Keep Indianapolis Beautiful is planning to renovate a vacant industrial building in Fountain Square to serve as its new headquarters. The not-for-profit will seek LEED certification for the 25,000-square-foot building at the corner of Fletcher and Shelby streets, across from a walk-up Dairy Queen. The group paid about $500,000 for the red-brick building, the former home of janitorial supply company Roger Popp Inc. The building will get a green roof, cysterns to catch water and a center atrium as part of the $1.7 million renovation. KIB plans to break ground in late August.
