You've probably heard a lot of talk about mixed-use developments this year, and if you’ve driven N. Green Street lately, you know that construction is well underway on the site of the old St. Malachy church and school. The public-private partnerships between the Town and developers will transform the area into a pedestrian-friendly economic center. The investments totaling nearly $90 million will include office suites and a co-working space, luxury apartments, retail spaces, restaurants and a parking garage.

Town leaders and administration have worked on a master plan for the 10.5-acre area since the property was purchased in 2011. We wanted to establish a central gathering point in the north downtown to bring people into our community. The Town’s initial $2.4 million investment in the property purchase along with economic development incentives for those projects will be multiplied many times over.

Indianapolis-based Envoy Inc. is constructing a $4.8 million, 28,000 square-foot office building. The two-story Elevate Office Suites will include 115 individual suites, conference rooms, and a co-working space.

Flaherty & Collins’ $40 million, four-story project will include more than 200 luxury urban living apartments. Dubbed The Arbuckle due to its location, the 391,502 square-foot development will have first floor retail space and a 400 space parking garage.

Paragon Development will construct a retail/office project south of the Flaherty & Collins development with approximately 18,000 square feet of retail on the first floor and 17,000 square feet of office space on the second.

Additionally, the projects will aid in construction of infrastructure including underground stormwater detention, a new centrally-located Arbuckle Acres Park entrance, and parking. The property still includes an option for a possible future recreation center.

Across the street, construction of the $30 million Brownsburg Town Center on the east side of Green Street is underway. Scannell Properties is building a four-story development with 11,000 square feet of retail space on the ground floor and 170 luxury apartments above. The project will include a 212-space parking garage, which is being financed by the Town.

As a part of the downtown development master plan, the Town will make improvements to the surrounding infrastructure, including connectivity for pedestrians and bicycles. The redesign of N. Green Street will include a dedicated left-turn lane, sidewalks and bike paths. Plans are also underway to extend Enderly Avenue between Green and Grant streets for better east-west travel.
