Local Counsel for University Developer

Client: University-centric developer

We act as local counsel for a national university-centric developer, which has a focus on student housing. We obtained concept plan approval for an approximately 11 acre in-fill redevelopment of a former hospital site into a mixed use project known as the District at Clifton Heights, adjacent to the University of Cincinnati. The construction value of this project will exceed $300 million dollars and comprises approximately 1,400 apartment units, 300,000 square feet of retail space (including a theater and other entertainment uses), and a nationally branded hotel. This approval was the culmination of months of neighborhood engagement and collaborative planning with city staff, neighborhood associations, and university stakeholders involving permitted uses, vehicular movement and parking and public spaces.
