This team identified a high percentage of vacancy of industrial warehouses facing Colerain Ave and vacant land in the northern portion of Camp Washington. In addition to this, vacancy is a problem with blighted housing and commercial/retail properties within or near the two residential pockets (north and south of Hopple St) in the community. Because of this, the student team work decided on two different program proposals to help the residents as well as the neighborhood as a whole to improve and renovate their residential base and improve commercial/retail uses essential to community life. While the first alternative attempts to connect the two residential areas, the second alternative focuses mainly on the northern residential cluster of camp Washington. Both proposals involve new infill residential development, adaptive reuse of vacant manufacturing buildings, and new housing block plans.
