This mixed-use development in Whiting, Indiana for MVP Builders, LLC was designed by Vavrek Architects to fit into the City’s historic downtown while offering modern amenities and views of Lake Michigan. The 33,000 sq. ft., four story, mixed-use building contains 24 high-end apartments and approximately 6,000 sq. ft. of commercial and retail space on the ground floor mostly occupied by a medical center. We were testing the market to provide higher end apartments to create a more vibrant commercial strip and provide a product for a different lifestyle. Each unit has high end materials, 2 baths and 2 bedrooms, attracting a younger, urban demographic. As one of many new developments in the City, it complements Oil City Stadium and a $50 million lakefront improvement project. There is a party room on the top floor with a deck facing the lake.
