Valparaiso Technical Institute
VALPARAISO | The old Valparaiso Technical Institute building at 1150 W. Lincolnway could become a home for artists and entrepreneurs if the plans of three residents come to fruition.
VALPARAISO | One major storm sewer project is about to begin, and a smaller one is expected to get approval soon despite bids that were higher than expected.
VALPARAISO | With a total bid almost $250,000 below its nearest competitor and $671,717 lower than the engineer's estimate, G.E. Marshall was an easy choice to do the second phase of the Chautauqua Park flood control project Tuesday.
VALPARAISO | As bids for the second phase of the Chautauqua Park flood control project were opened at Tuesday's utilities board meeting, the numbers started out good and got better.
VALPARAISO | The first phase of the Chautauqua Park stormwater control project is complete and succeeding, and the city's Utilities Board hopes to begin the second phase this spring.
VALPARAISO | The second phase of the Chautauqua Park stormwater relief project has spawned a petition battle to save the trees next to the old Valparaiso Technical Institute property.
VALPARAISO | Mirrors line a wall on the top floor of One Center Street. The windows, draped in yards of white fabric, are new. But the wooden floor, with planks pulled up here and there, is a sign of continued change going on from basement to ceiling in the three-story brick building.
VALPARAISO | It's a case of detention basin deja vu.
VALPARAISO | The plans are done, and the city is in the process of acquiring the land needed for the massive Chautauqua Park stormwater relief project.
VALPARAISO | Passengers have long since stopped getting off at the train depot next to the Canadian National tracks on North Calumet Avenue, but preservationists are hoping to save the century-old station from the wrecking ball.
VALPARAISO | The items cluttering much of the space in the former Valparaiso Technical Institute look like they should be in a museum or the world's biggest garage sale.
VALPARAISO | The three-story, grayish-brown building at the corner of Lincolnway and Center Street has been many things over more than a century of its existence. What it will be, or if it will be, in the future is uncertain.
VALPARAISO | Driving past the former Valparaiso Technical Institute building on Lincolnway, it's easy to see the contrasting possibilities for the historic structure.
VALPARAISO | The former Valparaiso Technical Institute building might be an eyesore, but to many of the institute's graduates it still is the Emerald City of their educational life.
VALPARAISO | The eyesore formerly known as Valparaiso Technical Institute got a financial boost Wednesday from the city's Redevelopment Commission.
City agrees to make it eligible for grant program
