Help save 1502 Vine Street

You may or may not have heard, but another gem in Over-the-Rhine is at risk of being demolished. The building is around 15th & Vine on the NE corner. There is however a twist in this story…an effort is underway to raise private money as a sign of good faith to save the building from the wrecking ball.

The hope is that enough private money is raised to show a level of commitment that could go a long way in saving the building. This financial commitment could then help to leverage $100,000 the City has for restoration and $150,000 that 3CDC has for potential use on the building.

If you’re interested in helping, please check out, or (different pledge levels).
