is waiting to hear from the city’s economic development team about how the city would participate in the $10 million project,
Mosko said. Renovating the 180,000-square-foot building would cost roughly $8 million, and the site needs about $2 million

Sandor Development of Indianapolis owns the former Levitz building, located

center. As the not-for-profit hospital system expands its reach to Muncie and Bloomington, Mosko said, the demand for space

If Clarian commits to the Levitz building, it would first convert about 100,000 square feet of the facility

on the site would grow to 400 over two years.
