The CSO Architects Corporate Headquarters makes use of an existing structure on the north side of Indianapolis, Indiana. Previously occupied by Bally Total Fitness, this building sits in the middle of Keystone at the Crossing, a large mixed-used development that forms the core of the far north side neighborhood and is one of Indianapolis’ premier business addresses. The building itself was constructed in 1986 and had been utilized as a Bally Total Fitness until 2009 when it was vacated and left idle for nearly a year. CSO Architects saw the economical and environmental advantages in reusing this existing facility as well as the benefits in relocating to a denser and more connected community. Minimal structural alterations were made – the existing slab on grade, floor deck, running track/mezzanine, roof deck, and exterior walls were reused as they were.
