KENDALLVILLE — A first look at what could be a new three-story office building in downtown Auburn caught a lot of eyes this past week.
David Hefty, on behalf of 3:16 Real Estate LLC, has submitted a development plan for a building to house office and retail tenants at 200 E. 7th St., on the northeast corner of the courthouse square.
Credent Wealth Management would be the anchor tenant for a 30,000 square-foot building, according to the application. Hefty is chief executive officer and co-founder of the investment company, now based at 112 E. 7th St.
A public hearing on the application is scheduled during an Auburn Plan Commission meeting Oct. 13 at 6 p.m. in the council chambers of Auburn City Hall.
