WTH? Will this hurt? Will this help?

Remove economic motivations, remove excuses, and ask yourself how far has this strayed from its original design? From an aesthetic point of view: is this compatible or incompatible, good or bad, worthy or unworthy  of the fine capital city of Indianapolis? Please bear in mind: the only purpose of this series is to stand for the appropriate renovation and redevelopment of the built environment of Indianapolis. No malice, no hostility, just an observation and inquiry.

For those who need help or guidance in how to sympathetically restore or alter historic buildings, Indianapolis is fortunate enough to have the Indianapolis Historic Preservation Commission (IHPC), located in the City-County Building.

    Can’t figure out about where this building to me.is located; it could be east, west, or south, at least

    this building is in Irvington. at Bonna and Audubon. eventually, we hope, the Pennsy trail will go right past here. someone is planning to open a coffee shop in this building.

    Cool! Hope the old Pennsy tracks can be converted to the trail, and those houses built in the old railroad bed are bought or condemned to make the trail “whole”.
