Carmel Drive to be closed Tuesday for pool installation

CARMEL, IN – Proscenium, a mixed-use development located the corner of Carmel Drive and Rangeline Road designed and constructed by Birkla Investment Group (BIG) is nearing the end of construction on its $1 million amenity deck, which is a $1M addition to the overall Proscenium project.

BIG has hired Midwest Landscaping to install a 40-by-15-foot stainless steel pool on the rooftop of its parking garage overlooking Carmel Drive. The pool will be lifted into position and installed via crane, closing Carmel Drive between 3rd Avenue and Rangeline Road on Tuesday, January 25 from 9 a.m. to noon. Traffic will be diverted to City Center Drive during this time.

“We’re excited to enter the last phase of construction to complete Proscenium’s amenity deck,” said Lynn Wall, Director of Construction of Novo Development Group, the general contractor for BIG and the Proscenium project. “Our expertise in construction allows us to execute high-quality, unique projects for our residents and the community.

The pool is the signature feature of Proscenium’s upscale outdoor amenity deck, offered to both groups of Proscenium’s residents—condo owners at REV and lessees at VER. The amenity deck provides the atmosphere of being on a luxury vacation, but from home. Proscenium plans to open the pool to its residents this spring. Amenity deck features that are private to the residents include the pool, fire pits, sundeck, putting green and outdoor bar. Open to the public are features including an outdoor fireplace, hammock swings, oversized outdoor chess and lounge seating.

“It’s essential to our business that we incorporate unique features that attract residents and businesses vital to the larger community,” Birkla said. “We’ve invested significantly in Proscenium to create an inspiring place for our residents to call home. A rooftop pool is just one of many reasons why someone would choose to live at Proscenium. We listen to what today’s residents want to create real estate projects that inspire and make an impact.”

Proscenium also features an impressive interior clubhouse, inclusive of several luxury amenities that residents may utilize for no extra fees. These include a guest suite that residents may rent to host out-of-town family and friends, a co-working space with conference room and business center, a Full Swing golf simulator, pool table, shuffleboard and more. It has direct access to the Monon Trail.

In addition to its residential community, Proscenium leases office space to Carmel businesses and offers dining and retail establishments on site—all within steps of residents’ front doors. Tenants include Wahlburgers, which opened in 2020, and Beer Kitchen 101 and a luxury salon, both scheduled to open later this year.


Proscenium is a unique Carmel community that combines the luxury of upscale living with the ease of retail shops and dining options right outside your front door. Proscenium offers both for-sale homes at REV and for-rent apartments at VER. Perfect for young professionals or active, mature adults, Proscenium lets you enjoy life with the convenience of having it all just steps away. Living at Proscenium means living life, center stage.
