New Headquarters for Nature ConservancyThe Nature Conservancy has agreed to buy an old industrial property on the eastern edge of downtown to develop a new Indiana headquarters. The $4.5 million project will revitalize or replace the former home of Nemec Heating & Supply Co. at 614 E. Ohio St. The property takes up about half the block between Easley Winery and the former home of Harmon Auto Glass, where construction is under way on the six-story, 105-unit Maxwell. The rest of the block is occupied by funeral services firm Buchanan Group, which just finished renovating its new headquarters, an old warehouse building. The Conservancy is working with locally based Axis Architects to design an energy-efficient headquarters with a “green” roof and extensive landscaping. The organization is aiming for the highest level of LEED certification. Check out the full story here.
