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 am so impressed that the smoking ban FAILED in Kokomo! I might just move to your Awesome city!

    2. way to much breweries being built in indianapolis. its going to be saturated market, if not already. when is enough, enough??

    3. This house is a reminder of Hamilton County history. Its position near the interstate is significant to remember what Hamilton County was before the SUPERBROKERs, Navients, commercial parks, sprawling vinyl villages, and acres of concrete retail showed up. What's truly Wasteful is not reusing a structure that could still be useful. History isn't confined to parks and books.

    4. To compare Connor Prairie or the Zoo to a random old house is a big ridiculous. If it were any where near the level of significance there wouldn't be a major funding gap. Put a big billboard on I-69 funded by the tourism board for people to come visit this old house, and I doubt there would be any takers, since other than age there is no significance whatsoever. Clearly the tax payers of Fishers don't have a significant interest in this project, so PLEASE DON'T USE OUR VALUABLE MONEY. Government money is finite and needs to be utilized for the most efficient and productive purposes. This is far from that.

    5. I only tried it 2x and didn't think much of it both times. With the new apts plus a couple other of new developments on Guilford, I am surprised it didn't get more business. Plus you have a couple of subdivisions across the street from it. I hope Upland can keep it going. Good beer and food plus a neat environment and outdoor seating.
