Test Building, Indianapolis

Located on Monument Circle, the Test Building is a splendid example of 1920’s architectural design. It is a nine-story, reinforced concrete structure with 12-inch thick brick and clay tile curtain walls. Its noble facade, designed in a neoclassical style, utilizes Indiana limestone. Originally a six-story construction, three more floors were added. The third level of this Indianapolis landmark is decorated with stone panels created by Alexander Sangernebo.

The mixed-use building housed the city's earliest large parking garages. It was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1983.
