Facts

  • One of two major clubhouse buildings downtown, the Columbia Club was traditionally a seat of Republican political power, while the Indianapolis Athletic Club, now the Athletic Club Condominiums, 3 blocks north along Meridian Street, catered more to Democrats.
  • A revision in municipal codes allowing 10 floors (up to 13 if incorporating a mansard roof) was enacted before this building was constructed.
  • The Columbia Club is the only building on the Circle to have taken advantage of this clause allowing additional floors under mansard roofs.
  • The rival Indianapolis Athletic Club closed in September 2004. The Columbia Club had expressed interest in renovating and operating the club facilities if a large number of former IAC members agree to join the Columbia Club, but this did not come to fruition.
  • This stately commercial building is characterized by a three-story base, a slight projection of the central seven windows of the middle zone, and an attic story with a copper mansard roof.
  • The Columbia Club Building is surrounded on 3 sides by the Chase Center.
  • Before construction of the Columbia Club a municipal ordinance restricted building heights on Monument Circle to 86 feet.
  • It was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1983.
