A new modern urban event center promises to bring excitement to Elkhart’s River District this fall. The LEX 530 Metropolitan Event Center will offer a space like no other for Michiana residents and visitors. The bright, eclectic center will have an urban vibe with eight large windows and 18-foot barreled ceilings. Located on the east side of the Elkhart River, the space will take advantage of the natural beauty of the newly revitalized River District.
Carl and Emilie Tiedemann developed LEX 530 in their building at 530 E. Lexington Avenue in downtown Elkhart. Carl Tiedemann is the founder of The Tiedemann Group of companies which has an array of real estate, construction and wine distribution companies including Tiedemann Wines, Glenwood Cellars Wines, FM Stone Commercial and FM Construction.
“Emilie and I are especially excited to create a much-needed space for the community to come together because Elkhart is our home, where we built our business and raised our family,” said Carl Tiedemann, Founder of LEX 530 in addition to Tiedemann Group and Tiedemann Wines. “We’re thrilled to be part of the River District’s revitalization.”
The beautifully designed space will accommodate everything from intimate gatherings in a special private dining area to large soirées in the event center’s main room. Corporate events, weddings, not-for-profit galas or private family parties are all perfectly suited for LEX 530.
In addition to special events, the center’s plans include a wine club that will host various tasting events, wine dinners and cooking classes as well as community events.
“We are excited to open this fabulous inviting space and look forward to our guests creating some wonderful memories here at LEX 530,” said Lou Ann Welsh, LEX 530 Director.
LEX 530 is officially open. The ribbon cutting with the Elkhart Chamber was on Monday November 12th. Reservations are now being accepted for holiday parties, weddings and special events.
