As the first model homes of Westfield’s Harmony development will open soon, Paul Estridge Jr. and Jay Farmer have announced a partnership with T.M. Crowley & Associates to develop the retail component of the new community.
Located on the northwest corner of 146th Street and Ditch Road, Harmony is a 275-acre residential and commercial development. The 170,000 square feet of commercial space could include a grocery store, pharmacy, a convenience store, restaurants and a coffee shop.
“We’re delighted to be playing one part in the effort to bring new single-family homes, new apartments, and new retail options to the area with a plan that will respond to neighborhood needs,” said Tom Crowley, T.M. Crowley & Associates founder and chief executive officer. “We’re actively working now to identify potential retail partners who might be interested in this area at 146th and Ditch Road. While no deals have yet been signed, the Harmony Marketplace project has a footprint ideal for several successful retail stores.”
Crowley is one of the nation’s largest developers for CVS Pharmacy (responsible for 1,500 stores nationwide) as well as a major developer for Cumberland Farms. Crowley, who has overseen the creation of more than $1 billion in real estate assets, has been involved in high-profile projects in the greater Indianapolis area including Hamilton Town Center and The Crossing at 146th Street and Ind. 37 in Noblesville, the 1,800-acre Anson project in Boone County and the Giant Eagle grocery store project at The Bridges in Carmel.
“T.M. Crowley & Associates is a firm known for uniting growing businesses with attractive residential centers,” Estridge said.
The residential side of the project includes 650 single-family homes ranging in prices from $275,000 to $450,000 and a 250-unit apartment complex. There are five styles of homes ranging in size from 1,800 square feet to 4,000 square feet. Model homes will open later this month.
Amenities will include an expansive “Lifestyle Club” with banquet facilities, miles of winding walking and jogging paths, racquet courts, a fitness/workout center, yoga facilities, exercise and leisure pools, playgrounds, a putting green, lakes abundant green space, and a thriving commercial district.
“We’re excited to see the arrival of spring, because that means we’re about to open our doors at Harmony,” Estridge said. “Visitors will find a style inspired by the great homes in Meridian-Kessler, but with open floor plans and modern conveniences.”
The Harmony project started in October 2013 when Estridge Homes announced a new partnership with North Carolina-based Mountain Real Estate Capital, which provided $25 million in financing for Harmony and other future developments.
