Cincinnati asks developers to submit “best plans” for four city-owned sites

The city of Cincinnati “is asking developers to give them their best plans for four development sites around the city,” the Cincinnati Business Courier reports. The city’s Department of Community and Economic Development is requesting proposals for city-owned development sites that are “spread across the city and primed for development,” according to the article. The idea, according to director of community and economic development Oscar Bedolla, is to build on last year’s program and “release four opportunities at once.” The properties are: 31 Garfield Place, a parking lot where the city is “looking for a development that activates the streetscape”; 830 Lincoln Ave. in Walnut Hills, where the city would like to see “single- or multifamily units”; 3916 Reading Road, where the community wants a mixed-use development; and 3540 Ibsen Ave., where “the city is seeking an innovative development . . . with an emphasis on office use.” For more, read the full article.
