After years of failed proposals, the undeveloped southeast corner of Ind. 37 and Ind. 32 may finally have concrete plans for improvement.
The Noblesville Technical Advisory Committee will consider construction plans for an automobile dealership and commercial subdivision to be called Terry Lee Crossing at its July 18 meeting. Assistant Planning Director Andy Wert said the 60.3-acre area will be home to a Terry Lee Hyundai dealership and commercial area with seven other lots for retail.
“They’re hoping to break ground as soon as next month,” he said.
The Hyundai dealership, which will be 8.071 acres, will be located right on the corner of Ind. 37 and 32. The main entrance to the development will be aligned with Foundation Drive off Ind. 32. Wert said plans are still in the works, but he believes there will not be a stoplight at that entrance or on Cherry Street, which will be extended eastward. There may be a right-in, right-out entrance directly off Ind. 37.
Wert said he knows of no businesses connected to the seven lots of retail space yet.
“Once the infrastructure gets in place there will be a lot of interest in it because of their location,” he said.
That area has been associated with Target in previous years, but plans were never finalized with company.
“I think it’s (the development) going to happen. The city and current developer Terry Lee have learned from the mistakes that happened in the past,” Wert said.
Terry Lee Honda opened its Avon location in 2009. The dealership offers new Honda cars, along with used cars, trucks and SUVs. If approved, Terry Lee Hyundai will be the second Honda dealership being constructed on Ind. 37 in Hamilton County. Honda of Fishers, formerly Honda West, is opening a location on Britton Park Road.
