A Deal Near for Historic Building?

The Indianapolis Historic Preservation Commission reports that Tharp Investments has asked for another continuance until August.  The firm is attempting to sell the former Post Office and Hook's Drug Store.  The company has been in lengthy negotiations with an unnamed buyer for most of the spring and early summer.  If the deal falls through then Tharp will ask for permission to demolish the building in August.  Hopefully, the ink can be signed soon and the building rescued from it current situation.  More details will be posted as they become known.


  1. Any updates on this building? I hope we don't lose it!

  2. Hi Jordan, I have not heard anything yet. I will call the IHPC and see if it is still on the docket for September. It was continued in August because both sides were close to a deal. I will keep you posted!
