Midtown Anchor Coalition
About the MAC
Six of Indianapolis’ oldest and most important anchor institutions located in the Midtown region, with their community partners, comprise the Midtown Anchor Coalition: Butler University, Butler-Tarkington Neighborhood Association, Christian Theological Seminary, Citizens Energy Group, Crown Hill Heritage Foundation, Newfields (Indianapolis Museum of Art), International School of Indiana, and Midtown Indy.
This Coalition shares a commitment to enhancing the collective assets of Midtown as a premier destination to live, work, visit and learn in the Central Indiana Region.
Together, these organizations employ over 2,000 people, own 1,100 acres of land and over three million square feet of facilities, spend over $117 million annually on goods and services, and attract 1.1 million visitors annually.
The MAC plan and implementation strategy optimizes long-term investment and shared value between the anchor institutions, the City of Indianapolis and the Central Indiana region. In the past 5 years, MAC institutions have invested over $84 million in Midtown, with plans for an additional $219 million over the next 10 years.
The MAC’s six areas of strategic focus are:
- Safety and Security
- Attraction and Identity
- Collaboration and Engagement
- Housing and Neighborhood
- Connectivity and Infrastructure
