More Updates:

Walking on 10th st today and noticed from the bus stops that the Near Eastside Orbitor cancelled it's service after 12/31/10.

Looks like they are starting a new phase of Canal Gardens on MLK South of 16th. I am wondering if they will change the original design due to the fact that few, if any of the condos sold and it has become a rental community?

Jobs moving back into the core of the city instead of going the other way around.

Indianapolis -- MZD advertising agency will move from Woodfield Crossing on the Northeastside to leased space at 120 E. Vermont St. The vacant 10,000-square-foot building is co-owned by Jeremy Hamilton, who ran his now-defunct Dine magazine out of it. MZD will take over Dine's cookbook projects, MZD Chairman and CEO Allan Zukerman said. (Star report)

Also

Indianapolis -- A nonprofit agency will renovate two apartment buildings in the 3700 block of North Meridian Street to serve the homeless and other clients. The $9 million update of the Schuyler and Meridian Mark apartments will include new windows, kitchens and baths, plus new electrical and plumbing systems. Laundry, computer and fitness rooms will be added. Reopening is set for March 2012, said general contractor and property manager Herman & Kittle Properties of Indianapolis. Developer Bethlehem House Residence also serves people with substance abuse problems and HIV/AIDS. The Indiana Housing and Community Development Authority has awarded federal low-income housing tax credits for the project. (Star report)

The Canal Gardens addition was approved by the MDC in November. This phase is explicitly apartments and the design is more than a little bit blah:

Nah, not Cory. I just like to troll through the Department of Metropolitan Development documents as they get released. There's a lot of tedious stuff in there, but everything has to go through them.

This wasn't a very long exile. MZD was at 18th & Meridian for decades until four or five years ago, in a building owned by the "M" in MZD.

Certainly seems like a step down to move from Woodfield to a dumpy little one-story on a side street, but I guess the ad-agency business has been pretty battered by the decline in print, the rise in Internet ads and the recession. Pearson, Crahan & Fletcher dissolved after being one of the city's leading agencies for 25 years.

I can only imagine!

And very good news about the Trail Side. Sounds like it should be done by the end of the year.

I just hope that they dont close down the trail to build this thing. After being under construction for so long in that area, its nice to be able to ride through there. Additionally, I hope they dont screw up the trail itself with demolition.

details... details...

And I'm hoping for every sidewalk in town to be cleared today, but that won't happen either.

Just curious.... Was the California Pizza kitchen in the circle center food court from 95 to 98 time frame? It was on the side of the court close to Washington street. Or what was that restaurant if not....

No. I think that was called Carlifornia Cafe and was unrelated to the C P K.

Does anyone know the status of the Consolidated Building? It is one of my favorite buildings downtown and I hate to see it rot.

Also, does anyone know the status of the banking center apartments?

Im happy that trailside was approved but it looks like the same 3-5 story building is popping up on every corner now. Would it kill them to add a little variety to the designs?
