Location

Loveland is a city located within Hamilton, Clermont, and Warren counties in the southwestern part of Ohio in the Greater Cincinnati Area.  Located near exit 52 off of Interstate 275, but also accessible via State Route 48, Loveland is about 15 miles northeast of the Cincinnati city limits.  The City is 5.2 square miles, bordered by Hamilton, Symmes, and Miami Township. Loveland grew around the railroad and Little Miami River.  We are home to a nationally recognized Little Miami bike trail, which appeals to our very active residents.  The City has plenty to offer in terms of employment, development opportunities, quality neighborhoods, and recreation activities.

There are four key areas within the City of Loveland in which business activity occurs:

  • The Commerce Park is zoned for light industrial and features a number of diverse industrial and commercial businesses located off of Union Cemetery Road in Loveland.
  • The Loveland-Madeira Road corridor extending from West Loveland Avenue to Kemper Road near I-275 is Loveland’s key retail area, featuring a variety of shopping centers, restaurants, office buildings, and other retail outlets.
  • The area along West Loveland Avenue includes a mix of small office and retail leading into the downtown.
  • The Historic District in downtown Loveland features small offices, retail shops, and restaurants. There are also many businesses that have chosen to locate in the Historic District that cater to recreational opportunities made possible by the Little Miami Scenic Trail and Little Miami Wild and Scenic River that run through the downtown.
