Several major real estate developments in Carmel are expected to be completed in 2024, adding to the city’s lineup of projects combining residential, business and retail spaces.
The new construction continues Carmel’s rapid redevelopment over the past two decades.
Here’s a look at what’s coming to the Hamilton County suburb.

The 1.7-acre project, which was announced in late 2021, is being developed by Carmel-based Lauth Group at a projected cost of $47 million.
Restaurateur Chris Evans, who owns and operates Sangiovese restaurants at the Ironworks at Keystone complex on the north side of Indianapolis and in the Yard at Fishers District, plans to open a 5,300-square-foot restaurant called Tre (three in Italian) at 1st on Main.
Expected completion: February

The $85 million first phase of Proscenium was completed in 2021 on the northwest corner of South Rangeline Road and West Carmel Drive.

The top two floors of the building will house office and mixed-use space.
The development by Indianapolis-based developer LOR Corp. will also include 12 three-story, for-sale town homes with rooftop patios on the eastern portion of the site.
A construction issue in November led to the demolition of two elevator towers, but Carmel Redevelopment Commission Director Henry Mestetsky told the Carmel City Council this month that construction should still be complete by the fall.
