    Cincy-made, Brooklyn by way of Silver Spring Denizen. Gay beer drinker, gamer, urbanist and subway rider.
  1. The development in Downtown Brooklyn is getting crazy! How many years do we think it will take for Fulton Mall to become fancy mall?
  2. As nice as some have been, I think it is important to recognize that sometimes the initial and final products are wildly different, as can be seen with Audi Field. https://www.si.com/planet-futbol/2016/01/27/soccer-stadium-renderings-design-changes I hope we still get a very nice stadium, but I personally feel the first design for Audi Field was so much more appealing than the final product.
  3. Capital One Arena (Long live Verizon Center) also does an excellent job of being located in a Human Scaled Place. They are able to keep 7th and F open during games, would it really be bad for FC Cincinnati if Cincinnati kept Central Parkway open? Perhaps a wider sidewalk or a true plaza could also work?
  4. I have always said Cincinnati is a mix of Pittsburgh and Louisville.
  5. Cincinnati was denser. Then I-75 happened and much of the West End was destroyed (see tragic historic photos). Can we imagine Cincinnati if Queensgate did not exist? It'd probably be more like Baltimore, believe it or not. I fear the West End likely would have fallen into disrepair like OTR and the remaining West End did, and Cincinnati may have had its own version of West Baltimore. Baltimore like Cincinnati? Nah, I have never thought that and I lived in Maryland for nine years (and will forever wish I still did). I always thought it was the little brother of Philadelphia, and I have never viewed Baltimore as a southern city the way I view Cincinnati (lovingly refer to Cincinnati as the most southern city of the North). Perhaps we should have a philosophical discussion of what city Cincinnati is like in City Discussion? To bring this back on topic. Skystar forever staying in Cincinnati would certainly be a blow to Newport. However, it would be one more attraction at the Banks, and if the Reds and Bengals are going to continue to be cellar dwellers then Cincinnati needs more carrots to draw people the Banks! Perhaps Smale Park could be finished?
  6. Wow, the Brooklyn Han Dynasty is so unabashedly Philly. I mean, they wore the Eagles shirts for months, might even be doing it now! To place this on topic, perhaps Han Dynasty could open an OTR location!
  7. Dayton's craft beer scene is great indeed, but Deerfield Township is not Dayton, Bizjournals. Anyways, yay for a new brewery!
  8. Are you sure about it being one of four designs? The article states that it is at the first of four stages of design, not that it necessarily one of four design options. This said, the article also acknowledges that additional modifications and adjustments are expected, so we will see what is final. I like it! Should be an awesome stadium!
  9. Yeah, that does look like a nasty yield. (And this is coming from me, a Professional Traffic Engineer that previously was the MDSHA Traffic Team Leader for Montgomery County). A hard yield like this is a very unexpected condition on an interstate or interchange. I hope ODOT has double posted 48"x48" yield ahead signs prior to the yield. If not, I recommend you requesting them. (Sorry, I live in Brooklyn these days, haven't been a Cincinnati resident in 10 years. If I lived in Ohio, I would request for you.)
  10. Sadly, I see nothing in that article referencing potential for Signal Priority, Preemption, or precluding movements at intersection to more efficiently move the streetcar. This being said, retiming and entire grid system is an epic task. I wish them luck. I'm about to work on my own epic signal timing evaluation in another city. Sure to be a fun time.
  11. In Maryland we love the Alternate (Zipper) Merge. They should be the preferred lane transition nationwide!
  12. He is a traffic engineer's dream! In a congested scenario he is maximizing capacity! Use all the lanes!
  13. To me the building looks straight out of DC. It screams height limit (or in DC's case, Height Act, see all boxes / rectangles in DC)
