The Fashion Mall at Keystone- (Indianapolis, IN)

The Fashion Mall at Keystone, better known as "The Fashion Mall", or what I like to call it, "The Keystone", because it sets the standard for exemplary shopping in the Indianapolis area, the mall is the poshest enclosed mall with anchor stores Nordstrom and Saks Fifth Avenue. The mall is situated between Interstate 465/ US-31 and Keystone Avenue and 86th Street. The mall is considered the heart of the Keystone at the Crossing district of shopping, the business, most populated shopping area in upper Indianapolis.

The Fashion Mall is actually two separate sections, both two-stories, linked together by a glass archway called "The Crossing", where you are introduced to the food court at the center entrance and both joining sections of the mall.

Over 40% of the stores in the mall are to companies only location in the state and about 97% of the stores space is occupied.

The mall originally opened in 1973 as a small luxury mall with around 50,000 square feet, and was adjacent to its companion shopping center, called The Bazaar, where people and families ran there own stores. When the center underwent renovations and expansions, The Bazaar was demolished, over the years, many stand alone stores and restaurants were built to fill in the corridor of 86th street to meet up with the gigantic Castleton Square Mall.

The mall now stand at 680,000 square feet in two separate buildings.

The Fashion Mall had many retailers over the years, like Jacobson's, an original anchor, was the only one in the chain to be in Indiana and has since been replaced with Saks Fifth Avenue.

Parisian at The Fashion Mall was one of two in the state, the other was in Circle Centre Mall downtown, was converted to Nordstrom in fall 2008, which is the only store in the chain in Indiana.

The mall will continue to expand as time goes on.

Here are pictures of the mall from December 2013 and November 2014:
