INDIANAPOLIS, IN- Engine manufacturer Cummins has unveiled plans to build a 10-story office tower for its new global distribution business headquarters in Indianapolis.
Cummins expects to begin construction in early 2015 and move in by the end of 2016.
Indianapolis Mayor Greg Ballard commented: “This project raises the bar for architecture in Indy and will stand as a bold and visually compelling gateway into the city.”
The structure will have retail space on the ground floor as well as a public green space, replacing the old 16,000-seat Market Square Area. Of course the building will also have a conference center and parking garage.
“We are excited to be in downtown Indianapolis, bringing with us the architectural legacy that Cummins has established in Columbus, Indiana, and around the world,” Cummins Chairman and CEO Tom Linebarger said in a statement. “I am confident this space will create a dynamic place to work for our employees and customers while contributing to the city’s landscape.”
Cummins’ global headquarters will remain in Columbus where the company was founded 95 years ago.
