225 Northwestern project gaining popularity

WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) – The West Lafayette Redevelopment Commission is excited about what a new apartment complex will bring to the city.

The Area Plan Commission and West Lafayette City Council have already been presented plans for a complex at 225 Northwestern Ave., where Bar Barry Liquors currently sits.

On Wednesday, the commission approved an agreement to rebuild the sewer line in the area. It will not only service the complex, but also buildings around it. The agreement is capped at $150,000.

The Commission and Development Director Chandler Poole said this is an easy project to get behind.

“In the area when [the sewer line] was first put in, there were single-family homes,” Poole said.  “Now, you have higher density, multi-family projects there. So, improving the infrastructure to allow for higher density projects, and increase the tax base is definitely a good move for the Redevelopment Commission.”

The liquor store will be demolished in July, and the sewer work will begin after that. The complex should be complete by fall 2015.
