Developer to build single-family homes in East Price Hill

A local developer has plans to boost redevelopment in East Price Hill’s Incline District, beginning with the construction of over two dozen single-family homes.

The homes will be within eight blocks of each other and are estimated to be in the $400,000 price range, according to a recent release by Autumnwood Group.

Kim Knoppe, home builder and Cincinnati native, hosted a groundbreaking ceremony on Monday at 658 Hawthorne Avenue. City council members David Mann and Betsy Sundermann attended the event along with several Price Hill residents.

Kim Knoppe, owner of the Autumnwood Group, takes about his long history of growing up and living in the neighborhood during a ground breaking ceremony in East Price Hill's Incline District in Cincinnati on Monday, July 19, 2021. A series of new, modern homes with two-car garages, multiple bathrooms and bedrooms are slated to be built in the west side neighborhood, the group announced.

Jim Grawe, founding member of the Price Hill Historical Society, told The Enquirer that he attended the event to support Knoppe’s new development. He said Knoppe’s homes will blend in with the historic architecture surrounding it.

“I always knew that even though we were restoring homes, what the neighborhood also needed was quality new construction,” Grawe said. 

Knoppe said he wanted to create a “wonderful single-family community” that would raise local home values and motivate young people to remain in the area.

While describing how this project will attract new residents, he referenced a quote from the 1989 film Field of Dreams: “If you build it, they will come.”

Knoppe said these new homes could entice new shops and restaurants.

During his speech at the event, Knoppe mentioned his deep roots in East Price Hill, growing up on Grand Avenue.

“This is home to me,” Knoppe said.

In the release, Knoppe described the project as “something that would lift up the entire neighborhood.”
