The apartments situated on top of the forthcoming downtown Kroger location at Central Parkway and Walnut Street now have a name: 1010 On The Rhine.

The development — a collaboration between Rookwood Properties, North American Properties and NorthPointe Group — will feature 139 luxury apartments with 12 different floorplans ranging from studios to one- and two-bedroom spaces. According to a release, "Residents will experience expansive, unobstructed views of Cincinnati through floor-to-ceiling windows, with select units including large private balconies that give a taste of the city’s energy from above." There will also be a rooftop deck.

Slated to open this fall, the units in the 18-story building will sit directly on top of the new 45,000-square-foot, two-story Kroger (which is reported to have a bar, food court and other amenities) and a 560-unit 3CDC parking garage. 

As for the name: “1010 is not only the actual address of our building, but alludes to a door opening or rebirth,” said Mark Kanter, vice president of Rookwood Properties, in a release. “1010 is the perfect name to encapsulate the all-inclusive revitalization of Central Parkway and Court Street, or the On The Rhine neighborhood.”

Nearby, 3CDC is also developing its Court Street Condo project, which will add 16 residential units and 6,500 square feet of street-level commercial space to Court Street. And in February, the city announced the development of a task force which will look at creating more pedestrianized and walkable spaces in that area of downtown.

At the announcement, Mayor John Cranley said he’s interested in studying whether to dedicate “some or all” of Court Street to pedestrians to create a place where people can congregate and perhaps patronize new retail locations that may arise as the block sees redevelopment.

“We have felt very strongly at 3CDC that, although we’ve made some progress in Over-the-Rhine, this area south of Central Parkway and north of Fountain Square needs some love and attention,” 3CDC President and CEO Steve Leeper said at the announcement. “We’ve been referring to it as no-man’s land, and we don’t want it to be that anymore.”

In the 1010 On The Rhine release, Development Manager for 3CDC Katie Westbrook said, "All of these projects, in conjunction with 1010 On The Rhine, will help continue to bridge the gap between the vibrancy seen in the Fountain Square District and Over-the-Rhine.”
