Two companies that would be neighbors of the relocated Drop Inn Center in Queensgate are expressing concerns about the plan.
A city council committee heard from proponents of the plan two weeks ago, and Tuesday it heard from representatives of two companies that say they need more information.
Richard Posey is with K4, an architecture, design and construction firm with a facility in Queensgate. He said one issue is security and safety for employees.
Construction on the new Drop Inn Center could begin later this summer and the facility could be open in August 2015. It will be moving from its current location in Over-the-Rhine to Queensgate.
A Cincinnati Council committee received an update on the project Tuesday from Executive Director Arlene Nolan. She said several sites were considered before one was selected.
Update: The $7 million Cincinnati is borrowing to relocate homeless shelters will only be used for two projects and not three as earlier reported. Council Member Chris Seelbach said City Manager Milton Dohoney, Jr. mis-spoke Wednesday when he said the funds would benefit three shelters.
