Demo of Vine Street Buildings

Model is going to build new homes here. I have not seen the designs and I do not know if I will like them or not, however, my wife saw the proposal and thought it looked ok.

Front of Buildings before demolition. The gabled building behind is a very early Over-the-Rhine home. The miserable cinder block front addition was added 10 years ago without any building permits:

The north side, along 14th Street, a few months ago:


Demolition in progress:

I'll post photos of the new building as it gets built.

[Where: 1335 Vine Street, Cincinnati, OH 45202]

An announcement about this project:
Please join Cincinnati Mayor Mark Mallory on February 8th at 10:00 a.m. at the corner of 14th and Vine Streets in Over-the-Rhine, as he announces what’s next to keep the momentum going in The Gateway Quarter. Over the ast two-and-a-half years, 3CDC and the City of Cincinnati have invested over $70 million in Over-the-Rhine. Part of that investment has resulted in “The Gateway Quarter”, a mix of new and renovated condominiums and retail establishments currently centered around 12th and Vine Streets. Now, its time to move the “Q” further up Vine Street with an official groundbreaking for Gateway (UrbanLiving) Quarter Phase III.

They had better build up to the sidewalk!

Those photos show that not every building is worth saving in OTR. There's a lot clunkers in those shots.

I'm very curious what the new infill will look like.

I couldn't be happier that OTR is ridding itself of those eyesores. New infill should be great there.
