High-end apartment complex planned for Evansville's East side

EVANSVILLE, IN (WFIE) - An Evansville developer wants to build 175 high-end apartments in a 25 acre lot off Lynch Road, near Green River Road.

The project has cleared its first major hurdle.

The site plans call for 7 different buildings surrounding the existing lake on the property.

On Monday night, city council approved re-zoning the area to allow for apartment development.

The project still has a lot of hurdles to clear before construction can begin including the permitting process, drainage issues, and state road plans.
