CPS to take ownership of Krueck Building

Cincinnati City Council has agreed to sell a building on the Hughes Center High School campus in Clifton Heights to Cincinnati Public Schools (CPS) for $1.

A sale agreement with the CPS board for the Edward Krueck Athletic Building, located at 2515 Clifton Avenue, was approved by City Council last Wednesday.

Jointly constructed by the City and CPS on school district property in 1971 for $1.9 million, the public recreation center was closed following the discovery of asbestos during the school's renovation project in 2007.

The costs of asbestos remediation were estimated at $750,000, and the building has remained vacant ever since.

CPS has not announced any plans for the building.
