A new neighborhood could add hundreds more residents along a busy Center Grove area road.
Beazer Homes has proposed Timbercreek, a 168-lot subdivision on nearly 91 acres on the north side of Stones Crossing Road, between Morgantown and Saddle Club roads.
Details about the homes, such as the prices and sizes, have not been determined, said Ty Rinehart, director of land acquisition.
Those details will be sorted out as the development goes through the approval process, he said. That process is just beginning, and Beazer has not yet bought the land until getting the needed approvals from the county, he said.
Company officials hope to begin construction as soon as this fall, or in the spring, he said. And if that happens, residents could begin moving into new homes as soon as next year, he said.
The neighborhood is planned to be built in phases, he said.
Timbercreek would have lot sizes of about one-third of an acre, he said. Lot sizes in neighboring subdivisions Forest Hills and Brentridge Estates are similar sizes.
The new neighborhood, if approved, would be built on what is currently undeveloped land off Stones Crossing Road.
That road is a key route for thousands of vehicles every day traveling to Center Grove schools and to State Road 135 to commute to Indianapolis.
The location is one of the key attractions, Rinehart said.
Center Grove is a highly-ranked school district statewide, which is where students living in the neighborhood would attend school. The area is also centrally located, near shops and businesses, he said.
Before proposing a development, the company does multiple studies into an area, including demographics, home sales and the number of homes being built, he said.
Home sales across central Indiana are booming right now. But Johnson County, especially in the northern area of the county, is outperforming other central Indiana counties.
Beazer is not developing any other neighborhoods in the Center Grove area currently, Rinehart said.
