"East End Developing into Upscale Neighborhood"

The East End stretches along the Ohio River from Downtown Cincinnati to California and runs almost the entire length of Columbia Parkway and encompasses Lunken Airport. The area has been cleaned up a lot in recent years, especially the area closest to Downtown. A lot of new construction has taken place with some gorgeous town homes taking the place of the former run down old homes and businesses. However, there are still number of old, somewhat dilapidated looking homes in this area.

There are a few restaurants and bars along this stretch of town, but not really any shopping options. There are no grocery stores in this neighborhood, but there are several within a relatively short drive. As the East End is a community that runs next to the river, there are number of businesses related to boating and other water activities.

Housing in this area ranges in price from relatively low to very expensive, depending on if it is old or new construction, a house or a condo. There is something for everyone in this neighborhood. However, as the East End is a community along the river, it is subject to flooding, so take that into consideration when looking for a home. As it is near the river, you can also get a place with easy access to the water or a one-of-a-kind view. There is still a lot of new construction going on so there will continue to be changes to this neighborhood. With all the new construction, residents of this neighborhood are changing from lower income to average or above average income residents.
Pros
  • lots of new construction
  • wide range of housing choices
Cons
  • it floods
  • bit of a drive to the grocery
