In our Jan. 26 Insider newsletter, we shared some local development projects going on in and around Evansville. It did not come as a surprise that as soon as we posted the story, we knew we would have to share even more of the developments happening around the city. Here are four more projects we wanted to share!
1.) Emge’s Deli, Pizza, and Ice Cream
With our offices Downtown, the staff of Evansville Living has frequented Emge’s many times. So it was bittersweet to hear the news that the longtime Downtown establishment would be moving. On Feb. 18, Emge’s posted about the move on its Facebook page, citing plans by the owners of the building currently housing their location. The new spot will be in the Northbrook Shopping Center along First Avenue and Buena Vista Road. Emge’s last day Downtown will be March 19.
2.) Growth in the Promenade
Development along Burkhardt Road has been in full swing. If you’ve driven by The Promenade, you’ve probably seen moving trucks and crews hard at work. Computers Plus moved into its new spot earlier in February, now occupying 1414 Hirschland Road. Crumbl Cookies will be coming into the Lillian Plaza, occupying space with previously announced businesses such as Biscuit Belly and Jersey Mike’s Subs. And work has begun on the Easton Plaza spot where Chicken Salad Chick will occupy. Mister B’s also will get new neighbors at the plaza at 1340 Hirschland Road — Club 18, an indoor golf simulator, is expected to move in.
3.) Apartments at the former YMCA building
If you’ve made a trip down Northwest Fifth Street recently, you’ve probably noticed a lot happening at the former YMCA building. Construction crews have been inside, starting renovations on the building. When the project is complete, it will be the new home of 64 apartment spaces.
4.) Evansville Christian Elementary School
ECS continues to expand their campuses as work moves quickly on a new elementary campus located at the corner of Lincoln Avenue and Epworth Road in Newburgh, Indiana. The building will be the home of students in grades kindergarten through sixth grade and is expected to open in August 2021. February has seen walls beginning to be put up and concrete pours happening on site.
