Flaherty & Collins Properties Announces Ground Breaking of $45M Mixed-Use Development in Downtown Mishawaka

Mishawaka, IN – Flaherty & Collins Properties and the City of Mishawaka have announced the ground breaking of The Mill at Ironworks Plaza, a $45 million mixed-use, luxury residential apartment development in Mishawaka near Beutter Park. An official ground breaking ceremony will be held on Thursday, September 21, 2017, at 10am. The event will take place at 290 West Front Street, Mishawaka, IN 46544.

“This project will be transformational to our historic downtown,” said Mayor of Mishawaka, David Wood. “In our planning to redevelop the former Uniroyal properties, the City has remained committed to building a mixed use, architecturally significant and pedestrian friendly environment. This project which will cover two city blocks includes all of these elements.”

The Mill at Ironworks Plaza will consist of 232 luxury market rate apartment homes and 13,213 square feet of retail, including Stacked Pickle, which will serve as the anchor retail tenant of the project. Comprised of studios, one and two-bedroom apartment homes, the development will boast the finest amenities in the Mishawaka market.

The project received $5.26 million from the Indiana Regional Cities Initiative through the Indiana Economic Development Corporation (IEDC).

“Indiana is ranked first in the Midwest and fifth in the nation for business, and the Indiana Regional Cities Initiative is playing a key role in continuing this economic momentum by supporting efforts to retain and attract talent to the state,” said IEDC president Elaine Bedel. “The Mill at Ironworks Plaza will help continue to enhance downtown Mishawaka and increase social connectivity in one of north central Indiana’s urban cores.”

“We are very excited to partner with the City of Mishawaka and Indiana Regional Cities on this new mixed-use development, which we believe will be the destination for luxury urban living in Mishawaka,” says Brian Prince, Vice President of Development and lead project developer for Flaherty & Collins Properties.

Residents will enjoy nearly over 11,000 square feet of amenities. A second-floor amenity deck overlooking the St. Joseph River and Beutter Park includes a courtyard that will feature a bar, lounge areas, grilling station, activity lawn, art and movie wall, saltwater pool with a large wet deck, and bark park. Additionally, The Mill will feature a Maker’s Space, where residents can create artwork, a demonstration kitchen for hosting large group gatherings and meals, a gaming and study lounge, pet spa, bike storage and repair, and concierge services, including maintenance concierge. A 24-hour fitness center will feature Fitness onDemand®.

Apartments will include natural quartz and resin composite kitchen countertops, cultured marble vanity tops with integral sinks. Additionally, kitchens will feature stainless steel appliances, under mount faucets and sinks and LED lighting. LED lighting will also be present in entries, bathrooms and closets.

Additional project partners include Centier Bank, Eppstein Uhen Architects and First Financial Bank. Flaherty & Collins Construction is the general contractor.

The project, at 430,000 square feet, plans to be completed by the Summer of 2019.
