Indy Rama Still Celebrates Downtown Living

Introducing: Indy Rama Virtual Tours!

There isn’t an organization or industry that hasn’t been affected by the coronavirus pandemic by now, and BAGI is no different.

But our community is a resilient bunch. They’ve faced financial crises and economic uncertainty in the market before, fighting through and bouncing back. Despite the multitude of changes and challenges our homebuilders, vendors and potential homebuyers are facing, a lot of positive things are happening in our industry and right now remains a great time to buy a home.

At BAGI we had been eagerly anticipating this month’s First Internet Bank Indy Rama, with the area’s premier downtown home show set to spotlight some of the best lifestyle options our city has to offer. While we’ve unfortunately had to cancel the event’s in-person activities, we’re excited to announce our ability to bring this year’s Indy Rama directly to the public through a series of virtual tours!

Limitations may remain in place concerning public gatherings for some time, but now there’s no barrier of entry for experiencing this year’s incredible Indy Rama show homes. We’ve heard from many who, as they’re realizing they hate quarantining in their own homes, want to start looking for other options. This year’s Indy Rama audible brings our 2020 collection of homes directly to you, free and easily accessible for all.


Four beautiful homes. Four innovative builders. Three thriving neighborhoods. And countless opportunities to be inspired and apply the latest design trends, exciting features and new technologies into your next downtown dream home.


This year’s builders have crafted beautifully designed, built, decorated and landscaped custom homes for you to discover, each remarkably showcasing everything downtown living has to offer. As you virtually visit each of their latest signature creations, feel more than welcome to contact the homebuilders directly with any questions on their designs or to discuss their homes, products, services and opportunities further.

H•E Homes

The H•E Homes team is compiled of downtown Indy housing experts, having built exclusively in the area for almost a decade. With an experience centered around the three-word creed “Easy, efficient, enjoyable,” H•E Homes was founded on the simple idea that the homebuilding process should be fun, streamlined and designed to make your life as easy as possible. Blending modern stylings with timeless designs, clients utilize a patented homeowner portal app to make selection decisions and receive a guaranteed move-in date six months from the day they break ground.

Peapod Homes

One of the area’s newest homebuilders, Peapod Homes is committed to urban revitalization opportunities with a focus on empty lots to grow something new and meaningful on previously blank slates. Infusing open floorplans and modern conveniences with the classic styles that first gave historic Indy neighborhoods their prominent, timeless feel, Peapod prioritizes responsible and sustainable building that maintains the traditional architecture, character and charm of the community.

Compendium Group

Just as a “compendium” by definition is a collection of things gathered together and presented as a whole, Compendium Group pools people, ideas and resources for a project philosophy valuing transparency, communication and reliability throughout the process. BAGI’s 2018 Builder of the Year, the Compendium leadership have completed hundreds of projects throughout downtown Indy and surrounding areas.

Onyx + Eas

Onyx + East only builds in emerging markets and feels strongly about making a difference within urban communities, taking pride in creating a meaningful and definitive chapter in residents’ lives. Onyx + East partners benefit from conscious efforts on the company’s behalf to consider the lifestyles and experiences available from nearby neighborhood offerings. Through creativity, innovation and sustainability, Onyx + East strives to develop communities that change how residents work, play and experience daily living.


Whether you’re looking for a first home or a forever home, the downtown neighborhoods selected by this year’s Indy Rama builders attract young couples, empty-nesters, growing families and “urban pioneers” alike.

While our virtual tours of this year’s homes may struggle to convey the atmosphere and feel of the surrounding community, our builders would love the opportunity to share more about their experiences in the area and want homebuyers can expect from these fast-growing neighborhoods.

Kennedy King

Nestled between 20th Street and 16th Street to the north and south, and the Monon Trail and Central Ave. to the east and west, Kennedy King features both new homes and historic ones dating back to the late 1800s. One of the city’s fastest-growing communities, it’s home to beautiful Martin Luther King Memorial Park as well as popular local breweries and restaurants.

Mapleton-Fall Creek

Conveniently located between downtown and Broad Ripple, Mapleton-Fall Creek is bounded by 38th Street to the north, Meridian Street to the west and Fall Creek Parkway along its southwest edge. The Fall Creek Greenway provides residents easy access by foot or bike from the historic neighborhood to dining, shopping and entertainment options across the city.

North Meridian

Between Roanoke Street and Talbott Street, south of I-65 and anchored by the Indiana War Memorial, North Meridian residents can enjoy five blocks of majestic green space as well as the Indianapolis Cultural Trail. The area’s historic architecture has been beautifully preserved, making North Meridian one of downtown Indy’s residential treasures.

Although we’ve been forced to do it a little differently this year, we can’t wait to share these incredible communities and remarkable builders with Indy Rama “attendees.” Let us bring Indy Rama to you so you can discover the latest exciting opportunities for downtown living.
