City Home photo update, 8/4/08

On Monday, August 4, Over-the-Rhine Community Housing (OTRCH), Eber Development, Schickel Design, and 3CDC held a media event at the site of the new City Home project along the 1400 block of Pleasant Street in Over-the-Rhine.

Crews were busy preparing footers for new townhomes on the site of demolished buildings at 1406-1410 Pleasant Street, while other contractors were busy working within the buildings that will be rehabilitated into new single-family and condominium units.

When I arrived, only a cameraman from FOX 19 was on hand, but I did notice Rich Jaffe from Local 12 and a crew from News 5 as I was leaving.

Some of the people pictured in these shots are: Kelly Leon of 3CDC (green/yellow top and flowered skirt/shorts), Karen Blatt of Eber Development (green top and black pants), Sarah Allan of OTRCH (pink top and skirt), Martha Dorff of Schickel Design (black suit).
