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. I am so impressed that the smoking ban FAILED in Kokomo! I might just move to your Awesome city!

  2. way to much breweries being built in indianapolis. its going to be saturated market, if not already. when is enough, enough??

  3. This house is a reminder of Hamilton County history. Its position near the interstate is significant to remember what Hamilton County was before the SUPERBROKERs, Navients, commercial parks, sprawling vinyl villages, and acres of concrete retail showed up. What's truly Wasteful is not reusing a structure that could still be useful. History isn't confined to parks and books.

  4. To compare Connor Prairie or the Zoo to a random old house is a big ridiculous. If it were any where near the level of significance there wouldn't be a major funding gap. Put a big billboard on I-69 funded by the tourism board for people to come visit this old house, and I doubt there would be any takers, since other than age there is no significance whatsoever. Clearly the tax payers of Fishers don't have a significant interest in this project, so PLEASE DON'T USE OUR VALUABLE MONEY. Government money is finite and needs to be utilized for the most efficient and productive purposes. This is far from that.

  5. I only tried it 2x and didn't think much of it both times. With the new apts plus a couple other of new developments on Guilford, I am surprised it didn't get more business. Plus you have a couple of subdivisions across the street from it. I hope Upland can keep it going. Good beer and food plus a neat environment and outdoor seating.
