A local developer got the green light from city officials to build three million-dollar homes on a surface lot south of Massachusetts Avenue in the Chatham Arch neighborhood.

park ave project 225pxThe Indianapolis Historic Preservation Commission approved the plans earlier this month from Dan Jacobs, who expects to break ground on the first house in the spring.

The vertical-style homes will be wider than a typical row house and will range in height from three to four stories with a loft level and a rooftop patio. Options include an elevator and state-of-the-art technology.

Jacobs bought the lot at the northeast corner of East North Street and North Park Avenue in May from an entity called North Lockerbie LLC.

Jacobs said he wants to provide an “urban living experience” by restoring the property to its original use, which was residential.

“This speaks volumes for the neighborhood,” he said. “There’s so much investment going on around me, this is just a small addition to the investment that’s been done by developers around the city.”

Jacobs’ portfolio includes several retail projects, as well as a few residential developments.

Rob Creviston is the architect on the current project with design consulting from Janie Jacobs, an interior designer and a partner at Jacobs Schneider Interior Design.

  1. I am so impressed that the smoking ban FAILED in Kokomo! I might just move to your Awesome city!

  2. way to much breweries being built in indianapolis. its going to be saturated market, if not already. when is enough, enough??

  3. This house is a reminder of Hamilton County history. Its position near the interstate is significant to remember what Hamilton County was before the SUPERBROKERs, Navients, commercial parks, sprawling vinyl villages, and acres of concrete retail showed up. What's truly Wasteful is not reusing a structure that could still be useful. History isn't confined to parks and books.

  4. To compare Connor Prairie or the Zoo to a random old house is a big ridiculous. If it were any where near the level of significance there wouldn't be a major funding gap. Put a big billboard on I-69 funded by the tourism board for people to come visit this old house, and I doubt there would be any takers, since other than age there is no significance whatsoever. Clearly the tax payers of Fishers don't have a significant interest in this project, so PLEASE DON'T USE OUR VALUABLE MONEY. Government money is finite and needs to be utilized for the most efficient and productive purposes. This is far from that.

  5. I only tried it 2x and didn't think much of it both times. With the new apts plus a couple other of new developments on Guilford, I am surprised it didn't get more business. Plus you have a couple of subdivisions across the street from it. I hope Upland can keep it going. Good beer and food plus a neat environment and outdoor seating.
