Boiler Cribs

The developer of a mixed-use project on Northwestern Avenue has submitted new plans for that location.

Marc Muinzer previously proposed developments known as Boiler Cribs and the Landmark.

The biggest sticking point in both plans was parking.

Assistant director for the Tippecanoe County Area Plan Commission Ryan O’Gara says the new development, which doesn’t have a name yet, has 502 spaces instead of 295.

He says the structure remains six stories, but the number of bedrooms has been reduced from 600 to 558.

APC Rejects Boiler Cribs Complex Proposal

Purdue student and lifetime West Lafayette resident Cory Brewer says not moving forward with the project called 'The Landmark' hinders the future of his home and college town. 

"The Landmark will be a game changer," he said.  "The Landmark will be the first step in our dream, our dream together.  It's your time to dream where we want West Lafayette to be.  It's your time to make your mark."

Brewer was one of about a half dozen people who spoke in favor of the project last night before the Area Plan Commission rejected it by a 13-to-one vote.
