April 17, 2015

Chris Cooper photographed our latest 21c Museum Hotel that is located in Durham’s 1937 Hill Building. Cooper’s photographs highlight our balance of Art Deco details and 21st century design in the historic building, built by Shreve, Lamb & Harmon, architects of the Empire State Building. The project includes 10,500 square feet of contemporary art galleries and event space, the Counting House restaurant, and a 125-room hotel. It opened in March.

Groundbreaking for Cummins Indy

April 10, 2015

Yesterday marked the groundbreaking of our new building for Cummins Inc.’s global Distribution Business headquarters. Our design team joined Tony Satterthwaite, president of the Distribution Business, Indianapolis Mayor Greg Ballard, and company and city officials for the celebration. The project site has been a parking lot since the Market Square Arena was demolished more than a decade ago; it is now one step closer to bringing more greenspace, jobs, and commerce to the Market East District. Congratulations to Cummins, Indianapolis, and the entire design team on this exciting milestone.
