Noblesville OKs $40 million upscale apartment project

Back to TopCommentsE-mailPrintBookmark and Share

Noblesville officials have signed off on preliminary plans for a $40 million upscale apartment project in the city’s massive Corporate Campus—effectively closing out such development there.

The development, dubbed Chapel Pointe of Meredith Meadows, would be located on 24 acres southwest of the intersection of Promise Road and Greenfield Avenue. Housing options in the 491-unit project would include $1,600-per-month townhouses, plus an array of 1-, 2- and 3-bedroom apartments renting for $800-$1,375 a month.

Indianapolis-based Marah Development now must work with city officials to finalize plans before construction can begin.

The property is part of a planned development with 3,600 acres of pre-zoned, shovel-ready land intended to attract commercial investment. About 20 percent of the campus was set aside for residential use.

Although there’s still some room for single-family development, Noblesville Planning Director Christy Langley said Chapel Pointe will occupy the last parcel available for multifamily housing. Apartments still could be included as part of a mixed-use project, she said.

Multifamily development has been booming throughout central Indiana, and demand remains strong. The Noblesville/Fishers area had an occupancy rate of almost 95 percent last year, local apartment brokerage and advisory firm Tikijian Associates said in its 2012 rent survey report.

“The market’s pretty good, but there are a lot of other projects in the works,” George Tikijian said. “I don’t know at what point that will have an impact [on the occupancy rate], but it will.”

More than 400 units are included in two projects already slated for Noblesville, according to Tikijian’s annual apartment overview, and IBJ reported last year that another 1,000-plus apartments are planned just south in Fishers.

Noblesville officials hope residential development attracts more businesses to the Corporate Campus, already home to growing companies like SMC Corp. of America and Helmer Inc.

“We want to create jobs, help our economy and make a better life for residents of Noblesville, if you will,” Noblesville Mayor John Ditslear said. “That’s going to take a while.”

  1. I never thought I'd see the day when a Republican Mayor would lead the charge in attempting to raise every tax we have to pay. Now it's income taxes and property taxes that Ballard wants to increase. And to pay for a pre-K program? Many studies have shown that pre-K offer no long-term educational benefits whatsoever. And Ballard is pitching it as a way of fighting crime? Who is he kidding? It's about government provided day care. It's a shame that we elected a Republican who has turned out to be a huge big spending, big taxing, big borrowing liberal Democrat.

  2. Why do we blame the unions? They did not create the 11 different school districts that are the root of the problem.

  3. I was just watching an AOW race from cleveland in 1997...in addition to the 65K for the race, there were more people in boats watching that race from the lake than were IndyCar fans watching the 2014 IndyCar season finale in the Fontana grandstands. Just sayin...That's some resurgence modern IndyCar has going. Almost profitable, nobody in the grandstands and TV ratings dropping 61% at some tracks in the series. Business model..."CRAZY" as said by a NASCAR track general manager. Yup, this thing is purring like a cat! Sponsors...send them your cash, pronto!!! LOL, not a chance.

  4. I'm sure Indiana is paradise for the wealthy and affluent, but what about the rest of us? Over the last 40 years, conservatives and the business elite have run this country (and state)into the ground. The pendulum will swing back as more moderate voters get tired of Reaganomics and regressive social policies. Add to that the wave of minority voters coming up in the next 10 to 15 years and things will get better. unfortunately we have to suffer through 10 more years of gerrymandered districts and dispropionate representation.

  5. Funny thing....rich people telling poor people how bad the other rich people are wanting to cut benefits/school etc and that they should vote for those rich people that just did it. Just saying..............
