Tired. That’s how Chris Braun described the former state of the building at 1350 N. Delaware St. in Indianapolis, the newest addition to the Plews Shadley Racher & Braun campus on the city’s Old Northside. But a recent renovation gave a new lease on life to a mid-century landmark.
The orange textured exterior had to go, but otherwise the one-story building with a walkout basement on the edge of Broad Ripple Village was the perfect spot for the lawyers of Fox Williams & Sink LLC.
The Indiana Attorney General’s office recently underwent a design-on-a-dime renovation completed with the help of woodworkers from the Department of Correction and thrifty bargain-hunting by the office’s staff.
Managing partner Tobin McClamroch explained the new office design reflects how the legal profession is changing.
The new location contains a calmer, more relaxed and “dog-friendly” environment for lawyers and staff.
