Construction is underway for the East Bank Flats apartment complex, which will stand 5 stories tall and include a pool on the rooftop. The building will sit on a lot near Colfax and Sycamore at the rear of East Bank Town homes.The first floor will host commercial space, while the remaining four floors will host apartments.

The project is scheduled to be completed in April of this year as construction has already been underway at a nearby factory, which helped expedite the construction schedule.

A key concept to understand with modular construction is that it is simply a delivery method rather than a different end product. The technology can be used to deliver everything from industrial facilities in temporary applications up to projects like East Bank Flats, an urban luxury midrise building that will occupy the top-end of the market. Situated on an urban infill site in downtown South Bend, street level retail will be constructed as a conventional podium atop which (4) levels of luxury condos and rooftop amenity space will be fabricated offsite and stacked in place. The building is engineered to support a rooftop lap pool, vegetated dog run, grill space, and sun deck.

The NBC affiliate recently toured Mark Line’s Bristol, IN facility to see the project in process. Watch video of the tour and read the entire article here:

Mark Line Industries along with Mosaic Capital Group continue to position themselves as leaders and innovators in the modular construction world. John Morrison, VP, Business Development, Mark Line Industries and Joe Blockno, Managing Partner, Mosaic Capital Group will be hosting educational sessions at the 2016 World of Modular Annual Convention and Tradeshow from March 17th t0 March 20th in San Diego, CA. Contact our sales department today and work with the group that other groups learn from!

From the Modular Building Institute:

“As modular construction has evolved from temporary facilities where blueprints for the ‘real’ building were stored, to a modern method used to construct even very complex buildings, the financial, development, design and construction aspects have similarly become more complex. Mosaic Capital Group and their family of companies, including modular fabricator Mark Line Industries, offer a unique and panoramic view of permanent modular construction (PMC) from the perspectives of every stakeholder involved in a PMC project. Mr. Morrison and Mr. Blockno will discuss the financial implications of modular construction and how it is viewed by typical lenders, REITs and private equity, the considerations of a developer, the perspective of the A/E/C team and their interface with the modular fabricator, and those of the end user, operator, or building occupant.”

Our urban density interim housing prototype fabricated for NYC OEM and FEMA with partners Garrison-Architects and AMSS was recently opened to the public for the Open House NY weekend (OHNY).  The fine folks at CurbedNY took a very detailed tour of the project and had many nice things to say.  Well worth your time to take the photo tour and read the article if you haven’t had a change to see it yourself.  Photos courtesy of CurbedNY and Evan Bindelglass.  Read more here.
