Powers & Sons is providing Construction Management services for the redevelopment of Penrose on Mass, a 262,130 square foot mixed-use project in downtown Indianapolis. This massive new $50 million retail/restaurant space is the tipping point that transitions the cultural district from one of Indianapolis’ most popular nightlife destinations to a better-rounded neighborhood. The first floor contains 38,000 square feet of retail and restaurant space, and the second through fifth floors feature 59,500 square feet of apartments per floor, representing 122 units that range from 465 to 1,450 square feet. Penrose on Mass will bring 236 apartments and 37,000 square feet of retail space to the 500 block of Massachusetts, increasing the district’s retail space by approximately 25 percent. Powers & Sons is proud to be a part of this redevelopment project, which will not only bring new residents and new businesses to this block, but also new outdoor public spaces for the community.
Rebuilding Together Duneland has been bringing volunteers and communities together to improve the homes and lives of financially-burdened homeowners, assuring that they live in warmth, safety, dignity, and independence. For two decades, they have been the nation’s largest nonprofit volunteer organization dedicated to rehabilitating communities and houses of financially struggling homeowners, focusing strongly on the elderly, physically challenged and those with children. Powers & Sons and the Purdue Northwest Construction Club participated in the 20th year serving the Duneland community by volunteering their day to repair a home for someone in need. The volunteer team removed the existing front living room window and replaced it with an energy efficient window, installed gutter guards, broke up concrete slabs that were obstructing the walkway and much more. Westville Elementary’s Daisy Troop No. 85 potted 10 plants that are beautifully displayed on the porch. The owner of the home was very grateful to this great organization that is helping provide safe and healthy homes for the community. Special thanks go out to our team members who volunteered their Saturday for a great cause (Rob Kennedy, Jeremy Booker, Sharon & Mike Mayer, Jeremy Wilson, Scott Brown, and Cassie Carlson).
