Giving places new purpose

to strengthen Hamilton County communities.

When properties are productive, communities benefit. Our mission is to put properties back to productive use to transform communities one lot at a time.

Update: Vacant Lots Will be Reposted to the Website on August 16th

Vacant lots have been temporarily removed from the Landbank’s website as we assess opportunities for new housing throughout the County. If you are interested in purchasing a vacant lot from the Landbank please submit an inquiry on our Contact Us page, and someone will follow up with you about next steps once vacant lots become available: 

Through rehab, stabilization or new-build

We operate a market-rate housing program as well as a historic structure stabilization program to prepare properties for new owners.

Through new owners with a plan

We work to sell properties to people and organizations with a transformative vision. Have an idea for a property? Let us know!

Through community partners and municipalities

We collaborate with communities and local government to ensure properties are repositioned in alignment with community plans.
