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. Those of you yelling to deport them all should at least understand that the law allows minors (if not from a bordering country) to argue for asylum. If you don't like the law, you can petition Congress to change it. But you can't blindly scream that they all need to be deported now, unless you want your government to just decide which laws to follow and which to ignore.

    2. 52,000 children in a country with a population of nearly 300 million is decimal dust or a nano-amount of people that can be easily absorbed. In addition, the flow of children from central American countries is decreasing. BL - the country can easily absorb these children while at the same time trying to discourage more children from coming. There is tension between economic concerns and the values of Judeo-Christian believers. But, I cannot see how the economic argument can stand up against the values of the believers, which most people in this country espouse (but perhaps don't practice). The Governor, who is an alleged religious man and a family man, seems to favor the economic argument; I do not see how his position is tenable under the circumstances. Yes, this is a complicated situation made worse by politics but....these are helpless children without parents and many want to simply "ship" them back to who knows where. Where are our Hoosier hearts? I thought the term Hoosier was synonymous with hospitable.

    3. Illegal aliens. Not undocumented workers (too young anyway). I note that this article never uses the word illegal and calls them immigrants. Being married to a naturalized citizen, these people are criminals and need to be deported as soon as humanly possible. The border needs to be closed NOW.

    4. Send them back NOW.

    5. deport now
