  1. That is a beautiful space. I love that interior courtyard/atrium. Would be great to see a well-designed restaurant go in there.
  2. Lol. Las Vegas NM doesn’t get a lot of tourists but those who make the trek usually are quite charmed.
  3. Las Vegas, New Mexico for the win! (I went to high school there and have many fond memories of dinners at the Plaza Hotel).
  4. @troeros - the Plum St condo plans and renderings were announced in the Historic Conservation Board packet from May 2017.
  5. Don't think so. Based on the elevation change and how they've designed it, the two buildings appear to be constructed at different heights and so the floors likely won't line up.
  6. City Council just approved tax abatements for the Uptown / North American Properties 207-apartment project at the corner of Eden Ave and University Ave: https://www.bizjournals.com/cincinnati/news/2018/12/20/city-council-approves-incentives-for-major-uptown.html Details on project were in the August 17 Planning Commission Packet: https://www.cincinnati-oh.gov/planning/about-city-planning/city-planning-commission/aug-17-2018-packet/
  7. 3CDC and DCI have merged, with DCI becoming a subsidiary of 3CDC: https://www.cincinnati.com/story/news/politics/2018/12/20/3-cdc-dci-merge-spur-development-south-otr/2368124002/ https://www.bizjournals.com/cincinnati/news/2018/12/20/downtown-cincinnati-inc-to-join-3cdc.html
  8. Did the Board members who voted "no" articulate why? The CityBeat article doesn't quote anybody from the Board who voted against it. I'm extra puzzled since at the same meeting they gave approval to "continue exploring plans for an update of the existing, WPA-built Trailside Nature Center by The Camping and Education Foundation."
  9. In addition to the taco window, they have painted a sign for "Holiday Spirits". I don't know what that means, especially since the "holiday" season is well underway and they're not near opening. Maybe they'll re-paint the sign seasonally?
  10. 3CDC wants high quality that is tailored to the specific space/needs of OTR. I don't think 3CDC is opposed to "chains" per se... they just don't want tenants with an overly rigid model try to plot down on Vine St without any consideration for what makes Vine St unique. A new concept from a successful local restaurant group is exactly what 3CDC wants on Vine St. You can deride Thunderdome for expanding outside of Cincinnati, but I don't think 3CDC (or most people) view that as a liability at all.
  11. Interesting! I was also confused when the article mentioned 3CDC since I didn't think they owned 1501. I guess they're just somehow helping with the commercial space.
  12. Thunderdome group is going to open a new Italian-themed restaurant, going into the commercial space at 1501 Vine St. This Enquirer article gets the address wrong (says it's going in at 1434 Vine), but I'm pretty sure the correct address is 1501 Vine: https://www.cincinnati.com/story/entertainment/dining/2018/12/18/thunderdome-opening-italian-restaurant-vine-street-otr/2336833002/ Here's the 3CDC brochure on the property: https://www.3cdc.org/wp-content/blogs.dir/3/files/2017/06/1501-Vine-reduced.pdf

    Cincinnati: Crime & Safety Discussion

    Did you reach out to Tender Mercies? What did they say?
  14. Very interesting. The RFP says the building needs to be completed in time for Fall 2019... That seems like a very fast turnaround. One of the requirements is that it'll be a "pre-engineered metal building"... I'm definitely curious how the design will look since they also state that the building is "designed to be sympathetic to the residential uses of Riddle Rd".
