  1. The Gold Star Chili at Race and Elder was open at least until 1998: https://www.cincinnati.com/story/entertainment/2019/08/27/food-and-wine-gold-star-ohio-best-fast-food-cincinnati-chili/2131249001/ There seems to be more of this type of false history promotion lately, the new jazz bar on Vine St is claiming it is bringing back jazz to Over-the-Rhine when Schwartz's Point has been here for decades.
  2. Wasn't there supposed to be a green wall of some sort on the south parking garage facade? Value engineered out? EDIT: Found it, yes there was supposed to be a 100' long by 15' high wall of bamboo. https://spark.adobe.com/page/xBK0BLCy3A8TI/
  3. Most of these sites are just rubble filled as well from past demolitions. They probably wanted to have a clean and compacted fill as well as identifying any of the cellars/vaults.
  4. There are efforts afoot within the city to do just that. Not sure how far along they are in making it public, but I've had discussion with city staff on this issue and I know they are talking to other folks as well.
  5. And to clarify, just because CRC says they are opening the park again doesn't mean it will happen. And honestly, it has been frustrating working with them because while they closed the park to get a handle on the crime, there hasn't really been much work to keep it from happening again when it re-opens. We were promised improvements when they closed it but literally outside of knocking down a few walls to improve sightlines, nothing has been done. There are a lot of potential moving pieces, including the rec center, Findlay Park, Grant Park, Findlay parking lots, and the leftover piece of Findlay Park on Elm Street that could be moved around and/or re-imagined. In the midst of all this I've heard rumors of lots of things, but so far haven't seen anything concrete surface.
  6. Which would be historically interesting as the playground was originally where the north lot is, and the current park was the parking lot.
  7. Was closed to help deal with the criminal element hanging out there all hours of the day. Tentative plan is to reopen in spring/early summer. CRC has been applying for funding for capital park improvements to both Grant and Findlay. Unfortunately they have gone about this in a half-assed way so they are asking for money before there is even a plan in place for what the improvements would be.
  8. Yes. As the rest of the neighborhood densifies, open public green space will only become more important. That doesn't mean we can't get creative on integrating parking and development, moving assets around, etc.
  9. That's how it was traditionally scheduled but it played hell trying to plan year to year as Lent moves around a lot.
  10. Before the Brewery District took over planning it bounced around weekends and sometimes was in late February. Yes, this is a one time thing. There isn't a "rule" so to speak of, but we have found consistency on holding the date to work best for planning. Next year it will be March 5-7, 2021.
  11. Have heard rumors this relocation may be happening, but nothing about what may go there.
  12. Politically, it is not out of the woods yet. The chief building official Art Dahlberg still would like to tear it down, at least the most damaged portions. We've been successful holding off to date to at least give the owner time to get a stabilization plan developed by SSRG.

  13. But the city owns the north Findlay lot and is not part of the deal. As @jwulsin stated the Model lots on the north side of Elder are the location.
