A proposed apartment complex project promises to bring new life to South Bend’s old Ward Baking Company building.
The massive brick building dates back to 1919 and most recently housed Ford distributing. The $8.5 million plans call for creating 65 affordable apartment units there.
A tax abatement request for the project goes before the South Bend Common Council at Monday night's meeting. The fate of the project ultimately depends on the receipt of state rental housing tax credits.
A final decision is expected in February.
