State Route 933 Corridor Study

Full CorridorProject Overview

The St. Joseph County Redevelopment Commission contracted with Abonmarche Consultants in 2019 to study the State Route 933 Corridor, a major gateway road that connects the State of Michigan to the City of South Bend. As the first step in a multi-stage strategic planning process, Abonmarche considered the current conditions of the corridor and made recommendations on how to better guide development and brand this route.

The Corridor is made up of 5 distinct districts (from North to South):

  1. Michigan Gateway District
  2. Darden North District
  3. Darden South District
  4. Roseland District
  5. Tri-Campus District

The Michigan Gateway District is made up of primarily retail and office uses with a few residential units directly along Sr 933. The retail in this area provides a specialized offering of construction materials and home improvement. The area is surrounded by strong residential neighborhoods and has several local attractions, including the Notre Dame LEEF Facility at St. Patrick's Park
