  1. ^ because then Cranley gets to take credit for double the road-paving miles?
  2. jmecklenborg[/member] care to share those fantasy maps? What program do you use?
  3. That top image makes me think of what parts of Queens looked like when subways were initially constructed out into literal fields in the 1920s. https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Queens_Boulevard,_New_York_City_(1920).jpg
  4. To be fair, this is the view from 14th and Elm looking west. The Monster building is a very tall 6/7 stories, and looks like it's barely peaking out from behind the buildings in the foreground. https://www.google.com/maps/@39.1101295,-84.5183478,3a,75y,252.95h,101.03t/data=!3m6!1e1!3m4!1s8qOfXKTJpYnNckgwlsRpNg!2e0!7i13312!8i6656 You could easily put a modern 8 story building behind Music Hall. I'd advocate for higher elsewhere along the parkway.
  5. Does it really change color....?

    The buildings and holdover streets in the bottom right corner are not long for this world.

    One of the issues I see with this site is that I'm sure there will be height restrictions put on the surrounding plots of land. I would like Central Parkway to be redeveloped into high rise buildings at least as tall as the Monster building, which means that the upper floors will have a clear view into the stadium. It would be a shame to be left with awkwardly short, less dense buildings along CP once we're done.

    I prefer this spelling to Cincy any day of the week. The 'y' is beyond kitschy. edit: spelling
  9. All of that public money and zero affordable housing units. I'm a bit baffled as to why they can't throw 20 affordable housing units onto a project like this -- they wouldn't need parking places. Guarantee that 3/4ths of the market-rate apartments don't "need" car spots either; they just want them. Our public policy refuses to differentiate between the two.
  10. At this point they should just go for it and make the parking garage taller than the County Building.

    Cincinnati: Mayor John Cranley

    Links? Screenshots?
  12. Residents that use the Mercer garage and commute outward free up spaces for those who commute into the area. I know that. But I also know that that's not how Cincinnati usually thinks about allocating parking resources.
  13. I still can't believe that we got a substantial building built without a single additional parking space.
  14. So something like the Emery Arcade that predated the Carew Tower?
  15. Said it before and will say it again: this would be perfect at the W&S HQ at the corner of 3rd and Broadway.
