Circle Block Parking Garage



The scope of the project was to design a garage two-stories below grade and six-stories above grade complementing the existing historic facades on the block. The garage needed to tie into the new corporate headquarters for Emmis and become a first floor shell restaurant space in downtown Indianapolis. A key staff member while at CSO Architects served as Project Manager and lead designer responsible for the development of schematic design options and design development documents. Additional responsibilities included project cost estimating and value engineering the design to reduce cost and execution of construction documents and specifications. The sixth image in the series shows the garage prior to the completion of the Conrad Hotel.
