Factory Square photo update, 4/4/09

Not much visible is happening at the Factory Square project in Northside, but the project is far from dead.

During Give Back Cincinnati's Community Immersion on April 4, Jared Wayne of developer Bloomfield/Schon + Partners said that we should expect to see the building open in about two years.

In fact, his company is so invested in the project that he says he's basically on the project site full-time.

Upon completion, the former factory building will house more than 90 market-rate apartments, sheltered parking, and 27,000 square feet of commercial space that will include a restaurant or café use.

Townhomes, offices, and a public park are also planned for the property surrounding the structure.

I am thrilled to hear the project is not dead. Every day I drive by it and think how nice that part of Northside will be with the fence down, a green park there, and people living in the Amer. Can Co. building.

This really needs to happen and I feel pretty confident that it will happen (just give it some time). Once complete this will remove one of the largest eyesores along the I-75 corridor. I can't wait.
