The Hamilton Crossing West, which is west of U.S. 31, is looking to expand by adding another building where there is unused parking.
The office center is north of 12800 N. Meridian Street and across U.S. 31 from Meijer and many restaurants and retail buildings that have been affected by construction.
With the ongoing construction from U.S. 31, some of the nearby retail businesses in that area have reported decreases in business as construction made it hard to access the center.
Traffic has improved recently as access over U.S. 31 opened up with the 126th Street and Carmel Drive bridge in early July. Complete use of U.S. 31 should be mostly complete in the fall. After July 10, construction on U.S. 31 has shifted and traffic can now drive on the new outside lanes on U.S. 31.Once U.S. 31 is redone and reopened, the hope is that it should mean increased traffic to neighboring businesses.
The new three-story building will have more than 54,000 square feet. The applicant is also seeking approval for a three percent reduction in parking spaces required for this building and neighboring buildings. This new building is located between existing three story and four story buildings.
