Join ULI Cincinnati as we visit the Sixth Street Exchange on September 24, 2019.
Sixth Street Exchange
is a $13 million historic rehabilitation of a 10-story, 1920s era office building into 52 new loft, micro and one-bedroom apartments. Located in the Central Business District of Downtown Cincinnati, this redevelopment features bright, historic loft-style residences over street level shop/restaurant space. Surrounded on all sides by active, upscale restaurants, bars, arts venues and hotels, Sixth Street Exchange is a proven location and is the last remaining building on the block to be redeveloped. While immediately proximate to neighborhood amenities, Sixth Street Exchange is also steps from the new Cincinnati Bell Connector streetcar stop which runs a loop from The Banks (riverfront district) to OTR (historic entertainment district).
After a successful award of State and Federal Historic Tax Credits, construction began at Sixth Street Exchange in the summer of 2018. With the help of Model Construction, New Republic Architecture, and finance partners Ohio Capital Corporation for Housing, Cincinnati Development Fund, and Republic Bank, Neyer Holdings Corporation is excited to make these new housing units available for lease in October 2019.FEATURED SPEAKERSTom Neyer Jr. Chairman and CEO of Neyer Holdings Corporation
