One of the region’s largest homebuilders has broken ground on a new residential development in the booming College Hill neighborhood.

Traditions Building Group is developing Station Court, a residential community located at the corner of Hamilton Avenue and North Bend Road in College Hill. A groundbreaking ceremony was held Aug. 16 with Traditions Building Group, city of Cincinnati leaders and College Hill community leaders and residents present.

The neighborhood will include 31 detached residences as a part of Tradition’s City Series communities, which are all located in historic, walkable urban neighborhoods throughout Cincinnati. The homes boast modern, distinctive architecture; a 15-year LEED Silver Tax Abatement from the city; customizable interiors; private decks; and two-car attached garages, according to a news release.

The homes will start in the upper $500,000s and will range from two to three bedrooms, and two-and-a-half to three-and-a-half-baths. There will be several floor plan options, and homes will start at 2,000 square feet.

Station Court will build off College Hill’s growing momentum while also offering some of its own amenities. There will be a community park and walkable streetscape, all within reach of College Hill’s shopping and entertainment district. Food and drink options – like the recently opened Luminary by La Terza and James Beard semifinalist Kiki – are down the street on Hamilton Avenue.

Station Court will add to the mounting number of living options in College Hill. HaNoBe apartments is one of the most recent additions, and Station Court residences will share some amenities with the apartment community. The fitness center, dog park, meeting alcoves and reservable community room with an outdoor terrace will all be shared.

There will also be a community homeowners association that will care for multiple outdoor areas.

Doug Hinger, president of Traditions, said the homebuilder has been working on this site for six years, and soon Station Court residents will finally be able to add to the energy in College Hill.

“Hamilton Avenue in College Hill has become one of the most dynamic and exciting neighborhood shopping and entertainment districts in the city,” Hinger said in a release. “College Hill isn’t emerging … College Hill has arrived.”

Station Court will be the seventh City Series community built by Traditions. Previously City Series communities include Sanctuary Court in East Walnut Hills, Merrimac Square in Evanston, Fergus Street in Northside, Wyoming in the Village, Gold Street in Hyde Park/O’Bryonville and Cleinview in East Walnut Hills.

Traditions is the 13th-largest homebuilder in Greater Cincinnati, according to Business Courier research. Its 2021 local revenue totaled about $10.5 million, with 25 local housing starts.

Tradition’s community sales manager, Lori Roll, will be handling sales at Station Court.
