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. This is still my favorite Mexican restaurant in town. What I do love about the new version is it is much quieter than the most recent version. TV's were off, the music wasn't too loud, and the wait staff were not hyperactive like they had been the past few times I had been there. I just wish they would bring back the MOLE for the enchiladas!

  2. Not a bad paper. There is a need for local community news and city government issues. Don't really need the owner's constant national political rants. We all know where they stand by now.

  3. What nice people. Menard should've known better than to team up with the guy who robbed and drove Conseco to ashes. I'm surprised Timothy Durham isn't involved in this.

  4. Hello, I am Maris Peters, currently living in Texas city, USA. I am a widow at the moment with three kids and i was stuck in a financial situation in August 2014 and i needed to refinance and pay my bills. I tried seeking loans from various loan Companies both private and corporate but never with success, and most banks declined my credit. But as God would have it, I was introduced to a Man of God a private loan lender who gave me a loan of $65,000USD and today am a business owner and my kids are doing well at the moment, if you must contact any firm or company with reference to securing a loan without collateral , no credit check, no co signer with just 2% interest rate and better repayment plans and schedule, please contact Mr William David. He doesn’t know that am doing this but am so happy now and i decided to let people know more about him and also i want God to bless him more.You can contact him through his email: Davidloanfirm@yahoo.com

  5. It is beyond me how anyone can think this was a "bad deal" for the state! If they could take the money back then, yes, but they can't! Protections were built in the agreement. Now, if they roll the roads up and take them away, I will agree that it was a bad deal. Otherwise, the only way to have paid for the infrastructure that was badly needed was for the state to issue bonds....that is a four letter synonym for debt folks!!
