Tallest Building in Indiana from 1970 until 1982, when the OneAmerica Tower was completed.
One Indiana Square received a new crown design (reclad by Jones & Brown) and exterior lighting scheme in the mid-late 1990s.
Strong winds from severe thunderstorms blew out numerous windows on the higher floors of the north and west sides on April 2, 2006. Similar events occurred in 1978, 1980, and 1990.
A new design was announced in March 2007 to replace the damaged facade. Designed by Gensler of San Francisco, the tower was re-skinned over a two-year period.
One Indiana Square was constructed on the site previously occupied by the Knights of Pythias Building and the 200 block of Massachusetts Avenue. This diagonal street was vacated from the Ohio Street/Pennsylvania Street intersection to the New York Street/Delaware Street intersection at that time to make way for the new tower.
One Indiana Square was originally conceived to include two additional towers, one of approximately 20 floors at the SW corner of Delaware Street & New York Street, and the other of approximately 12 floors at the SE corner of New York Street and Pennsylvania Street. These towers were never built.
The tower rises from the west side of a broad platform that occupies the entire southern half of the block.
This is the tallest building completed in Indianapolis during the 1970s.
