Eyewitness News got a first look Thursday night into a piece of Indianapolis history that now has a new life.

Friends of Indiana Landmarks got a sneak peek at the Stadium Lofts project at the old Bush Stadium on West 16th Street. The 138 apartments open August 1.

But not everyone visits to rent.

"They have memories about Bush Stadium. This was the first time I went to a baseball game, might have been the first time they had a part-time job in the summer to do grounds. So they tell a lot of stories," said Maggie LaRoche.

"I want to live on home plate. I want to walk out on my first floor patio door and see home plate," said Michael Cox.

More than 100 of the units are already rented, ranging from $699 to almost $1,500 a month.
