Farewell, Market Square Arena Parking Lots

The buzz behind the 2 major projects on the former Market Square Arena parking lots has built to a point to where the only question appears to be the date for groundbreaking. Thus, it is appropriate to bid a farewell to some of the worst parking lots in Indy. These projects will get us closer to the achievable goal of ridding the mile square of massive lots.

I’ve walked down Market Street on a too-narrow sidewalk almost every day for these past 15 years, wondering if the time would ever come that it would be anything other than asphalt. I believe the sidewalk will be widened, and Market Street, which is wider than it needs to be for 2 blocks, will also undergo a much needed streetscape enhancement along with these developments. Much more remains to be done in this area, but this is a big step for the fledgling Market East district.
