Carmel Purchases Shopping Center For $2.8M
CARMEL, Ind. -- The City of Carmel bought something big, and it's not an antique carousel.
Carmel has purchased the Mohawk Landing shopping center at City Center Drive (126th Street) and Range Line Road for $2.8 million.
For the time being, the shops in Mohawk Landing -- including a Pizza Hut, National Guard recruiting center and popular alterations shop -- will remain open.
City leaders intend to eventually demolish the 35-year-old, one-story building and redevelop the 2-acre site. Plans call for a mixed-purpose property that includes homes, shops, offices and restaurants.
Mayor Jim Brainard told The Indy Star on Tuesday that the city is "exploring its options" and has not set a timeline for redevelopment.
