IMG_6549A decorative white terracotta panel in the Art Deco style from the facade of the old Coca-Cola Company bottling plant on Mass Ave in Indianapolis, Indiana.

Designed by Rubush & Hunter Architects and opened in 1931, the building was the largest bottling plant for Coca-Cola across the world in the 40’s. The Coca-Cola Company moved out in 1968, and Indianapolis Public Schools moved in four years later in `72. After serving IPS for years as a central kitchen, bus depot and service center and a training facility amng other things, it is now slated to be re-developed as a mixed-use project that would include retail space, a hotel, apartments, offices, restaurants and a movie theater.
