  1. Oh, hooray... now Cincinnati can have Apodments like I lived in in Seattle. I hated loved my 27sf bathroom and 9" kitchenette sink.
  2. Last night at the OTR Made Awards it was announced that American Soul & Jamaican food restaurant Flavors of the Isle will be moving into the Pho Lang Thang space in Findlay Market. I had some of their food last night and although I can't speak for authenticity because I've got no soul and I'm not a Jamaican food expert, it was very delicious and I think it will be successful. Boombox Buns will also be moving into the former Injoy/Picnic and Pantry space on Republic across from Salazar and Low Spark and just down the street from Ghost Baby.
  3. Cement, a critical ingredient to concrete, is one of the largest contributors to green house gases on the planet. Cutting its use will pay dividends for the future of the planet. I can't necessarily tell if this was a driver for Populus/Elevar/FCC, but it is in other architecture offices, and it should be for all folks involved with the building industry. https://www.theguardian.com/cities/2019/feb/25/concrete-is-tipping-us-into-climate-catastrophe-its-payback-time-cement-tax
  4. This project looks SO MUCH BETTER than Cincinnati's AC Hotel. The texture, the window details... Congrats, Dayton.
  5. How does the path extension connect to the sidewalk expansion through the Kroger lot? Would it happen behind the building? Would you bike on the sidewalk from Pocahontas?
  6. This is why Strava is a good thing, HEAT MAPS: https://www.strava.com/heatmap#7.72/-83.70677/40.21618/hot/all Also, it has gamified running and cycling and built strong communities of active travelers.
  7. Perfect timing. I just got back into using my Strava account!
  8. Color changing shipping container architecture is, perhaps, the post-apocalyptic aesthetic moment we are at right now. And if not, the aesthetic moment we deserve. "Refined and sophisticated" for me would require richer material. Maybe it will have a glazed tile base. Then it will be refined and sophisticated. I don't disagree that it will stand the test of time, but only as a background building. Which is totally cool. Not every building, especially domestic buildings, need to be ostentatious.
  9. Architecturally, I find it odd to see John Senhauser go from the iconic skin of Encore to the very restrained and somewhat pedestrian surface of this building.
  10. Issue 7 is kicking off at The Factory in Northside on Tuesday, February 11 and if you care about a greener future for Cincinnati and Hamilton County, I invite you to RSVP and get involved. Issue 7 is a necessary issue for the future of transportation in Hamilton County and I think it is well designed. The issue unites two commonly seen adversaries by building a coalition between folks who commute by personal automobile and folks who commute by public transit. When Hamilton County votes YES and passes Issue 7, people will see critical upgrades being made to major streets in our county that make our roads safer and more efficient for everyone. This is a win-win https://moveforwardcincy.com/overview/
  11. Are we talking about Issue 7 anywhere? https://moveforwardcincy.com/overview/ Issue 7 is kicking off at The Factory in Northside on Thursday, February 11 and if you care about a greener future for Cincinnati and Hamilton County, I invite you to RSVP and get involved.

  12. I think he is a solid enough arguer to stand his ground on his positions without shifting to center. He's endorsed Warren and I hope he would do like Warren and get more populist as he meets more people in the city and understands their positions on the streetcar. I think, overwhelmingly, people believe the streetcar will be a great piece of transportation once it goes to uptown and would anticipate him pushing for a study... hopefully the Main Street Tunnel to Christ Hospital option that John Schneider and Jules Rosen have been championing.
  13. Doubtful... for one, the angle of the sun in the summer is so sharp that when the pool is open, shadows from a tall building wouldn't even reach the pool.
  14. Gensler designed the building, but I would redirect your criticisms to the owner/developer. The designers don't get to decide how much space to build.
