Given the continuing growth of downtown, Newell sees information channels like this becoming increasingly useful. He cites more pedestrian-friendly infrastructure like the Cultural Trail and Complete Street initiatives, as well as a new IndyGo bust transit center expected to open in a couple of years, as proof that an increasing number of central Indiana residents are coming downtown for more than just work.
"Little things like that are really helping to improve downtown and Greater Indianapolis as a whole," Newell said. "There are a lot of great things to be excited about."
