The Tri-State area is booming recently when it comes to new developments. If you live in the Cincinnati or Northern Kentucky metro area, you’ve likely noticed some big construction projects occurring in your community.
As experienced construction accident workers’ compensation attorneys, the team at The Harris Firm prides itself on keeping a pulse on the Cincinnati construction industry.
Earlier this year, Cincinnati.com released an article highlighting local developments to keep an eye on. Our team recaps those projects here:
- Newport on the Levee Area: This $80 million development, located on the lot east of Newport on the Levee, brings much promise to the Kentucky side of the river. Plans include a 144-room loft hotel and 239 apartments. The Price Group, owner of the Levee, is also considering improvements to the 14-year-old entertainment, restaurant, and retail space.
- Reading Road/MLK corridor: Avondale, along with other neighboring communities, could benefit from the plan to create good-paying jobs around the new I-71/Martin Luther King Jr. Drive interchange. Abandoned and blighted buildings may be demolished to make room for new office space and other types of developments.
- Fourth and Race: Many are familiar with the former Pogue’s garage at the northwest corner of Fourth and Race streets, but did you know that soon a high-rise building with 208 luxury apartments will replace it? The complex will also feature a 925-space parking garage.
- MedPace: A global leader in research-based drug and medical device development, MedPace is planning to develop underutilized land that is part of the corporation’s campus. The proposed project, in Madisonville, could cost over $100 million.
- Marydale: Another commercial development project may be coming to Northern Kentucky in Boone County. Western & Southern Financial Group division Eagle Realty Group has amassed 270 acres of underutilized land near Donaldson Highway and Houston Road and is considering building potential office space.
- Broadway Square: The first of three phases for this project was completed earlier this year. The development will include 100 apartments, 35,000 square feet of office space, and retail space near Horseshoe Casino.
- Incline District: This project will include redeveloped residences, commercial enterprises, and infrastructure investments at Price Avenue, West Eighth Street, Grand Avenue, and other nearby streets in East Price Hill.
- Former Champion Paper/Smart Papers site: What do you do with an old 42-acre Hamilton paper mill? Turn it into an indoor/outdoor sports complex, if you’re Moses B. Glick and the Great Miami Rowing Center. The project will cost $30 million to $50 million and will serve primarily hard-surface sports.
- General Electric Co. Building: Out of all the developments mentioned here, you’ve likely heard about or noticed the GE building currently under construction at The Banks. This structure will house nearly 2,000 employees and is costing $90 million to build.
The team of attorneys at The Harris Firm is excited to see all of these projects get under way. Some have already started, and some are still in the planning stages, but all have the potential to contribute to the thriving business and residential growth Cincinnati is experiencing.
