A vote on the proposed mixed-use development 200 West has been scratched from the Zionsville Plan Commission’s March 20 meeting at the request of the petitioner.
200 West has been on the ZPC agenda since October 2016, but changes to the project led developers to ask for more time in November and again in January. As they approved the continuance at the January meeting, commissioners said that they would not grant a third one, and attorney Tim Ochs, who represents the developer, said he would not ask for that.
In a letter to the commission, Ochs stated that “at this time, the petitioner is not prepared to move forward with the project.”
“While the petitioner still intends to develop the site in the near future, this current petition has been pending for too long,” the letter continued.
Ochs did not respond to a request from Current for comment as of press time.
200 West is proposed on approximately four acres along Sycamore Street just south of Second Street. The 28,400-square-foot building is planned to include a restaurant and retail space on the first floor with office space on the second and third floors.
