A downtown Cincinnati office building will soon find new life as a mixed-use development.

Village Green has purchased 309 Vine St. for $10 million.

The company is one of the largest developers, owners and managers of luxury apartment communities in the nation.

Plans for the building include luxury apartments, a 11,200-square-foot market/grocery store, restaurant, offices and a new name for the building.

In addition, there will be a 6,300 square foot rooftop restaurant that will overlook the Ohio River and sports stadiums and a 330 car parking garage. 

309 Vine sits on the north side of Fort Washington Way, just a block from where General Electric Co. is building its new Global Operations Center will open.

Developers say they hope to add 294 apartments and 45,000 square feet of retail and office space to the downtown area.

The market would sit on the first floor of the building at the corner on Vine Street.

Based on preliminary plans, construction is scheduled to begin in January 2016 and the apartments could be ready in early 2017.

Cincinnati City Council still has to vote to confirm the idea and tax incentive plan.
