Gresk BuildingA new headquarters for Gresk & Singleton Law Firm and Gresk Realty has been "coming soon" northwest of Delaware and 10th streets for the better part of two years. What gives? Blame the delays on design changes and a shoddy brick job that had to be torn down and redone, said Paul Gresk, a partner in both companies. He said the $1.7-million building should be completed in about 90 days. The contractor is locally based The Merge Group.

  • The Merge Group has been fired for gross incompetence...
  • Now if they could only tear down the 3-story vacant apartment building behind them on Penn. Hard to believe I used to live there!
  • Any news on the modernist development across the street? The last renderings I saw looked quite attractive, and the neighborhood group approved it.
  • That 3-story yellow brick is in a historic neighborhood. It'll have to be falling down before it's torn down.
  • ablerock, I'm not familiar with that development. Who's doing it? Could you send me the renderings?
  • Cory, the other development was approved by the IHPC I believe so they will have drawings. The architect was HAUS.

    Speaking of IHPC, I wonder if Gresk's approval has expired yet. I would hate to see it delayed further because someone forgot to file an extension!
  • what yellow brick building are we talking about?
    Seriously, its not even a highrises, this should have been finished monthes ago.
  • Helen, unfortunately 3 stories is considered a high rise in Indianapolis.
  • The Merge Group has not been terminated on this job. They are still the general contractors for The Gresk Center. This building has undergone serious design changes throughout the building process and they still have not all been completed at this time. I am attorney that works for the group and can be contacted for any additional information on this project via phone at 317-691-1911

  1. In reality, Lilly is maintaining profit by cutting costs such as Indiana/US citizen IT workers by a significant amount with their Tata Indian consulting connection, increasing Indian H1B's at Lillys Indiana locations significantly and offshoring to India high paying Indiana jobs to cut costs and increase profit at the expense of U.S. workers.

  2. I think perhaps there is legal precedence here in that the laws were intended for family farms, not pig processing plants on a huge scale. There has to be a way to squash this judges judgment and overrule her dumb judgement. Perhaps she should be required to live in one of those neighbors houses for a month next to the farm to see how she likes it. She is there to protect the people, not the corporations.

  3. http://www.omafra.gov.on.ca/english/engineer/facts/03-111.htm Corporate farms are not farms, they are indeed factories on a huge scale. The amount of waste and unhealthy smells are environmentally unsafe. If they want to do this, they should be forced to buy a boundary around their farm at a premium price to the homeowners and landowners that have to eat, sleep, and live in a cesspool of pig smells. Imagine living in a house that smells like a restroom all the time. Does the state really believe they should take the side of these corporate farms and not protect Indiana citizens. Perhaps justifiable they should force all the management of the farms to live on the farm itself and not live probably far away from there. Would be interesting to investigate the housing locations of those working at and managing the corporate farms.

  4. downtown in the same area as O'malia's. 350 E New York. Not sure that another one could survive. I agree a Target is needed d'town. Downtown Philly even had a 3 story Kmart for its downtown residents.

  5. Indy-area residents... most of you have no idea how AMAZING Aurelio's is. South of Chicago was a cool pizza place... but it pales in comparison to the heavenly thin crust Aurelio's pizza. Their deep dish is pretty good too. My waistline is expanding just thinking about this!
