LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) - Low-income apartments could take over a vacant, historic building in Lafayette.
The plans call for more than 40 apartments at the old St. Elizabeth School of Nursing building. Nine units will be reserved for people with developmental disabilities from the Wabash Center.
These are the same developers and managers behind Chatham Square.
The Area Plan Commission recommended approval for the project Wednesday night.
Area planners said based on the success of Chatham Square, this should be a good fit.
"It really is the identical situation that they have Chatham Square. There really is the same clientele, the same income levels, the same screening and management style. They're basicaly replicating Chatham Square in this building," said Ryan O'Gara, Assistant Director of the Area Plan Commission.
The proposal now heads to the Lafayette City Council for approval.
