Southwest Indiana's tallest building was imploded Sunday morning.

The 18-story tower in downtown Evansville was home to the Old National Bank headquarters from 1970 to 2004. After the bank moved out, the tower’s occupancy dropped, its condition deteriorated, and efforts to rehabilitate it failed.

After the debris is cleared work will begin on a new re-development project.

Domo Development Company LLC and the Downtown Evansville Development Corporation (DEDC) presented an updated redevelopment plan to to the Evansville Redevelopment Commission earlier this month.

The two projects will feature ground floor park-oriented commercial space for restaurant and small-scale food businesses, along with additional commercial space facing Sycamore.

The two new buildings will contain:

  • 126 apartments
  • Approximately 48,000 sq. ft. office space
  • Approximately 50,000 sq. ft. ground floor space
  • 113 underground parking spaces with the remaining parking served by the City parking garage at 5th & Sycamore
  • A rooftop deck on the six-story building at the corner of 5th & Main

Wow!!!! It's cold!!!! After a trace of snow in Evansville and some highe amounts to the south, we're waking up to temperatures in the mid to upper teens across the Tri-State. Thankfully, road crews did a fantastic job treating the roads to keep conditions from getting slick. However, the northerly winds gusting as high as 15 to 20 mph has dropped wind chill values into the single digits and even below zero in our western communities. There won't be much of an improvement in temperatures this afternoon. With the strong northerly wind flow and dry skies our highs will only reach the mid to upper 20s. Winds will stay quite breezy keeping the wind chill factor in place through the day.
