Oakley and Northside neighborhoods will see some new development soon.
Cincinnati City Council approved
two deals on Wednesday that will bring $18 million in new development.
In Oakley, three acres of land
will be home to a daycare center, and a 40,000 square foot professional office
In Northside, the plan is to
build 100 apartments, and 8,000 square feet of commercial space on a 2.4 acre
piece of land.
The development in Northside will go up on the Myron Johnson
Lumberyard site, and when's it all said and done, it'll be a mixed use space
for the neighborhood.
It might look like just a big, open piece of land, but that's
about to change. Milhaus Development will put up $400,000 to buy it from
the city. The plan is to bring a new light to Northside.
"I'm excited to hear that
there is some action going on. That's exciting to see more development
happening in my neighborhood," said Kate Cook, who lives in Northside.
Some people in the neighborhood
couldn't be more excited for this development at the corner of Hamilton Avenue
and Blue Rock Street.
"It's always been sort of a
green, and sort of a parking lot or green area. I think it'd be great to
have a new brick-mortar business there in the community, especially when this
corner's so vibrant and so active. It'd be nice to have a big showcase
there," said Sara Mulhauser, who lives in Northside.
"This business district has
always been mixed use, and the idea of a mixed use project on this parcel makes
perfect sense," said Bruce Demske, president of the Northside Business
When finished, the project will
total about $11 million. However, some Northsiders are hoping its impact is
much more than that to the local shops, restaurants and even the weekly
"People want to be able to
walk to their shopping, and so, having more options for that would be
good. I know that people looking to move here want to be close to the
business district. Those are two win-win things," added Cook.
The city bought this property
several years ago in hopes of revitalizing the historic Northside business
district. Since then, they've worked on the site to make it ready, and
marketable, for development.
As for the project in Oakley, the Morelia Group will work on
that. Those buildings will be along the Kennedy Connector. Both the
daycare and office space projects are expected to total $7.5 million in private
investment, plus it could bring the creation of about 150 new jobs to the city.
