Duplex project withdrawn

The company wanting to build a 178-lot duplex complex just outside of West Lafayette is withdrawing its request.

Scheumann Properties, LCC is no long moving forward with the project between Kalberer Road and County Road 500 North, which was scheduled for vote by the Tippecanoe County Commission, Monday.

The Area Plan Commission voted eleven to one in September not to support the proposal.

Neighbors in the area argued the type of project under consideration didn't fit with the makeup of the area.

Scheumann wanted the development to cater more toward young professionals and not necessarily students.

The company can present another proposal in the future.
