Vision Land puts Millworks plans on website

Vision Land Development has posted site plans and 3D massing models for the $300 million, 67-acre Millworks development on its website.

Located in Oakley, the 2 million-square-foot mixed-use development is expected to include:

* 745,000 square feet of Class A office space, including a 660,000 office campus
* 355,825 square feet of retail, including a National Amusements cinema, three anchors, one junior anchor, restaurant outparcels, and a bank
* 498 housing units, including condominiums, apartments and rowhouses
* 2 hotels
* A fitness center
* A three-acre square

A development agreement between Vision Land Development and the City of Cincinnati was approved in February.

To make the project happen, the $19.3 million Kennedy Connector project, which would connect Kennedy Avenue to Ibsen Avenue at Duck Creek Road, would need to be built.

Tax increment financing funds have already been approved for the roadway, but no construction date has been set.

Millworks, which has been in the planning stages since 2003, is expected to generate up to 3,700 jobs.

This, even at this stage looks more interesting than "The Banks" .

Just build the Kennedy Connector already! Put something on the Millworks site. It's been sitting there too long.

What's the timetable for something like this?

Hopefully this is a signal that the project might be moving forward...for real.

This will never happen! Who is going to want to live overlooking the railroad tracks?

In Cincinnati, most railroad tracks are hidden or run under tunnels ... in other cities railroad tracks and trains are part of everyday life. Speaking from experience, you get used to them and they even help you sleep to be honest.

The question should be: who is going to want to live on top of or next to all of this development? ... The answer is, most people would.

The location and setting set these two apart. Nothing in the entire region compares to the Banks.

Joshua...I have no idea what the timetable is.

Anonymous...I would have no problem living in a unit overlooking railroad tracks, provided the units are soundproofed worth a damn and not shabbily built.

I remember that Neyer outbid Vision for 7 acres of this site...but I don't see any note of those parcels being separate in the renderings. Do you have any word on the status? Are Neyer and Vision marketing the site in tandem? If so, that speaks volumes as to the viability of the project.

Kevin LeMaster said...

That's an excellent question, and I really don't know the answer.

I know that the original plan was for Vision to sub out the residential component to another developer. And if you notice, the residential buildings (yellow) on the first site plan posted are not numbered and show no square footages.

But there is no mention anywhere of a development partner for the residential component.
