From 1915 through 1932, the Ford Assembly plant produced almost 200,000 cars and served as a financial anchor for the near east side of Indianapolis. When the plant closed, it sat abandoned for many years. In 2017, TWG Development acquired the property with the goal of redeveloping it to create a work, live and play complex. The new life of the building includes 132 apartments on floors 2-4 of the building and 5,500 square-feet of retail as well as TWG’s new headquarters at street level. Amenities for the building include garage parking and bicycle storage, a fitness center, a resident coffee bar and lounge as well as a rooftop deck featuring a barbecue grilling area, fire pit lounge, putting green, hammock lounge and a fantastic view of the Downtown skyline.

“Communication, creativity, meeting timeliness, meeting institutional expectations; we’re not an easy client. Hitchcock goes out of their way to work with us.”

“Their work comes with a level of empathy with the user to say ‘it’s more than plants. How can this be an uplifting space? How can this invigorate someone?’ That’s different. That’s unique.”
“One of Hitchcock’s strengths is the amount of work they put in when they’re getting to know a community. They show you they really understand the issues your community is considering. They’re very thorough in their approach. It’s clear they’ve done their homework.”
“Hitchcock thinks beyond straight lines and 90-degree angles.”
“Some architects will just say ‘how dare you!’ but Hitchcock encourages changes. Relationships and creativity is what it boils down to—it’s why I like them the best and what sets them apart from others.”
“Hitchcock goes out of their way to make sure they’re responsive, helpful, and doing things that aren’t necessarily their responsibility. They’re just all-around quality. Any project that I do going forward they will always, always be included in my RFP, whether it’s city or suburban.”
“They’ve earned our trust. They listen to us and come back with solutions that really meet our needs. They let you start to dream …”
“They work in a very collaborative manner in discussions and presentations. They make sure you fully understand it. If there are any questions at all, they can help you with it.”
“What keeps coming back to me is their willingness, their ability, and their responsiveness to help manage the situation at hand.”
“With Hitchcock, I felt like they really went above and beyond, and they’re extremely responsive. They take more of a leadership role, which is helpful, especially with a complicated project.”
