The Indiana Chapter of the NAIOP named Axis as 2015’s “Best Mixed-Use Retail Development.”

The NAIOP awards focus on projects and transactions that exhibit high achievement in the following areas: suitability for the intended use of the occupants, aesthetics, functionality, design creativity, site selection, site setting, response to complexity, economic contribution to community, positive impact to surrounding development or community, and sustainable design/construction components.

“We are honored to receive this award,” said Jim Crossin, Vice President of Development for Flaherty & Collins Properties and lead developer on the Axis project. “NAIOP is a leading advocate for real estate developers and we are certainly thrilled that the organization has recognized Axis as a top project in the mixed-use category.”

Since 1967, NAIOP, the Commercial Real Estate Development Association, has become the leading organization for developers, owners and investors of office, industrial, retail and mixed-use real estate. NAIOP comprises 18,000+ members and provides strong advocacy, education and business opportunities through a powerful North American network.


Axis, which was completed in 2015 and designed by CSO Architects, built by Flaherty & Collins Construction and is managed by Flaherty & Collins Properties, features 336 luxury apartment homes, 430+ space parking garage and a 42,000 square foot urban Marsh grocery.

Axis offers an unsurpassed collection of sensational amenities, creating a new standard for modern urban apartment living in Indianapolis. The project benefits from spectacular 360-degree views of Indianapolis and boasts the finest amenities in all of downtown Indianapolis. 

This is the second time Flaherty & Collins Properties has had a project win the award, as Cosmopolitan on the Canal won the category in 2011.
