Linwood apartment project would include 271 new units, pool, dog park

A local developer wants to turn the original R.K. LeBlond Machine Tool Co. factory in Linwood into a $70M luxury apartment complex with 271 units, a dog park and pickleball courts. The developer plans to preserve the original clock tower in the center of the factory complex.

A proposed $70 million redevelopment project in Cincinnati’s Linwood neighborhood would transform the original headquarters of the once-renowned R.K. LeBlond Machine Tool Co. into a luxury apartment complex with hundreds of new units.

The Cincinnati Planning Commission on Friday voted unanimously to rezone a 7.28-acre site that includes the old R.K. LeBlond buildings from manufacturing to multi-family to allow for residential construction.

The Jasper apartment complex would be located at 4575 Eastern Ave. on the site of the abandoned factory complex, where custom wine cellar maker, Wine Cellar Innovations, was most recently located, according to Downtown-based developer, CIG Communities.

CIG requested the zoning change to build 271 apartment units with onsite amenities such as a pool, dog park, and pickleball courts with 417 parking spaces, mostly in parking garages.
