Grocer Almost in the Bag for New Porte Landing

(La Porte, IN) - More new construction appears on the way for New Porte Landing. 


The La Porte City Council has approved a request from Kensington Development to use an investment tax deduction made available within the city’s Urban Enterprise Zone.  The company is planning to build a grocery store on the northwest corner of New Porte Landing at Pine Lake Avenue and Truesdell Avenue.


Bert Cook, Executive director of the La Porte Economic Advancement Partnership, said the name of the grocer is not being released, as standard practice, until the project becomes official.  He said there are permits and other approvals are still needed before the 20,000 square foot structure can start going up.


He anticipates construction will begin in May.  “We’re excited about that and really looking forward to the start of construction out there,” Cook said.
