The Corryville Community Development Corp. (CCDC) was formed when the University of Cincinnati teamed with the Corryville Community Council and the Short Vine Business District. Its purpose: to develop the Village at Stetson Square, an $80 million community that opened in 2006 in Corryville. Now developers are getting ready to start work on a second phase of the project.

The Village at Stetson Square is located at Martin Luther King Boulevard and Eden Avenue. It features two large apartment buildings with 205 apartments, 53 town and row hoses, 95,000 square feet of office and retail space, and both public and private underground parking. Amenities include a clubhouse, private theater, fitness center, library, pool and sun terrace, pub and billiards room, concierge services, as well as a cyber cafe and high-speed Internet.

The entire project was built on land owned by the CCDC. In the summer of 2009, work was completed on the final rowhouse building. Two other sites were left for later development. Now, developer Great Traditions Land & Development Co. is getting ready to start work on one of those sites.

The Great Traditions Land & Development Co. presented development plans to the city of Cincinnati’s strategic growth committee on April 30. It will develop 18 new townhomes on the 0.63-acre parcel of land behind the apartment building and pool on Rochelle Street. Four new buildings will house 16 one-bedroom units, studios and two two-bedroom townhomes. Prices are expected to range between $190,000 and the mid-$200,000s.

Great Traditions was selected to continue work on the project in 2011, when it responded to a request for proposals from the development corporation for rights to develop the next site. It will build the units according to LEED standards and try to take advantage of current city tax credit programs.
