Groundbreaking set for $280M mixed-use project in Michigan City

Officials in Michigan City will break ground Friday on a $280 million mixed-use development that includes two new Wyndham-branded hotels, as well as residential and retail space with views of Lake Michigan.

SoLa, named for its location "South of the Lake," will cover a total of 628,000 square feet of space and is billed as the largest development in the newly created Michigan City Transit Oriented Development District.

The project is being developed by YAB Development Partners, which says the development would have a major economic impact on the region to the tune of $680 million over 15 years.

SoLa is meant to take advantage of the $649 million South Shore Double Track project, which will add a second rail line between Gary and Michigan City, reducing commute times to Chicago by about 20 minutes.
