Jackson’s Grant

Carmel, Indiana

  • Jackson’s Grant is a 280-acre, planned unit residential development in Carmel, Indiana named for President Andrew Jackson who granted much of the land. The property’s existing features were retained as community assets during construction which allowed for preservation of much of the creek and woodlands, minimization of earthwork to respect the existing undulating topography, a reduction of stormwater infrastructure sizes, decreased dependence on traditional infrastructure and utilization of dry, landscaped detention areas for stormwater management and open green space.
  • This development is unique in its approach to stormwater management in that it utilizes a series of large, dry, landscaped detention areas, especially given the scale of the site. By integrating the existing site features, the development gains attractive open space while reducing impacts to natural resources and cost associated with earthwork and traditional underground infrastructure.
  • The design of Jackson’s Grant promotes a healthy, active lifestyle with multi-use trails along the adjacent Williams Creek waterway connecting to the region beyond. The integrated design characteristics of Jackson’s Grant, along with the triple bottom-line benefits, make this community cutting edge. It’s representative of a new way to achieve sustainable community design.
