INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) – A proposal to redevelop the closed Macy’s location at the Glendale Town Center has been announced.
The building has been vacant since April 1.
The developers that are behind the plan, Kite Realty and Milhaus, say it is an area that is full of opportunity.
“We are excited for the future of Glendale Town Center, and look forward to partnering with MILHAUS and the Glendale community to strengthen a neighborhood landmark with the proposed redevelopment,” Mark Jenkins, Senior Vice President, Development, Kite Realty Group said.
Residents said they are eager to hear the proposal that would revamp a part of Indy’s north side.
“I’m really excited because I was wondering what they were going to do with this space, and I’m hoping I can shop over there and it appeals to me as a shopper,” said resident Melony Boyd.
“I just hope it gets popping soon, just have all the young people come and enjoy it and just get everybody settled, get more apartments, more spacing for everybody. I think it’s an amazing idea,” added resident Sydney Ragsdale.
The Glendale Town Center Project calls for new retail to replace the vacant Macy’s location, four to six tenants planned for the ‘Target Level’ space, and parking lots on Rural St. to be replaced with 265 to 275 market-rate apartments.
If zoning changes are approved, the construction is expected to begin this fall. The area is currently zoned C4, which allows for shopping mall development. The desired zoning is D-P, a planned unit development district.
