Red Cross To Build New Home In Indianapolis

Last updated on Friday, December 6, 2013

(INDIANAPOLIS) - The American Red Cross of Greater Indianapolis is buying a new home.

CEO John Lyter says the organization will close soon on a three-acre parcel of land at 14th & Meridian on the city's near Northside. That's where the old WXIN building is being torn down to make way for the Red Cross' new $10 million, 42,000 square foot state of the art facility.

Lyter says their current home at 441 East 10th Street will become the new headquarters for the Indianapolis Fire Department.

Lyter says once completed, the Red Cross' new building will actually be smaller than their current home, but he adds that the Red Cross operates more efficiently these days.

They hope to break ground on the new site after January.

The project is expected to take about 15 months to complete.
