Indianapolis, Indiana – Keystone Construction will kickoff construction on another Near Eastside Legacy Project. The project, named Clifford Corners, recognizes East 10th Street’s original historic name, “Clifford Avenue.” Clifford Corners is a $7 million, three-level mixed use development with affordable, one and two bedroom apartment rentals; four affordable, owner-occupied two-bedroom condos; and, 12,000 square feet of commercial retail and community space.
The development is located at 3125 E. 10th Street and is situated across the street from the future site of Legacy Plaza, a $650,000 project which will include an outdoor “market” space; urban-appropriate shade trees; an outdoor stage; and an echo friendly rain garden.
The overall design character of the building reflects the economic redevelopment energy of the East 10th Street Business District. A combination of contrasting colors and textures will reinforce the exciting positive changes that are ongoing. Exterior features include warm brick, decorative block, stone trim and cementitious wood fiber over a thermally efficient exterior envelope. The roof utilizes an energy conscientious membrane and insulation system.
The building structure includes wood framing with insulated masonry foundation walls and poured-concrete footings. Exterior openings include energy-efficient vinyl and aluminum frame systems with high-performance glazing. Areas of tinted, colored exterior glazing will add visual interest. The interior design is consistent with contemporary-style floor plans, and includes innovative angled walls, solid wood cabinetry and high-quality finishes.
The project is a key component of the 2012 Indianapolis Super Bowl Near Eastside Legacy Project and was developed by East 10th Street Civic Association and Riley Area Development.
Jason Ellis, Director of Construction for Keystone, said, “The Legacy projects are very special project for me personally and for our company. These projects will truly represent the legacy of the 2012 Indianapolis Super Bowl for many decades to come. I’m honored that Keystone could be a part of it.”
Just recently, Keystone completed construction on St. Clair Apartments, another Legacy project on East 10th Street. St. Clair is a 30,000 square foot structure that includes 33 senior living apartments and features 3,600 square feet of ground floor retail space. The project was completed in approximately 11 months.

About the 2012 Indianapolis Super Bowl Near Eastside Legacy Project
In the past, the NFL provided each Super Bowl host city with $1 million to be matched locally to renovate, expand or build a youth center to be a lasting legacy of the impact the big game has on the community. But with Indianapolis’ history of innovation and dreaming big, the 2012 Indianapolis Super Bowl Host Committee had a much broader vision. Rather than a single building or project, Indianapolis’ Super Bowl Legacy Project would include an entire section of the city—21 neighborhoods known as the “Near Eastside.” Near Eastside residents were already hard at work on their quality of life plan to transform their declining community to be a model for neighborhood revitalization across the city.
Thanks to the ongoing efforts of the residents and the added momentum gained from the Legacy Project, which has attracted numerous public and private partners, more than $154 million in public and private funds is being invested in revitalizing Indianapolis’ Near Eastside.
The East 10th Street Civic Association, Indy-east Asset Development, the John H. Boner Community Center, Near Eastside Community Organization (NESCO) and the Englewood Community Development Corporation are the lead agencies working with the Super Bowl Host Committee and numerous public and private partners to create a lasting legacy on four fronts: 1) Chase Near Eastside Legacy Center and Youth Education Town (Family education, health and fitness); 2) Mixed-Income Housing Development and Redevelopment; 3) Business and Economic Development, and Infrastructure Improvements; and 4) Special Events and Promotions.
