  1. Understand that they are highlighting the stadium in the renderings, but would really love to see a render with the background buildings colored in too. The number of "people" in the in-stadium shot looks way too high to me as well.
  2. hi all - Coming back to Cinci for christmas and want to go to dinner with my girlfriend (first time in Cinci) and my parents. Been out of the restaurant loop for a while since moving away. Any recommendations of good new-ish places to eat in cinci proper?
  3. ^ because then Cranley gets to take credit for double the road-paving miles?
  4. jmecklenborg[/member] care to share those fantasy maps? What program do you use?
  5. 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
  6. 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.
  7. The buildings and holdover streets in the bottom right corner are not long for this world.
  8. 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.
  9. I prefer this spelling to Cincy any day of the week. The 'y' is beyond kitschy. edit: spelling
  10. 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.
  11. At this point they should just go for it and make the parking garage taller than the County Building.
  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.
