Butler Apartments IrvingtonLocally based Reverie Estates has purchased the 53-unit Butler Apartments along Washington Street in Irvington and plans an extensive renovation including restoration of a clay tile roofline feature a prior owner removed. Some of the updated studio and one-bedroom apartments should be available by the summer and will rent starting at $400 for studios and $600 for one-bedrooms, said Christopher Piazza, Reverie's president. The company plans to restore original hardwoods, wood windows, soaking tubs and doors in the units, while installing new fixtures in the kitchens and bathrooms including stainless appliances, subway tile backsplashes and hex tile floors. Piazza did not disclose a purchase price for the property at 5230 E. Washington St. Common area features will include bike parking, a gated courtyard with community garden and parking with electric vehicle plugins. The apartments, built in 1927, have an assessed value of $652,000. Property records show the prior owner was a Carmel investor. Reverie owns three apartment buildings in Irvington including Audubon Court and The Reese, and also owns a handful of downtown buildings including Penn Arts at 111 E. 16th St., Piccadilly Apartments at 28 E. 16th St. and the Indy Indie Artist Colony at 26 E. 14th St.

  1. By Mr. Lee's own admission, he basically ran pro-bono ads on the billboard. Paying advertisers didn't want ads on a controversial, ugly billboard that turned off customers. At least one of Mr. Lee's free advertisers dropped out early because they found that Mr. Lee's advertising was having negative impact. So Mr. Lee is disingenous to say the city now owes him for lost revenue. Mr. Lee quickly realized his monstrosity had a dim future and is trying to get the city to bail him out. And that's why the billboard came down so quickly.

  2. Merchants Square is back. The small strip center to the south of 116th is 100% leased, McAlister’s is doing well in the outlot building. The former O’Charleys is leased but is going through permitting with the State and the town of Carmel. Mac Grill is closing all of their Indy locations (not just Merchants) and this will allow for a new restaurant concept to backfill both of their locations. As for the north side of 116th a new dinner movie theater and brewery is under construction to fill most of the vacancy left by Hobby Lobby and Old Navy.

  3. Yes it does have an ethics commission which enforce the law which prohibits 12 specific items. google it

  4. Thanks for reading and replying. If you want to see the differentiation for research, speaking and consulting, check out the spreadsheet I linked to at the bottom of the post; it is broken out exactly that way. I can only include so much detail in a blog post before it becomes something other than a blog post.

  5. 1. There is no allegation of corruption, Marty, to imply otherwise if false. 2. Is the "State Rule" a law? I suspect not. 3. Is Mr. Woodruff obligated via an employment agreement (contractual obligation) to not work with the engineering firm? 4. In many states a right to earn a living will trump non-competes and other contractual obligations, does Mr. Woodruff's personal right to earn a living trump any contractual obligations that might or might not be out there. 5. Lawyers in state government routinely go work for law firms they were formally working with in their regulatory actions. You can see a steady stream to firms like B&D from state government. It would be interesting for IBJ to do a review of current lawyers and find out how their past decisions affected the law firms clients. Since there is a buffer between regulated company and the regulator working for a law firm technically is not in violation of ethics but you have to wonder if decisions were made in favor of certain firms and quid pro quo jobs resulted. Start with the DOI in this review. Very interesting.
