Each pyramid has passenger cable elevators. All the three pyramids at College Park Indianapolis are connected via basement and ground level corridors.

A Short History of the Pyramids
In 1960s the college life insurance company was rapidly expanding. They needed more space to accommodate their growing staff. As a result, these pyramids were then constructed on a plan by Kevin Roche for which he was awarded Pritzker Prize. The plan was to build nine identical towers each containing 120,000 square feet area. Initially, three towers were constructed which took the form of pyramids. The original constructers had left the pyramids and they are now leased by Cassidy Turley Commercial Reality Services.
