P.R. Mallory and Co. was once a major hub for employment and economic activity on the east side of Indianapolis. The former battery factory sat vacant for 30 years until now. After a $38M redevelopment, the property has been transformed into the P.R. Mallory Administration Building which houses Purdue Polytechnic High School’s downtown campus and the Paramount Englewood Middle School. Principals from both schools explain the importance of moving into this new location.
