Columbus-based Cummins Inc. (NYSE: CMI) leadership will join Indianapolis Mayor Joe Hogsett Thursday afternoon to showcase the progress on the company’s $30 million headquarters project downtown. The engine maker expects the operation, which spans four acres on the former Market Square Arena site, to open early next year.
Architect Deborah Berke will also take part in today’s tour. The company says the office tower will have a "progressive look," designed to spark collaboration. It will also include first-floor retail space and greenspace around the property as well. The new space is expected to house about 450 employees.
The company first announced the project in the Market East district in 2014. At the time, then-Mayor Greg Ballard said the tower would be a "bold and visually compelling" gateway to the city.
Inside INdiana Business will be at this afternoon’s tour, and will update this story. Cummins Director of External Communications Jon Mills will be a guest on Inside INdiana Business Television this weekend.
