Another rundown building near the northwest corner of Washington and Pennsylvania streets is getting some attention after years of neglect.
Workers are putting a fresh coat of paint on 44 E. Washington St., the former home of a savings and loan that’s been vacant for years. Building owner Jay Kim said he’s investing more than $80,000 on his own and also won a $10,000 façade grant from Indianapolis Downtown Inc. to help with the project.
Kim plans to revamp the entrance, add a new roof, paint the building on all sides, and gut the interior in a bid to attract new tenants. He hopes for a retailer on the first floor.
Property records show the structure was built in 1919.
