Part of the Meijer parking lot at 124 W. Carmel Dr. could be converted to space for a 11,700-square-foot, multi-tenant retail building.

Alrig USA, a private commercial real estate investment and development firm based in Bingham Farms, Mich., has submitted plans for the 2-acre site in the west parking lot of Meijer, adjacent to the garden center. The company said the parking area is under-utilized and the excess space could be used “to help improve the area” with upgraded lighting, additional green space and landscaping.

The proposed building would have a combination of retail and restaurant uses, according to the application. There would be outdoor dining areas and parking behind the store.

The developer is working with city planning staff to meet the Old Meridian District requirements. The Carmel Plan Commission has received an application for the development and the Board of Zoning Appeals will hear some requests — mostly dealing with parking — at its Nov. 27 meeting.

Jon Sheidler with Woolpert, a national architecture and engineering firm, presented the project, stating  the goal is to make the building more visible so there might be changes to the site plan.
