dc.description.abstract IF APPROPRIATE AMENITIES ARE MET AND A COHESIVE QUARTER UTILIZING AN EXISTING WAREHOUSE STRUCTURE IS EXTABLISHED, YOUNG PEOPLE WOULD BE MORE APT TO MOVE INTO A DOWNTOWN AREA. MY THOUGHTS ARE THAT ONCE THE YOUNG PEOPLE MOVE DOWNTOWN AND ESTABLISH THEMSELBVES IN A PLEASANT ATMOSPERE THEY WILL FEEL SECURE ENOUGH TO BRING UP A FAMILY.ONE OF THE WAYS I AM TRYING TO ATTRACT THE YOUNG PEOPLE IS BY MAKING IT MORE AFFORDABLE THROUGH SELF-HELP TECHNIQUES, PEOPLE CAN GET INVOLBED IN THE CREATION OF THEIR ENVIRONMENT, LEARN SKILLS TO MAINTAIN IT AND ESTABLISH POSITIVE RELATIONS WITH THEIR NEIGHBORS.THE VEHICLE OR EXISTING STRUCTURE I AM UTILIZING IS A 1918 R.R. FRIEGHT WAREHOUSE. THE CONFIGURATION OF BUILDING AND SITE ALONG WITH THE IMMEDIATE SURROUNDINGS ADDS COMPLEXITY TO THE PROJECT. THE SITE IS IN INDIANAPOLIS WITHIN THE DOWNTOWN CENTER MILE RADIUS, IT IS BOUNDED ON THE NORTH BY A RAILROAD OVERPASS, THE SOUTH A SCRAP METAL YARD, THE WEST VIRGINIA AMENUE AND EAST, EAST STREET. NORTH OF THE SITE A FEW BLOCKS IS MONUMENT CIRCLE AND SOUTH THE SAME DISTANCE IS FLETCHER PLACE A HISTORICAL DISTRICT. I AM GOING TO ATTEMPT TO MAKE A UNIFIED COMMUNITY QUARTER WHICH WILL INITIATE INTERACTION AMONG THE RESIDENTS.
