TERRE HAUTE, Ind. (WTWO/WAWV) — Tiffany and Mark Baker grew up on Terre Haute’s north side before moving away and moving back.
Now they’re using their love for renovating spaces to give a 97-year-old building on the corner of North 13th Street a fresh look.
“12 Points has always had a piece of our heart. Now that we’ve moved back it was our goal to own one of these big old buildings,” said Tiffany Baker of 3 Sisters Investments.
The building used to serve as a bank. Now, it will be called Parq at 12 Points.
“It’s big. It’s 10,000 square feet. But there’s five apartments upstairs. We’re going to renovate those and make them into a cool vibe of what we were used to in Denver, which was an industrial modern look,” Baker said.
The renovation of the building is just a small part in a big movement to improve 12 Points.
“So many people want to see this area be brought back to life again and preserve the historical nature of the buildings and transform them into something more modern,” said Jennifer Mullen-Perry, president of the 12 Points Revitalization Initiative.
The Bakers also hope their building will draw new business for the area.
“Our goal is to entice someone to want to open a brewery or something like that on the lower level of the building,” Tiffany Baker said.
But until then, the Bakers excited to keep things moving. They said it wouldn’t possible without community support.
The apartments are projected to be finished in the coming months.
