In Pictures: Brickyard moving away from suburban style developments

Framing for Element31, a 208-unit apartment development at 1245 Brickyard Road, is underway.  The apartments are framed up to the second of what will be four floors.  Element31 wraps around the Brickyard Office Tower, replacing what was originally an aging parking structure.  The apartments and office tower are directly across from Brickyard Plaza, a suburban-style shopping center that features mostly discount retail and a Harmon’s grocery store.   Element31 developers maximized lot space by building right up to the office tower and building the units above a subterranean parking structure.

There is ample surface parking surrounding the Brickyard Plaza.  Hopefully the owners of the plaza will be inspired to rethink the suburban style plaza and develop the area to fit the density created by having a seven-story office tower and four-story apartment building across from their property.
