The $50 million Nexus Noblesville Apartments, developed by Cityscape Residential and managed by Praxm in Carmel, is well under construction at the northwest corner of Indiana 32 and River Road, on the former Marsh Supermarkets property in Noblesville.

The Levinson apartment building that opened earlier this month is just the first of several apartment projects that are planned to provide more living space in and around downtown Noblesville.

If you’ve driven through the city recently, you’ve likely noticed the apartments that are quickly going up on the former Marsh Supermarkets property just west of the downtown.

The $50 million Nexus Noblesville Apartments, developed by Cityscape Residential in Carmel in partnership with the City of Noblesville, will feature a contemporary architectural style with 287 luxury apartments in a total five buildings.

The community will offer a co-working space for residents with a coffee bar, wireless printing, wifi, conference and meeting rooms.

Like The Levinson, Nexus will cater to pet owners. The apartments will offer a pet park and pet-washing spa with tubs, showerheads, shampoo, grooming table and dryers.

Other amenities are expected to include a saltwater pool, on-demand fitness classes, outdoor living areas with grills, golf simulator and massage room.

Nexus will also cater to cyclists, with the apartment community’s indoor bicycle room with bike storage, bike loan program, maintenance and repair station. The apartments have trail access to the White River Greenway, a 2.85-mile trail that connects Potter’s Bridge Park with Forest Park, downtown Noblesville and Morse Reservoir.

The market-rate multi-family development is being constructed near the northwest corner of Indiana 32 and River Road, with an entrance at 7983 Stayer Drive, off of River Road, where Logan Street ends.

The apartments have used every bit of property and go almost right up to River Road, where there are shade and ornamental trees alongside the buildings lining River Road.

The development is less than one-half mile from Federal Hill Commons park and less than one mile from the Hamilton County Courthouse Square.

The land improvement will further the City’s goals to bring more residents to the downtown area to support local businesses and inject additional energy into the downtown’s momentum and plan for additional first-class office space in the downtown area, according to CityScape Residential’s summary report presented to the Noblesville Common Council a year ago.

The Nexus name may be familiar because Nexus was a sponsor of Noblesville’s Fourth of July celebration at Forest Park.

Opening in spring of 2022, the apartments will all feature stainless-steel appliances, granite countertops, walk-in closets, washer and dryer, designer lighting, wood-plank flooring and more.

The four-story apartments offer nine floor plans, which start off with a 502-square-foot Catherine studio (which is about the same size as the two-room 500-square-foot hotel rooms at The Embassy Suites in Noblesville and is smaller than the smallest floor plan at The Levinson). There are four one-bedroom floor plans, ranging from 675 to 793 square feet. Lastly, four two-bedroom floor plans offer a more spacious 1,025-1,123 square feet with bedrooms on opposite sides of the apartment, which is perfect for roommates.

Residents can use outdoor parking as well as a fully covered, secured parking garage.

A property management group called Praxm, of Carmel, led by founder and managing partner, MJ Trujillo, with a team made up of all females, is managing the apartments.

These aren’t the only apartments under construction or with plans for construction.

One of those apartment projects, Lofts on Tenth, is being built by Noblesville’s Darren Peck’s PT17 Development (co-owned by wife Monica Peck and Blake Anderson), under the name Xanderco LLC, a 31,700-square-foot project on 10th Street, between Clinton and Wayne streets. The two-building apartment will offer 23 apartments and is expected to complement the neighborhood.

A $47.9 million mixed-use development by J.C. Hart and Republic Development, will be built on the 3.4-acre area that currently houses McMillan’s Auto Care & Towing and the Hamilton County employee parking lot. The development will offer a four-story building, with ground-level retail space, and 219 apartments renting from $850 to $2,000 per month.

The City of Noblesville touts that all of these apartment projects will advance the City’s vision to offer more living space in downtown Noblesville.

These four apartment projects bring a total of 614 new apartments in Noblesville.

What do you think about all of these apartment projects and where do you think people will be moving from? And where will they be working?
