former downtown jailThe owner of a former Community Corrections jail facility at the southwest corner of Delaware and Maryland streets has put the building up for sale, with an asking price of $1.5 million. The 30,900-square-foot former warehouse, built in 1900, features tall ceilings, huge windows with skyline views and a brick exterior with historic features. It also has remnants of its former use, including opaque windows covered by steel fencing, open stalls of toilets and showers, raised platforms used by jail guards and rows and rows of bunks. The corrections department late last year agreed to move inmates out of the building as part of a lawsuit settlement with the Indiana Civil Liberties Union. Most potential buyers see the historically designated Wholesale District building as potential office space, maybe with a restaurant or fitness center on the first floor. Read the full story here.
