DoorDash gets green light to open East Side delivery service hub

Cincinnati Enquirer logo Cincinnati Enquirer 1/5/2021 Jeanne Houck, Cincinnati Enquirer

DoorDash plans to open a new food-delivery service hub in a portion of a Sycamore Township industrial building.

The township Zoning Commission recently agreed to allow the business to make improvements to about 6,700 square feet of leased space in the multi-tenant building at 8469 Blue Ash Road.

The improvements will accommodate DoorDash’s plans for offices and for the storage of food and household goods its employees will pick up there and deliver to customers, a Green Township architect representing the building’s owner said.

In paperwork filed with Sycamore Township, James Ritter of Professional Design Associates said DoorDash hopes work at the space that has been vacant for 10 years will be complete in April.

The space the business is leasing is in a 35,480-square-foot building that formerly housed a company that made louvers and dampers for the heating, ventilation and air-conditioning industry, Ritter said.

He said a photography studio and woodworking shop are long-term tenants of the building that now primarily houses service-industry providers.

DoorDash needed a green light from Sycamore Township’s zoning commission to use the space because the building is in a residential area with restrictions the township approved in the past that allow current tenants to operate there.

“This type of business (DoorDash) seems compatible with the other services already in the building and the general neighborhood along Blue Ash Road,” Ritter said in the paperwork he filed.

He said eight to 10 DoorDash employees will be onsite daily, that bulk delivery of food and household goods will be made once or twice a week at the building and that 20 parking spaces will be needed for the cars, pickup trucks and small vans employees will use to pick up deliveries.
