WFYI HeadquartersWFYI plans to break ground this morning on an expansion of its new headquarters building. The public broadcaster is moving into the former Vectren Building at 1630 N. Meridian St. WFYI will add a 5,500-square-foot addition housing its digital TV studios (shown here). The project was designed by Ratio Architects and will be built by Shiel Sexton. Mansur Real Estate Services assisted with the purchase of the 94,000-square-foot building. WFYI plans to occupy the first and second floors and lease the third and fourth. What do you think?
  • I'm trying to picture what's currently there and what's the expansion. The expansion is just the incredibly boring part on the right side, correct?
  • i think you are correct. another classic ratio project...
  • Here's a MUCH better rendering from Ratio's website!
  • much better rendering, and it looks like they brought it up to the street...thanks for sending it over, erich!
  • Thanks Erich!
  • You're quite welcome. I thought it was a bit more flattering than the one posted originally! But yes... Thank YOU Mr.Schouten for doing such an awesome job on this blog! I really enjoy reading this each & every day...
  • That rendering may be labeled WFYI renovation and addition but I don't think it's the same one we're looking at here. The one on Ratio's webpage looks like a plan they may have had to renovate the old WFYI building at 14th and Meridian. This is their new home just north of 16th and Meridian.
  • This addition just adds to the hodge podge look of this structure.

    It clearly doesn't continue the facade or design on the street level.
  • Subtlety in action. Think about what your HDTV screen looks like.

    Okay, so it's not a twisted tower. But that doesn't make it bad architecture.
  • Do any of you regular perusers agree that a little talked about, yet vital, key to the downtown area's overall health and development includes rezoning and development from Alabama to Rural Sts? Included with that, the long talked about, formerly promised demolition of the I-65 south aerial ramp with its replacement at Washington Street? Your feedback.

  2. My name is Mr Henry Josh and i live in the USA California and life is worth living right now for me and my family and all this is because of one man sent by GOD to help me and my family, i once had a life filled with sorrow because my first SON needed a kidney transplant and all our savings were going towards his medications and this normally leaves us with no money to pay our bills or even put enough food on our table and our rent was due and no funds to pay these bills and life felt so unfair to me and every night my wife will cry herself to sleep every night until one day, i was browsing through yahoo answers and i saw a striking advert of a man that gives out personal loans and that the offer is opened to all and i have heard so many things about internet scams but at this point of my life, i was very desperate and ready to take any risk and at the end of the day, i applied for this loan and from one step to another, i got my loan within 12 hours through bank transfer and you know, it was all like a dream and i called Mr Daniel Jones A Man who is the GOD sent lender i found and said, i have received my loan and he smiled stating that to GOD be the glory and i was so shocked as i have never ever seen anyone with such a GOD fearing and kind heart and today, i am the happiest man on earth because by GOD’S grace, my SON kidney transplant was successful and today he is healthy, i and my family are living very comfortable and happy and if you are in my former situation or in serious and legitimate need of a loan, you can reach this GOD sent lender via

  4. Elected officials, like Mourdock, get vested in 8 years. It takes 10 years for all other public employees, most of whom make a lot less money. So much for the promise to finish out his term.

  5. Great state treasurer and a good man!! Just curious if the folks who didn't quite understand his quote would like to tell my daughter-in-law that God didn't intend her! Mourdock's comment was correct but twisted and the article didn't mention that his opponent and the press let the impression stand that Mourdock meant that the rape was intended. Stupid people!!
