1930's home to be knocked down to make way for new student apartments

WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI)- Purdue's campus will see even more improvements in student housing.

During Wednesday night's Tippecanoe County Board of Zoning Appeals, all five variances passed to construct a new student apartment.

The existing structure is a home from the 1930's that is currently a duplex, which will be knocked down to make way for a brand new  apartment complex.

The new two-story building will house 10 units.

APC Assistant Director Ryan O'Gara said the project could get started pretty soon, but there is one concern.

"There's a vacant lot adjacent to them. The two lots are small enough that they probably should be combined to do a project of, you know, slightly greater significance," O'Gara said. "And by allowing this project to advance that sort of prohibits that possible future, and so it's quite possible that this empty lot next door could be empty for a long time."

The current structure is located at 234 Marstellar Street in West Lafayette, which is directly across the street from Purdue's horticultural Garden.
