300 North Meridian

300 North Meridian is a high rise in Indianapolis, Indiana. Construction started in 1987, financed by Browning Investments. The architects, Haldeman Miller Bregman Hamann (now BOKA Powell), built the outside with brownish-reddish granite and black windows, and capped the skyscraper with a copper-colored dome. Only the eastern side rises to the full height of the building; the northern and southern sides rise in a staircase shape toward the east. The architects intended 300 North Meridian’s design to echo the adjacent Chamber of Commerce building.[3][4] It was completed in 1989 and is currently the fifth-tallest building in the city.
