Law Firm Will Anchor Class A Offices Coming to South Bend

KTGY Architecture + Planning is designing the Barnes & Thornburg Building, a mixed-use office development in downtown South Bend, IN that will be anchored by law firm Barnes & Thornburg LLP.

Co-developed by Great Lakes Capital, Bald Mountain LLC and Norris Equity Partners, the five-story project at 201 S. Main St. will mark downtown South Bend’s first Class A office project in nearly 20 years. The law firm will occupy floors two through four.

Now under construction, it is scheduled to deliver in summer 2021, bringing 35,531 square feet of office space and 6,537 square feet of street-level retail to the intersection of Main Street and Jefferson Boulevard.

“We were inspired to design a building that would fit into any of today’s great cities, celebrating the continued growth of South Bend as a vibrant downtown,” said Craig Pryde, principal at the Chicago office of KTGY.
