Short Vine on the Rise

CINCINNATI (WKRC) -- Short Vine used to be a destination for entertainment. 

Then decades of decline left it full of blight.

Tuesday the community celebrates the latest step in the effort to bring it back.  Local 12's Tiffany Wilson takes us inside views on Vine.

Standing on a sidewalk splashed with sunlight, city leaders held scissors and wore big smiles.

Cutting the ribbon symbolizes so much more than this building's opening, it serves as a marker in Short Vine's rebirth.

Over about a 20 year period, businesses left, residents left and those spaces were filled with people loitering.  It has gone through a rough period but this is a great day for Coryville.

The 20 million dollar mixed use project "Views on Vine" officially opens Tuesday.  It offers 104 new upscale apartments to the neighborhood.   The entire building is already rented and every resident Tiffany Wilson spoke with gave glowing reviews.

On the retail side, 5/3 bank has moved in.  Taste of Belgium is set to open in a couple of weeks.  Other stores are currently in negotiations.

The developers' goals don't stop there.

Developers are breaking ground on the next new project in a few weeks and by the summer of 2015, theyll  have added more than 1000 residences to Short Vine.
