Work Begins At Old City Hall

Finding the perfect tenant for Old City Hall has been challenging Indianapolis leaders and planners since the city offices moved out of the space over 50 years ago. 

Built in 1910, the majestic building features a sweeping rotunda that makes it difficult to repurpose but first steps are being taken. 

On Monday morning, masons began reopening windows that have been bricked up for decades. 

People for Urban Progress, a local group well known for reusing significant materials in innovative ways, will discuss how they plan to do that during this renovation. 

The hall was recently highlighted when the city hosted the National Preservation Conference.  Current plans call for the building to house a temporary urban planning hub.
