The Nature Conservancy broke ground Thursday for its new Indiana headquarters. The organization still needs to raise most of the $4.4 million cost of the building, but a "significant" contribution from the Efroymson Family Fund means construction can begin. The building will be called the Efroymson Conservation Center. The group currently has 30 employees and rents 8,000 square feet in the Harrison Center for the Arts at 1505 N. Delaware St. The new building is planned for 620 E. Ohio St. The full story is here
Also today, a couple of restaurant items:
Local pizza chain Noble Roman's now is offering take-and-bake pizzas at its corporate-owned store on Market Street downtown. Prices start at $8.99. Downtown office workers can buy a pie over lunch or by phone, and Noble Roman's will deliver it to your office in the afternoon.
The Italian restaurant Salvatore's, an institution at 86th Street and Ditch Road, has closed. A sign on the door says the restaurant equipment is for sale.
The local managing partner of Mo's...A Place for Steaks has bought out his Milwaukee-based partner. Jeremiah Hamman is now the solo owner of the popular steakhouse at the northeast corner of Pennsylvania and Maryland streets. The restaurant opened in 2003.
