One Indiana Square is a 36-story building at 211 North Pennsylvania Street in downtown Indianapolis, Indiana, United States. It is used by various companies for offices. The building opened in 1970 as the headquarters of Indiana National Bank. The building now serves as the Indiana headquarters for Regions Financial Corporation. The building also carries the Regions name and logo.
The tower rises from a base that is several stories tall and covers the southern half of the block bounded by Pennsylvania, New York, Delaware, and Ohio streets. Original plans called for two additional towers on the northern half of the block, one of twenty stories in the northeast corner and one of twelve stories in the northwest corner, but neither was constructed. The first block of Massachusetts Avenue originally ran diagonally through the block, but it was vacated for the project. The Knights of Pythias Building, a flatiron-shaped building at the corner of Massachusetts and Pennsylvania, was among those demolished to allow construction of One Indiana Square.
In the mid- to late-1990s, a new facade and exterior lighting design were installed. The new facade was necessitated, in part, by damage the building had experienced in 1978, 1980, and 1990.
The building underwent a second exterior make over after being damaged by tornado-strength winds on April 2, 2006. The latest facade is a light blue curtain wall that is largely transparent; it was designed by Gensler of San Francisco.
