Alley sale for Downtown child care center approved

Cincinnati City Council has unanimously approved the sale of two "paper" alleys Downtown for the construction of a new child care center.

Robin and Wichita alleys, both now part of a series of parking lots east of Broadway between New and Seventh streets, would be sold to abutting property owners Procter & Gamble and 417 E. Seventh Street, LLC for $103,000.

The sale will allow the property owners to assemble a site to build a 22,000-square-foot child care center that will serve up to 200 infants through pre-schoolers.

The new child care center, which is currently housed on the University of Cincinnati campus, is expected to employ 40.
