This approximately $8.5 million neighborhood project incorporates three of Urban Sites’ main philosophies in urban development: develop in historically strong neighborhoods, create critical mass, and purposefully balance the uses on the street so that they support one another and create sustainable urban environments.
Through the purchase and development of several properties in this corridor, Urban Sites added beautifully crafted residential units, a coffee shop, bar, and workout/gym facility. Redevelopment included the renovation of existing structures, the addition of new construction to existing structures, working with the East Walnut Hills community, coordination with Cincinnati Metropolitan Housing Authority to upgrade an adjacent quasi-public park, as well as innovation including the installation of solar panels to reduce operating costs.
Once again, Urban Sites has taken a historically strong neighborhood, and with the correct balance of uses and upgrades to properties, has elevated this great neighborhood.
