The Hinge is a mixed-use building that is located at the “hinge” point between downtown Indianapolis, and trendy Fountain Square.  Placed directly  on the Fountain Square leg of the Cultural Trail, the hinge is in the heart of what is happening in Indianapolis.  Deylen used the most progressive and influential  young designers to help create the Hinge.  It has quickly become a landmark representing a new way of thinking about design in central Indiana. The Commercial space on the floor level of the building is home to Chilly Water Brewing Co., a local brew pub and eatery; The Rook, casual, contemporary Asian restaurant and The Bureau, Indy's Premiere Coworking space.  

The Murphy Arts Center 

The Murphy Arts Center is a 57,000 square foot multi-use commercial building with 27 tenants including 3 restaurants, retail shops, offices, artists and non-profit organizations. If something is happening in Fountain Square, its a good bet that it's at the Murphy.

Originally built in the mid 1880’s and 1920’s it is comprised of two buildings, one a commercial storefront with lodging on the second floor, and the other a vaudeville movie house. In 1951 the G.C. Murphy Company purchased both structures and combined them into one 57,000 square foot retail building with stockrooms and management offices on the second and third floors. In 1998 The Murphy Store ceased operations. The building was turned over to a local community development corporation for renovation into a center for the arts and business with retail spaces along Virginia Avenue. It flourished based upon owner occupancy, but by 2006 it began to decline. The building was rescued from foreclosure in September 2009 by local developers Larry Jones and Craig Von Deylen, now co-owners of the Murphy Arts Center LLC.

In the last two years, Fountain Square with the help of the new owners of the Murphy Arts Center has become a model of urban redevelopment with scores of new businesses opening.

The retail Tenants in the Murphy Arts Center include: The Red Lion Grog House; The La Margarita Restaurant and Tequila Bar; Pure Restaurant; and Heartland Truly Moving Pictures, a nationally known non-profit arts organization.

The second floor office tenants include numerous individuals and non-profit organizations such as People for Urban Progress (P.U.P.), and Primary Colours.
