Ground Broken on $7.6M Super Bowl Legacy Project
Community leaders held a groundbreaking ceremony Thursday on a nearly-nixed $7.6 million housing complex being built as part of the 2012 Super Bowl legacy project on the near east side of Indianapolis.
Work on the 33-unit St. Clair Senior Apartments begins just months after the project was nearly halted over a federal lien on the property.
The development at 945 N. Keystone Ave. includes 3,600 square feet of retail and office space.
Katy Brett, Exe. Dir. of Indy-east Asset Development, says the project is scheduled to be completed in fall 2011.
The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services had placed a lien on the site for undisclosed reasons, but removed it after being contacted by U.S. Rep. Andre Carson and project partners.
Indy-east Asset Development is the head agency responsible for housing provisions of the 2012 Super Bowl Legacy Project.
