it looks like the odd strip will extend to and be the dominate feature on the sides too, so maybe that will help

so I thought the big thing at the top of the building was an led board? but on the property lines blog it says they're blue fins. bummer if they don't do something cool with it, the skyline could really use some color

I'm disappointed with Property Line's description of the vertical partitions as "blue fins." It sounds like something my mom would say. He could have at least taken the time to research the correct architectural term. (And I'm not saying "vertical partition" is the correct term either. )

Yes someone here did see them testing the LEDs a couple of months ago.

McKnight Properties manages the building. See what is on top? "One Indiana Square" in white letters? I found this rendition on their website.

No kidding!!! That's a much more impressive rendering.

I like your blog as well and look forward to it.

From the looks of this rendering, they are going to change the base as well. The white columns are still there, but it looks like new skin.

I wonder what that blue is on the base pedistal as well. Are they also gonna have a street level LED sign? That's a bit scarey to me. You think that's just a mistake on the rendering? It doesn't show up on the two pics previous.

The base needs something! I have complained about this for awhile. Something, just so there is not such a clash, and some newness(not sure if that is a word) on the base of this building. Can a minimal amount of money help the base? I am sure it can.

Coming from south 65, downtown looks completely different. I can't believe how much one building can change a city. This definitely makes Indy look even more "shiney and new" which is either a good thing or a bad thing (depending on how you look at it).

I agree. Was downtown over the weekend and couldn't believe how much different it is FINALLY starting to look.

Jim, the re-cladding is a result of storm damage. The pedestal was excluded, likely for cost reasons. Potentially it could be redone later if need be.

I was looking at the top of the One Indiana Square tower today. It looked like they were putting a new glass "covering" over the top of the blue "blades" or whatever those dark blue vertical striped things are on the top. Or maybe removing some of the blades? Kind of hard to tell exactly what they are doing. It just seemed like they were changing things somehow and that there was less of the vertical blue blades showing on the eastern side of the building. Kind of strange. I could be completely wrong about this - but that's what it looked like to me. Anyone else see this or have any idea of what they are doing?

Did anyone else notice them testing the LED board on top of One Indiana last night? Not sure if this has been going on a while and I just now noticed, or if it's something new. It was changing solors from blue to a deep purple. A portion of it was green also. It's really gonna look nice when it's all completed.
