Zoning change could give VA more space

On December 2, Cincinnati City Council's Economic Development Committee will consider a zoning change that would allow the construction of a 54,000-square-foot medical office building in Corryville.

Developer Dan Schimberg, founder of Uptown Rental Properties, has requested the change in zoning of the currently vacant 1-acre property at 238 Donahue Street from RM-1.2 Residential Multi-Family to IR Institutional-Residential District.

When completed, the building would be leased to the VA Cincinnati Medical Center, which is in need of additional space.

The City Planning Commission recommended approval of the zoning change on November 7, and the plan has the support of the Corryville Community Council.
