NOBLESVILLE, IN (October 1, 2021) – Noblesville officials and Rebar Development officially opened The Levinson,  a $25 million mixed-use project today. The Levinson provides the first new apartments in Downtown Noblesville since 1915. 

“Enhancing and preserving downtown is one of my administration’s key pillars. There is a demand for living options in and around the Downtown Square and urban density supports our local businesses, restaurants, and shops,”  said Noblesville Mayor Chris Jensen. “Since this project started, it has attracted additional downtown development  interest and projects to redevelop space in our growing community.”

The Levinson includes 75 market-rate and 10 affordable-rate studio, one- and two-bedroom modern apartments with a rooftop deck and contemporary amenities. Additionally, the 2,000-square-foot lobby along Maple Avenue includes a public exhibit of Downtown Noblesville’s rich history and 5,100 square feet of commercial space is along  Ninth Street. 

“The Levinson is attracting millennials, empty-nesters, high-earning and workforce professionals to downtown— serving as an economic driver for Noblesville restaurants and businesses,” said Rebar Development President  Shelby Bowen, adding that only four units remain unleased.

The project also includes a four-level, 299-space parking garage. A minimum of 199 spaces will be available for paid public parking. The Levinson will provide four hours of free parking to guests, and cost $2 per hour after that time per day. 

“Surface parking lots, while functional, are not the best land-use strategies to sustain and enhance a vibrant downtown. A public parking garage is an essential component to address current, perceived and real parking challenges and The Levinson is a creative redevelopment of these valuable parcels,” Community and Economic  Development Director Sarah Reed said.

The Levinson is named after one of the pioneer families in Noblesville. The family was known for being charitable,  but it was the eldest son of the Levinson family, S.O. Levinson, a Noblesville High School graduate and Nobel Peace  Prize nominee, who donated his family’s former homestead to the city in 1938. A portion of the land was used as the former City Hall site before becoming a public parking lot. 

“As the family’s success and contributions were a source of pride in our community long ago, so too will this building named after them. The look and name pay homage to downtown’s history as we prepare for  Noblesville’s needs now and in the future,” Jensen said.

The Levinson is a public-private project between Rebar Development and the City of Noblesville. Hagerman Inc. and Edwards-Rigdon Construction built the project and garage.
