After seven years, the restoration of The Adler Lofts, encompassing residential and commercial units within the historic Adler Building, is complete. The collaboration that completed the project involved the efforts of Joey and Jeanne Markowski, Jimmy and Ashley Markowski, the City of Batesville, the HUD Main Street Grant, the Batesville Preservation Association, and additional contributors.

Owner and General Contractor Joey Markowski remarked, “There were numerous crews who braved the building, and I say with sincere honesty that there were moments during the first couple of months when we didn’t know if the building could be saved. But because of their hard work, expertise, and sheer will, we did save it.” The Adler Lofts endeavor brought together well over 100 workers from various businesses. 

He went on to thank the people who believed in saving this beautiful historic building, emphasizing the importance of preserving the history of the Adler building.
