Krauss comments on importance of dynamic downtown

September 08, 2005

In an article in the Indianapolis Star, columnist John Ketzenberger interviewed John Krauss about the importance of a dynamic Downtown in Indianapolis.

Krauss commented that he has a little test that shows how Downtown's development can raise an area's national profile.

“Think of San Francisco, Newark, Denver and Detroit,'' said Krauss, ''You get an image in your mind's eye of the city center. In the case of San Francisco and Denver, it's probably positive and not so positive for Newark and Detroit. If you'd asked that question of people about Indianapolis 35 years ago, there was no image. You can't compete when there is nothing in people's mind about your city.'"
