Highland Row Developer Approved for $11 Million Permit
By Kate Simone
Milhaus Ventures' mixed-use Highland Row development will include 354 apartments, 35 townhomes, a parking garage and 26,000 square feet of retail space.
The developer of the mixed-use Highland Row project won approval for for an $11 million building permit from the city-county Office of Construction Code Enforcement.
Highland Row LLC, an affiliate of Indianapolis-based Milhaus Ventures, received the permit to construct a four-story, wood-framed building at 395 S. Highland St. The permit lists Milhaus Construction LLC as the general contractor.
The $61 million Highland Row project is slated to include 354 apartments, 34 townhomes, a parking garage and 26,000 square feet of retail space. The 395 S. Highland parcel has been the heart of the development since a church on the land was demolished several years ago. At the time, Highland Row was a project of Memphis-based Poag Shopping Centers, then operating as Poag & McEwen Lifestyle Centers, but its plans were shelved following the recession.
Milhaus has filed multiple permits since reviving the project last year. In October, the company applied for a $20 million building permit for construction of a four-story apartment building at 387 S. Highland. The next month, it applied for a $6.8 million permit toward the project.
Then, in late November, Milhaus acquired several vacant parcels totaling 13 acres along Highland and Ellsworth Street from an affiliate of Worthington Hyde Partners for $4.3 million.
