Former S.C.P.A. School Becomes Alumni Lofts Apartments

Soon, you’ll be able to see progress at 1310 Sycamore St., as the former School for Creative and Performing Arts begins to transform into the Alumni Lofts apartments.
Core Redvelopment LLC, a Indianapolis-based real estate company, is redeveloping the building into 142 apartments. To start the building’s transitiSCPAon from school to residences, Core Redevelopment selected Environmental Demolition Group LLC to handle the interior demolition of the Pendleton building. The Erlanger-based company is a specialty contractor for comprehensive environmental clean-up and specialized demolition services.
Shawn McGinness, president of EDG, said the building needs a complete interior gutting, as well as some asbestos and lead paint work. McGinness declined to disclose the cost of the demolition work but said it is a “significant” project.
Work on the demolition is scheduled to start in the middle of September. McGinness said this will be a four-month project. Part of the challenge will be to keep the building’s beautiful hallways, stairwells and fixtures, such as Rookwood Tile water fountains, while taking the classrooms back to the walls. One of the more difficult parts of the demolition will be taking out two swimming pools, one on either end of the fifth floor, McGinness said.
“That’s a little twist,” he said. EDG will have to remove the pools without damaging existing walls and floors and then shore up the area. In a couple weeks, demolition chutes will be going up outside the building as the work begins.
