I was also out and about around One Indiana Square yesterday and took this shot with my new camera.

I take the new east Washington exit (which is a zig-zagged mess) a few times a week and can't help but notice how the re-clad makes the skyline appear much taller than before when coming from south I-65 Northbound.

Yeah, it really makes the skyline look fresh and like you said, taller.

Maybe they will get this thing done soon. But I wonder how much a hurry they are in? Contract and work and weather combined.

I noticed that they are finally beginning to install the new cladding on the west side of the building.

Installing those beams seems to take the most time. Once that's completed slapping the glass panels on goes pretty quick.

There were some people walking through the suites the other day looking at where the sprinkler heads were. After the old facade is removed from the inside they will need to extend those out to accommodate for the extra square feet.

I am falling in love with this glass tower. The "dark band" along the west end has looked ridiculous until now with the band "wrapping" around to the west side.

Also, I can't wait to see what the LED will be like.

I agree on the black band; it looks much better when it wraps completely around the corner.

I was walking towards Indiana Square from West Ohio this afternoon. The new glass on the west side of the bldg. gave off a spectacular reflection of the SBC building. Almost like a smooth and shiny aluminum foil.

i like the new skin... definitely a huge improvement (never really cared for the changes they made to the original design). just hope they do something to the base to tie it all together! hopefully, they had the new architects draw up some plans they can implement in the future.

Wish a couple more downtown buildings would get a new skin. The Old Blue Cross, and The Old Indiana Bell....

I'm realizing more and more that re-skinning buildings isn't always a good idea. In the case of One Indiana Square, it was needed since the current facade isn't engineered properly to handle high winds. It's too bad too; the original Indiana National Bank facade (not the tacky facade that was added around 1994) was a great example of an international style skyscraper.

I like the dark one, not the stone one. Can't keep the names straight. Wish I liked the 1932? building but no I never have.
