The conversion of Indianapolis’s Bush Stadium to loft-style apartments is underway, with apartments expected to be ready for occupancy this summer.
Core Redevelopment and its management company are taking applications for studio, one- and two-bedroom apartments built on the grounds of the former home of Indianapolis Indians (Class AAA; International League). From the Indianapolis Recorder:
“We are very excited to be able to save this landmark while also providing a new option for those who would like the convenience of living in this area,” said Maggie Mallory, property manager for Stadium Lofts, which is owned by Core Redevelopment.
All units include a full size washer and dryer, and optional amenities are available such as modern cherry kitchen cabinets with stainless steel appliances, polished concrete floors, patios and balconies and unique loft floor plans….
“You’ll have the look of suites at the baseball stadium, with balconies overlooking green space that will be 400 feet from where home plate is to the outfield wall,” said John Watson, owner of Core Redevelopment.
Bush Stadium was the home of the Indianapolis Indians through 1996, when the team moved to downtown’s Victory Field. It opened in 1931 as Perry Stadium and was renamed Victory Field in 1942 to honor the American war effort. It was later renamed Bush Stadium in 1967 for Indianapolis native and MLB player Donnie Bush. The old Indianapolis Clowns of the Negro Leagues also played there.
