The northern Regional Cities region has three more projects funded from the $42 million pie.
A science center for teachers and students in Elkhart is getting $532,325. The money at the ETHOS Science and Robotics Center will be used for the K-12 Robotics program, according to WSBT.
The Mill at Ironworks Plaza in downtown Mishawaka is getting $5.26 million to help build luxury apartments, retail and restaurant space near Beutter Park. The total project is nearly $42 million, meaning the Regional Cities award makes up about 12% of the costs.
In South Bend, 10% of a $49.33 million mixed-use development at Commerce Center has been approved. $4.9 million is going towards luxury apartments, along with a future Martin’s grocery store and pharmacy.
These are the fourth, fifth, and sixth projects approved for northern Regional Cities funding so far.
