What people are realizing, and it speaks to the success of the historic districts and saving these neighborhoods, is that it has created an environment where lots of people want to live in now, Bill Browne, IHPC's chairman and Ratio Architects' founder, told IBJ.
Milhaus latest design for the property is an improvement from what it first proposed, Browne said, but the existing building has a lot of character in its own right.
We want to make sure the architecture is at a high standard because of the importance of the intersection, Browne told IBJ.

INDIANAPOLIS - (February 17, 2009) ..., 17 Feb 2009 [cached]
INDIANAPOLIS - (February 17, 2009) Bill Browne, the founding principal of RATIO Architects, has been elected into the prestigious American Institute of Architects (AIA) College of Fellows in recognition of his design work throughout Indiana and the country.
Browne was the only Indiana architect this year to be elected for AIA Fellowship, which recognizes significant national contributions to the architecture profession and society. He is the 26th Hoosier since the mid-1960s to be elevated to the AIA Fellow status, one of the highest honors an architect can receive from his peers.
When Browne first founded RATIO in 1982, the firm's primary focus was historic preservation.
"It is a great honor to be elected into the AIA College of Fellows, but it wouldn't have been possible without my talented colleagues at RATIO, and the wide range of leaders, visionaries and community partners who value the positive impact that design can have on our city and state," Browne said.
For 17 years, Browne has served as the mayoral appointment to the Indianapolis Historic Preservation Commission, and has played a pivotal role in revitalization efforts of the city's historic districts. In February 2008, Gov. Mitch Daniels honored Browne for his design work for the state by naming him a Sagamore of the Wabash, one of the highest awards given by the state to a citizen.
Browne is also a member of the 2012 Super Bowl Bid Committee; a member of the Marian College Cycling Advisory Board; a member of the Indiana Limestone Company Advisory Board; and the Treasurer for the Indiana State Museum Foundation.
Browne has partnered with several local, national and international artists including David Young and Jeff Laramore, Robert Indiana, Dale Chihuly and J. Seward Johnson to develop creative works to help spotlight public art in mid-sized cities.
Browne is a past president of the Indianapolis chapter of the AIA, and a member of both the state and local chapters of the organization.
