As reported by WTHR:
WTHR has learned the city of Kokomo is about to build a new upscale apartment complex in the heart of downtown – part of a “dramatic transformation” of downtown Kokomo that will be officially announced next week.
“This is a really aggressive project, and we can’t wait to get going,” City of Kokomo development specialist David Tharp told WTHR. “A lot of folks have a view of what Kokomo was, and we’re about to show what it is and what it can be.”
The project will transform a 100+ year old building into 178 apartments designed to attract professionals who currently commute to Kokomo from outside the city. The site is the former home of Northern Indiana Supply Company (NISCO) and Haynes-Apperson car company which has been vacant for years.
