LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) —A controversial low-income housing complex in Lafayette is one step closer to being built. Permits have been approved for city infrastructure to be installed for the Overlook Pointe Apartments project.
The project is located on the north side of Elston Road just east of new US 231. It's an area where there are already low-income housing complexes, including Romney Meadows.
As News 18 reported in January, Indianapolis developers Herman and Kittle Properties is building the $32,000,000 complex.
Assistant Public Works Director Bob Foley said the rest of the work will happen fairly quickly.
"We will issue at least the foundation releases. We are still talking about the buildings a little bit but they will have foundations in before winter and those will pop right out of the ground this winter," said Foley.
The low-income housing complex is supposed to have somewhere around 17 buildings with 248 units.
