One Indiana SquareThe first of the new glass panels are up on One Indiana Square. What do you think so far? The transformation of the 36-story tower built in 1970 is expected to take about two years, so everyone will have plenty of time to decide if they like it.

The project likely will cost between $25 million and $30 million. The building was damaged last year by high winds and hail.

For an earlier post that includes a rendering, check here.

  • To me that facade actually looks really good. Much better than the renderings showed. This will really modernize the skyline imo, along with MSA Kosene and Pennn Centre.
  • I'm just glad to see them getting this thing going...It looks so tacky they way it is now.
  • I just hope that in the end they decide to modernize the base as well as the tower.
  • Worth it. Makes the skyline look much better and increases the value of that tower in the eyes of potential tenents.
  • I'm pretty sure this new facade is going to be amazing. Agreed, Josh, much better than the rendering. The rendering looked almost green and it looks decidedly blue in person (I highly recommend going to see it).
  • I really like it and as mentioned, this will do wonders for our skyline.

    Let's get the JW, Penn Centre, and MSA sites U/C NOW!!!!
  • A fresh look on our city will make it look cleaner. Either that or a nice cool, sleek feel to it.
  • Duuuuuck!
  • Yep CorrND although I do wish the cream colored lines were removed and it was just a solid blue. Now that would look slick as hell!!
  • How much influence does the city government have towards the style and look of major buildings?
  • Hey Cory! Any word on that proposed condo development on Indiana Ave. north of the Captiol? Ya know, the one that includes the proposed drive-thru bank too... Meh :-
  • JT- City government (DMD) has some influence in the Regional Center area currently, as such projects require regional center approval. In practice, this is sensitive to political adjustments.
  • looks good
  • I liked the original renderings, and I like it even better in person. It will add a distinct new look to our skyline. Good job.

  4. The question is, where could they build a new stadium? It seems in the past year, all the prime spots have been spoken for with potential projects. Maybe in the industrial wasteland area a block past Lucas Oil? I think it needs to be close to the core, if a new stadium is built.
