Open House – 4100 Fergus – 11/12/15

4100 Fergus - Open House Flyer

NEST (Northsiders Engaged in Sustainable Transformation) is excited to announce an Open House this Thursday, November 12, 2015 from 6:00-8:00 pm.

The location is 4100 Fergus St. (corner of Fergus and Knowlton), smack dab in the middle of lots of neighborhood development!  NEST acquired 4100 Fergus through the City Land Use Re-utilization Program, to prevent the building from being torn down. Local developer 8K Partners joined with NEST in a successful effort to save this historic building, and later purchased 4100 Fergus for rehabilitation. Stop in Thursday to see the beautiful results and to learn more about NEST’s work throughout Northside!

 

Visit NEST at the 2015 Northside Porch Tour

PT2015Don’t miss the Northside Porch Tour, October 10th, 2015, from 6:00-9:00pm.  NEST will be at Jergen’s Park for the festivities, so come join us and hear about current and future projects.  We’ll have photos of some of the many impressive projects we’ve already completed in Northside – and previews of our next homes.


 

The Northside Community Council’s Porch Tour returns this year, 6-9 p.m. on October 10th, departing from Jergen’s Park, at the corner of Hamilton and Bruce avenues. Mark your calendars and plan on attending a neighborhood streetscape celebration unique only to Northside.
Thousands of luminaries will light the pathway along another new route including the full length of Haight Avenue, North and South Argyle, and portions of Hamilton Avenue.

Evanston Kinney, will greet your ears at Jergen’s Park; the Citizens on Patrol will be grilling hot dogs, and a neighborhood youth group will hold a bake sale. Two 20-person carriages will again tour the route, complete with an architectural interpretation of the houses and porches. Tickets are available at the event and are based on a sliding scale of $4 to $10 per ride, depending on the amount you personally would like to spend to support the event. The goal is to sell ample tickets to offset the cost of the carriages. Special thanks goes to the Northside Community Fund of The Greater Cincinnati Foundation this year for offsetting the cost of the live music and over 1,000 luminaries being furnished without cost to every household along the tour route.

For more information or to volunteer for the event, contact Tim Jeckering or (513) 520-7112
