Designed by the prestigious architectural firm, Vonnegut & Bohn, the building at 800 North Capitol Avenue was originally home to the Kahn Tailoring Company.  Kahn produced mainly suits and military uniforms in the Indianapolis facility until the company was sold in the Mid-20th Century.  Following several sales, the building fell victim to decades of deferred maintenance and poorly executed modifications.  This unfortunately left the building with a crumbling concrete frame, delaminating brick veneers, non-funtioning egress systems, environmental contamination, and a missing fire suppression system.  An intimidating project to undertake.  DKGR produced plans and detailed exhibits outlining repair, renovation and restoration to aid in the procurement of tax credits, both Historic and Income-based, to help bolster the budget the project would desperately need.  After obtaining the sometimes finicky approval of the National Park Service, the project shuddered to life, throwing off years of neglect to become a model of the historic restoration and preservation process.  800 Cap, as it is currently known, now houses 112 apartment units with a landscaped courtyard, roof deck, fitness center and other amenities.
