Tru by Hilton Breaks Ground in Downtown Indianapolis
6-story hotel will have 148 guest rooms and convenient access to downtown Indianapolis and Lucas Oil Stadium, home of the Indianapolis Colts
INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. - MWA, LLC broke ground yesterday on a new Tru by Hilton, a vibrant, energetic, and young-at-heart hotel that will be less than one mile from downtown Indianapolis, within walking distance to Lucas Oil Stadium and several major employers like Eli Lilly and Rolls Royce. The 148-room, 6-story hotel will be located at 601 Russell Avenue in Indianapolis and will be managed by Dora Hospitality. It is expected to be completed by spring 2020 – ideally just in time for next years’ Indy 500 race.
Among the nearly 60 attendees were a roster of high-profile community members and executives who played a crucial part in pushing the project forward and generating support for it, including Bob Schultz, Senior VP of Marketing, Communications, and Events with Downtown Indy, Inc., Ross Raifsnider, VP of Membership Sales with the Indy Chamber, and Ike McCoy, Mayor’s Neighborhood Advocate.
The hotel will be exceptionally located in the heart of Indianapolis, close to a number of high-volume commercial and leisure demand generators. MWA, LLC, the ownership group of the hotel, hopes the project will also be a positive contributor to the revitalization of the “Old Southside” of the city, continuing the flow of growth south from Buckingham Cos’ ambitious CityWay project. Tru by Hilton Indianapolis Downtown will have modern hotel features and urban design utilizing hardwood floors, stylish fixtures, and contemporary artwork throughout, including an artwork wall featuring distinct Indianapolis landmarks.
