Development boom 20 years in the making continues to reshape College Hill

CINCINNATI (WXIX) – If you haven’t been to College Hill recently, you might find the stretch of Hamilton Avenue near North Bend Road unrecognizable.

The vacant lots are gone, replaced by mixed-use developments with flourishing ground-floor businesses.

“Those who are familiar with this area remember the little Kroger store and the iconic restaurant and banquet hall that used to stand on this corner,” Seth Walsh said. “Now look at it. Just a small piece of the revitalization here in College Hill.”

Walsh is with the College Hill Community Urban Redevelopment Corporation which is behind much of the transformation.
