Indy is looking for ideas for Twin Aire

The Twin Aire Shopping Center + Drive-In Site are in need of a makeover.

With 40+ acres to work with, the world is Twin Aire’s oyster.

City officials recently did a call-out for ideas on how to redevelop the Twin Aire Shopping Plaza + Twin Aire Drive-In properties, which are looking a little bare compared to the new Commuity Justice Campus, which finally opened in May.

If you haven’t heard of the 28.7-acre drive-in on the south east side, that’s because it ceased operation in 1996. As far as the shopping center goes, it’s currently anchored by Kroger and most of the other shops’ leases are set to expire in 2024.

The direction for the parcels is likely to go in the mixed-use development direction, according to DMD Director Scarlett Andrews. That would include community-based retail, green space + a grocery store.

Though city officials have limited this question to potential developers, we’re curious: how would you transform this site? Tell us those brilliant ideas.
