Yet another downtown hotel project is in the works, joining a growing list of lodging developments slated to add at least 1,000 rooms to the central business district.Shawn Cannon, owner of Tow Yard Brewing at 501 S. Madison Ave., has filed plans with the city to build an eight-story, 152-room hotel with 6,000 square feet of retail on the surface lot north of the craft brewery.The proposal includes 366 parking spaces on the first four floors of the building, with hotel rooms occupying levels five through eight. The street-level retail space would be at the northwest corner of the development, at Madison and South Street, and would extend east along South Street.The parking lot on which the hotel would be built runs diagonally along Madison Avenue and follows South Street east to the Subway restaurant, and bounds South Scioto Street and an Arby’s parking lot. The south end of the parking lot runs along East Henry Street adjacent to the brewery.Cannon's hotel would be built in an L shape starting at South and Madison streets.

More rooms and more parking are great things.  Also, that building looks kind of cool.  And more shops is a good thing, too.

Huh. That's pretty cool.

Granted, I worry about how much a boutique hotel would charge, even during Gen Con, but that's a whole other worry. And it doesn't take away from the fact that it's nice to see Indianapolis growing it's hotel spaces. It's got the potential to be a really nice addition, regardless of how much rooms would go for.
