WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) - Demolition is underway to bring new apartments to Wabash Landing in West Lafayette.

Storefronts behind Scotty's Brewhouse have been empty for years. Now, they're being torn down to make way for new apartments.

The city council approved the proposal back in August of 2016. The plans call for more than 100 single-bedroom apartments.

Director of Development Erik Carlson said these apartments are not aimed for Purdue students, but more for young professionals.

"We really need to start seeing housing stock for more than just the students in West Lafayette and that's something that we anticipate this being," said Carlson. "Right across the river, in Lafayette, the Marq's getting ready to come online. So, that's fantastic because it's going to be able to bring an element that we don't currently have."

The apartments should be complete in 2019.

Also, work in that area off State Street should be complete in the next few weeks.
