The developer of a commercial project planned at State Road 37 and 146th Street is seeking a zoning change to add a 350-unit apartment complex to the mix.
TM Crowley Development LLC wants to rezone 25 acres of land northeast of the busy intersection to allow for multifamily uses. The 73-acre property—now vacant farmland—is zoned for general business uses.
Carmel-based Crowley also is asking the Noblesville Plan Commission to approve a preliminary development plan for the project, dubbed Conner Crossing.
A general site plan submitted with the request shows residential uses on the northern third of the property and retail/commercial uses closer to 146th Street. Three so-called outlots totaling almost 10 acres would line the east-west thoroughfare.
Crowley principal Tom Crowley did not immediately respond to an IBJ inquiry, but a project description included with the Plan Commission filing said the proposed apartment community would include as many as 352 units in 16 buildings, plus a clubhouse and maintenance facility.
Residential amenities include a “resort-style” swimming pool, fitness center, business center, car wash and “outdoor living area,” according to the description, provided by longtime Indianapolis-based multifamily specialist Sheehan Cos.
Sheehan’s Hamilton County holdings include Maple Knoll Apartments in Westfield and Lakeview Court Apartments in Noblesville.
A veteran commercial real estate developer, Tom Crowley left Gershman Brown Crowley Inc. last year to start his own firm. While with GBC, Crowley helped assemble land for Hamilton Town Center in Noblesville and developed the retail center in collaboration with Indianapolis-based Simon Property Group.
He is still working with the renamed Gershman Partners to finish The Bridges, a mixed-use project at 116th Street and Spring Mill Road in Carmel.
