It was learned during a Plainfield Chamber of Commerce meeting that construction of The Barlow officially got underway Sept. 16.
The lone developer to speak was Shelby Bowen, president of Rebar Development, Fishers.
The Barlow is named after James Milton Barlow, a civil war soldier and notable business man who lived near the property.
Scheduled to open November 2020, The Barlow will be composed of 116 high-end apartments and 14 workforce housing units, with an additional 3,039 sq. ft. of commercial space.
It represents the first development to get underway that aligns with the town’s downtown redevelopment plan. It is being built at the corner of US 40 and Avon Avenue. An amenity of The Barlow will be a 2,500 square-foot fenced-in dog park.
Bowen said it would be a “fantastic place for our residents to live.”
