Our initial signature projects are only the beginning for citywide growth. Great cities are as strong as their downtowns — and ultimately all the inclusive and innovative solutions that surround. These projects represent the seeds that will spread growth through building our resilience, credibility and investment interest with diverse businesses and quality of life investors of all types, who understand our commitment to revitalizing Elkhart.
Elkhart River District
This district is expected to surge an urban vision with economic energy into expanding Elkhart's downtown to match the trends of other thriving urban environments -- and to make Main Street’s surrounding neighborhoods vibrant once again.
Stonewater at the Riverwalk
Stonewater at The Riverwalk consists of 200 luxury market rate apartments, five townhomes, and over 7,000 square feet of retail. Comprised of studios, one and two bedroom apartment homes, the project boasts the finest amenities in the Elkhart market. The development, at 237,337 square feet, is on the site of the former Elkhart Foundry.
Elkhart Health & Aquatics
This 170,000 square foot facility, owned by the Community Foundation of Elkhart County and Beacon Health System, offers a world-class aquatics competition center, Beacon Health and Fitness, and the Commons community gathering space.

River Point West by Great Lakes Capital begins construction June 2019 and will consist of a new 42,000 square foot Martin’s Super Markets store, 6,000 square feet of additional ground floor retail, and 172 apartments along the river.
The Hotel Elkhart was built in 1923 and was once known as "Northern Indiana's Finest Hotel." It later served as an apartment building. The renovation project will return the building into a 93-room boutique hotel with a regionally-branded cafe, taproom/bar, and a breakout meeting space. The Athenian Ballroom on the 9th floor will also be completely renovated with a rooftop deck.
