(La Porte, IN) – Another new housing development has been announced for the city of La Porte.
Bert Cook, executive director of the La Porte Economic Advancement Partnership, said 60 or more housing units at or above market value are getting built at McClung Road and East Shore Parkway, close to Fishtrap Lake. About a dozen of the units will be inside town homes while the remainder will be in duplexes. Several professional offices are also part of the multi-million dollar development.
The city’s Urban Enterprise Association provided tax breaks over 10-years as an incentive for the development. The new housing is in addition to the 200 resort type apartments being built at New Porte Landing, near Clear Lake.
Cook said a need for more desirable housing in La Porte is attracting housing developers to the community which has a goal of increasing the population here from 22,000 to 30,000 by 2030.
