Demolition of Southwest Quadrant Happening Soon
Next opportunity for future development: the southwest quad of the Cincinnati Innovation District
The next phase of the vision for the four quadrants at Martin Luther King and Reading Road is scheduled to start soon. Demolition of the southwest quadrant will begin in October, making the area “pad ready” for future development by the end of 2022.
Funding provided by JobsOhio will cover the cost of demolition, the removal of all paved areas and the grading of the site. According to Franz Stansbury, Director of Real Estate Development at Uptown Consortium, Inc. (UCI), the funds from JobsOhio are helping to prepare the site for future development and improve the overall appearance and marketability of an important location in the four quads within the Cincinnati Innovation District. “JobsOhio is helping lay the foundation for real estate development opportunities, improving the competitive edge with respect to attracting new investment and job creation by filling gaps in funding and accelerating and enhancing development-ready sites,” Stansbury said.
