Ironworks at Keystone's Fall Block Party

Ironworks at Keystone, Indianapolis' premier living and retail property located at 2727 E 86th St., hosted its first-ever Fall Block Party on Saturday, October 3rd. In celebration of its one-year anniversary, the North side development offered complimentary family-friendly entertainment, live music, food, beer and more. It was an opportunity to get a sneak peak of forthcoming Indianapolis projects from the developer. 

Ironworks at Keystone, owned by Hendricks Commercial Properties, is a distinct 5-story development that brings even more quality and character to the already prestigious Keystone neighborhood. It features nearly 36,000 square feet of fine dining and shopping, 120 modern residential apartments, and immediate access to The Fashion Mall, Whole Foods, the Keystone offices and the Monon Trail. The first thing I did was to take a tour of the apartment part of the development.

As you can see in the photos below, it's a very nice place. I love that big wooden flag on the wall of the lobby area. It's a great space for a gathering. There is a fitness center that has large windows that give a magnificent view of the area.

Below are photos of the one bedroom model apartment.

One of the employees was kind enough to pose for me in the kitchen.

Next I walked outside and tasted delicious food from the restaurant tenants of Ironworks. Sangiovese Ristorante offered amazing appetizers. I hadn't seen their new location since they moved, so it was nice to take a peek. I recall that their pasta was outstanding. 

I was offered scrumptious sliders from Ruth's Chris Steak House, pulled pork from celebrity chef Michael Symon's B Spot Burgers and cupcakes from The Flying Cupcake. Beer was provided by the Bier Brewery.

Orangetheory Fitness had a colorful booth full of orange loveliness.

I stopped in the beautifully decorated Vogue Nail Spa and liked it so much that I stayed for a manicure and pedicure. I will be returning for more.

And finally, I had a little fun striking a pose with the maniken outside of the Profyle Boutique. 

I'm so glad that I had the opportunity to see Ironworks at Keystone up close. I remember when it was being built. It's a really upscale and fun place to visit!


Ironworks at Keystone is becoming bigger and better than ever. The property has announced two new openings that will truly make the site a one-stop shop: Orangetheory Fitness and G Michael Salon.

Orangetheory Fitness, opening in January 2016, delivers a high-energy workout broken into intervals of cardiovascular and strength training using a variety of equipment including treadmills, water rowers, TRX suspension straps and free weights. Each session is lead by a professional trainer who ensures you are pushing yourself while safely guiding you through the class in a fun group environment where you’ll burn 500-1,000 calories. The innovative program uses the science of heart rate-based training.  Each participant wears a heart rate monitor and their individual performances are projected, in real time, on large screens. Though the grand opening is slated for early 2016, you can sign up now as a Founding Member and enjoy a 15-20 percent discount off retail rates.

G Michael Salon is expected to open in early 2016. The award-winning salon has served clients in the Central Indiana region, including Carmel, Fishers, Noblesville, Westfield, Indianapolis, Greenwood and Zionsville, for more than seven years, and is now relocating to Ironworks. G Michael Salon specializes in all hair types, hair extensions, hair color and correction, ombre color, precision haircutting, conditioning treatments, blowouts, bridal hairstyles, facial waxing services and more. The salon has formerly been a recipient of the following awards from The Indy Channel A-List Awards: BEST Hair Salon, BEST Hair Color and BEST Waxing. They welcome existing and future clients.


  1. The Ironworks looks like a stunning development.

    Apartment blocks like this are very common here in Ireland and the apartment units are very typical (ie compact!) - do Americans like apartment living, I wonder?

  2. Very nice and beautiful!!! It must be nice for the residents to having walking distance to all conveniences. BTW...I think you're ready for the "catwalk" on Project Runway!!!

  3. Not a bad idea, lots of places like that around Sydney, but I like my garden to much to give it up.
