Athletic Club CondosIndianapolis, Indiana
Originally built in 1924, the Athletic Club remains one of the most famous and historically significant buildings in Indianapolis. Browning Day’s renovation of the building added 78 condominiums, including 68 in a high-rise tower. The condos encompass a variety of styles and floor plans, from one-bedroom lofts to three-bedroom flats complemented by in-house amenities such as a full basketball court, exercise rooms, racquetball and squash courts, fine dining and banquet facilities. The garage basement provides parking for 25 cars in addition to more than 70 individual storage units. Exterior historical restoration was a key component to the renovation of the Athletic Club building. Browning Day replaced existing wood windows and added more than 40 new window openings in both the tower and annex, allowing natural light to penetrate these spaces for the first time. The design for the Vermont Street streetscape introduced planting and vegetation hence softening the streetscape and overall improving the project’s sustainability.
