Hereâ€™s what Iâ€™ve come across in Metropolitan Development Commission (MDC) and Indianapolis Historic Preservation Commission (IHPC) filings as of 12/7/11 (click links to read staff reports on these cases):
1. IHPC 12/7/11 – Harry & Izzy’s proposes an all-seasons outdoor seating area adjacent to the recently completed Georgia St. pedestrian walkway. They want to get the seating area in place in time for the Super Bowl but the structure wrapping around the NE corner of Georgia and Illinois would be permanent. Staff recommends approval.
2. IHPC 12/7/11 – A developer proposes reusing the former Riverside Community Corrections facility at 1415 N Pennsylvania for an affordable housing community with 30 apartments. At this point, the developer is only requesting a variance of use to allow apartments on a C-4 zoned site while they wait to learn if they receive HUD tax credits in February. Any alterations to the building or site would necessitate a separate IHPC case. Staff recommends approval.
