Merchants Building

The Merchants Building, completed in 1976 was originally 
the home of the Merchants Bank of Indiana and 
the Hyatt Regency Hotel. While the bank has been bought,
 taken over to become the PNC Bank.
The east end is made up of offices, as well as the 
bank, while the west half remains the hotel.

Recently upgraded and refurbished, the building is open, 
airy and attractive, with a lot of new restaurants, the building
seemed sadly empty. The signs on the outside say "PNC,"
but the shape of the building, seen from above,
remains the "M" logo that creates the unique shapes
and lights within its walls.

Phabulous Photography, Speedway (but then that's the norm over here).
What a glorious building; modern architecture does not need to be appalling (though it usually is); this must be an inspiring place to work.
