Demolition in Greenhills

Posted By on September 29, 2009

The old run down buildings across the street from Potterhill’s development in Greenhills are being torn down this week. While Potterhill Homes is not involved with the plans to redevelop that section, we couldn’t be happier seeing the progress being made!

We have recently sold 3 homes in Greenhills, and I for one believe it is partially because of this demolition activity.

We have sold 2 of our market homes (including our LEED certified model home), and we also sold 1 home that is to be built.

I am excited for the neighborhood & the progress that is being made through demolishing buildings that simply cannot be refurbished. 

I had the chance to meet the demolition crew. They work for a company called Building Value. Their company re-uses, recycles & re-sells all building material that is usable. Before the demolish, they tear out any fixtures, doors, windows, marble, granite, hardware etc. that can be resold at their re-use center on Gilbert Avenue. The best part is they are owned by Easter Seals, so all of the proceeds go directly to a great not-for-profit cause, and if you use them you get a tax write-off! Their website is www.buildingvalue-cincy.org  if you are curious to learn more.

I am exited for our new soon-to-be DeWitt Landing residents to join this lovely community, and I am excited that it seems to me the housing market continues to get better each month. 

It’s a good day for Greenhills, DeWitt Landing & Potterhill Homes!
