WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) – A liquor store could soon be out and a five-story apartment complex could be moving in on Northwestern Avenue in West Lafayette.

The West Lafayette City Council is set to vote on the proposed $7 million development. The new complex would be located at the corner of North Street and Northwestern Avenue in West Lafayette, where a Bar Barry Liquor Store currently stands.

The project will have commercial space on the ground floor, with four floors of apartments above. The complex will hold 56 bedrooms spread over 44 units.

Plans call for the liquor store to be demolished this summer and construction to be complete by the fall of 2015.

The West Lafayette City Council will vote on the proposed apartment complex at its meeting on Monday.

Monday’s meeting will also address a sewer main extension project, which will provide service to developers around the new U.S. 231 corridor.
