M/I Homes will be building on the site of Central State Hospital, a former psychiatric hospital in Indianapolis. The Indianapolis Business Journal reports:

Columbus, Ohio-based M/I Homes says it will build 40 single-family homes and 20 town houses starting in the low $200,000s.

The project, called 58/Bahr, is named for the Bahr Treatment Center building, which was constructed on the site in 1958 in honor of Central State Hospital superintendent Dr. Max A. Bahr. It's planned for a stretch of Kirkbride Way, about a block northwest of the intersection of West Washington Street and Warman Avenue.

South Bend-based Holladay Properties, a master developer of the Central State site along with the team of Mike Higbee and Charlie Garcia, demolished the Bahr building in November 2015 to prepare the land for development.

Holladay is partnering on the M/I Homes project by performing the utility and infrastructure work, as well as creating the lots for M/I to build upon.

58/Bahr will be the second single-family housing project to be built at Central State, following The Villages at Central State.
