Owners of One Indiana Square unveiled plans Monday for the permanent repair and redesign of the building that was damaged in a severe thunderstorm a year ago.Officials said they still don't know how much the repairs will cost, but they know about how long it will take -- two years, 6News' Norman Cox reported.
The building will get a new glass and metal exterior that will extend 18 inches out from the existing wall. Officials described the new outer wall as striking and up-to-date. They said the design will fit in well architecturally with more recently constructed towers in the downtown skyline.The new shell was made necessary by a severe thunderstorm that ripped away portions of the facade last April. Tenants will have few issues to deal with during the construction, officials said."I'm not going to tell you there's going to be no disruption. There's clearly going to be disruption. There's certainly going to be visual disruption," said Todd Maurer, the building's co-owner. "Our goal is to have as little disruption as possible."Construction is scheduled to begin in June and be finished in the summer of 2009.
