The administrative building for Indianapolis Public Schools is getting a $3.2 million overhaul to shore up two levels of parking. Workers have removed the facade from most of the second and third floorsJohn Morton-Finney Center of the John Morton-Finney Center for Educational Services. The building sits along Walnut Street between Delaware and Pennsylvania streets on the north end of downtown. More than 40 years of car traffic, and the accompanying salt and snow, have taken their toll on the building’s unusual layout. The structure has offices in the basement, first floor and fourth-through-seventh floors, while parking is on the second and third floors. IPS hasn’t decided yet whether to replace walls that previously hid the parking levels. The project will not affect the Whaling Wall by marine artist Wyland that adorns the building’s north face.
