I would hire someone to build a time machine, then I would go back in time and preserve all the downtown buildings.

That's true. But UnionST - Im trying to understand your fascination with ye olde Indy. What was it that inspires you so much about the city in those olden days? I feel the same way in many ways, but you also have to remember that Indy in the 1910s was tearing down buildings left and right that were built in the 1860s...

Its still the same city though
washington street was once where log buildings stood, which were replaced by federal buildings, which were replaced by italianate buildings, which were replaced by early 20th century buildings,
but you make it sound as if they levelled the whole city, just take a lil walk through wholesale and you will know what I find so great about the olde indy,
the architecture being constructed, the taste of urbanism! Though some buildings were replaced, atleast they were replaced by beautiful buildings, while some replaced with more modern, tasteless structures.

Hi! I am a newbie here, I was on the Market site. I live in N.W.Indiana, and visit Indy alot and spend a couple grand downtown yearly. Have floowed the development since the early 80's when I ordered a paperback book on the urban planning of the city. So thanks for this time, and I have enjoyed alot of the posts over the last couple years.

The Indiana Plaza lower part should also be done. That clashes with the rest of the building. How is the 3 mass project coming along after 2 weeks of construction? Nice renderings of that. I think 10 stories is nice, I am sure higher projects will come with demand.

Rathskeller sounds good. Big tables in case we get a flood of attendees from Cincy. ;-)

Indy (19) in the top twenty on Cities Ranked and Rated book. Indy received the Best ranking for any major midwest metro.

other cities in the top 50 from Indiana.

Lafayette (25)
Columbus (33)
Evansville (50)

While I am not the biggest fan of these types of rankings, this one does get a lot of press.

Here is a link to the full list.

why the hell is it called the Indianapolis-carmel metro,
hell might as well throw in brownsburg, avon, fishers, zionesville, etc.
What city adds one of its suburbs to its names? Nothing against carmel, its a nice area, but I dont think it is so amazing it should be put in something like this.
if it was like MP and SP that would be different, but lets compare here
65000, versus over 700'000.

Yes. Prior to Anderson petitioning to be its own MSA, it was the Indianapolis-Anderson MSA. Now, since Carmel is the #2 City in the metro, it gets a nod in the title. If and when Anderson gets grouped back in, it would still be Indianapolis-Carmel metro because Carmel has grown to a larger population than Anderson.

July 7th - Meet/Greet Downtown Indy

Can someone with a comprehensive knowledge of current/proposed development projects compile a list and post? I think it would be good for everyone to give input on what projects he/she would like to see when we meet on the 7th. We can then narrow down the top choices, prepare an agenda, and map out the sites to plan the best tour route.

2000 census: Carmel 37,733- Greenwood 36,037- Anderson 59,734

Obviously there is some flux with these totals over the past 6 years.

The Carmel City website has a population estimate number of 66,000 for 2005.
The City of Fishers has a population estimate number of 52,390 for 2003.

So I would say by the 2010 census both Carmel and Fishers will be larger than Anderson.

Hotel chain moves into Indy

A Cleveland-based developer is set to break ground in August on one of three Cambria Suites it plans for the Indianapolis market.
Ceres Enterprises LLC is planning a 130-room Cambria Suites in Noblesville at Interstate 69’s Exit 10 in the Saxony development. The hotel is slated to open by the fall of 2008.
The company is also in talks to buy ground for two more Cambria Suites—one near the new midfield airport terminal and another downtown, according to Vice President Kimberly Rowell.
The hotels are the first foray into Indiana for the company that has developed, owns and manages several hotels throughout Ohio. The expansion into Indiana is part of a major rollout of Cambria Suites, which has locations near Chicago; Charleston, S.C.; Atlanta; and Tampa and Sarasota, Fla.
Cambria Suites is the new “lifestyle hotel” brand by Choice Hotels. The brand is shooting for a modern, boutique feel but in a funkier, more cost-conscious model appealing to “Generation X” business travelers. Amenities include separate work and living areas in each room, two LCD televisions per room, MP3 jacks and wireless Internet access.
The hotel also includes several marketing tie-ins with brands that are popular with young professionals, Rowell said. The inroom shampoos and lotions will be by Bath and Body Works and food options will include The Cheesecake Factory and a to-go store featuring Wolfgang Puck coffees and foods.
