Charles C. Brandt Construction Co. (CCB) had a unique opportunity to work cooperatively with the City of Indianapolis and several members of the business community to initiate development of the downtown area around the canal. The first project in this revitalized area was Canal Overlook Apartments.
Canal Overlook Apartments was the catalyst to breathe new life into the area. CCB was instrumental in pulling together the multitude of bits and pieces required in developing the project including site preparation, architectural design interface, assistance with minority participation, and gaining owner and community approval for the project. CCB even had a hand in assisting with the leasing of the property. We were keenly aware of the need for rapid return on the owner’s investment.
Once the apartments were well on their way CCB was awarded the Canal Features project by the City of Indianapolis. The beautiful fountains, pools and walkways were the cornerstone of turning the canal into a favorite Sunday afternoon “get away” for many Indianapolis residents.
