Developer intends to bring hint of 'Wrigleyville' to Chatham Arch neighborhood

June 13, 2013

Jacobs development rendering 225pxA local developer plans to build three single-family homes on a surface lot south of Massachusetts Avenue in the Chatham Arch neighborhood. While that might not seem unusual, the designs are. “It’s something you may see in a Wrigleyville-type neighborhood in Chicago, or maybe a Georgetown out in Washington, D.C.,” said Dan Jacobs. He bought the lot at the northeast corner of East North Street and North Park Avenue on May 31 from an entity called North Lockerbie LLC. The vertical-style homes will be wider than a typical row house and will range in height from three to four stories with a loft level and a rooftop patio. Each residence will be equipped with an elevator and state-of-the-art technology regarding the functionality of the home. Ross Reller, director of land services for Colliers International’s Indiana region, brokered the sale of the land. “[The city] wanted us to sell this for new development and not for new parking,” he said. “That’s not what the city wants on the corner.” The design of the first home [above] is conceptual, and the project still needs to be approved by the Indianapolis Historic Preservation Commission. Jacobs said the design will be more contemporary rather than a historic brick-and-limestone look. Rob Creviston is the architect with design consulting from Janie Jacobs, an interior designer and a partner at Jacobs Schneider Interior Design.
