DeSales' second phase gets go-ahead

Cincinnati City Council has unanimously approved an ordinance that will allow Excalibur Development/DeSales Properties LLC to build the second phase of DeSales Plaza in East Walnut Hills.

The ordinance creates a PD Planned Development District (PD-56) on 2.45 acres on land the developer has cleared along Woodburn Avenue, Chapel Street and Lincoln Avenue.

Concept plans submitted to the City by Excalibur's Keith Glaser call for 85 apartments spread among three three-story buildings.

Eighty percent of the units are expected to be one-bedroom units, with the remainder containing two bedrooms.

Groundbreaking is scheduled for this fall, with completion late next year.

The project will be submitted for LEED certification.
