CityWay project taking shape on Indianapolis near southeast side
One of the city's most modern residential and commercial projects is taking shape near Bankers Life Fieldhouse and Eli Lilly.
CityWay is an $155 million, 600,000-square-foot project is designed to create an urban neighborhood in the southeast section of downtown Indianapolis.
Scott Travis, Buckingham Corp., says the mixed use development will be a place to live, work and play.
"I think when we started the planning process, even four years ago, the vision for what this could be as a new neighborhood that could connect four of our most important corporate campuses to downtown, also Fletcher Place and Fountain Square. There's been a void here for 130 years," said Travis.
"It's been basically a parking lot for train cars and automobiles for 120 of those years," he said, calling the ten-acre parcel of downtown Indianapolis one of the most "under-utilized."
Travis says two things set the project apart.
"We strove from the beginning to create a new neighborhood," he said. Travis also pointed out it's also the first time a mixed-use development in the city had more than two uses - there's a hotel, residential, a new YMCA and retail.
