Potential Sale on the Horizon for Troubled Historic Structure

Tharp Investments has asked for another continuance from the Indianapolis Historic Preservation Commission.   The company originally asked for permission to demolish the former Irvington Post Office and Hook's Drug Store (5502 East Washington St.), but the firm has delayed that request.  The IHPC is reporting that the corporation is still in negotiations to sell the building and has asked for a continuance until July.  If the deal falls through, they may still ask the agency for permission to demolish the historic structure; however, there appears to be a credible offer on the table.   More details will be posted as they become available.  The potential sale of this structure is welcome news for this forlorn-looking, but important corner of Irvington.
