New plans for Northwestern Avenue development project

Owners of a property along Northwestern Avenue are revamping plans for a development there.

Stadium Capital LLC wants to construct an apartment complex across from Mackey Arena that also will have retail space.

The Tippecanoe Area Plan Commission rejected the company’s initial proposal earlier this year because of concerns primarily regarding parking.

However, assistant director Ryan O’Gara says the new plans fall more in line with the area’s makeup.  He says the downsized project is a more attractive option for the site.

The new version calls for fewer beds and includes a grocery store that O’Gara says would result in 110 jobs.

The APC is expected to announce its official opinion of the updated plans Thursday.

The commission is scheduled to vote on the project at its monthly meeting next week.
