Cincinnati-based Onsite Retail Group has been hired to market and lease the recently announced redevelopment of the former Walmart property at 419 S. Locust Street in Oxford, OH. The project will be spearheaded by Robert Fiorita, Jr., a Columbus, OH-based architect and developer, and his company RENVC Oxford Commercial, LLC. Fiorita, Jr. is also a graduate of Miami University in Oxford, OH. Marketing and leasing will be handled by Josh Rothstein and Kristine Davidson of OnSite Retail Group.
The new development has been named Bishop Square, and will feature 22,500 square feet of retail space in the mixed-use development that will have housing, office and retail. Fiorita, Jr. is planning a 68 unit/272 bed facility which many students will call home in the Fall of 2015. In addition to the retail space and student housing, the site will also house the 25,000 square foot relocation of Oxford’s Lane Library, plus two outparcels along Locust Street that could accommodate restaurants.
