Hickory Place Townhomes*
The Hickory Place Townhomes are part of a long-standing plan to revitalize the historic and vibrant Avondale community. As one of the largest neighborhoods in Cincinnati, Avondale employs nearly 53,000 people and produces an economic impact of more than $3 billion each year. The multimillion-dollar Hickory Place Townhomes development has recently completed its second phase.
U Square at The Loop*
U Square at The Loop is a LEED certified multi-use mid-rise development covering two city blocks between McMillan and Calhoun streets. 161 upscale apartments provide easy access to the lively Clifton area and the accompanying 80,000 square feet of retail space houses a wide variety of apparel, fitness, dining and drink venues. U Square also features 40,000 square feet of University of Cincinnati office space and over 700 parking spaces.
I-71 MLK Interchange*
Since 2011, UCI has worked closely with the City of Cincinnati and the Ohio-Kentucky-Indiana Regional Council of Governments on the forthcoming $80 million interchange at I-71 and Martin Luther King Drive. The project opens 670 acres of unused land, creating up to 7,000 permanent full-time jobs in the region’s second-largest economic area. Explore the ongoing interchange development and the Uptown Innovation Corridor here.
What is now known as Martin Luther King Drive was created by connecting three existing streets: Dixmyth, St. Clair and Melish Avenue. Dixmyth Avenue was recently realigned to pave the way for the expansion of Good Samaritan Hospital, opening the door for more development around the healthcare hub.
Crossroads at Old St. George*
Crossroads, the fastest growing church in the nation, purchased Uptown's historic Old St. George Catholic Church from the Clifton Heights Community Urban Development Corporation (CHUCURC) in 2015. The site underwent $11 million in renovations, partially funded by UCI. Learn more about Crossroads at Old St. George at CrossRoadsosg.com.
The Verge on McMillan
The Verge is a new housing community designed to serve University of Cincinnati students. The 245,000-square-foot building features 178 apartments, 495 beds and 380 parking spaces. Located at W. McMillan Street and W. Clifton Avenue, the apartments are just one block from the university’s main campus.
Nestled in the Short Vine Entertainment District, VP3 is the newest housing community in Corryville. The $30 million residential development is conveniently located across from Uptown’s newest Kroger location.
101 E. Corry
Recently opened in Corryville's historic district, 101 E. Corry features 123 apartments and eight townhomes. A partnership between Uptown Rental Properties and North American Properties, the $25 million project is bordered by William Howard Taft Road, Euclid Avenue, East Corry Street and Eden Avenue.
Fairfield Inn & Suites*
Just south of U Square at the Loop, Fairfield Inn & Suites recently completed a $10 million development project. The 115-room limited service hotel has prime access to dining, entertainment and shopping in Clifton Heights.
On the border of Clifton Heights and Corryville, University Plaza represents significant growth for the Uptown community. Anchoring Short Vine and Corry Street, the plaza includes a recently renovated Walgreens Pharmacy and a Kroger marketplace that’s currently undergoing construction to expand to twice the size of the previous store.
In 2016, Walgreens Pharmacy reopened at University Plaza after undergoing a complete store remodel. The “happy and healthy” brand rejoined the community with the same friendly, pharmacy-led, health and well-being expertise in a new and improved setting. Renovations include better lighting, simplified in-store navigation and a stock of items specifically selected for local relevance.
Set to open in 2017, Kroger’s University Plaza store is undergoing a complete renovation to update and expand their reimagined grocery space. Supported by UCI new market tax credits, the $20 million development will create 200 new jobs and debut with expanded customer offerings, including a drive-thru pharmacy, a Little Clinic, craft beer stations, Starbucks and a more diverse food selection.
