Is this what you mean by 'a very distinctive inflorescence with leaflike bract adhering to the peduncle' ?
Kindly verify. Attachments (6).
Yes thanks
nice young tree
where its situated
its by definition someone's property front or side yard not city street/avenue tree
so someone really wanted this tree in their yard and planted it
of course local park department does make recommendations
Leaves look as if its suffering from water deficiency though the lawn is still green
If we go by the keys at BSI eFlora of India with details (Volume 3- 1993), it is not Tilia cordata.

Not maple. 
Please look at Linden trees. Possibly Tilia cordata.
