Little Five PointsA local developer has filed plans to build 64 apartments and a 1,700-square-foot cafe to replace a former BMV branch and parking lot at 531 Virginia Ave. The $5.8 million project, led by Indianapolis-based Milhaus Development, would be called The Mozzo after the Italian word for hub. The project is a few blocks north of The Hinge, another apartment and retail development already under construction. The $7.5 million project, led by local architect Craig Von Deylen, will bring 56 market-rate apartments over a parking garage with 57 spaces, along with 12,000 square feet of commercial space along Virginia Avenue. Just about every building and corner along a four-block stretch of the street in the historic Holy Rosary neighborhood southeast of downtown is under construction or will be soon. In addition to the ground-up projects, a handful of new building owners are renovating vacant spaces and existing tenants are expanding (See map above, click for a larger version).

  • Blah
    Mozzo looks to be the italian word for bland. Those elevations look more like a 1950s hospital wing/tenement housing than a modern development. While I'm happy for the reuse, I think something a bit more visually dynamic can be designed for that area.
  • Cultural Trail
    I wonder at what point the very poorly informed out there will fess up that, indeed, the Cultural Trail has made a huge impact, spurring private investment all along it? This is such great news!

  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.
