Proposed ‘Brooks Farm’ could bring 314 homes to Noblesville


A project from Gradison Land Development, Inc. to bring 314 homes to east Noblesville could soon begin.

At its meeting tonight, June 12, the Noblesville Common Council will hear a presentation and rezoning request from the company for Brooks Farm, a 124-acre housing development at the northwest corner of 156th Street and Summer Road.

Gradison is requesting the entire property be rezoned from low-density single-family residential to moderate-/high-density single-family residential.

The mixed residential community would bring 46 duplex-like homes, “villas,” which would be built by Lennar Corp. All single-story, the homes would average approximately $275,000. Similar homes already exist in the nearby Chapel Woods, near the northeast corner of Greenfield Avenue and Union Chapel Road.

Another 268 single-family homes would round out the project – 128 of which would be built by Lennar Corp. and average $300,000, and 140 of which would be built by PulteGroup, Inc. and average $325,000.

Thirty-eight of the development’s 124-acre space would be devoted to amenities, green space and common area, including a 1.5-mile trail system through the neighborhood.

However, Gradison said the focal point of Brooks Farm would be a farmhouse-style amenity center, to be known as “Brooks Barn.” The shelter area that looks like a barn would be the venue for neighborhood events and gatherings.

Gradison said construction, if rezoning is approved, would begin in spring 2019.

While tonight’s meeting will serve as a chance for the council to hear Gradison’s introductory presentation on the development, no action will be taken. A public hearing on the rezone request will be held at a future meeting, and the council will then vote to approve or deny the rezone at the same meeting or the following meeting.

Tonight’s meeting begins at 7 p.m. at city hall, 16 S. 10th St., Noblesville. To see the full agenda, visit
