Getting any development in Northeast is a pretty big deal however. So I agree that it is nothing special, but the fact it is being proposed is pretty neat.
I agree. This update is a significant improvement on the previous proposal. It's built up to the street, includes firefighter memorial, has street facing patio space, and is mixed-use with living space above commercial. Seems to be a big win for this block and neighborhood.

Sure, Arterra and Reverb are neat, but the corner of Indy/Prospect isn't the Crossroads, and these won't be top-of-market rentals. IMO this development and the recent PH Arts Block are solid additions to the streetscape in a hood that can use the continued positive momentum.

I would like a 4-story building, but I would be happy with three. This is a prominent corner near a drug store, grocery, dollar store, Samuel Rogers Health Center, churches, and on a major transit route. This is an ideal location to create housing for people who don't drive any longer, or own a car. This should be a TOD project. Isn't Independence Avenue the second busiest transit route in the City?

Brinshore Development is putting up a 4-story building at 8th and Paseo, and Pendleton ArtsBlock is 4-stories as well.

Isn't this parcel in an opportunity zone? I would think a bigger developer could get financing for a larger TOD project.
