Fall Creek Place, a public-private partnership between the City of Indianapolis and Mansur Real Estate Services, Inc., covers a 26-block area on the northeast side of the city and includes 292 developable lots. Over a seven year period, 243 single-family homes and 87 townhomes were built, and 46 houses were rehabilitated. About half of the houses sold are considered ‘affordable’ housing, while the remainder sold at market rate.

All building designs submitted by the eight builders in Fall Creek Place were approved by a design review committee consisting of representatives from Mansur, the city, King Park Area Development Corporation, and Rottmann Garner Architects, who designed six prototype homes for the neighborhood. Though the basic infrastructure was intact, significant enhancements were needed in the form of new parks, sidewalks, street trees, lighting, bus shelters, and improvements to intersections and bridges.
