Central Greens is a 150-acre redevelopment of a former state-owned mental hospital campus known as Central State Hospital, located on the near west side of Indianapolis. Ongoing development for this self-proclaimed "mixed use village" includes greenspace, housing, recreational sports fields, retail, makerspaces, artisan manufacturing, event space, a charter school, and more, with a complex financing mechanism that is driving economic development on the city’s west side. Since 2007 the site has attracted more the $80 million in public, private, and nonprofit investment. Central State truly offers live, work, and play experiences while also connecting with nature. The site features majestic mature trees, natural wildlife, and roaming horse pastures.
The tour will be led by Central Greens Master Developer Derek Naber of Holladay Properties, who will speak on infrastructure bonds, housing strategy, etc. Points of interest will include Cristel House, single family home developments, makerspaces, and event spaces, all located within the Central Greens redevelopment area.
