Did you know: That second building is an original White Castle, from the 1920's.

I didn't know that! I've seen pictures of the old White Castle buildings before, but didn't put two and two together...

I haven't been home to Indy in a while and don't believe I've ever seen that first building. What exactly is it? Is it new construction or have I always just taken it for granted?

The occupants of the building deal in green building supplies. I'm not too sure on the building's history to tell you the truth. I can't really remember if it's a new or remodeled structure.

That first building was built around 2004-ish. At the time, it was on my route from Riley Towers to grad school at IUPUI so I watched it go up. It was mostly (particularly the taller back portion) built of pre-fab concrete panels. It's distinctive, to be sure, but aside from the Delaware frontage, I actually think it's pretty unattractive.
