INDY STAR REPORTS “The Delaware Apts to add 100 new jobs to Fall Creek Place!”

A new mixed-use development slated to open near the end of the summer is poised to bring more than 100 new jobs to Fall Creek Place, continuing a revitalization effort north of Downtown nearly 20 years in the making.

The $10 million project, called The Delaware, is taking shape at the corner of East 22nd and Delaware streets and remains on track for a late August debut.

Once complete, the four-story building will house 47 apartments on the upper levels and three businesses on the ground floor.

Longbranch, an Asian cuisine/craft cocktail restaurant from the owners of Shoefly Public House, will open on the building’s corner. It will be joined by Mashcraft Brewery and Renew Dental Arts.

Officials announced late last week that the trio of businesses will bring more than 100 new jobs to the area. Developers say The Delaware is the largest and the first mixed-use building to be built in what could be considered the “outer periphery” of Downtown.

“The Fall Creek Neighborhood has been referred to as a model for urban revitalization. But until this point the redevelopment efforts have focused mainly on residential and some smaller, scattered commercial development,” Elliot Lewis, developer and CEO of Cedarview Management, said in a statement.

Cedarview officials said The Delaware is the latest phase of a residential revitalization in the Fall Creek and Herron-Morton neighborhoods that began in 1998 with a $4 million Department of Housing and Urban Development grant.

That was when the Fall Creek Place Home Ownership Zone was established to tackle crime, abandoned housing and vacant lots in the area bordered by Fall Creek to the north and the Herron-Morton historic district to the south, according to IndyStar archives.

With help from the grant, the city began to sponsor construction of new homes in the area, along with renovation of older ones. City officials also found a number of partnerships, including some with organizations not traditionally concentrated on housing.

Officials said the effort was a success in transforming the area formerly known as “Dodge City” into a modern, urban environment with more than 400 new or renovated homes.

Avery Jacobs, a resident who lives on Alabama Street near the development, said he is looking forward to The Delaware’s debut.

He thinks it’s another big step for Fall Creek Place, and he believes that it will help draw attention to all of the other progress made in the neighborhood over the years.

“I think it’ll be great for this whole intersection and for everyone living here,” he said. “New restaurants and more jobs always bring excitement, and that’s good for the whole city.”

Officials said The Delaware will offer studio, one-bedroom and two-bedroom apartments ranging from $1,100 to $2,200 per month.

Residents will receive reserved gated garage parking, controlled access entry, a resident-only fitness center and a rooftop sky lounge with grilling stations.
