September 30th - Updated Pics

They have started applying sheeting to the lower levels along Mass Ave. and have also been installing cinder block walls on the 7th floor and the roof. I am assuming that the cinder block wall is for the terraces on both levels.

I like the canyon feel-look that the building is giving. That surrounding feel.

Urban Indy has a sweet shot from the CCB over on his blog. I hope he doesn't mind me copying it over here!

Very nice. The first floor retail will be an excellent addition to the area. From some of the pictures it looks like there is already decent ground retail in the area.

This is a big win for Indy.

There's gonna be some brick, some glass, and a whole lotta beige EIFS. I'm starting to dread the days that they intall the EIFS.

Just check the beginning of the virtual tour on the website: http://3mass.com/

It's gonna be BEIGE and most likely ugly. Hope not.

Just around the corner, to the right in this picture, are two facades with ZERO brick made entirely of EIFS (and glass).



The view from Mass Ave. will be decent, but the view from the Cultural Trail, O'Malias, basically anywhere "behind" the building, is going to look like doo-doo. It's going to be a huge beige wall, much like the infamous Villagio on Virginia Ave.

The curve parts of the upper floors,the steel points,and is not a complete curve. You see it in the video also. Is this supposed to be this way, covered by the outer wall which is a curve?

Just to clarify, are you asking if the finished curve of the top floors will differ from the present shape of the steel frame?

Well the outer looks to be a curve, the inner steel has points. I was not sure if that is correct. The patio areas would not be an exact curve, unless they get finished like the outside. So-yes.

I can watch the progress from my new perch on the 12th floor of Indiana Square. How in the heck do they take that crane apart when they are done with it?

If I remember correctly, most of it will be re-used for the main elevator shaft.

How they get the craine itself down, who knows.

They have started laying brick on the Massachusetts Ave. side of the building.
