Artistry IndianapolisThe $30 million redevelopment of the former Bank One Operations Center at 451 E. Market St. now has a name: Artistry. The five-story project by locally based Milhaus Development calls for 258 apartments and up to 68,000 square feet of first-floor commercial space. The first phase is under construction; a second phase would add 200 apartment units. The LEED-certified building would offer a variety of amenities, including valet trash, recycling and laundry. Courtyards would include a fountain, vegetable garden, bocce court and putting green. Other features include an art gallery, theater, cafe, wellness studio and aqua lounge. The first apartments are scheduled to be available in October. Rents will range from about $800 to $1,800. The architect is CSO, and the branding/marketing firm Q7Associates is responsible for the Artistry name, chosen to reflect "an appreciation of the arts and the neighborhood’s history of craft and skill."

Bonus rendering: The Axis at Block 400

Marsh at The Axis IndyMarsh Supermarkets and Flaherty & Collins Properties broke ground Tuesday on The Axis, a mixed-use project at the corner of Michigan Avenue and Senate Street that calls for more than 400 apartments and a 40,000-square-foot Marsh store, the chain's first new location since 2004. Work has already begun on a 930-space parking garage at Illinois and New York streets to make way for the conversion of the surface parking lots. All told, the project is expected to cost about $85 million. The grocery store is scheduled to open in the spring of 2014. An earlier post is here.

  • No yellow
    Get rid of the yellow bump out windows that will date the Artistry building very quickly.
  • Mellow Yellow
    Not bad for CSO.
    • Density/Height
      I wish at both of these locations that they could have pushed the envelope and gone more than 5 stories. A 6-8 story building seems like it may be more sustainable as the city grows and land becomes more and more valuable.
    • Artistry?
      Nice rendering, but terrible name. Artistry?? Come on now!
    • Momentum
      After a decade of impressive infrastructure growth aimed at visitors and entertainment (airport, stadium, convention center, JW Marriott) it is very exciting to see projects breaking ground aimed at expanding the residential base of the city. The one thing missing downtown is a dense population and these two projects, along with City Way and The Hinge, are all contributing to real change. I could complain about design but I will instead simply be happy to see these project moving forward and bringing day-to-day energy to our downtown streets.
    • :)
      My sentiments, exactly, George! :)
    • CSO
      What's with with backhanded compliments to CSO? Do you people even know what you're talking about?

    1. I think the poster was being sarcastic and only posting or making fun of what is usually posted on here about anything being built in BR or d'town for that matter.

    2. Great news IRL fans: TURBO the IMS sanctioned movie about slugs running the Indy 500 has caught the Securities and Exchange Commission because Dreamworks had to take a $132MILLION write down...because the movie was such a flop. See, the Indy/IMS magic soiled another pair of drawers. Bwahahahahahaha! How's CARTOWN doing? HAHAHAHA...Indy is for losers.

    3. So disappointed in WIBC. This is the last straw to lose a good local morning program. I used to be able to rely on WIBC to give me good local information, news, weather and traffic on my 45 minute commute.Two incidents when I needed local, accurate information regarding severe weather were the first signs I could not now rely on WIBC. I work weekend 12 hour nights for a downtown hospital. This past winter when we had the worst snowfall in my 50 years of life, I came home on a Sunday morning, went to sleep (because I was to go back in Sunday night for another 12 hour shift), and woke up around 1 p.m. to a house with no electricity. I keep an old battery powered radio around and turned on WIBC to see what was going on with the winter storm and the roads and the power outage. Sigh. Only policital stuff. Not even a break in to update on the winter storm warning. The second weather incident occurred when I was driving home during a severe thunderstorm a few months ago. I had already gotten a call from my husband that a tornado warning was just southwest of where I had been. I turned to WIBC to find out what direction the storm was headed so I could figure out a route home, only to find Rush on the air, and again, no breaking away from this stupidity to give me information. Thank God for my phone, which gave me the warning that I was driving in an area where a tornado was seen. Thanks for nothing WIBC. Good luck to you, Steve! We need more of you and not the politics of hatred that WIBC wants to shove at us. Good thing I have Satellite radio.

    4. I read the retail roundup article and tried Burritos and Beers tonight. I'm glad I did, for the food was great. Fresh authentic Mexican food. Great seasoning on the carne asada. A must try!!! Thanks for sharing.

    5. John, unfortunately CTRWD wants to put the tank(s) right next to a nature preserve and at the southern entrance to Carmel off of Keystone. Not exactly the kind of message you want to send to residents and visitors (come see our tanks as you enter our city and we build stuff in nature preserves...
