Locally based Mann Properties is pitching retailers in Las Vegas this week on a couple of mixed-use developments slated for the north side:
  • A project with 132 townhomes and a retail strip called Creekside Shoppes would be built along 86th Street just west of Michigan Road. Noblesville CrossingThe plan calls for retail fronting 86th Street and townhomes to the south. Mann put the 20-acre site under contract last week and still must seek zoning approval.
  • Another project, Noblesville Crossing (pictured), would be built at the southwest corner of State Road 37 and 146th Street. Mann already has won approval for that plan, which calls for a 32,000-square-foot, two-story building with office and retail space, along with retail outlots.
  • An office building at Masters Crossing at the corner of 96th Street and Masters Road will serve as Mann's new headquarters, but the project could also include retail. Mann is considering another two-story retail/office building for a two-acre parcel at the corner.

  • UPDATE: Here's the rendering of Noblesville Crossing. What do you think?

    • It looks like a typical suburban office building. At least it's mixed-use, whatever.. The end reminds me of the ugly hotel proposed for the canal site. Is every development in Indy designed by the same firm? ;-)
    • Good eye Ablerock! That end definitely looks like the canal development. Of course, the canal development is 9 stories and isn't set back back from the street.

      I'm not familiar with the location of Noblesville Crossing, but sets this apart from 99% of suburban development?
    • Noblesville Crossing kind of reminds me of the strip mall at 116th and Keystone with offices on the second floor. I guess for Suburbia, this is good development.

    1. The $104K to CRC would go toward debts service on $486M of existing debt they already have from other things outside this project. Keystone buys the bonds for 3.8M from CRC, and CRC in turn pays for the parking and site work, and some time later CRC buys them back (with interest) from the projected annual property tax revenue from the entire TIF district (est. $415K / yr. from just this property, plus more from all the other property in the TIF district), which in theory would be about a 10-year term, give-or-take. CRC is basically betting on the future, that property values will increase, driving up the tax revenue to the limit of the annual increase cap on commercial property (I think that's 3%). It should be noted that Keystone can't print money (unlike the Federal Treasury) so commercial property tax can only come from consumers, in this case the apartment renters and consumers of the goods and services offered by the ground floor retailers, and employees in the form of lower non-mandatory compensation items, such as bonuses, benefits, 401K match, etc.

    2. $3B would hurt Lilly's bottom line if there were no insurance or Indemnity Agreement, but there is no way that large an award will be upheld on appeal. What's surprising is that the trial judge refused to reduce it. She must have thought there was evidence of a flagrant, unconscionable coverup and wanted to send a message.

    3. As a self-employed individual, I always saw outrageous price increases every year in a health insurance plan with preexisting condition costs -- something most employed groups never had to worry about. With spouse, I saw ALL Indiana "free market answer" plans' premiums raise 25%-45% each year.

    4. It's not who you chose to build it's how they build it. Architects and engineers decide how and what to use to build. builders just do the work. Architects & engineers still think the tarp over the escalators out at airport will hold for third time when it snows, ice storms.
