The City–County Building is a 28-story building at 200 East Washington Street in downtown Indianapolis, Indiana that houses the offices of the consolidated city-county government of Indianapolis and Marion County, Indiana, known as Unigov.
The building opened in 1962 after two years of construction, at a cost of $22 million. The City-County Building was the first building in the city to be taller than the Soldiers' and Sailors' Monument, and was the tallest building in the city until 1970. The building's total floor area covers 734,447 sq ft (68,232.4 m2).
Prior to its construction, Marion County offices were located in the Marion County Courthouse, which stood on what is now the plaza on the south side of the City–County Building; the courthouse was demolished upon completion of the latter. Indianapolis city offices were located in the Indianapolis City Hall.
The City–County Building houses the Marion County Courts, headquarters of the Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department, and the Indianapolis City-County Council. The office of the Mayor of Indianapolis is on the twenty-fifth floor of the building. An observation deck, open to the public, is accessible on the twenty-eighth floor of the building.
