  1. Have fun everyone!! If is wasn't for an ill timed lawn mower incident I'd be with you all exploring, sounds like a fun time. Hopefully we can do more adventure meet ups in the future. I poked my head into the Jackson brewery basements in the past (on an approved tour in the 90's) but never got to tour the upstairs because of the tenants (and dogs). Id love to see it's progress now that it has a real roof. Please post photos everybody!
  2. A buddy of mine just sent me this taken from the outside of the massive old school up there. It is its own little sleepy river town and just a few miles from the heart of downtown Cincinnati.
  3. Wonderful!! I was waiting for this dude to unload these. Hopefully someone finds a way to break them up so the entire neighborhood is no longer at the whim of one weirdo landlord.

  5. This is the project that the mayor annoyingly said "Beggers cant be choosers" when it became apparent that the original plan with preservations and walkability was changing to this. Maybe that describes the position HE was in being beholding to donors but the city had the power to force much better. We got this because the Mayor let it happen.
  6. Evan Millward had a pic of the new place "The Artistry" on Twitter. Curious if you all had any opinions,,,,,,,,,,,,,,just kidding of course you do!
  7. I saw a quote that not moving the substation would save 35million (which seems crazy) so they were going to wiggle more to the north to avoid it. Just what you need in your bridge, a 'wiggle'.
  8. Here is all the land that would be cleared for a new multilane exit to Spring Grove. https://www.google.com/maps/@39.1240302,-84.5359639,3a,75y,238.9h,81.91t/data=!3m6!1e1!3m4!1sgFfV76oDTELaLuneOscGLg!2e0!7i13312!8i6656 And all this to the North because ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ https://www.google.com/maps/@39.1249697,-84.5359915,3a,75y,317.82h,97.36t/data=!3m6!1e1!3m4!1s4UwR02eabKoC6U7Rnarkkw!2e0!7i13312!8i6656 In the photos you can see how far they are from the main viaduct itself.
  9. I guess ODOT just cant build near existing buildings anymore. I always liked how close the current span was to the buildings at spring grove but this version of the layout knocks down a whole block to the south for that wimpy ramp and a big old 6 story or so chemical packing company to the north just because i guess.The article mentions skewing north a bit to leave the sub station intact (which is why i thought they were building that new one on Beekman but i guess not) so maybe that southern block would be saved but I doubt it and guess everything between the current location and Jeurgens is on the cutting block now? https://www.wcpo.com/news/transportation-development/move-up-cincinnati/can-cincinnati-and-hamilton-county-save-money-on-the-western-hills-viaduct
  10. Just put a $2 toll on the Robeling. If people are changing their routine to save a dollar then they will change it to save 2 as well
  11. If Amazon said they moved to the West End for the history and urban environment and were going to be good neighbors without displacement then immediately took out a couple of blocks prior to getting designs done asked for tens of millions in tax breaks and millions up front and started kicking folks out as their footprint expanded we would see the same people make the same complaints. This is not about soccer or Berding himself (though he does have baggage from the PBS years) it is about how all of this is playig out and how the promises made upfront are not going in the interest of people who like well built urban environments. The urban environment we hoped would improve with such a large investment and influx of people going to games. That atmosphere could be wonderful if played correctly, I personally am disappointed in how it seems to be going so far, and even more so if it is surrounded by parking and a FCC run entertainment district that isolates it from the community in exchange for perceived 'safety'. I had high hopes, but we will see how it goes.
  12. ^^^ Thanks Much!!! I may have to take a day off for it. I saw the one for Stearns & Foster up in Lockland come down in a similar way where they just took a chunk out of the bottom and it tipped like a tree. With the base of this one up so high and in the middle of the site this may be way more dramatic. Sad to see it go though.
  13. I always assumed it was the H from here but i guess not. Looks like a different font and smaller.
  14. If interested and i can find the negatives I'll donate one of my night photos of the art deco entry to go with the collection of stuff. They were from before it got graffiti tagged on the stoneas well. Ive seen that H before in the background of urban explorer pics from the past just sitting up on the roof with some of the other letters. Pretty sweet finds! Is the smokestack going to be last? I'd like to try and get there to see it go.
  15. It's a MAJOR ANNOUNCEMENT!!!! https://www.cincinnati.com/story/money/2019/02/27/mayor-big-news-coming-ex-macys-fountain-square/3002219002/
