Background on the Project Axis Apts. Indy is an $85-million mixed use development that comprises one square block of downtown Indianapolis. The 6-story building features 336 upscale apartments and offers 46,460 square feet of retail space on its first and second levels. According to the developer and owner, Flaherty & Collins, the development appeals to both young professionals and empty nesters who want to be in downtown urban areas that are very walkable. Axis is a short distance from dining, entertainment, shopping and other activities.

The residences boast a mix of in-unit amenities such as soaker tubs, granite countertops, wall-to-ceiling Visions 2500 Series windows from Weather Shield Windows & Doors, and stainless steel appliances. A rooftop gathering area has grills, a bar and outdoor televisions for residents’ enjoyment. The windows’ exteriors in medium bronze and silver anodized painted exteriors, and craftsman bronze exteriors lend to the upscale appearance of Axis Apts.

On the ground level, a 40,000-square-foot Marsh grocery store anchors the retail space. Additional tenants are being courted for the remaining commercial space, with a coffee or ice cream shop being among the desired choices for the street level.

Flaherty & Collins is currently one of the largest mixed-use developers in the Midwest, specializing in luxury urban apartments with retail, parking and other amenities. As a property owner/manager, the company manages 15,500 units across the country.
