Demolition of Jordan Crossing shopping center begins

Former Swifton Center site to become mixed-use

CINCINNATI -- Say goodbye to the former Jordan Crossing shopping center.

Crews began demolishing the large shopping center Thursday to make way for the MidPointe Crossing redevelopment.

Mayor Mark Mallory and City Manager Milton Dohoney Jr. were scheduled to preside over the start of the demolition.

The Port of Greater Cincinnati Development Authority bought the 25-acre site in February 2013. Crews began demolishing some of the smaller, vacant buildings in March.

The Port Authority hired O’Rourke Wrecking Company to demolish the shopping center. City officials billed the project as one of the region’s largest retail demolitions.

The shopping center at Seymour Avenue and Reading Road was originally known as Swifton Center.
