300 North Meridian is a high rise in Indianapolis, Indiana. Construction started in 1987, financed by Browning Investments. The architects, Hadleman Miller Bregman Hamann, 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.[1][2] It was completed in 1989 and is currently the fifth-tallest building in the city.

300 North Meridian is primarily used for office space, although 9 of its floors are occupied by a parking garage.[1] Of the building's 509,582 square feet of space, only 347,551 square feet are usable by offices. As of February 2014, 17.5% of the usable office space is vacant,[3] and the building is owned by REI Real Estate Services. The building was valued at 39 million dollars in 2013.[4][5]

One of the main tenants of 300 North Meridian is the law firm Faegre Baker Daniels, known as Baker & Daniels at the time of construction. The group has a lobby and library on the 27th floor.[1][2]
