Wilshaw is a mixed-use project directly across from the Indianapolis Motor Speedway. The project sits adjacent to the newly renovated “Legends Plaza” on the corner of 16th and Main Streets at the most prominent location in the quickly growing downtown Speedway corridor. In partnership with Scannell Properties, Loftus Robinson is developing a 150-room, full-service hotel, 90 luxury apartments, and 14,000 SF of retail space. Construction with Shiel Sexton will begin in 2017 with project occupancy in Summer 2018.
The viability of a quality hotel in downtown Speedway extends well beyond large capacity events at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway. Wilshaw will cater to travelers visiting nearby destinations including Allison Transmission, Praxair, IUPUI, IU Health, Rolls-Royce, and Eskenazi Hospital. This location in Speedway is also well-suited to west loop business travelers and large capacity events in downtown Indianapolis. Patrons can walk to a variety of amenities on Main Street including Speedway Indoor Karting, Big Woods Brewing Company, Daredevil Brewery, the Foyt Wine Vault, the Indianapolis Motor Speedway Museum, and many other local restaurants.
