Police seek ID in Merrillville gas station armed robbery suspect | Crime and Courts | nwitimes.com
Armed robberies seem to be commonplace in Merrillville now. After a couple years of not being intellectually honest about it, I will say that Merrillville is in decline.

Unhappy Unfortunate

Even though it was not a very large development, it would have been nice and unique for that area. On the one hand, I definitely agree with the developer that it is not worth pursuing if little to no profit would be made...on the other hand, it is nice to see that Merrillville is sticking to its standards and I feel the requirements they had were reasonable and had this been any other suburban community, they would have demanded at least the same standards and likely higher. Merrillville may need some nicer developments but they are as desperate as many folks think (including how I used to think).

Thumbs up Positive Things

New home construction considered in older established Merrillville neighborhood

I actually drove past the home that NuBlock recently completed there. It is an average suburban two-story home but it is actually a great and quiet neighborhood in the northwest part of town. With its seclusion while also being convenient to Griffith, Schererville, and Highland, I think it may do well! I do wish some of the other properties in that subdivision were kept up a little better but overall, I have noticed a TON of flips going on in Merrillville which really has improved the image of many of the older neighborhoods. North Merrillville has a lot of solid older housing stock and seeing them brought back to life is promising. I wish NuBlock Construction the best success in their building in Lakewood Estates! I hope they will do more infill projects in Merrillville as well!
