If views are what you're looking for the next time you consider searching for a new home, Downtown South Bend will have some new options.
Friday morning developers broke ground on the new River Race Townhomes near the corner of Jefferson and Niles Avenue, across from the emporium.
The ten unit building will have two and three story townhomes, ranging from 1,600 to 6,000 square feet and starting at $225,000.
Each will have a view of the waterfall at the East Race and of Downtown South Bend.
“The reality of it is that without customers businesses are going to move where their customers are. So what we need to do to really fix South Bend is get people living near or in downtown,” says Townhome Developer David Matthews.
The first residents are scheduled to move in by Christmas.
