Mozzo Apartments IndianapolisMilhaus Development is scheduled to begin demolition next week on an old Bureau of Motor Vehicles branch to make way for the $6 million Mozzo Apartments along Virginia Avenue. The four-story building, shown here in a fresh rendering, calls for 64 studio, one-bedroom and two-bedroom apartments and corner cafe space along the Cultural Trail. The first-floor studios are designed for flexibility between residential and commercial uses. The open-concept apartments with 9-foot ceilings and granite countertops will range between 500 square feet and 1,069 square feet and rent for $865 to $1,350. An earlier post on Mozzo is here. What do you think? (Click for a larger version.)

  • I dig
    Will be nice to see the parking lot filled, the old building knocked down, and a new project that respects the neighborhood and surrounding infrastructure, being built.
  • Belagio
    Anything that blocks the south facing side of the Page Development to the north has to be an improvement. The started with a industrial looking parking garage and now have block in the south side between floors with concrete grey blocks. Real urban/grit feel there. This is only slight less attractive than the whole south side of the condo building,looks like an old industrial building with tiny windows where large use to be.
  • Excited to See Development
    I'm excited to see the development. The overall building looks good. I question the camouflage color scheme, but everything else is great!
    • Big improvement
      I walk by the building every day and it is an eyesore to say the least. I am a bit concerned about parking, but would welcome more stores on the Virginia Ave. corridor. I loved how on the North side of the street that the Fletcher Apts are conveniently missing so one gets a view of downtown.
    • PJ (Christie?)
      I disagree with your "camouflage" comment. I'm pretty stoked that something besides the standard mixed brick facade is being used. It's good to see some variety, and Fountain Square is the right place for it.
    • Good Infill Project
      Good infill project with proper urban form and design. This project will contribute much to the Fountain Square neighborhood by bringing more residents, foot/bike traffic, and new business/retail. Happy Indy is finally getting some quality urban infill projects.
    • great infill
      I am surprised that the project cost came out to be below $6M (I believe it's $5.8M). Is that due to no parking (I don't see it mentioned in the article)? If so, then this is a clear indication that we should change some of the parking requirements downtown (and let market forces determine if parking is needed).
    • parking
      is in the back (I just read it in their original petition. Anyway, considering their relatively low budget, this development looks pretty good.
    • Finally
      I'm happy to see an infill development---along with the Hinge---which finally feels more urban. The density is great with elevations and storefronts which fit into the neighborhood. THANK YOU for not using the typical INDY BRICK FACADE standard: FINALLY! I can't see much detail from the elevations but I don't care. It totally contrasts one of the worst representations of generic, suburban 'luxury living': the Beilony (or whatever it's called?). This gives Indy hope for future neighborhood developments and proper infill architecture.
    • Oops
      Sorry, I meant the Belagio (too bad it's in such a prime location)
    • Not Bad
      I'm relatively pleased. Which means a nice job for Indy. Execution will be critical though.

    1. The Affordable Care Act is not the reason for the slow recovery and lack of high paying jobs for low skill workers. This is a trend that has been going since the early 80's. The recovery is real in the sense that GDP has been growing steadily at a rate of roughly 2.5% since the recession ended in late 2009 (newsflash, the stimulus worked) and the unemployment has been steadily dropping. The reason issue we are facing deals with a skills gap (not enough workers with the right credentials / experience) and wage stagnation due to corporate America being focused solely on maximizing profits for shareholders and not caring about the American middle class. Why should they? Multi-billion dollar mutlinational companies keep offshoring their profits in order to avoid paying taxes (which makes our deficit worse) they convince Americans to fight amongst themselves. If you want to create jobs and reduce the deficit, raise the minimum wage and change corporate tax laws. Of course, if you want to continue to belive that tax cuts for wealthy create jobs (which they don't) and allow corporations and the wealthy to continue to make you cover more and more of the costs of maintaining infrastructure, funding the military and other government services, then keep voting Republican. Hopefully someday you wake up and realize what's been going on since Reagan took office.

    2. Helloooooo, my name is Kate. I am so joyous to share this wonderful testimony about what Dr. Osoijiakhena, a great spell caster, did for me and my family. I wedded a year and 6 months ago, we were very happy during this whole period, i really love my husband so so much. I started noticing changes when he started coming home late at night, he stop paying attention to me, i later found out that he was having an affair with another lady, i dont know what she did to get to him but she really got a hold on him. He started spending weekends with her, and threaten for divorce. I was so heart broken and devastated, i spent many night thinking on how to get my husband back. A friend took it upon herself to to introduce me to one Dr. Osoijiakhena, a great spell caster, who once helped her with a spell that reunited her family and helped her husband secure a very prolific job. Though i had my doubts and never believed, but i decided to give it a try because i was helpless. I contacted Dr. Osoijiakhena, the Spell caster, to help me reunite my family by bringing back my husband from that other woman and break whatever hold she had on him. He only just told me that it's a minor issue, once i provide and do everything he will ask me to do, then i will have my family back again. I did everything he required. And he did it!!!!! My husband returned back to me and pleaded for forgiveness, and i also secured a well paid job in a big company, just as the great spell caster, Dr. Osoijiakhena said. I am so so happy to share my testimony on this wall. I am using this medium to tell every one that has same or similar problem to try the great Dr. Osoijiakhena through his mail: is so real!!!!! He can also help you with: (1) IF YOU WANT YOUR EX GIRL/BOYFRIEND TO RETURN BACK TO YOU (2) IF YOU WANT YOUR HUSBAND/WIFE BACK (3) IF YOU WANT TO BE PROMOTED IN YOUR OFFICE (4) IF YOU WANT YOUR MAN OR WOMAN TO LOVE YOU (5) IF YOU WANT A CHILD (BARREN) (6) IF YOU WANT TO BE RICH/WEALTHY (7) IF YOU WANT YOUR HUSBAND/WIFE TO BE YOURS FOREVER (8) IF YOU'VE BEEN SCAMMED AND WANT YOUR MONEY BACK (9) IF YOU ARE HAVING DELAY IN GETTING MARRIED (10) IF YOU HAVE A COURT CASE AND WANT TO WIN (11) IF YOU'RE A DRUG ADDICT AND YOU WANT TO REALLY STOP (12) IF YOU CANNOT IMPREGNATE A WOMAN (STERILE) (13) ALL TYPES OF DISEASES I advise you to contact the great Dr. Osoijiakhena, the spiritualist for solutions via his email:

    4. My spring chicken of a Mom is turning 75 years young. She is a big fan of Frankie and I think she would get a big kick out of the film. I wanted to take her to the Broadway play but am priced out. Thanks for your time and consideration. Oh yea, Wildwood! Joie

    5. I thought this company would go bankrupt in 2013/2014. I predicted that four years ago. I was wrong. It will take another couple of years, but they will get there.
