Located at the intersection of 30th street and the Monon Trail, this historically overlooked and once-aging industrial area is being transformed into a new and unique mixed-use development.
Plans include adding 1,000 residential units for all income levels, more than 30,000 square feet of event space, multiple recreational areas and 50,000 square feet of commercial and retail opportunities.
Developers describe Monon 30 as a new and unique mixed-use project that is planned to provide approximately 1,000 residential units across income levels, over 30,000 square feet of event space, multiple recreation areas, and 50,000 square feet of commercial and retail opportunities.
The development will be constructed in multiple phases and designed to meet best-in-class urban standards while bridging Meridian Kessler, Fall Creek and Downtown, the development team said.
That team is composed of nine companies that have experience in multifamily and commercial development – Gradison Design & Build, Monan 30, Mojave Ghost, DMJR Development, Architects Forum, Premier Commercial, Gilliate General Contractors, Blackhawk Asset Management and the Ridge Group.
