North Pointe at Union Centre, a new nearly 99-acre collection of properties will soon see development at Union Centre and I-75. West Chester Township trustees approved rezoning of the four parcels for Dillin Corporation to create a new master-planned, mixed-use community.
The $265 million development will consist of 497,000 square-feet of commercial use, 870 multi-family units and a 140-room hotel stretching from I-75 and Union Centre Boulevard to Cincinnati Dayton Road.
Site development has been designated to occur in five phases with construction slated to begin in 2022 after site infrastructure issues are addressed. All phases of the project are estimated to be completed by 2026.
The Dillin vision for “North Pointe” brings a modern mixed-use sensibility to a vital commercial corridor of West Chester Township according to Dillin Corporation. This proposed $265+ million mixed-use development would include corporate office user sites, new residential product, public amenities and gathering spaces, entertainment options, a collection of food and dining uses, and a retail destination for the greater community to enjoy.
The North Pointe at Union Centre development plan calls for a public parks and trails system that will run along the east fork of the Mill Creek. This defining feature of the project will result in a ripple of positive impacts to the wildlife and aquatic life that resides along the Mill Creek. The project is being co-developed by Dillin Corporation and Brooks Creek Development.
Walkability, architecture and connectivity matter to Dillin who focuses on the integration with surrounding neighborhoods and sustainable investment that improves the entire community. Creating legacy projects that enhance quality of life and strengthen the social fabric of a community by energizing neighborhoods are the driving force behind the planning of a Dillin program.
