Location: more than just the cross-streets

When apartment hunting, it’s important to consider not just the physical location of your prospective home but also the character of the community around you and how nearby retail and other services align with your lifestyle.

The vibe


When exploring new apartments, look at the surrounding neighborhood. If you’re a foodie or a socialite, is it important for you to be able to walk to shopping, dining, and entertainment? If you’re a fitness enthusiast, does the community support an active lifestyle? Where will you buy fresh food and groceries? 

Don’t forget that character is important too! Try to imagine yourself as a part of your new community. Is the neighborhood vibe a good fit? Residents at Wilshaw Apartments enjoy easy access to Speedway trails and parks, dining and nightlife, and the world-famous Indianapolis Motor Speedway.

The drive

Are you looking for a place with convenient access to your family, friends or daily work route? Wilshaw Apartments in Speedway are close to I-465, I-65, and I-74, allowing an easy commute to destinations like Traders Point and Brownsburg. It’s also less than six miles from the heart of downtown Indy.

And if you’re a Chicago transplant, you can easily jump on I-65 for a weekend visit, rather than navigating city traffic from the south or east side of Indianapolis.

The size

Finally, consider whether you prefer to be near all the action or whether a more remote locale is more your style. Wilshaw Apartments offers the best of both worlds: city access with a neighborhood feel, so you don’t have to choose between peaceful, tree-lined streets and the convenience of downtown living.
