Press Release – For Immediate Release


One of Greater Cincinnati’s hottest markets for new development is about to feel the heat turned up a little more.  Ground has been broken on a new 8.35-acre development by Sycamore Township-based Scott Street Properties alongside I-75 and The Streets of West Chester development where Topgolf and Main Event recently opened.   Phase I of the new development will feature a couple freestanding buildings and a multi-tenant building featuring two new-to-market concepts, plus as many as an additional six other tenants further contributing to the excitement building in northern Cincinnati’s premier “eatertainment” district where visitors are drawn to eat, shop & play.  Eric Abroms and Joshua Rothstein of Blue Ash, OH-based OnSite Retail Group, LLC are handling the marketing and leasing of the new development.

Chuy’s Tex-Mex restaurant was the first tenant to commit to the new project.  Chuy’s, the Austin, TX-based restaurant known for being “deep in the heart of Tex-Mex”, will build a 7,028 square foot freestanding restaurant on the new section of Civic Centre Boulevard which is currently under construction.  The new section of roadway, expected to be completed October 2016 will finally complete the connection of Civic Centre Boulevard from Union Centre Boulevard to Allen Road.  The new West Chester location will mark Chuy’s fourth location in the region, adding to restaurants in Kenwood, Florence and Springboro. 

Two additional restaurants adding more flavor to the new development include new-to-market food & drink specialist Matt the Miller’s Tavern, as well as a nationally-accredited local specialty donut shop.  Matt the Miller’s Tavern is an upscale casual restaurant that signed a lease for a 5,600 square-foot endcap of the multi-tenant building.  The restaurant will feature indoor and outdoor dining, a chef-driven menu and a constantly rotating inventory of craft, draft and local beer.  Next to Matt the Miller’s Tavern in the multi-tenant building will be the specialty donut shop that has built a cult-like following in recent years.  The donut shop will be 2,747 square feet with an outdoor patio and will feature their renowned specialty donuts that can be compared to no other in the region.

Another new-to-market retailer coming to the development is Duluth Trading Company, who plans to construct a 14,557 square-foot freestanding building at the south end of the site next to the proposed Bass Pro Shop store.  Duluth Trading Company is a rapidly growing lifestyle brand for the “Modern, Self-Reliant American”, according to the company’s website.  Based in Belleville, Wisconsin, Duluth Trading Company offers high quality, solution-based casual wear, workwear and accessories for men and women who lead a hands-on lifestyle.  

In the multi-tenant building along the highway, a 4,500 square-foot end-cap space with a patio remains available.  In addition, there’s one last outlot that can accommodate up to a 12,000 square-foot multi-tenant or freestanding building for restaurant and retail uses.

North Shore Construction & Development Services is handling the project management for Scott Street Properties who purchased the land in 2006, making a calculated investment in a market with exponential growth potential along the bustling I-75 corridor where the cities of Cincinnati and Dayton continue to meld.  North Shore will start delivering building pads in November 2016 and turn over space in the multi-tenant building in January 2017 so tenants can begin opening for business in Spring 2017.  Scott Street Properties has been rather quietly making a big impact on the local commercial real estate scene, having participated in several high profile developments in recent years including Tri-Health’s fully integrated medical center along I-71, the Redstone of Kenwood office development and the Costco-anchored Florence Heights retail development in Florence, KY.
