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. Can your dog sign a marriage license or personally state that he wishes to join you in a legal union? If not then no, you cannot marry him. When you teach him to read, write, and speak a discernible language, then maybe you'll have a reasonable argument. Thanks for playing!

    2. Look no further than Mike Rowe, the former host of dirty jobs, who was also a classically trained singer.

    3. Current law states income taxes are paid to the county of residence not county of income source. The most likely scenario would be some alteration of the income tax distribution formula so money earned in Marion co. would go to Marion Co by residents of other counties would partially be distributed to Marion co. as opposed to now where the entirety is held by the resident's county.

    4. This is more same-old, same-old from a new generation of non-progressive 'progressives and fear mongers. One only needs to look at the economic havoc being experienced in California to understand the effect of drought on economies and people's lives. The same mindset in California turned a blind eye to the growth of population and water needs in California, defeating proposal after proposal to build reservoirs, improve water storage and delivery infrastructure...and the price now being paid for putting the demands of a raucous minority ahead of the needs of many. Some people never, never learn..

    5. I wonder if I can marry him too? Considering we are both males, wouldn't that be a same sex marriage as well? If they don't honor it, I'll scream discrimination just like all these people have....
