Cincinnati seeking proposals for 12.8 acres in Westwood

The City of Cincinnati has issued a request for proposals (RFP) for the redevelopment of three parcels in Westwood.

The site consists of 12.8 acres located along the south side of the 3100 block of McHenry Avenue, between Cavanaugh and Sunshine avenues.

Portions of the property have been held by the Cincinnati Land Reutilization Program (CLRP) since 2001.

By law, CLRP property must be sold for fair market value and are conveyed as-is, and the minimum bid price has been set at $108,430.

Proposals are due at 4 PM on February 20, and the winning proposal will be selected by city manager Milton Dohoney Jr. on March 13.

The property is located in a SF-4 Single Family District, which supports detached housing on minimum 4,000-square-foot lots.

On perfectly flat land, 12.8 acres zoned SF-4 could support up to 139 units, minus units lost to streets and other infrastructure.
