Plans for a commercial development project in downtown Brownsburg were announced this week by Interdesign and Bolt Redevelopment Group.
Rick Bolt, a longtime Brownsburg resident and owner of Bolt Redevelopment, said the property where the development will be located is on the east side of State Road 267, across the street from the former St. Malachy Parish.
“We are planning to redevelop our Brownsburg property in a manner that will help create the kind of downtown that Brownsburg has always wanted,” he said in a press release. “Our goal is to revitalize the area and give residents a reason to come downtown instead of driving through our downtown on their way elsewhere. The Town of Brownsburg has always needed additional amenities and this kind of downtown development maximizes assessed value. In our master plans, we look to see a mix of new retail, office space and leasable housing.”
Indianapolis architecture firm InterDesign is beginning conceptual design work to determine what will be financially viable and benefit the community the most.
“Providing additional parking is a primary provision as well,” InterDesign Architect and Project Manager Andy Costlow said. “We also want to suggest connecting one side of the street (S.R. 267) with the other for pedestrians to promote interaction and improve public safety.”
Brownsburg Town Manager Grant Kleinhenz said Bolt has also been working with the town to develop plans for what facilities will be built and how that fits into the town’s Comprehensive Plan.
“What Rick has proposed there on the east side is a mixed use commercial development including retail, restaurants, office space, as well as potential second story or third story apartment condominiums — that kind of mixed use development,” Kleinhenz said. “The town supports that and we feel that would be a great fit in our downtown.”
This announcement goes hand in hand with Brownsburg projects that are coming in the near future.
