The Carmel Redevelopment Commission bought the strip mall in 2018 for $15 million with the intention to redevelop the property into apartments, condos, shops and park land, a project called Monon Square North.
Businesses in the shopping mall were notified in 2018 of the plans to demolish the property and month-to-month tenants were given a 12-month demolition warning, according to Carmel Redevelopment Director Henry Mestetsky
Vertical construction on Monon Square North will not start until late 2023, but utility work on the property will begin earlier, Mestetsky said in an email.
“It’s exciting to envision how the redevelopment of this site will connect Carmel’s City Center and Midtown districts,” Mestetsky said.
Before the start of demolition last week, Monon Square served as temporary locations for city of Carmel departments and the Carmel Clay Historical Society. The property also served as a training site for Carmel Police and Fire departments, according to Mestetsky.
