Carmel, Indiana

Downtown Master Plan & Form Based Code

w/ Town Planning and Urban Design Collaborative

A burgeoning City on the northern edge of Indianapolis, Carmel boasts the largest employment center in Indiana. TPUDC was hired by the City to organize the numerous planning studies, ordinances and overlay districts currently present in Carmel into an integrated and simplifi ed master plan and form-based code that was user friendly. Suggested interventions ranged from proposed transit routes (light rail and trolley) to link a network of TODs with downtown Indianapolis, to new incubator campuses for education and business, to a master open space plan to link together a network of civic amenities among numerous others.
