As many of you may well know, Indianapolis’ historic Bush Stadium, once a mainstay on Indiana Landmarks’ 10 most endangered list, has been saved from total destruction and is currently transforming into the Stadium Lofts (as seen below), scheduled to open this summer.
Now, this isn’t me taking an opportunity to shill for the leasing agency at what looks to be a pretty unique and cool set up, nor is it me stepping on the toes of a feature by Tiffany Benedict Berkson about the Bush Stadium’s pre-demolition state.
It IS a timely opportunity for me to send out some totally unsolicited support for a local organization that is doing some pretty cool things around town, People for Urban Progress. The people responsible for salvaging and repurposing the roof material for the Hoosier Dome also stepped in and saved thousands of stadium seats from Bush. Some, are being repurposed as bus stop benches around town.
Though not currently affiliated with PUP, they are doing some pretty cool stuff. So click here to find out more about the stadium seat sale this weekend and tune in next week for more history, less promotion.
