Hamilton County LandBank to be recognized for prominent historic stabilization in OTR

Hamilton County Land Reutilization Corporation (LandBank) recently learned that it will receive a 2015 Special Recognition Award from Cincinnati Preservation Association (CPA) for the stabilization of 1706 Lang Street property in Over-the-Rhine. The award will be presented at CPA’s Annual Meeting and Awards Presentation, taking place Nov. 8 at 4 PM at the Renaissance Cincinnati Downtown Hotel.

Through its Historic Structure Stabilization Program, the Landbank assists in stabilizing important, vacant historic buildings in order to preserve these structures for future re-use and redevelopment. The Landbank has formed an advisory group made up of local preservationists to assist in prioritizing the use of funds. The Landbank has completed four stabilizations under the program in 2015. The stabilization of 1706 Lang Street was completed in June. The advisory group will next meet in December 2015.
