iLoft at the Square is an awful name... Wow. Two things I hate in naming: adding an "i" before a word (the kids will LOVE IT!) and using ye olde English (Olde Towne Centre).

Looks like a good product that would fill up very quickly in West Chester, and encourage people living there to later buy a house in West Chester. If they ultimately push this development away they are foolish.

I think Dugan's main beef is that the developer is getting TIFF money for the parking garage; all other issues they rise are just noise

Agreed. And I'm wondering how Schumacher benefits if the deal falls through.

Doesn't Schumacher own much of the available land around Union Centre? He'd like prefer the development to happen west of I-75.

I think you are barking up the wrong tree... Schumacher does a TON of development up there, and does not get anywhere near this assistance.  It's not jealousy per se, but more of a call to level the playing field.  Interpret as you like.

^Eh, from the media reports he's all about killing the development. Not once does he ever mention his own deals. That's why I'm wondering what's really in it for him if this falls through. I doubt he's causing this much opposition just because of antiquated ideals about land use planning.

CincyImages, the development will be happening to the west of 75. I'm assuming you mean Schumacher would prefer development to the east, like by the GE tech center?

The apartment/retail/garage project is dead now.

So an old grumpy guy stopped a developer from adding jobs and people to the community because of "concerns" over how the deal came about... clearly there were other motives than just maknig sure "procedures were followed".

Im sure some people in the west chester community were worried that apartments/rental units would lead to undesirables in the neighborhood.

Not to mention the asinine quotes from previous articles mentioning "junky cars on the street" and the kids having no place to play...

Since the same developer is already doing the AT580 project downtown it would be great if they used some more equity in the core.

Maybe they'll just bring those apartments and retail to a parking lot Downtown. I can think of a handful that would love some redevelopment.

Those liberal commies in West Chester put up too much red tape for development.

Chalk it up with their failed "downtown village".

West Chester is Mason's slum cousin.

If they were in Kentucky, they'd be married like Independence and Union.

While northern Cincinnati is majority Republican, I like to explain it this way... Mason is home to more Wall Street Republicans and West Chester & Liberty Township are home to more Tea Party Republicans. Mason has stricter zoning, city income taxes, curbs, sidewalks, bike paths, tree lined streets and made up of mostly HOA neighborhoods. The neighboring townships lack a lot of these things and are made up of more anti government people.

West Chester and Liberty Twp. will be fascinating places when infrastructure maintenance bills come due and the cheap construction loses its sheen.
