Sidewalk and street updates are set to accompany a large building project in West Lafayette.

Developers of the 720 Northwestern Avenue project say they need more road space for a truck loading dock. The building will be home to a convenience store, a grocery store, and apartments, along with underground parking.

West Lafayette Public Works Director Dave Buck says the change is being proposed because deliveries will be coming in on bigger trucks than anticipated.

720 Northwestern Avenue project moving forward

Jan 4, 2013

Progress is being made on a West Lafayette planned development on Northwestern Avenue across from Mackey Arena. A proposal for the 720 Building received final approval from the Tippecanoe County Area Plan Commission.

West Lafayette Director of Development Chandler Poole says city officials have had a hand in the project since its beginning stages.

WL rezoning issues on city council agenda

Jul 2, 2012

West Lafayette officials are considering three rezoning ordinances for planned developments in the city.

The projects include a residential building on the corner of Chauncey and Harrison and mixed use properties on Northwestern across from Mackey and at the State Street intersection. Council members discussed the ordinances at a precouncil meeting Thursday.

District One councilor Eddie VanBogaert says the State Street Corner project is good, but not perfect.

APC recommends NW Ave. complex

Jun 21, 2012

A planned development along Northwestern Avenue across from Mackey Arena is “more subdued” than previous proposals.

That’s according to Tippecanoe Area Plan Commission Assistant Director Ryan O’Gara.

He says Stadium Capital LLC’s plan to build a mixed-use facility on the site falls more in line with the area's makeup than a project that was denied in February.

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 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.

Developer updates proposal for The Landmark in WL

Dec 29, 2011

Updated preliminary plans for a new retail-apartment complex in West Lafayette could go before the Area Plan Commission as soon as next month.

The project, known as The Landmark, is proposed for Northwestern Avenue, across from Mackey Arena and Lambert Fieldhouse.

Developer Marc Muinzer wants to build a 6 story building with nearly 38,000 square feet of retail space and 250 apartments containing 600 beds. The current proposal has 295 spaces and 14 on-street parking spots on Evergreen.
