Indy Eleven’s vision for 2025

Yes, we’re getting a new stadium downtown, but what else is in store for the project?

Since 2014, Indy Eleven has been kicking the ball around IUPUI’s Carroll Stadium and Lucas Oil Stadium. By summer 2025, the team could be playing in a stadium of its very own downtown.

The project

Updated renderings were just released for Eleven Park, which will be located in downtown’s southwest quadrant at the former Diamond Chain property. The $1 billion development will not only include a 20,000-seat multipurpose stadium, but also 600 apartments, 205,000 sqft of office space, parking garages, public plazas with green space, a hotel, and 197,000 sqft for retail space.

The project is planned to break ground this May.
