NewPorte Landing development 'going well'


(La Porte, Ind.) - Holladay Properties' Portage office is amidst planning two new retail buildings totaling 15,000 square feet in the 17-acre region of NewPorte Landing that will be home to restaurants, retail shops, and medical-retail tenants.

“We’re pleased to report things are going well,” said Michael Micka, vice president of development for South Bend-based Holladay Properties.

Holladay representatives have been working with the Greater LaPorte Economic Development Corporation, the LaPorte Redevelopment Commission, the Community Development Partnership, and the City of LaPorte, Indiana since 2013 on the NewPorte Landing project, including providing consulting, remediation, and marketing services. The site was previously home to the Allis-Chalmers factories and involved extensive site remediation to make the land ready for development.
