WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) — You can expect more construction in West Lafayette as Purdue prepares to begin work on the next phase of its $1 billion west campus project.

Purdue Research Foundation recently unveiled plans for a mixed use neighborhood Provenance. It's just one of many developments happening in the heart of Discovery Park.

"We're working to build a live-able, build-able, walk-able kind of community," said Director Jeremy Slater. 

Provenance is the district's fifth major project announced in the past two years.

"We're looking at roughly 500 units of town homes, multi-family homes, single-family, condos," said Slater. The community will also have a fitness center, restaurants, retail, a day care and a preschool all in the heart of discovery park.

"It's about 400 acres -- it's about a 1.2 billion dollar development over the next 20 to 30 years."

Slater said as existing industries grow and new ones move in, the project becomes more important.

"A number of different corporate tenants who want to be apart of the community with them moving into the community to work now they have a place to live."

Living in Provenance won't be their only option though, Slater said 250 luxury apartments and 15,000 square feet of street-level commercial space along State Street is also in the works.

That's along with Aspire at Discovery Park, an $86 million, 835-bed apartment complex set to open in August.

"The moment that you turn onto State Street from 231 the entire frontage along state street is going to be under construction," said Slater adding those roadblocks will eventually lead to a more accessible community.

"Walk to work and drop your kids off at a daycare or pre-school and then for dinner walk and grab food or a coffee and just spend time with a community."

Work on the Luxury Apartments is set to begin this fall and will take roughly two years to complete. Provenance has a slightly different time line, developers are meeting with Tippecanoe County area planners to get through zoning regulations. 

Following that, the plan is to begin infrastructure work including roads and landscape in the fall. Once that is in place, houses can start going up. 

More information on Discovery Park as well as the master plan for the area can be found here.

Provenance is being developed by Old Town Design Group of Carmel. The group has developed a number of award-winning neighborhoods like this throughout central Indiana.
