Location: The Showers Building Complex – 10th Street and Rogers Road, Bloomington
Cost: ~$12 Million

Challenged to address parking demand for the growing inner-urban tech and innovation Bloomington Trades District, the City of Bloomington Redevelopment Commission authorized a bond funded multi-level parking garage to replace existing surface level parking whereby more than tripling capacity of existing resources. Unique for this project and reflecting its excellence is the design of the garage to mimic the district’s historically significant factory architecture, including brick exteriors and saw-tooth roof lines.

Complimentary design aesthetics aside, the City has maximized the opportunities of use for this facility. Parking, a City parking services office for those patronizing the garage, utilization of typically low-yield space for high-yield City IT redundant server “farm,” and public amenities such as family restrooms proximal to the B Line walking trail all reflect an extraordinary commitment to extract full value for the City. Designed and operated to meet ParkSmart standards and incorporating solar energy generation and public arts installations, the City of Bloomington continues to support sustainable civic projects like this with an eye to responsible community and business growth in the years ahead.

The Glendale Branch project for the Indianapolis Public Library will finally give the branch its own stand-alone building, after being located in the Glendale Shopping Center since the year 2000. The library needed easier access for patrons, more daylight and study spaces, and modernization of overall service capability. The new branch will give the library an opportunity to strengthen its civic identity and impact to the surrounding area by increasing services and access, which is expected to nearly double the daily visitors to the branch. Through discussion with library leaders and community engagement sessions, it also became clear that there was excitement for a facility with a strong community identity in fluidity with the residential neighborhood it will reside in, while also depicting the modern institution of today’s public libraries. Community engagement helped cast the vision for krM’s design team that the 5.7-acre site would feel more like a neighborhood park, with the library at its epicenter, detailed with timeless materials and warm interior finishes.
