It’s the perfect place for a bite at lunch, cocktail after work, nice evening stroll, and now, one of the best places to call home: Court Street downtown.
Introducing Moore Flats, a 9-unit condominium building developed by 3CDC, and located in the center of the Court Street Plaza. Oyler Hines Group of Coldwell Banker has been hired to be the exclusive listing agents for the project. This historic renovation combines materials like exposed brick and real whiteoak hardwood flooring with a nod to the designers’ intent on capturing natural light. There are also some units that will have views of Music Hall’s cathedral towers and corbelling.
The Moore Flats has a mix of 1 bedroom and 2 bedroom condos at a starting price of $279,000. There are spacious built-in closets with GE Profile SS appliances and custom cabinetry along with generous lighting packages. The condos come with a 10-year tax abatement, helping homeowners to save thousands on their property taxes each year. The Moore Flats will also provide a storage unit for each condo.
“Moore Flats provides the best of both worlds perfectly situated between Over-the-Rhine and Cincinnati’s Business District, making it a convenient walk to both destinations all while Court Street Plaza is becoming a destination of its own,” says Scott Oyer of Oyler Hines Group at Coldwell Banker. “The last residential development we represented on Court Street, in the first phase, sold out much faster than anticipated. The secret is out and we expect a lot of activity.”
“We’re excited about adding these quality residential units to this continually evolving area of Downtown,” says Lann Field, Vice President of Development for 3CDC. “The Moore Flats condos are in a perfect location, adjacent to the reimagined Court Street Plaza, which has created vibrancy and is helping bridge the gap between the energy on Fountain Square and excitement in Over-the-Rhine. We expect this area to continue to grow in popularity for visitors and residents.”
The once overlooked northern section of Cincinnati’s Central Business District, is now a refreshed, bustling and thriving part of town.
How'd this all happen so quickly? In early 2019, a Pedestrian Task Force was created in a joint effort with the City of Cincinnati. The Task Force’s mission was to pinpoint pedestrian and traffic improvement needs, facilitate community engagement and meetings, and, along with Human Nature and 3CDC, develop design options for an updated plaza. Thanks to its outreach efforts, the task force was able to arrive at a plan the community supported. The result is Court Street Plaza, a streetscape improvement project along Court Street from Vine Street to the east and Walnut Street to the west.
The new design is widening pedestrian sidewalks, making room for more foot traffic and outdoor dining by restaurants located within the plaza. Plans also include a festival-style street design, allowing for vehicular closure of the street and opening the entire street to pedestrians for organized events. One lane of traffic each way will be maintained, and metered parking spaces will also remain intact, so that the neighborhood is still accessible for those who don’t exactly live nearby.
The newly revitalized Court Street Plaza is not only a fresh new public gathering space with wide, pedestrian-friendly sidewalks and community artwork, it’s also ideally situated at the center of many unique small businesses. The Moore Flats are just a short walk to Kroger, which makes grocery shopping super easy. It is also just steps to nearby restaurants and entertainment areas.
Nearby bars and restaurants include Pilar, Cincinnati’s famous Scotti’s, Bebo’s Artisan Burgers and Frappes. A city favorite, Avril Bleh Meats, is also in the neighborhood and transportation is being made easy from Court Street with proximity to Cincinnati Bell’s Streetcar southbound #15, giving you access to The Banks and northbound station #5 at Court and Main streets for quick access to Over-the-Rhine and Findlay Market.
