  1. If they have the investors and billions of dollars to make it happen then I hope they go for it. Would be really cool for our region. Otherwise it will never happen.
  2. A name brand boutique hotel makes way to much sense not to happen. Traveling supporter fans is a big thing in mls, so I definitely think a nearby stadium hotel could nicely support traveling away fans, and greater cincinnatians who don't go to every fcc game but want to make an mini vacation from it (like nearby dayton). Only hotel options are still only cbd/banks/uptown. Still nothing in otr/west end.
  3. Article mentions Late Fed/Early March Opening Date...Tuesday to Saturday, will be open till 9 or 10pm, they haven't decided yet. Slightly disappointing that once again very few food entrepreneurs capitalize the late night bar crowd on weekends...I mean goodfellas line often stretches out the door for a block around 2:00am. Clearly there is demand for food after drinking, so why don't more otr dining options capitalize on this?
  4. Upcoming hcb packet agenda includes plan for 1905 elm Street to be rehabbed....Ive heard rumors from Rhinegeist employees that it will be a new brewery with a tap room. Glad to see more development especially right across the street from Rhinegeist...but Ive always saw that building as an opportunity for demo and building something more dense on that corner.
  5. I wonder if the new addition of billionaire Meg Whitman to the ownership group will help infuse an influx of cash to appropriately fund the additional development quicker?
  6. A 10 store building will be quite nice! I'm hoping that the daycare part is true. It's really hard finding a legit daycare in the urban core that is reputable. This might be a small thing, but that is a huge barrier for some younger millenial couples with kids to move down to the urban core because of the lack of quality day cares.
  7. Not sure in regards to that particular footprint, but the average typical hard rock casino hotel is around 12 stories in height.
  8. Im not a subscriber either, but from what I've heard is that the hard rock hotel will feature "Las Vegas" like features..Luxery suites, rooftop pool, night club on ground level, etc. I'm not if this is what the article talks about though in terms of the unique features of the hard rock hotel coming.
  9. I just wanted to add that I hope this building can finally have a long term tenant. It's a really strong spot that has a turn over for tenants. Picnic and Pantry was a nice little bodega type of store, and the Indian place was decent but really confusing. Hopefully boom box can stay longer than a handful of years.
  10. The new night club, "Ghost Baby" will open soon a few blocks down off on republic/Vine. The Jazz Bar will open in the Behlen Vine Street building in the spring, standard otr (a craft beer shop/tap room bar) will open a few blocks away on 15th and race. Bar Bar OTR by the Queen City Radio folks will open soon as well on race. I have a feeling they will ultimately be fine...but I do wonder if the recently renovated Columbia Building commercial space off of Walnut would have been better to some degree.
  11. Customer aquisition. Location always play a role for a business to be successful, but the aquisition of the customer via social media is just as vital. They have done an excellent job on exposing their brand through social media, creating "boom box stickers", etc. The thing about their off the beaten path location on main was that you typically didn't know it was their unless you found out through Instagram/Facebook. The guy who makes the buns isn't even their every weekend selling them...so I think that just really highlights how important social media is with driving sales and customer aquisition. I think this location will be fairly successful as long as they keep consistent hours, expand their menu a bit, and hopefully target late night folks who want to eat after drinking.
  12. Regardless if the demo requires a full year from once the process begins, they can surely finalize their firm plan once demolition is nearing to completion...
  13. I mean they have a firm plan I thought? Aren't they weighing the 3 options of the various hotel rooms with one option being a convention center expansion beneath and the other two options with no convention expansion with less rooms? There was an info graphic published by the business courier not to long ago regarding this.
  14. Probably less than 2. A dedicated connected convention center hotel is critical for most convention centers in US Cities. Convention Center officials are also very bullish on wanting to expand the center. I think that serves as a dual purpose project and will have a quick turn around time on getting this site redeveloped into a new name brand convention center hotel with an expanded convention center underneath the hotel.
  15. Inner city american youth hardly play anything but basketball due to space (harder to find large open fields in an urban environment), and easier barrier to entry (you just need 1 ball, and one hoop versus baseball gloves, baseball bat, baseball, make shift bases, potentially breaking someone's car window or house window). That's why baseball statistically struggles with the race gap between it's players.
  16. Yes that's what I meant, sorry. They also have a location opening in mason as well.
  17. Lunch spot Burrito Joe is closing Downtown... interesting enough, on the city beat article that was posted on Facebook the owner of the super popular Mexican place "Tortilla Garcia" asked if anyone knew the owner of the building and expressed interest in having a new location downtown. First mazunte and now potentially Tortilla Garcia? O dios Mio.
  18. I don't agree. Cincinnati isn't this dense mega city the size of NYC or Hong Kong. Cincinnati already has an abundance of parks from Eden park, Sayer Point, Smale Riverfront park, Piatt Park, Washington Park, Ziegler Park, Bellevue Park..not to mention the abundance of pocket parks through out the city. I say one of those parks needs to go. Preferably Findlay Playground. Build a dense mixed use structure that can help anchor north of liberty development up on Vine. A Mercer type project, with necessary parking, retail/resturaunts/bars would be a huge catalyst for speeding up development in NoLi.
  19. I believe so..ive seen some work being done and a coming soon banner. Even though 3cdc hasn't listed on their page.
  20. Urban sites is actively marketing that site for commercial space on their lease now page on their website. I'm guessing urban sites won't redevelop the site until the can sign a tenant for the space...which is kinda tricky since that area isn't the most attractive part of otr currently..might take a few more years imo. 3cdc owns that plot of land where the cell phone store is. I'm guessing we will eventually some large scale development at some point. Probably once the liberty street diet is finished, which is scheduled to start this spring.
  21. This would be amazing! Would be great for increasing pedestrian traffic around the library. This seems costly though? I wonder if 3cdc would be willing to partner with them on the residential portion.
  22. I've noticed new Hard Rock Casino billboards around 1-71 recently. Pretty sweet to see Hard Rock in Cincinnati in general, and I can't wait to grab a Hard Rock Cincinnati shirt for the novelty sake.
  23. Just saw on Carriage House Instagram story that they had recently purchased the blue painted 1208 Sycamore Street building and plan to bring a bar and a continuation of their airbnb business to that building with guest airbnb apartments above. For those who aren't familiar with Carriage House, they own the small white brick building thats tucked away in an alley on sycamore. The company is expanding, and offer unique airbnb suites worldwide, and I guess this is part of there next phase with the pendelton neighborhood.
  24. I believe one of the partners of this group is on UrbanOhioForum....I believe it's Tony Alexander? I didn't realize how many projects North Crown properties has in the pipeline for North of Liberty... 112 Corwine St 1614 Walnut 1618 Walnut St 1630 Walnut 100 E McMicken. 64 E McMicken. Somerset I also believe they are bringing a Beer Garden to the old proposed Hen of the Woods location on Main Street...but that could be a different developer.
