Kite Realty Group broke ground this week on Eddy Street Commons, a mixed-use village adjacent to the campus of Notre Dame in South Bend. The 24-acre project calls for 90,000 square feet of retail, 268 apartments, 75,000 square feet of office space and a 1,300-space parking garage. Kite also plans to build condos based on market demand and two Marriott hotels in partnership with White Lodging Services Corp.
Lauth, meanwhile, is planning a giant mixed-use center next to Bradley Center, home of the NBAâ€™s Milwaukee Bucks. The concept calls for more than 500,000 square feet of retail on 12 acres. The multi-level development also has a parking garage and space for dining and entertainment venues. Future phases of the project could include high-rise office, hotel or residential towers.
