TERRE HAUTE, Ind. -- Officials are planning to shut down a low-income housing center at a nearly century-old building that was originally a hotel in downtown Terre Haute.

The 109 units at the former Hotel Deming would be replaced with a $15 million renovation of a closed elementary school being considered by the Terre Haute Housing Authority.

Agency executive director Jeff Stewart tells the Tribune-Star that the move is expected to happen in about two years.

Officials say the project would give residents larger units and more access to outdoor space than is available at the downtown location. The agency will look to sell the eight-story downtown building that it has operated since 1979.
