The controversial development proposed for Broad Ripple received initial approval at a hearing last Thursday. The mixed-use development could include an apartment complex and grocery store. The proposed building has strong opposition from nearby business owners and residents, who are concerned with the size, saying it does not fit in with the unique village-theme look that Broad Ripple is known for.

Others say it will be a much needed improvement, attracting new residents to the area. The building would cover about 2 acres, replacing the old Shell gas station and a decades-old apartment structure.

The proposal still has to go to the full Metropolitan Development Board before any decision is finalized.

What’s your take? Yay or nay for the new Broad Ripple Development?
