  1. Downtown is nice and all for work, but don't kid yourself that it is some end all be all place to be. Is it nice to be downtown when there are colts/pacers rallies, events on the circle, etc... Yes, if you have the time to get out and enjoy them. That is key, because if an employee is working away and doesn't get to enjoy where their job is located, locating in downtown doesn't make sense. Might as well be in an office park. I've worked downtown for a long time, and while it is nice to be down there for those events, it's also annoying. Roads are closed, noise from outside comes into the workspace, etc... Having worked downtown for such a long time, the best thing about it is that Circle Center is there so i can shop when i get time for lunch (that isn't rushed and eaten at my desk). The worst part is the perception of others who hear we are located downtown and think that is just awesome. I'm like not really. One other thing. If you are a business that actually has to interact w/the public locating in the 'burbs where there is free parking is important. We always have clients coming into the office complaining about finding parking and having to pay for it. Staff get a parking stipend so they are fine, but we don't start off our interaction w/clients on a good foot by the first thing we require them to do to come to our office is to pay to see us.

  2. Glad to see the Indy Eleven take off like that.

  3. Everyone keeps talking about Community North but no one has even said anything about the employees from HILTON that will be laid off and without jobs!! Community cares about themselves and expresses NO CONCERN for the 100+ employees without JOBS!! How about Community Share some COMPASSION FOR THEM !!

  4. Hiking blocks to an office after fighting traffic is not logical. Having office buildings around the loop, 465 and in cities in surrounding counties is logical. In other words, counties around Indianapolis need office buildings like Keystone, Meridian, Michigan Road/College Park and then no need to go downtown. Financial, legal, professional businesses don't need the downtown when Carmel, Fishers, North Indy are building their own central office buildings close to the professionals. The more Hamilton, Boone county attract professionals, the less downtown is relevant. Highrises have no meaning if they don't have adequate parking for professionals and clients. Great for show, but not exactly downtown Chicago, no lakefront, no river to speak of, and no view from highrises of lake Michigan and the magnificent mile. Indianapolis has no view.
