Indianapolis developer gives big Walnut Hills project a new name
Milhaus, the Indianapolis developer building a major, $13 million mixed-use project in Walnut Hills, has given it a new name and released some additional details about the project.
Originally called Firehouse Row, Milhaus has renamed the 124-unit Poste. The project will be bordered by East McMillan, Wayne, Kenton and Copelen streets. The building fronting McMillan will be four stories, while the others will be three.
The new name is a tribute to the Underground Railroad in Walnut Hills in the 1800s, according to the company. Walnut Hills acted as a post in the network of stops for fleeing slaves from the south, offering a place for safety and community.
Poste is the new name for a major apartment project in Walnut Hills.
“The apartment Poste will act similarly to unite diverse individuals and their differing lifestyles into one community,” according to Milhaus. “Milhaus intentionally added an ‘e’ as a distinguishable variation of the spelling while still connecting to the historical significance of this area in Cincinnati.”
Poste includes 124 units with 18 studios, 73 one-bedroom apartments, 28 two-bedroom apartments and five two-bedroom townhomes. The apartments will be pet friendly, have nine-foot-high ceilings, “wood-style” floors, wood cabinets, washer and dryers in each unit as well as quartz countertops. Community amenities include an urban workshop, 39 bike-storage spaces and available private garages. First-floor commercial space is set to be 4,345 square feet.
