Carmel City Center, IN
Woolpert partnered with a private development company to design a $60 million mixed-use development, The Proscenium, in a growing cultural center that is billed as the town’s new downtown.
The development will include 225 luxury one- and two-bedroom residential units and high-end amenities designed to appeal to the walkability and social needs of the millennial generation, including:
- A fitness club
- Bike centers
- Pedestrian plazas
- A coffee bar
- A tavern and nightlife activities
The Proscenium will also have 20,000 square feet of retail space and 60,000 square feet for office use, centered around a 1.8-acre public green space. A podium-style parking garage will be built beneath the development—maximizing amenities and avoiding an above-ground parking structure while retaining utility and accessibility.
When planning The Proscenium’s architectural details, Woolpert architects aimed to reinforce existing traditional and neoclassical aesthetics in the Carmel City Center while blending classically proportioned contemporary façades with historical ones.
Construction on The Proscenium will begin in early 2016 and is expected to take 18 to 24 months to complete.
