It’s been a busy year for CHCURC filled with many successes. Thanks to the help of our volunteers, dedication, and community dedication we have been able to move forward on many crucial projects to help improve the College Hill Business District.
Thanks to you, we have made major progress on the following projects:

Are you looking to expand your business? Are you curious to see if College Hill is a strong fit for your business? Earlier this year, CHCURC partnered with Urban Fast Forward, Cincinnati’s leading urban development and retail district revitalization firm.
College Hill is already the fourth largest neighborhood in Cincinnati. With the addition of Marlowe Court and College Hill Station bringing over 200 apartments in the heart of the business district, we believe that now is the time to invest in College Hill.
After compiling information from local government resources, census data, canvassing the business district, and community forums, Urban Fast Forward created a strong blueprint for the future of the College Hill Business District. While our business district is already home to many successful businesses, this study reaffirms the strong desire and space available for new businesses.
Key Retail Market Study Takeaways:
College Hill has a population of over 14,000 individuals. This population is diverse in many ways including economic, race, and age.
The College Hill business district is over 6 blocks long with plenty of room available for new businesses.
Marlowe Court and College Hill Station will bring over 200 new apartments in the heart of the northern and middle areas of the business district.
The most desired businesses include grocery stores, produce, ice cream/dessert, bakery, entertainment venues, and professional services.

The annual College Hill 5K is here again! This time it’s under a slightly different name. The Blues & Brews 5K is the natural growth to the previously named Rhythm Race.
This year, things will be pretty similar – but just a little bit bigger. Instead of holding our after party in the Parking Lot behind our businesses, we will be celebrating at the future site of College Hill Station! With the bigger space comes bigger celebrations. There will be blues music, bluegrass music, games for kids, food trucks, food served by our local restaurants, and delicious craft and domestic beer.
