360 Market and Cummins in Progress

Ok, I admit that I’m now a daily auto commuter. This has been true for a while. But this does give me the opportunity to see the progress of the 360 Market and Cummins buildings on an almost daily basis. Here are some gloomy photos of them as of this morning:

I then walk down the temporarily covered Market Street corridor to my office. Most construction projects in Indy force pedestrians to use the other side of the street, but this route was used so often that a request was made to keep it open. I wish it were more common to see barrier-protected temporary sidewalks in construction zones in Indy. But, I guess it’s a good thing that there’s still a lot of work to be done to make Indy a better place for all users. It helps keep this website relevant.

    There is a construction cam for the 360 Market Square site, with continually refreshed images (as opposed to live streaming). Here is the link:

    Though I am not a fan of how the Artistry buildings are aging, I do love “feeling” of the Market Street corridor as these buildings go up, the sense of enclosure along the streetscape. The Cummins building is a great addition to downtown. Now let’s see how the 21C building changes Alabama.

      I completely agree. These buildings are filling in some massive holes that has kept this part of downtown largely irrelevant up until recently.

      I’m super excited over the skinny apartments between the parking garage and the Artistry. I’d love to see more of that type of creativity around town, especially for miniature retail space. I’d love to see what unique little shops would pop up in 100sqft spaces.

    Every time I look at the Cummins building, I get confused how it’s going to look anything like the renederings.

    • Cody C says:

      Most of the renderings I’ve seen are only taken from the S-SW directions, I saw one from the East but I think they’ve made changes to the design, which happens more often than not.

    Here’s an interesting article from Ratio regarding the Cummins tower.
