Knowing my luck, I will find a little Tiki while walking around like Bobby Brady did in Hawaii.

Oh wow, thanks for that!

A nice mass of residential has developed over there. It would be nice to see a grocer go in that retail space just recently completed in that rehabed structure.

Good luck. Grocers scare downtown residents for some reason.

What's the story with the brick building on the corner north of the cosmo? Is it being redone or something?
That lot between the old house and Cosmo needs to be filled.
Dense, very dense. Me likey.

People live there. It's not being redone as far as I know.

Yeah, that's a small problem I have with this project. Given the relatively large parking garage at the center of the Cosmo and the fact that some of it is even for public use, it always seemed to me that F&C should have been able to negotiate parking spaces for the Indiana History Center as part of a purchase of their lot. Oh well.

My goal is to try to get out and take some pictures this weekend. I live across the canal from this project -- I've been seriously slacking!

Its a nice old apartment building that has been there for decades. Through good times, not so good times, bad times, improving times, and now much better times - in terms of the condition of the surrounding neighborhood. The rent probably isn't too high -- so its nice for the people that live there that they can continue living there on fixed incomes. Its "potential" is fine just the way it is. I definitely think it would be rotten for someone to try to move the people out -"fix it up" to its "potential" and then double the rent so some yuppies can move in. Its mostly middle aged and elderly black people that live there. It used to be in the heart of the city's black community - just off Indiana Avenue. The residents have been there for a long time - through good and bad. It would be terrible if gentrification would be the thing that finally forced them out of their neighborhood. Sorry if I went a little over board in response to your comment - but it just aggravates me when people think every older building is no good unless its "fixed up". There are plenty of parking lots in this neighborhood where new residential units could be put in. Developers should fill those up with new housing before contemplating taking over a perfectly good, existing building full of people.

I'm all for keeping the original residence(unless it is like a bunch of druggies or something).
Don't worry, I was thinking more of facade work.

The other small brick building across the street from it has some potential first floor retail space. I think they're all painted up right now, but I'm pretty sure it has some large glass bay windows and street entrances.

If we're thinking of the same place, AJ's Lounge and the leasing office for those apartments are already in the first floor spaces.

I figured there was some sort of business there already. I guess I should've said that I'm hoping the redevelopment of the area will put a little incentive in the landlords laps to spruce up those particular buildings.

The 1-story building on the corner? Yeah, but I'd mark it more as a 'tear down' and build a denser structure.

No, that's where Mo-Jo's is. I'm talking about the 3-story building north of that.

This is turning out pretty good. I really hope the apartment building progresses to full boom. Maybe with the just announced Buckingham project, Library Square....
