Recently vacant Broadway Building could see apartments in 2017

In January, the Hamilton County Board of Elections is moving to a larger space in Norwood. The former home of the Board of Elections — also known as the Broadway Building because of its location at 824 Broadway — will soon be redeveloped.
Rookwood Properties has owned the site for 30 years, and wants to build on the redevelopment successes in Over-the-Rhine and downtown.
The Broadway Building could house 50-60 apartments, with additional units constructed in the rear of the building. Rookwood is also working to redevelop a parking lot at the corner of East Court and Walnut streets. The project, which would involve a grocer store, parking garage and apartment tower, could involve Kroger and 3CDC.
The proposed $7 million Broadway Building project will go before the city in January, and Rookwood will have a better idea then if and when the project will be moving forward.
