Ex-Roberds site demolition planned as West Carrollton eyes entertainment district

West Carrollton is hiring an engineering firm for the demolition of Carrollton Plaza.

The city bought the 13.75-acre former home of Roberds off Interstate 75’s Exit 47 and planned to tear it down with the goal of redeveloping the land. Officials want to make the site a cornerstone for a multi-million dollar entertainment district plan along the Great Miami River.

The city is hiring Patriot Engineering and Environmental Services Inc. in a move approved by city council last week. The Indianapolis-based firm will be paid no more than $30,000 to oversee the demolition of the buildings at 1100 to 1192 East Dixie, according to city records

The city bought the buildings in May 2017 as part of a $3.2 million project to redevelop the land. It is one of several demolition projects along Dixie in an effort to reshape that corridor.
