Allen Commercial Group is offering for sale the first of 30 condos in its flagship nine-story Allen Plaza building along Pennsylvania Street downtown. The $14-million project includes five floors of condos, three floors of office space and Scotty's Brewhouse on the ground floor. And the firm, which has moved its headquarters to the building's second floor, is working on a phasing plan for its much-larger Penn Centre proposal. J. Greg Allen proposed the $135-million mix of hotels, condos and restaurants in 2007 for a stretch of surface parking lots across from Conseco Fieldhouse, but he had to put the project on hold when credit markets froze. Allen still owns the land and hopes to finish half of the project in time for the Super Bowl in 2012. Read more about Allen's downtown plans here.

  • Thank goodness...
    ...for developers like J. Greg Allen. I really wish him the best with Penn Centre as I see it as one of the most important downtown projects in many years. I have confidence that this guy will get it done!!!
  • Good Job
    Allen Plaza looks great and he has helped give life to long dormant area of downtown.

    I wish him the very best.
  • For Greg Allen, it is an ego thing. And for Indy that is a good thing. He is more liekly to push a project through that may not have the profit margin other developers want because it strokes his ego. I would expect him to develop Penn Centre or go bankrupt trying.
  • mind-blowing insight
    I think for most businessmen it's an "ego thing" Indyman.

  2. We are a nation of speed. All of our younger lives are filled with deadlines, quotas and bottom lines. We start to ease out of the pressured rat-race when we finally see "retirement." The most enjoyable travel on the planet is passenger rail service. Indy to Chicago does not beat Megabus or Southwest Airlines in speed. Passenger rail however has the best seating, mammoth legroon, seat backs that recline to more than 45 degrees and employers that really want you to return as a customer. Indiana municipalities need to maintain subsidies to support this transportation mode. Losing it is loss for all of us.
