INDIANAPOLIS | Penn St. Hotel and Condos | 30 fl | Pro

So basically i am developing quite an interest in this so called "Penn Tower". I am not however overly optimistic after the widely acclaimed IC fell thru. Yet i wanna make a thread to post all the news or thoughts on this soon-to-be profound project!

I personally think it would be quite awesome if they like used the same design as the IC only on a scale that would not be so wide. Like perhaps 2/3 the width of the orignal design... Yet, you could also add a few floors & bring it to 51 or so floors. Perhaps that is a bit extreme but hey, i like the sound of it!

So pleeease whoever post whatever about this dubbed "Penn Tower". Feel free, i'd like to hear plenty of input!

Thanks in Advance,
~eRiCh

Well, from what Moochie has said, its supposed to be classical, like the 100 year old brick towers in NY or Chicago. Its supposed to be pretty interesting, I mean, its not cutting edge, artistic or anything, but it should be very good infill, not to mention a good addition to the skyline.

If it's half as nice as Moochie says, it will be the best looking building in our rather unimpressive CBD. I am really wanting to see this project get approved. We haven't had anything of this significance go up since the Chase Tower (formerly Bank One, formerly NBD(?)) in 1990. I don't count the upcoming Marriot because it's going to suck, I hate it and I would not be surprised if the 're-design' is as generic as the original submission.

No word here on Penn Tower, just a minor addition that before Banc One, it was American Fletcher National Bank...one of those long lost locals.

Moderator note: the number of floors is not known for this project. I think the floor number on this project is supposed to be on the JW Marriott, which is projected to be around 30 floors.
