Vacant Queensgate lot to be developed

A 1.3-acre piece of Queensgate land that has been vacant since the late 1990s will be redeveloped.

As a parking lot.

Located on the northeast corner of Dalton Avenue and Kenner Street, the lot will serve Heidelberg Distributing Company's adjacent office building and its 250,000-square-foot warehouse and distribution space.

In 2003, the company received a Community Reinvestment Area tax exemption agreement from the City of Cincinnati for an expansion of the office building, a $1.75 million investment that added 12,800 square feet of office space and retained 237 full-time employees.

Heidelberg Distributing Company, dba Miller-Vontz, Ltd., has owned the parcel since December 2006.
