GLRPPR Sector Resource: Sustainable Housing in Indy's Smart Growth District
Sustainable Housing in Indy's Smart Growth District
The Near Northside of Indianapolis is home to a new green, affordable housing development. Combining sustainable site design and energy efficiency, 16 Park Apartments (16 Park) is a comprehensive redevelopment of the aging Caravelle Commons affordable housing complex. Completed in June 2013 by Insight Development, the nonprofit development arm of the Indianapolis Housing Agency, 16 Park significantly improves the quality of housing available to low-income households in Indianapolis and contributes to longstanding efforts to revitalize one of the city's main corridors -- 16th Street -- as a mixed-use, pedestrian-friendly urban district.
