Unfinished History: The 1988 Canal Extension

This is the first post in what I hope will become a somewhat regular feature on Urban Indy. A few months ago, my coworker found this sketch of a proposed downtown canal extension, along with a Convention Center. In addition, there would be brick pavers all the way to the State Capital building from Monument Circle, and on through to the west. I’m unsure how far in the planning process this was. Google comes up empty on this one.

Incidentally, I’ve heard that there used to be a requirement for all downtown proposals to submit 3-dimensional views similar to this one. It would be nice to have something like that again if possible.
