27-unit luxury condo moving forward after demolition at former Mulligan’s Bar property
SOUTH BEND, Ind. (WNDU) - A four-story luxury condo is set to begin development just east of Notre Dame’s campus.
Demolition crews made way for the new Sideline Flat at the former of Mulligan’s Bar. However, several neighbors at the surrounding condos were not too happy when they learned they’ll be backed up to the biggest building on their block.
After some conversation with the city and developers, however, it seems those concerns, much like that of Mulligan’s Bar, are gone.
Wednesday, South Bend said goodbye to the former bar as the city takes a mulligan on the property.
A four-story 27-unit luxury condo will take its place as one of the tallest structures to come to the district.
The original design planned to make the luxury condo five stories tall before residents spoke up.
“It was primarily around the height of the building as well as just some of the considerations with respect to the noise and the development itself during the construction period,” said Todd Stroup, the Jamison Residential HOA President.
Everyone met in the middle as the city updated its 3-story limit ordinance to allow the construction of 4-story buildings in this area and the developer dropped a floor from their plans.
“We were able to work together and reach an agreement and so we look forward to being good neighbors with them and wish them the best of luck with the development in the coming months,” Stroup said.
Addresses Unlimited is brokering the condos and while they said the development is the first of it’s size in the area, they don’t expect it to be the last.
Starting at $800,000 dollars, these units hope to attract Notre Dame alums back to their college town.
“Bringing them back to a place they have such fond memories of is important and I think this is a project that’s able to do that, yet still make it impactful for our own city,” said Addresses Unlimited broker Jen Arizmendi.
Unlike the one-story bar that used to sit here, the Sideline Flats plan on using every last inch of this 1.06-acre property.
“We are in a restricted site here obviously because we don’t have a lot of room to expand. We have to work with INDOT because we’re on State Road 23. We’re kind of landlocked by some other businesses so the best use for this site is really the height,” Arizmendi said.
