Cincinnati sells vacant land for access to Deupree Cottages

Cincinnati City Council has approved the sale of 0.2 acres of Oakley land to Episcopal Retirement Homes for part of a new $7 million senior complex.

Episcopal will pay the fair market value of $30,000 for the vacant property to create a new access drive to Deupree Cottages, a project consisting of two single-story, 12-bed buildings, a central living area, a resident activity kitchen, a wellness library and a fitness room.

The complex is scheduled to open within the next few months.

The City Planning Commission approved of the sale on December 19.

Under the sale agreement, the City retains easements to maintain a bridge wall and stormwater outfall on the property.
