This statement was issued by Clifton Heights Community Urban Redevelopment Corporation:
"Old St. George is a landmark building for the Clifton Heights and Cincinnati
communities, and one that represents the great architectural history of our city. At this
time, it seems as if the damage from the fire has been contained to the steeples. We will
work with local fire officials over the coming weeks to determine the exact cause and
extent of the damage.
Old St. George is insured against fire damage. At this time, our intentions are to continue
working to save Old St. George from demolition. We will continue to work with City
Center Properties (www.cincinnatilofts.com), a local property development company, to
renovate Old St. George for commercial use. In addition, we will continue to work with
community groups, the city of Cincinnati, architects, engineers, and fire officials to
determine the best avenues to pursue to achieve this common goal."
