The Shelton Historic Picture


The Shelton was erected in 1925 by famed developer F. Rolland Buck and the Foster Engineering Company, This historic building was the first of four large downtown apartment buildings in Indianapolis. Charles B. Foster worked with Frank Lloyd Wright prior to moving to Indianapolis in 1919 and that design collaboration is evident in the unique cascading ceilings you'll see throughout the units. The 'unit slab construction' design concept was years ahead of its time and has proved itself in the timeless structural integrity of this residence you will be proud to call home.

Shelton Development Group will graciously transform this historic property into sixteen, one and two bedroom, intelligently designed and well appointed condominium units. Every resident will unquestionably appreciate the unparalleled rigidity of the foundation upon which their modern unit has been constructed. Enjoy all the comforts of today coupled with the durability and longevity of this profound structure.

Homebuyer Tax Credit Opportunities
The Worker, Homeownership, and Business Assistance Act of 2009 extends the deadline for qualifying home purchases from Nov. 30, 2009, to April 30, 2010. Additionally, if a buyer enters into a binding contract by April 30, 2010, the buyer has until June 30, 2010, to settle on the purchase.

The maximum credit amount remains at $8,000 for a first-time homebuyer –– that is, a buyer who has not owned a primary residence during the three years up to the date of purchase.

But the new law also provides a “long-time resident” credit of up to $6,500 to others who do not qualify as “first-time homebuyers.” To qualify this way, a buyer must have owned and used the same home as a principal or primary residence for at least five consecutive years of the eight-year period ending on the date of purchase of a new home as a primary residence.
