  1. Fascinating... what's its current condition? It seems like a lot of OTR was built just as modern plumbing (my building from 1870 was built with a single, shared wet closet per floor) was becoming standard. Were multistory outhouses the default prior to plumbing?
  2. I don't know for certain, but I'm afraid the trees on the south side of Liberty will be cut down when the road is narrowed. Does anybody know if the final/approved Liberty St plan will be able to save some/all of those trees?
  3. ^looks like new windows have gone into 1209 Jackson St... not sure what other work has been done.
  4. Sad to hear. I liked that spot. Hopefully something else will take over the space, especially as that corner of Walnut Hills sees more development.
  5. I like how the modern addition complements the rest of the original building. Will be interesting to see how well it is executed, but at least in the rendering, I think it looks good. https://luminaut.com/creations/towneplace-suites/
  6. Urban Sites is going to renovate 1225-1257 Jackson St. with 4,200 sq ft of commercial space and "33 dormitory-style units." I'm not sure exactly what "dormitory-style" means in terms of layout of kitchens/baths/etc. https://www.bizjournals.com/cincinnati/news/2019/08/08/council-approves-incentives-for-otr-housing.html The buildings are currently only 3% occupied, so it'll be good to get more residents and commercial space in that block. I'm curious if they plan to open up any of the brick wall along 13th St: https://www.google.com/maps/place/1257+Jackson+St/@39.1095549,-84.5144654,3a,90y,174.67h,98.51t/data=!3m6!1e1!3m4!1sRt00QVEzQjarjRPiv5V1uQ!2e0!7i16384!8i8192!4m2!3m1!1s0x8841b3fd7ebf97b3:0x41acf61c96e155ae
  7. That website page is OLD and has been around for years. Doesn't appear to be updated based on the latest news.
  8. I found this map, but not sure how up-to-date it is, since it still shows portions under "2017 construction": http://nkyriverfrontcommons.com/index.html?appid=8e0658ec1fe74c6eb656180a9a7aab9a The articles made it sound like the bridges are the only remaining pieces, but in fact most of the trail hasn't been built yet. I wish the articles would be cleared about what is currently built and when future portions will be completed.
  9. I didn't go, but I saw somebody confirm that funds went to WHRF.
  10. ^^11.5 miles is awesome. Is there a map showing where the trail will run? How much is already in place? Will the entire 11.5 miles be grade-separated?
  11. Correct. 3CDC is within their legal rights to sell the property. The new developer - like anybody - will have to go through the normal HCB approval process for new construction. The Community Council vote doesn't legally prohibit 3CDC from moving forward.
  12. Here is the specific lot/parcel/garden in question: https://www.google.com/maps/@39.1107689,-84.5170911,3a,75y,255.14h,88.72t/data=!3m6!1e1!3m4!1szieYzOhkczvU7vmnkQVEfg!2e0!7i16384!8i8192 It is owned by 3CDC. The director/manager of the garden, Chris Uihlein, presented at the meeting. He thanked 3CDC for working with his organization to find another spot for the garden, and asked the Community Council to support the garden by asking 3CDC to delay demolishing the garden until a new location could be found. 3CDC has confirmed that the parcel won't change hands until the new developer (not 3CDC) has all financing in place, permits approved, and designs approved by HCB. So, there's still some time to go before the property would transfer.
  13. The new Corryville Kroger is bigger than the old one, but it still is not a mega-Kroger, so it's not a direct comparison to the Oakley and Newport Krogers. Yet, it is almost always packed.
