The former Hilliard Lyons Building has been sold to the Kunkel Group, a developer of condominiums in downtown Evansville. We reported on the sale of this building a few months ago when the building was purchased by Jim and LaQuinta Schum. The Schum's had the intention to convert the Hilliard Lyons Building into commercial office condos. The Kunkel Group is completing work on remodeling and expanding the former de Jong's building at Third and Main streets into condominiums and commercial space. The $4.83 million development is now dubbed The Meridian Plaza. In 2006, The Kunkel Group began renovating the former JCPenney building on Main into condominiums. The building has been renamed The Renaissance on Main Street.
