Vol. 15 No. 6 - August/September 2015
Located at 6020 East 82nd St. in Indianapolis, the Castleton Square Mall had a lifestyle addition completed in 2008 that featured decorative concrete. The new area features sand-matrix-finish walkways with bevel saw cuts and a colored and stamped central plaza. Custom-made frieze panels fashioned out of GFRC add to the mall’s visual appeal, especially when they’re spotlighted at night.
The project, which used 980 cubic yards of concrete, was run on a tight schedule. Decorative pads at the mall’s entrances were installed after the new addition was opened. Crosswalks were completed in phases to minimize street closings. The concrete finisher was Smock Fansler.
An interesting tidbit about this work is that an all-female crew installed all of the curbing for this lifestyle addition.

Catty-cornered northwest of the Indiana Convention Center, the JW Marriott Art Plaza has become a city landmark and a tribute to Hoosiers statewide since its grand unveiling in March 2010.
The lifestyle center addition to the Greenwood Park Mall on U.S. Highway 31 North in Greenwood was completed in spring 2008. The project, which involved more than 1,000 cubic yards of concrete, is significant because it reflects the growing use of concrete in Indiana’s public spaces.
