The Recent History of Meiner Flats
Meiner Flats, the five-story buidling at E. 15th Street and Vine, is expected to be renovated over the next year according to Lisa Bernard-Kuhn at the Developing Now blog. The 3CDC led project will include 1428 and 1434 Vine on the south side of 15th St. The five-story Meiner Flats building was “saved from emergency demolition in 2008 by the city of Cincinnati and 3CDC, which collectively put up more than $400,000 to secure the deteriorating building. The city contributed $187,000, while 3CDC put in more than $260,000.”
But there’s more to this story. In early 2008, Meiner Flats was on the precipice of demolition. Danny Klinger, now of OTR A.D.O.P.T, started a campaign to save the Meiner Flats via PledgeBank. Thanks to Danny’s efforts and the campaign he started, Meiner Flats was saved and stabilized by the city of Cincinnati and 3CDC. Soon, Meiner Flats will be rehabilitated by 3CDC.
