From the cozy coffee shop to the stunning sauna, Central State Mansion has just about everything a co-living space needs.

If you haven’t stopped by this one-of-a-kind co-living haven — here’s how it works:

There are 60 units in the dorm-style building + leases can be as short as one month or as long as two years perfect for short-term contractors

The “Co-Share” Mansion includes studios with a bed, mattress + desk if you’re furnitureless, or they can be easily removed if you’re bringing your own. All utilities are provided (that means WiFi, too) and access to its luxury amenities is free

  • Kitchen — complete with not one, but three ovens
  • Bath house
  • Outdoor pool (perfect for the summer)
  • Movie room
  • Library
  • Sauna
  • Exercise room
  • Meditation room

The coffee shop, which is open to the public, recently reopened under new management in October. The new owner said that jazz nights are on the horizon + everything, including the flavored syrups, is made in-house.

The building is part of the larger Central State neighborhood on the city’s west side — a mixed-use village that’s been steadily growing since 2007. The area has seen over $80 million in investments + has a charter school, the Indiana Medical History Museum, People for Urban Progress headquarters, and the 1899 event venue

Pro tip: It’s just a quick drive to the International Marketplace — home to the city’s best global cuisines.
