Progress continues on the $135 million, second phase of the CityWay development in downtown Indianapolis. CityWay 2.0 will include more than 400 additional apartments in a mixed-use community that will consist of a 13-story tower, a pair of five-story buildings and three four-story buildings. Indianapolis-based Buckingham Companies is leading the project, which is located near the Eli Lilly and Co. campus and Bankers Life Fieldhouse.

Bargersville-based Taxman Brewing Co. is renovating a mid-1800s-era livery building into a gastropub and beer garden and co-owner Leah Huelsebusch says CityWay is "the ideal place" for expansion. "We're excited to have more of a central location. I think there's a lot of tourists coming into Indianapolis, as well as people coming out for the Pacers games and to see the Colts play and it'll be a great opportunity for people to have somewhere to go for a drink and for dinner before and after, as well as concerts," Huelsebusch said, adding it will be a "central hub for our business."

Taxman's investment plans come in at just under $1 million, Huelsebusch told Inside INdiana Business Reporter Mary-Rachel Redman and will include construction of additional space, room for 200 and 3,000 square-feet of patio space. Construction on Taxman's project is set to be complete in the fall of next year. In addition to Taxman's Johnson County headquarters, it has a taproom in Fortville.

"CityWay truly is a live/work/play destination within the city of Indianapolis," said Buckingham Group Vice President of Production Operations Ryan Gallmeyer. "It's been transformative for this quadrant of downtown and brought a lot of ancillary economic development."

CityWay first opened in 2012.

    • Taking Hyper-Growth and ROI in Key Sectors to The Next Level

      The Governor and our Legislature have already invested in programs that are delivering over 100X returns to Hoosiers. Prior efforts of Governor Eric Holcomb and the Indiana General Assembly to invest in our workforce have already positively impacted the lives of many Hoosiers, while building upon a solid foundation for economic growth. The 2019 General Assembly has the opportunity to leverage this to achieve exponential growth for Indiana.
