Butternut Bread demolition begins for new homeless shelter

Posted: Updated:
QUEENSGATE, OH (FOX19) -

Demolition began Tuesday in Queensgate at the former site of the Butternut Bread Bakery to make way for a new Drop Inn Center.

Greater Cincinnati's largest homeless shelter is moving from Over-the-Rhine to the intersection of Dalton Avenue and Gest Street. The board at the Drop Inn Center deemed its current location not practical to renovate.

Part of a five shelter system, the Drop Inn Center said they chose the Queensgate location due to its accessibility for the downtown homeless population.

3CDC is developing three of the five new shelters, including the new Drop Inn Center.
