Project Near South Bend Stadium Set to Break Ground

Posted: Updated:

Officials in South Bend will break ground next week on the $22 million mixed-use development near Four Winds Field. The Ivy at Berlin Place, which is being developed by South Bend Cubs Owner Andrew Berlin, will include 120 apartments and 10,000 square-feet of retail space.

After receiving approval for the project from the South Bend Redevelopment Commission in August, Berlin called the project a "natural progression" for the team and city. Some of the one- and two-bedroom apartments in The Ivy at Berlin Place will feature views of Four Winds Field.

"Excitement in this part of downtown South Bend has been building every year for the past five years," said Berlin. "We like to be first. And we always like to be in the best location. There’s no question, this is the part of downtown that people come to from a hundred miles in every direction. What we’re building is something that I will personally be proud to call home myself when I’m here for games. It’s in the best possible place. And it’s the first."

The facility is being constructed by Indianapolis-based TWG Development LLC, which hopes to have the project complete by the spring of 2018. Berlin says, when the project is complete, he and all new and future residents will have their names engraved on brick pavers outside the stadium walls.

Berlin will join South Bend Mayor Pete Buttigieg, South Bend Regional Chamber of Commerce Chief Executive Officer Jeff Rea and other officials for the ground breaking ceremony, which is scheduled for 11:30 a.m. on March 22.

After founding two nonprofits, Musical Family Tree and the Speak Easy, as well as serving on several nonprofit boards...
