Live Indy East

We promise to create an economically diverse community by promoting housing redevelopment that embraces existing and new residents. We aim to accomplish this by recapturing vacant housing and developing new and affordable options.

OUR GOAL: 

Affordable Housing & Redevelopment

Englewood Apartments

Existing Homeowners & Renters

Decrease transiency rate and resident turnover by addressing barriers to decent, safe, and affordable housing of existing renters and homeowners.  Deferred maintenance, vacant and blighted properties, and problem rentals undermine community vitality and stability.

New Neighbor Cultivation

Increase homeownership, density & home values and lower vacancy rate, by creating diverse housing opportunities for new neighbors.  A high percentage of vacant and blighted residential properties compel new housing and infill development opportunities.

Multi-Family Housing Opportunities

Increase the population density and level of specialty housing by developing multi-family housing options for families and individuals across the economic spectrum.  This will in turn fuel other economic development.

Live Indy East Map

The Live IndyEast map outlines the area’s assets and potential opportunities for residential living. Black and light pink rectangles show vacant parcels available for development. The map also shows transportation initiatives, like protected bike lanes, IndyGo bus routes, and the planned Blue Line on Washington Street.

Shaded areas mark residential neighborhood opportunities already in place, like Great Places 2020 in Englewood and Twin Aire, as well as the Near Eastside’s Quality of Life Plan.
