Preserving History & Heritage
American baseball legend Branch Rickey once stated, “It is not the honor that you take with you, but the heritage you leave behind.” It was the 1900’s, and Rickey was breaking color barriers for the Major League Baseball. Around that same era, Florence Fay School was constructed in 1913, serving the Twin Aire neighborhood in the Indianapolis School District.
Almost a century later in 2006, the school closed, the community struggled, and the neighborhood was deteriorating. Fast forward a decade, our customer TWG Development saw an incredible opportunity in the historic building and community, bringing new life to the landmark by revamping it to the Florence Fay Senior Living facility.
Florence Fay is a 92,424-sq. ft. adaptive re-use project, where 67,271-sq. ft. of the original historic architecture and masonry was celebrated and preserved. An additional 25,153-sq. ft. of new construction was added all while adhering to current day code and standards. It brings the senior community a total of 73 living units, ranging from studios to two bedroom apartments.
InPwr Inc. is thrilled to build it better at Florence Fay, bringing new life to the area and filling the historic school’s hallways with laughter and memories once more. It is a legacy and heritage that lives on!
