Browning reveals design for $17M Broad Ripple project

Broad_Ripple_Browning_rendering_225pxLocal developer Browning Investments is pushing forward with a new rendering (right) for its plans to build a $17 million mixed-use development on land it previously pitched as a potential site for the Broad Ripple parking garage. Provided to Property Lines on Wednesday, the updated rendering features much more courtyard space along the Central Canal, more practical retail space along College Avenue, and a newly designed apartment complex with outdoor patios facing the west. Browning is proposing a mix of 60 to 70 apartments and commercial space on 1.9 acres on the northeast corner of College and the Canal. The development would replace a closed Shell gas station and a handful of older apartment buildings on the site, bordered by College and Carrollton Avenue. Browning is set to present its plans to the Broad Ripple Village Association on Tuesday and at a public hearing to city of Indianapolis officials May 9. Jamie Browning said the firm has the property under contract but declined to discuss further specifics until it presents plans to the city. The architect for the project is Browning Day Mullins Dierdorf Architects. Browning Investments was among several developers vying for the Broad Ripple parking garage project before city leaders ultimately chose Keystone Group. The parking garage opened Tuesday. It’s at the southwest corner of Broad Ripple and College avenues.
