Keystone at the Crossing is an upscale business and shopping district located in northern Indianapolis at the intersection of East 86th Street and North Keystone Avenue (formerly known as State Road 431). The Fashion Mall is considered the heart of the district.

The Fashion Mall[edit]

The Fashion Mall is the anchor retail center of this large mixed-use development which forms the core of this Far Northside neighborhood of Indianapolis. Sometimes the area is called Keystone/Clearwater, which refers to the large neighboring Clearwater Crossing mixed-use development named after the nearby Lake Clearwater. The Fashion Mall had its original incarnation in the early 1970s as a small luxury mall of 50,000 square feet (4,600 m2). The Fashion Mall was adjacent to its companion shopping center called The Bazaar, a building of labyrinthine corridors housing family-run stores. The Fashion Mall underwent several renovations and expansions over the years, and its neighbor the Bazaar was eventually demolished to make way for the growing shopping center. Over the years, numerous retail centers and stand-alone restaurants have been built both in the mixed-use development where the Fashion Mall is located and all along the 86th Street corridor. The Fashion Mall/Clearwater Crossing area now provides a continuous retail corridor which merges with the gigantic Castleton Square Mall shopping area located almost 3 miles (4.8 km) to the east. The Fashion Mall has become a regional high-end shopping destination, standing two stories high and covering 680,000 square feet (63,000 m2) in two separate buildings. The buildings are connected by a glass archway called "The Crossing" which served as the complex's food court until renovations in 2011-2012. The food court was moved to new space immediately to the west and The Crossing was turned into additional retail. [1] The largest stores in the mall are Nordstrom and Saks Fifth Avenue. Crate & Barrel opened in late 2005, and Tiffany & Co. opened in 2006. There are also two Starbucks stores—one a corporate-owned store, and the other, located in the Keystone Arts Cinema, controlled by the theater itself. The mall had $586 of sales per square foot in 2005. [2].

The Fashion Mall is surrounded by a large mixed-use development consisting of several midrise office buildings (the tallest rises 18 stories), hotels, and stand-alone restaurants. Companion retail centers and several apartments and condominiums adjoin the Fashion Mall property.
