VIDEO: Work on Fashion Mall at Keystone enters home stretch

Back to TopCommentsE-mailPrintBookmark and Share

Some much-anticipated upgrades to the high-profile Fashion Mall at Keystone will be ready for shoppers by mid-November, before they slam the retail center at the official start of the holiday shopping season.



The multimillion-dollar improvements ready for Black Friday will include 30,000 square feet of new retail space to the mall, much of which will be occupied by a ritzy new food court with its own high-profile entrance on the mall’s southern face.

“It’s basically our new take on a modern, upscale food court,” said Ed Huebner, director of marketing for the retail center. “We’ll have quick-service dining. It will be very healthy."

Confirmed tenants for the food court—to be dubbed Fashion Café—will include Freshii, a Canadian concept serving burritos, wraps, soups and salads; Elevation Burger, a Virginia-based chain that serves up burgers made from organic grass-fed beef; and Pinkberry, a California based frozen yogurt chain.

Huebner and other representatives of Indianapolis-based mall owner Simon Property Group provided a hard-hat tour on Wednesday morning of the work still under way. Details are available in the video above.

Huenber declined to cite a specific price for the renovation work. It began in late 2011, and is part of Simon’s plans for improvements to many of its properties. Other aspects of the Fashion Mall's current revivification include new flooring and contemporary glasswork throughout the mall; redesign of all mall entrances; and new soft-seating areas.

  • Way to go, Simon
    I was just telling the little lady that Indy will never be a national laughingstock until it gets a Canadian burrito place. Thank you, Simon. I didn't think it was possible. What's next? A Mexican hockey league?

  1. Those of you yelling to deport them all should at least understand that the law allows minors (if not from a bordering country) to argue for asylum. If you don't like the law, you can petition Congress to change it. But you can't blindly scream that they all need to be deported now, unless you want your government to just decide which laws to follow and which to ignore.

  2. 52,000 children in a country with a population of nearly 300 million is decimal dust or a nano-amount of people that can be easily absorbed. In addition, the flow of children from central American countries is decreasing. BL - the country can easily absorb these children while at the same time trying to discourage more children from coming. There is tension between economic concerns and the values of Judeo-Christian believers. But, I cannot see how the economic argument can stand up against the values of the believers, which most people in this country espouse (but perhaps don't practice). The Governor, who is an alleged religious man and a family man, seems to favor the economic argument; I do not see how his position is tenable under the circumstances. Yes, this is a complicated situation made worse by politics but....these are helpless children without parents and many want to simply "ship" them back to who knows where. Where are our Hoosier hearts? I thought the term Hoosier was synonymous with hospitable.

  3. Illegal aliens. Not undocumented workers (too young anyway). I note that this article never uses the word illegal and calls them immigrants. Being married to a naturalized citizen, these people are criminals and need to be deported as soon as humanly possible. The border needs to be closed NOW.

  4. Send them back NOW.

  5. deport now
