Englewood Town Center

Englewood Town Center + PR Mallory District

At the heart of the Englewood neighborhood, the former PR Mallory campus has the potential for redevelopment as a neighborhood town center, and destination along the corridor. Recently announced as one of the first Great Places 2020 locations, this site is prepared to develop as a dynamic neighborhood center of culture, commerce and community.

Anchored by the former PR Mallory factory and campus, this location becomes an anchor for creative urbanism; renovation and reuse of the historic factory building, boiler building, and cafeteria are complemented by new developments to fill out the commercial, residential, educational, and civic life of the district.

Across Washington Street, the East Washington Branch Library is a long-time neighborhood amenity. It opened its doors in 1910, one of the original Carnegie libraries in Indianapolis, and continues to serve the corridor and Near Eastside. With currently one of the highest levels of use in the library system, this location is preparing for a renovation and expansion to fulfill current and future uses and services.

Several existing businesses, and many commercial properties line the corridor, including Tlaolli, Osborn Design + Craft, and Gilpin Glass; a coordinated facade improvement program will assist businesses in addressing storefonts, signage, and lighting to raise the quality of the whole corridor. Above, Tlaolli Tamales and the former Smith & Sons Building have already benefited from facade improvements.
