GENERAL INFORMATION | Located on the southwest side of Indianapolis, the oldest buildings date from the 1880s & feature exterior masonry walls with heavy timber columns & framing. Functioning as a metal recycling facility until 2010, the evolution of the complex can be visually understood via functional adaptations. These include the introduction of several 1-story additions constructed in the style of their time & reworking of numerous openings to accommodate an assortment of machinery over the years.


WORK SCOPE | Creation of 125 apartments in four 4-story buildings including a new elevator. All spaces are interconnected & accessible. 1-story buildings will contain a leasing office & fitness center. Innovative design entails removing the roof from two 1-story buildings to create enclosed courtyards for tenant use. Character defining features are to be retained & restored including elements that illustrate the building evolution. Construction Administration services will also provided throughout the renovation.
