About Tarkington Tower
Should Tarkington Tower Be Your Next Home?
Located in the heart of Indianapolis, just north of the Indianapolis Children’s Museum, Tarkington Tower was the city’s first high-rise condo. To this day, the condos in Tarkington Tower remain part of the heart and soul of the Indianapolis community.
What’s Special About Tarkington Tower, Anyhow?
Located at 4000 North Meridian Street, the historic 1968 building is 16 stories tall and has balconies that afford a breathtaking view of downtown Indianapolis. Residents enjoy easy access to local restaurants and shopping in a suburban setting while being only a few miles away from the center of the city. An adjacent park offers a handy place to escape to the outdoors, with picnic benches, play areas and tennis courts.
Many of the units have been renovated and updated to include all the modern amenities and features that you’d expect to see in luxury buildings at a much higher price — although you can still find a few units that are just waiting for you to strip them down and give them your personal flair. You can also find large, magnificent units that have been made by combining two or more smaller ones.
In addition, long-term residents love Tarkington Tower. They say that the building’s homeowners association (HOA) does an excellent job managing the fees it collects, and making sure that the property is well-maintained and secure. One of the big appeals of Tarkington Tower, for many residents, is the fact that the building is financially stable. The HOA keeps a healthy reserve fund and uses a 10-year plan to stay ahead of upgrades and repairs. There are never any unpleasant surprises waiting to disrupt the residents’ lives. Tarkington Tower is also a good place to consider if you are considering downsizing. Downsizing isn’t just for empty nesters, it’s also for individuals, couples, or families looking to simplify their life.
Named after the Pulitzer Prize-winning author Booth Tarkington, the building boasts individual homes with a wide range of price-points. Some units are valued over $800,000 due to high-end refurbishments, while others are priced much more modestly at less than $100,000 — which means there is something at Tarkington Tower for everyone.
If you have kids, grandkids, or children in your life, the Tarkington Park is a perfect place to spend time outside. The large park is located at 45 W 40th Street, Indianapolis, IN 46208 and features an indoor cafe, green space, a dog friendly area, plenty of benches for seating, and rubber/turf surfaces for toddlers. The rubber/turf is a nice addition for the little ones that tend to fall a bit more often than others. I’ve included a short video from Indy with Kids on Tarkington Park and here’s a park map for Indy Parks.
What Kind of Amenities Do the Condos Have?
While location and price are both important, the real value of condominium life can be found in the amenities that a building can offer and the added convenience they provide residents. When you buy a condo, you don’t just buy your living space, you buy everything that comes with it, including lifestyle.
Tarkington Tower is no slouch in this regard. Aside from its vibrant location, graceful exterior, the bird’s eye view and well-maintained grounds, the building offers some unique and alluring features to its residents, including:
- A private pool that is surrounded (and screened away from the world) by greenery
- A well-maintained exercise facility that makes staying in shape convenient and inexpensive
- Recently updated common areas and a well-maintained building
- A lobby and meeting rooms that can be used by residents for events
- A party area, including a full kitchen that encourages social gatherings
- Guest rooms that can be rented by owners on behalf of their visitors
- An attached parking garage so that you never have to worry about either finding a parking space or inclement weather
- All of the security that comes along with living in a high-rise, including a 24-hour door staff that is there to protect access to the building and ensure resident safety
- A nearby “bark park” where you can take your favorite pet pooch for a run or a walk
