The estimated $150 million “You Are Beautiful” mixed-use multi-family development project aims to add new life and art to the area of West Michigan Boulevard near City Hall in Michigan City.

The location, current home to the Matthew Hoffman “You Are Beautiful” movable art installation, once housed the Police Department and former News Dispatch buildings before being torn down in 2017.

Plans for the project include: a boutique hotel with eight stories and 180 rooms, seven stories of multi-family living with 150 units, a parking structure with 324 spaces, rooftop hotel terrace and pool, space for restaurants and cafés and plazas to exhibit future Sculptfusion works of art.

The project is expected to bring 119 construction jobs, 167 permanent jobs and more than 65,000 expected annual guests within walking distance of the beaches, downtown restaurants and businesses.

The project is expected to begin in fall 2022.

Sure, a hotel sharing a parking lot with multi-family housing. That’s gonna work out well.

The people that come up with these ideas are morons.
