my whole and been to the track 3 times. Once for a Brickyard, once last year on a practice day for Indy 500, and once when I was a high school student to pick up trash for community service. In the past 11 years, I would say while the IMS is a great venue, there are some upgrades that would show that it's changing with the times, just like the city is. First, take out the bleachers and put in individual seats. Kentucky Motor Speedway has individual seats and they look cool. Fix up the restrooms. Add wi-fi. Like others have suggested, look at bringing in concerts leading up to events. Don't just stick with the country music genre. Pop music would work well too I believe. This will attract more young celebrities to the Indy 500 like the kind that go to the Kentucky Derby. Work with Indy Go to increase the frequency of the bus route to the track during high end events. That way people have other options than worrying about where to park and paying for parking. Then after all of this, look at getting night lights. I think the aforementioned strategies are more necessary than night racing at this point in time.

  4. Talking about congestion ANYWHERE in Indianapolis is absolutely laughable. Sure you may have to wait in 5 minutes of traffic to travel down BR avenue during *peak* times. But that is absolutely nothing compared to actual big cities. Indy is way too suburban to have actual congestion problems. So please, never bring up "congestion" as an excuse to avoid development in Indianapolis. If anything, we could use a little more.

  5. Oh wait. Never mind.
