Pulte Homes of Indiana LLC has proposed building 28 single-family homes along 131st Street just east of the Boone County line in Carmel.
The developer has requested the city rezone approximately 22 acres on the south side of 131st Street west of West Road from the S-1 residential zoning classification to a planned unit development district.
The property is adjacent to upscale subdivisions to the north and west and more spacious and bucolic estates to the east and south.
The city approved the rezone at a meeting on May 21.
The subdivision, called Copperleaf, would consist of 29 homes and be developed in a single phase. The land is mostly vacant except for a farmhouse on the north end of the property, which would remain and be the 29th lot in the subdivision.
Details about how much the homes would cost are not included in public filings. Pulte Vice President of Land Acquisition David Compton told IBJ he would provide more details once the rezone request is approved.
One-story homes in the subdivision would be required to be a minimum of 2,400 square feet, while two-story houses would need to be at least 2,700 square feet.
All homes would be required to have a full basement and a three-car attached garage, documents state.
No vinyl or aluminum siding would be allowed, and each front facade would be required to have at least three windows.
The homes would vary in overall design, due to an anti-monotony standard written into the planned unit development.•
