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. In reality, Lilly is maintaining profit by cutting costs such as Indiana/US citizen IT workers by a significant amount with their Tata Indian consulting connection, increasing Indian H1B's at Lillys Indiana locations significantly and offshoring to India high paying Indiana jobs to cut costs and increase profit at the expense of U.S. workers.

    2. I think perhaps there is legal precedence here in that the laws were intended for family farms, not pig processing plants on a huge scale. There has to be a way to squash this judges judgment and overrule her dumb judgement. Perhaps she should be required to live in one of those neighbors houses for a month next to the farm to see how she likes it. She is there to protect the people, not the corporations.

    3. http://www.omafra.gov.on.ca/english/engineer/facts/03-111.htm Corporate farms are not farms, they are indeed factories on a huge scale. The amount of waste and unhealthy smells are environmentally unsafe. If they want to do this, they should be forced to buy a boundary around their farm at a premium price to the homeowners and landowners that have to eat, sleep, and live in a cesspool of pig smells. Imagine living in a house that smells like a restroom all the time. Does the state really believe they should take the side of these corporate farms and not protect Indiana citizens. Perhaps justifiable they should force all the management of the farms to live on the farm itself and not live probably far away from there. Would be interesting to investigate the housing locations of those working at and managing the corporate farms.

    4. downtown in the same area as O'malia's. 350 E New York. Not sure that another one could survive. I agree a Target is needed d'town. Downtown Philly even had a 3 story Kmart for its downtown residents.

    5. Indy-area residents... most of you have no idea how AMAZING Aurelio's is. South of Chicago was a cool pizza place... but it pales in comparison to the heavenly thin crust Aurelio's pizza. Their deep dish is pretty good too. My waistline is expanding just thinking about this!
