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 (see below), scheduled to open summer 2013.
This looks to be a pretty unique and cool set up.
You can check out a few more images from Bush Stadium’s pre-demolition state.
It IS a timely opportunity to send out some unsolicited support for a local organization 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.
A parting shot from earlier days:
Valuing = Supporting
Publishing HI every day is more than just a ’labor of love‘ (though we do love it), but takes hundreds of hours each month to create. If you are entertained, inspired, better informed, feel more connected with Indy or just value what you discover here, please consider becoming a supporting member with a recurring monthly donation.
Or, become a one-time supporter with a single donation in any amount you choose.
