  1. I don't know what concrete plans may mean, but has absolutely been a part of the long term vision from the start. I do think they've mentioned waiting to be sure this one is successful befor breaking ground on the second tower. https://www.bizjournals.com/cincinnati/news/2016/03/10/50m-condo-towers-planned-for-downtown-cincinnati.html
  2. It's a bad idea. 1) It wasn't gifted by Mussolini. 2) It's not a statue OF Mussolini.
  3. The special prosecutor will somehow make this drag out until October 2021.
  4. "The FC Cincinnati stadium development is expanding to the north, with the team taking control of eight more properties between Wade and Bauer streets in the West End. The plan: Build a 1,000-space parking garage there, which would eliminate Wade Street between John Street and Central Avenue, according to a map given to The Enquirer by the team. The garage would be directly north of the stadium."
  5. 56 affordable apartments in 3 low rise buildings coming to Lincoln/Gilbert/Foraker. An $11m investment. $11 million residential development planned in Walnut Hills
  6. The old Myrtle's space will re-open as a new bar concept the first week of December. A new bar will open in the commercial space in The Henry next to Woodburn Brewery. A "high-end fitness" concept will open in the other The Henry commercial space.
  7. There's a mid-rise residential development in the works at Kemper and Francis Lane.
  8. No. He has an over-inflated competitive spirit, especially for politics. He doesn't like to "lose" and he has continually lost to Todd and Denise on this from the beginning. Not his preferred music venue operator, not his preferred lot, tried to kill it with the hilltop nonsense and couldn't. So, he keeps going. Same as we saw and continue to see with the streetcar.
  9. It is 100% a groundhog. We live very close to the Victory/McMillan intersection and there are at least two groundhogs that roam our and our neighbors' backyards.
  10. Reducing the city's earning tax is a bad idea. Asking for only 0.8% is a bad idea. Splitting the new sales tax funding between "infrastructure" and buses is a terrible idea. The only positive if these pass if that the bus system won't completely crumble but this certainly won't be the transit panacea the Chamber et al would like you to think. I'm will not support Issue 22. I'm on the fence about the sales tax simply because we need a functioning bus system.
  11. Sadly Cincinnati is not the only jurisdiction with this ridiculous policy.
  12. They get the abatement on the difference in value. Furthermore, the city's residential property tax abatement program only abates the first $275,000 in increased value (for the majority of abatements). Most property owners will not see an increase in property taxes solely due to property tax abatements. Again, the abatement is only for the increase in value due to the renovation/new construction of a particular parcel so it is as though nothing happened on that particular property in terms of paying property taxes. As has been mentioned though, folks will see a decrease in property taxes when abated properties begin to start paying taxes on the full taxable value. People are just bitching that the $700,000 new build is paying less in property taxes than the $180,000 house that's been there forever. But the taxes on the $180,000 home will not increase just because of an abatement on a new build.
