Dorothy Lane Market, the gourmet grocer that has become a Dayton institution, plans to open its first Greater Cincinnati location as part of a $150 million mixed-use project.

Dorothy Lane, known by devotees as DLM, will anchor a to-be-named mixed-use project in Mason at the corner of Mason-Montgomery and Western Row roads, land that was formerly the Western Row Golf Course. Traditions Building & Development Group is co-developing the project with Western Row Land Developers, the property owners.

The 70-acre mixed-use development will include 80,000 square feet of specialty retail and restaurants, a boutique hotel and about 120 residential units. The project is expected to go before the Mason Planning Commission on Nov. 2. Pending those approvals, groundbreaking on the Dorothy Lane Market and first homes is expected in 2022.

Tom Humes, president of Traditions Group and project codeveloper, said he wants to create a welcoming experience and lifestyle opportunity for shopping, eating and living. The best anchor for that project, he said, was Dorothy Lane Market.

“What Dorothy Lane stands for could not more accurately portray what our community stands for,” Humes told me.
