Downtown Kokomo is where the magic happens. 
 
Welcome to downtown Kokomo! Our revitalized, historic downtown district invites you to visit our many shops, restaurants, attractions, and events - we know you'll enjoy your time here. 
  
MAKE YOUR HOME IN DOWNTOWN KOKOMO
 
 
 

Kokomo’s downtown is thriving. And with such a vibrant atmosphere downtown, many are choosing to make it their home. The downtown area continues to grow with housing options and businesses, making it easier than ever to find your place in downtown Kokomo.

Living downtown has its advantages. There are miles of walking and biking paths that connect the center of town with parks and attractions throughout the community. With a unique blend of locally owned restaurants and shopping nearby, a free public parking garage, the free City Line Trolley public transportation system, and a highly walkable downtown core, you'll get a variety of “big city” amenities in a “small town” atmosphere.

New housing developments in downtown

One of the new housing developments causing excitement in downtown Kokomo is 306 Riverfront District. A $32 million mixed-use development, it’s located on the site of the former Apperson Brothers factory.

This luxury apartment community will feature 6,800-square-feet of resort-style amenities, including heated pool with a deck and courtyard. The resort feel will be rounded out with a fire pit, outdoor kitchen, dining area, and decorative lighting and landscaping. Developers Flaherty & Collins hope to tie the development in closely with the nearby Kokomo Municipal Stadium, home of the Kokomo Jackrabbits. The stadium attracts about 4,000 spectators for home baseball games and other events.

Another project on the same downtown road is Lofts at Union Street. The lofts feature 35 units, including studio, one-bedroom and two-bedroom apartments with several different configurations. Sizes range from 700 to 1,100 square feet.

Several other apartments and town homes are popping up all over the downtown area, so if you're in the market for a unique space right in the heart of our great community, we're sure you'll find a space you can call home.
