This is not Chicago

On the banks of Fall Creek stand a set of solidly built brick apartments. They are proud and prominent, yet little known, due to the fact that the closest thoroughfare is the one-way northbound Illinois Street. Another factor that keeps these gems somewhat anonymous is that the most obvious way to reach them by vehicle is from east via Meridian Street. The 5 apartments are neighbors with a charming house, featured in the second picture in the photo gallery.

Final note: they are looking for tenants if anyone is interested.

  • Someday, those buildings might be right on the Fall Creek Trail!
    They are perfect for Ivy Tech students (shorter walking distance than some of the parking lots) or workers at Clarian/Methodist. Soon there will be a Dunkin Donuts & Ice Cream shop as well as a grocery within a block. Little-known Barton Park is just a block west, and it offers a riverbank environment similar to Holliday Park with a thick mature tree canopy. George Kessler Park and a Fall Creek Trail section are also a block east. The location is about as well-served by IndyGo as any place in Indianapolis outside of the downtown loop. Soon, there will be bike lanes on Illinois and Capitol, too.
    Gee, you’d think I get paid to sell the area’s benefits. 🙂

  • Heck, it’s even close enough for IUPUI students to bike to school.

    I know that on Meridian north of Fall Creek and south of 16th Street there’s a bunch of apartment complexes that are trying to bill themselves as affordable housing for students. I’m actually impressed how much the region thereabouts is pushing itself as a student-friendly area. It makes sense — it’s on the hot path directly in between Broad Ripple and downtown.
