Council to vote on tax breaks for neighborhood projects

Correction:  Walnut Street and East 15th Street are in Over-the-Rhine not Walnut Hills as original story indicated.

Cincinnati Council will vote Wednesday on plans to provide tax breaks for neighborhood projects in Over-the-Rhine and Linwood.  

The OTR project calls for adding 24 market rate rental units and two commercial spaces in buildings located on Walnut Street and East 15th Street.  

The developer said right now the structures are uninhabitable.  The total construction cost for this project is about $432,000.

The project in Linwood involves remodeling a 1915 building on Eastern Avenue and creating 7 upscale apartments with 2,000 square feet of retail space on the first floor that would be used for a salon.  

The project has a price tag of $1.2 million.
