A brand new $9 million office building may be in the works for a vacant site at Main and Jefferson in downtown South Bend.
Elkhart-based Hansell River Park Leasing Corp. is working with Great Lakes Capital to develop the five-story building. Plans show retail and restaurants on the first floor, office space on floors two through five with the top floor becoming occupied by Hansell’s startup company. This would be the first new office construction in downtown South Bend in more than two decades.
The city council gave the first of several approvals at their meeting earlier this week.
