APC approves two new apartment complexes

The Tippecanoe Area Plan Commission must take another vote on a proposed 206 unit apartment complex just outside of Lafayette.

Commissioners voted seven-to-five to deny the project on Veteran’s Memorial Parkway and U.S 231, but eight votes are required to move forward.

APC staff is pushing for denial because they say the proposed development represents residential sprawl.

The commission did approve two other apartment projects. 

Members voted ten-to-two in favor of a complex along Northwestern Avenue in West Lafayette’s New Chauncey Neighborhood.

The development will be three stories and include 14-units.

Area Plan Commission staff says the project sets the tone for what type of development is appropriate on that block.

Commissioners also signed off on an 32-unit complex on Hilltop Drive on Purdue’s campus.

The complex will serve as a campus ministry outreach of the Salt and Light Christian Fellowship to mainly international students.
