A downtown South Bend development is ready to open tomorrow. A ribbon cutting will take place for the Studebaker Lofts. That’s 46 luxury homes in the historic JMS Building in downtown South Bend. Bradley Company and Great Lakes Capital are behind the project. And we’re told several people have already signed leases.
Over the coming weeks, South Bend’s Board of Public Works and Redevelopment Commission will consider a series of development deals with Beacon Health Systems and Great Lakes Capital which could revitalize that whole area. Plans that were first announced in 2021 are nearing fruition in a project that is poised to bring in 200 apartments, a 100-bed hotel, retail and office space and more parking.
