LEVEE PROJECT GETS OK FROM WEST LAFAYETTE, BREAKING GROUND IN 2024
In negotiations between developers and West Lafayette officials since 2020, a project that would plant two, seven-story buildings near the corner of State Street and River Road, redrawing street patterns in the Levee area in the process, will break ground in early 2024.
The West Lafayette City Council voted 6-0 to rezone more than five acres on the northeast side of the intersection, clearing the final stop for a project that is drawn with a mix of 590 apartment units, up to 1,350 beds and 21,700 square feet of ground-floor retail space.
“This is what they call in cliché world a game-changer,” West Lafayette Mayor John Dennis told city council members. “The Levee’s always been an area that’s been targeted. We were patient. And now we’re fortunate enough to have the right kind of growth.”
Beau Pahud, of the Indianapolis-based Landmark Properties, said the plan is to have the buildings ready for occupancy in fall 2026.
First up, businesses in a handful of properties will have to figure out where to move.
