An east-side Indianapolis community development group plans to build more than 40 affordable townhouses near Wheeler Mission’s Center for Women and Children.

The roughly $14.7 million project from Englewood Community Development Corp. and its partner, Indianapolis-based Gratus Development, is expected to be built on 1.75 acres along the east side of LaSalle Street, between St. Clair and North streets.

Called Bridges Townhomes, the project’s plans call for 43 two- and three-bedroom for-rent residential units in seven buildings. Most of the units would be set aside for individuals and families making up to 60% of the area’s median income.

The remaining 11 units would be for permanent supportive housing—for families that have experienced homelessness and have received services through Wheeler Mission, which is a partner in the project.
