St. Clair ProjectKeystone Construction plans to break ground next week on a $7.6 million senior apartment building at 10th Street and Keystone Avenue. The 33-unit building dubbed St. Clair Senior Apartments also will include 3,600 square feet of retail and office space. The project, which sits in the Super Bowl Legacy development area, received state and local tax credits. The developers are Indy-East Asset Development and Riley Area Development Corporation. It was designed by Halstead Architects.

  • Cool!
    Very nice, very urban looking. My only question is what are those two balconies on the corner? There doesn't appear to be any way to access them, at least as depicted in the rendering.
  • Finished Rendering?
    Cory, is this a finished rendering? If so, where are the doors to the corner balcony in the foreground? Or, are these two balconies just inaccessible space?

    Anyway, this is very exciting news for the St. Clair neighborhood. Let's hope the retail/office space can find good tenants. I fear 10th street may have more retail space available than is feasible for this area.

  • Response to PJ
    I assume it's a finished rendering since groundbreaking is scheduled for next week.

    Can anyone involved in the project clarify?
  • Rather basic renderings. The siding looks like T 111 siding.
  • Hmm
    Looks like a child of the live-work townhomes at 25th & Delaware and the Boner Center. Not a bad thing, but I agree with the assertion that more retail space is the last thing the area needs.
  • Exterior and Balconies
    The corner balconies are indeed accessible from the corner units. Please remember renderings rarely depict the final buildings in great detail. The building facade is primarily masonry and metal panels. No T111.
  • siding
    Looks like board and batten siding detail. Assume it will be painted which means more Maintenance in future eg. rot and painting
  • Details
    Metal siding that appears board & batten. Yes there are access doors to the balconies on both floors thru the unit that has the balcony.
  • Sketchup
    Nice project. But sketchup should never qualify as final renderings.
  • why?
    I'm guessing from the description above this is located at 10th & Rural, not 10th & Keystone. If I'm wrong please correct me. Why put a senior apt living space here, or better yet, why throw away 7+MM on this corner dive. Excuse my opinion, as I know some will take exception to this; however, as CRE projects go, location is vital for longivity and ultimately funding. I believe there to be little reasoning to invest in this area, Super Bowl or not. "See a need, fill a need", NOT HERE!!
  • probably not breaking ground
    The MDC continued the rezoning case for this project to 11/17/10, so they'll probably won't be breaking ground next week:
  • Seriously?
    The final rendering should include basic details like doors and windows...LOL! Seriously, who was responsible? I think this building is great for that location, and personally, I think it's nice to provide senior living space within a more traditional 'storefront' setting than your typical suburban apartment facility way off the street. These people should be included within the neighborhood...a more urban one at that! It's a step in the right direction.
  • Lay off - this is good
    This is a great thing for a reviving neighborhood - lay off the renderings. Most contractors discount their services for non-profits, so pretty (expensive) 'final' renderings are less important than actually delivering the project. I'm excited to see this stretch of 10th St. with the Jefferson, this project, and the infrastructure complete!
  • Keystone
    It is Keystone, not Rural. And while you may not find it a good idea to invest in this area, you should mention why. To meet it seems reasonable to offer senior apartments in areas where seniors need housing.
  • Another One?
    Seems that we are close to repeating the mistake of the Remini apartments on Capitol that do not resemble the approved drawings. How can we be sure of the final product based on this very preliminary sketch from an inexpensive software program? I would require something much more detailed, including specifications before allowing this to even break ground. Let's learn from past mistakes.
  • Yes, Ron's right
    Any sixth grader could have made as good a computer drawing. How much are these guys being paid for such unprofessional work. Would you buy anything based on drawing like this?
  • Senior living
    My husband and I were getting simply exhausted keeping up with our four bedroom home and yard. So I did some research and found some great Senior Living Communities! Now we’re as comfortable and happy as can be!

  5. Problem: most of the people responding to this article don't know about this service AT ALL! Why? Lack of awareness. This isn't IndyGo. This is CIRTA: might as well be the mattress company because they are asleep at the wheel - something like 3 directors over the last year? Playing with federal grant money is great! This "region" wants commuter rail service, has spent MILLIONS on Transportation studies yet can't even support a commuter bus line? This is largely for suburban riders to get to downtown - not for "service people to work in our hotels and restaurants" ! Get your head out of your backside!! These are professionals, students etc. that don't want to fight traffic, save some money on parking, gas, stress.... if CIRTA would put their federal money into widely promoting the sevive to Greenwood, Fishers & Carmel instead of finding directors and studies - this would be a successful service. Our family uses(d) it daily for the last several years - but the recent uncertainty & now unreliability due to cuts from Carmel has been a problem. Now, costs us an additional $350/month for gas & parking ( $4200/year) plus vehicle wear, service, environmental impact ... YES - this REGION needs this this type of service in order to keep growing and getting the people it needs to fill skilled positions in downtown Indianapolis. Think outside of your own car !!!
