Cincinnati: Walnut Hills: Emery Village

Something may be happening in the "triangle" of Gilbert/Nassau/Sinton

Gilbert Avenue Development LLC has purchased properties at 2202, 2204, 2208, 2210, 2212 and 2220 Gilbert Ave., as well as the parking lot behind then on Sinton, for $1.275 million. 

This area is zoned commercial-mixed, meaning both auto-oriented and pedestrian-oriented uses. 

I do not know if they plan to redevelop the buildings or if they plan on tearing them down. 

Their address is 4500 Lake Forest Dr., which is in Blue Ash.  I haven't been able to nail down who they are just yet.

Here are the buildings involved:

2202 Gilbert:


2204 Gilbert:


2208 Gilbert:


2210 Gilbert:


2212 Gilbert:


2220 Gilbert:


If you look at the map Grasscat linked to, it's every lot in that triangle except the property that abuts only Nassau, where Andy's Mediterranean is.  Could be exciting, and I wouldn't care either way about the three blue houses, but the pink one rocks, and the brick ones would be missed...I'd assume it will be all housing, since those places just down the hill are going for way more than I'd have expected, but I'd love to see another restaurant go in there...

Driving past last night, you can see where they've painted a couple patches on 2202 Gilbert, which seems to mean someone's going to repaint it, which seems to mean they aren't planning on tearing it down anytime soon:



I also saw a small patch of paint a couple weeks ago on, I believe, the back of 2210:



...but didn't get a picture.  So it seems unlikely that teardowns are in the works - but I guess one never knows...

Hey, not sure if I just entirely missed this yesterday or what, but 2204 Gilbert is getting a whole new paint job!  And it's interesting too!

See also this later post...well, the painting is done!





Very interesting, nice color contrasts...I did dig the pink the first one used to have, but I'm really happy that they made a nice, coherent mini-neighborhood out of them.  Yay!

There's lots of nibbling around the edges, and lots of opportunity here...but yeah, I can't wait for the day when Peeble's Corner's business district is revitalized.  I don't need or want it to be Hyde Park Square - but functioning, healthy, and busy.

Oh, but they can Hyde Park-ify the Kroger's anytime they want...especially the frickin' produce section...

Regarding the Gilbert/Sinton/Nassau triangle (see above here) - they're painting the building right at Sinton and Gilbert now.  Here's the Sinton side from this morning:

Hey RiverViewer...the buildings you were talking about on Gilbert have condo listings now.  They range from the $80s to the $130s.

Wow, that's cool.  I wonder how they look...

Nice, affordable housing just up the street from downtown!  It doesn't have a river view, but it does have a skyline view!  Maybe they should rename the places Stevedore's Windings or something, make it all Towne Properties-sounding...

From blight to condos
BY JEFF MCKINNEY | ENQUIRER STAFF WRITER

Two developers are investing $6 million to convert blighted apartment buildings in Walnut Hills and East Walnut Hills into 63 condos.  Barry Randman, president of Redmont Development Corp. near Eden Park, said he and his partner, Bill Green, bought the two buildings last year and converted them into condos because they are in good locations and should appeal to renters looking to buy homes. He said Green is president of Green Mountain Properties in Blue Ash.  The pair bought the buildings for an undisclosed cash amount.

Grasscat's been following this in the Random Developments thread for a while now, but this is great to see exactly what the plans are!

One thing - they say, "One building, to be called Emery Village Condominiums, is near Eden Park along Gilbert Avenue and Nassau Street."  Er...29 units in one building?  The largest building is 2202 Gilbert, which is around 6500 square feet...225 square foot units for everyone!

What they must mean is one development, one cluster of buildings...which for Emery Village, should be all of the buildings inside this red triangle, with the exception of the yellow/shaded building (which is Andy's Mediterranean):




For reference, here's links to Random Developments posts:

Grasscat's initial post - it's the top story of this update:

Yeah, I don't think anything had yet mentioned Emery Village - that's new data.  But no, seems like it's officially a project, not just speculation, so I'd think having its own thread is appropriate!

And, by the way, here are affordable condo's right near downtown...4-5 minute walk to Eden Park, 15-20 minute walk to Mt. Adams, 20-30 minute walk to downtown (or a 90 second bus ride, with the stop immediately across the street), next door to Andy's Mediterranean, $85K-$150K, low HOA fees...everything someone could want, all in beautiful Walnut Hills!

I actually was just on that block last week.  Its a very cool area, and with extremely quick access to downtown and Mt. Adams.  I was eating at Andy's Mediterranean (neat place btw) and got to check out the hood, completely unaware of the project that was going on.

I live a block or two away from there, and yes, I love the area.  It's tough to get more convenient than here - very quick highway access, very quick downtown access, bus lines, plus a couple gas stations, a UDF, a Kroger, good dining, fast food, parks, etc., etc.  And now the quality housing stock is moving north of Nassau, and I'm thrilled!

Affordable condos coming to Walnut Hills

A developer is rehabbing two buildings in Walnut Hills for condominiums aimed at first-time buyers.  Emery Village Condos, on Gilbert Avenue, and Bulluck Terrace, at Locust Street and Woodburn Avenue, are being developed by Redmont Development Corp., according to a news release by Comey & Shepherd Realtors, which is marketing the condos.

Emery Village will have 29 units, and Bulluck Terrace will have 34 units. The one-, two- and three-bedroom condos will range from 600 to 1,200 square feet. Prices will start around $85,000 and go up to about $150,000, with amenities that include granite countertops, stainless steel appliances and hardwood floors.

They keep saying Emery Village is one building...it's gotta be the whole set of six buildings, or else the units would have to average 250 square feet...

I don't know if anybody saw this but the condos in the above buildings were listed on Sibcy Cline as individual condos for around 89k-110k.  Pretty good prices for a first time buyer!!!  Today I looked and Sibcy Cline has each building listed for sale as an apartment building. 

Are these turing into apartments instead of condos??  I hope not!!!

The pictures of the inside of the condos/apartments look really good btw!!
