The Ivy Tech Fall Creek building had its ribbon cutting ceremony on January 20. The opening of the project marks five years of design and construction efforts for this landmark facility. The project involved reuse and restoration of 64,000 square feet of the old St. Vincent’s Hospital originally constructed in 1911 that had been under-utilized for the last 30 years. The total square footage for the project is just over 200,000.

Ivy Tech should be commended for salvaging such a historic structure in Indianapolis, and making it a valuable asset to the community once again. The project will serve as the flagship for Ivy Tech’s Indianapolis campus which has grown by more than 35,000 students. It really raises the bar to a new level for facilities in the area and across the state.
