Domo Development Company LLC and the Downtown Evansville Development Corporation (DEDC) presented an update on the redevelopment of the block at 5th & Main to the Evansville Redevelopment Commission on Tuesday, Nov. 17.
The pictured renderings show the planned developments of two new buildings that are in the works for the area, where both the 420 Main Street building and The Sycamore Building currently stand.
The two projects will feature ground floor park-oriented commercial space for restaurant and small-scale food businesses, along with additional commercial space facing Sycamore.
The two new buildings will contain:
- 126 apartments
- Approximately 48,000 sq. ft. office space
- Approximately 50,000 sq. ft. ground floor space
- 113 underground parking spaces with the remaining parking served by the City parking garage at 5th & Sycamore
- A rooftop deck on the six-story building at the corner of 5th & Main
A redeveloped park will be located to the south of the building at 5th & Main. Large doorways and windows will provide a high degree of connection from the park and sidewalks to the ground-floor restaurants creating unique indoor-outdoor dining experiences.
While no demolition/construction timelines are currently available for the project, Candace Chapman with DEDC said that implosion was being considered as a method of demolishing the 420 Main Street building and The Sycamore Building.
