Verne Barry Place

47 posts in this topic

A little blurb in the Press today mentions that Verne Barry Place has received $500,000 from the Federal Home Loan Bank of Indianapolis. This residential project on Division will be mainly for special needs individuals, and will help fill the void left by the YMCA going condo. I was thinking it was going to be artists loft space too :huh:

Here's another mention on the project (I guess it includes the old hotels next door as well)

This is the only image I could find (tan building to the right is new, the red are existing).

On that same brochure that you posted, it show that Commercial Equipment is moving to Walker. Actually, the two companies, CEC and WS Reed, are sister companies of the same national company, Global Imaging. They are going to be housed in the same building now. Can you say "consolidation?"

CEC is currently located on Oak Industrial. This and other vacant land down that way are leaving quite a hole on Oak Industrial. It would be nice to see another company like Integra buy up a couple of those parcels and redevelop the north side of that street. Right now, it looks pretty empty and depressing when you drive that road.

Yes, Terra Firma did a nice job with the Integra Printing project and the one next door after that food processing plant left. If Rapistan can get its act together, they could maybe expand in that area.

Rapistan (or, as they are currently being called since December, Dematic) is in the process of moving the entire engineering group from Detroit to the GR location. Bringing a lot of automotive engineering talent back to GR. Supposed to be completed by the summer. Watch for other announcements!

Woo Hoo! Looks great! But I'm not exactly sure where on S. Division this is supposed to go. Are they talking about that empty space next to the bikini bar?

So, there will be a new five-story building as

well as renovation of three historic buildings

(maybe the ones pictured in the rendering)?

The copy is different than the drawing depicted -

anyone have a rendering of the new construction portion?

Does it maybe sound as if the covered parking is part of

the new building itself, and not surface covered parking?

The red portion is actually 3 buildings. The tan is new. Mrknowitall has the drawings I hear :ph34r: He might know where the parking is.

to see the rest of it. :blush:

Driving on S.Division between Oakes & Weston (east side of Division), it looked like a building was razed or at least a surface lot dug up. There are concrete barriers blocking off one lane. It seems pretty recent.

Does anyone know if and what was razed?

A parking lot.

Oh great. Are they just re-surfacing it?

I was getting excited thinking something nice would go in.

I never get down that strech, so I am unfamiliar with what was there.

Looks like a nice development. They earn some browny points from me for the second phase of the project which is to restore and preserve the buildings next door.

BTW: When did DTS Winkelmann get a website?

5-6 months ago, maybe?
