  1. Yeah, the dream would be to revitalize Camp Washington with Colerain being a lively business district like Hamilton in Northside. I'd love to ultimately see it get better connections to both CUF and Brighton/OTR. If those vacant lots near Marshall and Central Parkway ever get developed decently that would help it feel a little less cut off, and then similarly along the long strip of Harrison that connects to the West End and is currently a light industrial dead zone. But I think those scenarios are quite a ways off. I think the main challenge is the lack of decent single-family houses, which Northside has an abundance of. The street grid in Camp Washington is so chopped up by I-75 and Hopple. To increase the population of the neighborhood we'd really need to see some big apartment buildings, like the Crosely building, come online.
  2. https://www.wcpo.com/news/transportation-development/move-up-cincinnati/camp-washington-will-soon-lose-one-of-two-beloved-chili-parlors Not sure if this was already known, but the US Chili building was sold "to the Camp Washington Community Board, a neighborhood community development corporation, and the Camp Washington Business Association." They have ambitions for a mixed-use redevelopment. So, thank God, no AutoZone.
  3. A couple interesting notes from the latest CUFNA newsletter. Unfortunately I don't have copies of any of the images mentioned: And for The District:
  4. Was that at the Brewery District meeting? I went to a meeting at that brewery a year ago when they were supposed to open last summer. Glad they are finally close to opening. I remember the owner saying they would have food and outdoor seating along the unnamed alley along the west side. Seems like a great spot.
  5. I think Calhoun/Taft and McMillan would benefit most from 2-way conversion east of Vine St. Those are the stretches that feel like highways and lack much in the way of good urbanism. Between Vine and Clifton, even with them being 1-way, the development feels sufficiently dense that I don't really mind it. If anything it makes it a little easier to jaywalk when you only have to look in one direction.

I wonder who their target market is, an whether this is the beginning of a shift for the neighborhood. There are plenty of beautiful houses on the residential streets that still exist in Corryville.
  7. Not to get too off topic, but at the last CUF council meeting there was a discussion of the need for residential parking permits, especially with The District coming online soon.
  8. I know someone who works at the bookstore. They told me the store owner had a meeting with 3CDC and wants them to stay. They even offered them the old Tiffany's location, which is on the corner but less square footage. Not saying they won't eventually move for new construction, but it may not happen soon.
  9. Hints from 5/3 that there may be apartments in 3CDC's vision for the old Macy's building: https://www.cincinnati.com/story/money/2019/01/22/apartments-top-old-macys-fountain-square/2644775002/ Really just speculation at this point, but maybe good things are happening:

  11. It's truly a culinary tour of smells biking down through Mohawk and Brighton. You get the spent grain processing smell from Emmert on Dunlap, the hoppy/malty smells from Rhinegeist and Sam Adams, the smell of roasting coffee from Deeper Roots on Colerain/Bank, and finally the pickle warehouse on York St.
  12. Is anyone else getting cautiously optimistic about a potential Mayor Sittenfeld? I was never quite sure about his true stance on various issues, but he fought for the Liberty St. Road Diet, and now in this latest Enquirer article about pedestrians getting hit by cars (https://www.cincinnati.com/story/news/2019/01/08/pedestrian-crashes-cars-keep-hitting-people-cincinnati/2463813002/), he says this: It would be such a nice change from Cranley's lost decade.
  13. I noticed in the latest CUF Council PDF (http://cufna.org/Newsletter12-18.pdf) that it was reported the old medical office building at MLK/Riddle/Clifton is now owned by UC. So maybe we'll get something other than another medical building built there.
