A former Buehler’s IGA lot in Evansville is slated to become a new mixed-use development. Plans for Lofts on North Main call for a four-story building, which will feature 180 apartments and 15,000 square feet of commercial space in the city’s downtown.
The city says it hopes to fill the commercial space with a grocery tenant.
Representatives from the developer on the project, Indianapolis-based House Investments, say the area is a food desert and a grocery outlet would fill a great need in the area.
Apartment options would include studio, one and two bedroom housing.
The project is slated for a spring start, with the intention of closing ground in December.
Plans were detailed Wednesday at a press conference, which you can watch in the video below:
