  1. That would be great - but then why would the Port be spending money on the garages to fix them up if they are going to take them down?
  2. I wonder if these acquisitions are related to the Port purchasing the parking lot across from the Convention Center for a potential hotel site? They could use these garages for valet as opposed to building a new one.
  3. They did not really even give reasons... it has parking (even though minimums were eliminated and HCB should not speak to parking) and it within that silly one-story within the next building rule. "Its a big project - it did not receive excitement"...
  4. I agree another hotel seems like a no-brainer the AC seems very popular. But Condos and a speculative office building is a non-starter to get financing outside of tier-1 markets.
  5. Good news indeed. With floor plates that small and currently rated Class C office it would be very tough to find an office user so residential would be great. And adding ~400 more residents to 4th street would be nice as well.

  7. Were those the buildings that a group of people wanted to turn into all AirBNB rentals?
  8. The addition of tan vinyl siding is a nice touch as well. I wonder what the motivation was behind the desire to demolish the building? They cant use it for additional parking and do not seem to have any plan in place.
  9. https://www.cincinnati-oh.gov/buildings/historic-conservation/historic-conservation-board/september-24-2018-staff-report-and-attachments/ Latest HCB packet has been uploaded... looks like the former Boys and Girls Club at Liberty/Central (purchased by Fortus Group who is partnering with the elm and liberty project) is going to be demolished and replaced with a parking lot... I am wondering if this is to avoid building the parking garage part of the development? Disappointing to see as that is a major corner and opportunity for some height and density.
  10. I have a feeling these buildings are goners, hope im wrong. I wish they could at least somehow incorporate the facades of the buildings into whatever the plan is so it still has some character and not big blank walls everywhere. Overall - i am glad they are investing in the core but need to do it with a sense of place in mind, which i am not hopeful for.
  11. The City released a memo for the upcoming potential capital projects. http://city-egov.cincinnati-oh.gov/Webtop/ws/fyi/public/fyi_docs/Blob/4339.pdf?rpp=-10&m=1&w=doc_no%3D%273748%27 Some interesting notes - The "Dream Campus" would require $20-30MM of city dollars for their parking garage. - The Terrex Development at MLK / Reading is apparently still a long ways off - memo notes there is a $24MM financing gap (about half the cost of the project). If this project can't secure funding with UC already lined up as a tenant and solid developers behind the deal then it may be some time before anything gets built at the interchange. - There is a note about a $100MM renovation and alteration of the Central Trust/PNC Tower into a mixed use property. I imagine that the office space in that building is dated... would be great to get some more lower class office space offline and into residential. ( I would think this building would be a shoe-in for historic tax credits).
  12. 7th and Vine, I think that was a typo, I believe it was meant to be 7th and Race which is the McHanh's Store being developed into a hotel, which wjh2 mentioned. Unless I missed something too 7/Vine is the old provident building which has a residential conversion proposal as well.
  13. Along with Ingalls Building and Traction Building re-use into hotels...and potentially 7th/Race with the former McHanh's store.
  14. There will undoubted be *outrage*... it doesn't fit in with the giant parking garage across the street!
  15. Agreed - the amount of push-back on the previous proposals was entirely nimby driven using the "think of the children and the church and the parking" even though there were more spaces in the garage than residential units. And would have added public parking for the retail space. So now we are stuck with this for a generation.
