Huntington Bank looking to relocate


Huntington Bank is looking to move slightly south on Range Line Road. The bank is looking to relocate from its location near Carmel City Hall to a larger building next to Kroger, which used to occupy Walgreens Pharmacy.

Huntington is proposing to tear down the existing building and build a new building with 3,180 square feet on 1.994 acres at 1215 S. Range Line Rd.

The Walgreens moved south to a new building near 116th Street to allow for more space. Kroger used that building as a temporary grocery store during its remodel before its 2015 re-opening.

Huntington Bank has been looking to expand its presence in Carmel with a pop-in location at the ground floor of the Sophia Square building on Main Street with 24/7 lobby access. Huntington was also the headlining sponsor for 2015’s PorchFest.

Carmel Mayor Jim Brainard said the city may be interested in Huntington’s current location near City Hall as a way to expand the city’s police headquarters.

According to the Carmel Plan Commission, Huntington is proposing four lanes of drive-thru ATM and kiosks for customers at the new location. There would be 30 parking spaces. There would be no drive-up windows connected to the building or outdoor walk-up ATMs on the side of the building.

Traditional red and brown brick will be the main material on all four sides of the building with limestone at the top.

A variance will be required to allow a drive-thru facility next to an R-2 residential zone.

A roundabout is being proposed at the intersection leading into the bank along with construction across the street for the new Proscenium project, which will transform the former Party Time Rental site into a mixed-use development with retail, office and residential units.
