  1. Seems as good a time as any to ask: can anyone ELI5 what 3CDC is doing with their parking leases around the urban core and why they are doing it?
  2. Why in the world are we even building out this stupid trail. It should be surrounded by residential multifamily, but instead will be surrounded by the scourge of twentieth century America--"automotve retail." But don't you dare build townhomes near it. Infuriating. From the latest planning packet, my highlights:
  3. I’ve heard the issue there (and it was an issue from the start) was personality more than anything.
  4. Sorry if this is the wrong thread, but did anyone go to or hear about the Delhi community input meets that happened Monday and Tuesday of this week? Interested to see if plans were released. Interesting site, the former Remke.
  5. One wonders at the brush of fate that steered him away from a life spent in his mother's basement playing Dungeons and Dragons.
  6. When the port bought the lot there were comments to the effect of “yeah we could do something mixed use or office or residential... or we could build a convention center hotel WINK”
  7. The permanent stage will do wonders. The current temporary set-up feels awkward and Jerry-rigged from Vine Street and effectively cuts off the “public” from the “public space.” I’m on board if for that alone.
  8. Agree about the sheen of the brick, hopefully it remembers the exterior of 21C. As to having more money, I would imagine being in an opportunity zone helps. Seems like this large array of projects and Model's projects above Findlay rely on opportunity zones to a significant degree.
  9. well, now at least one team does.
  10. In fact It’s quite the opposite, there is not enough parking in the CBD during the weekday. At least in that area every lot is always full, and the street parking is often full as well, perhaps a result of vacancy rates in the surrounding apartments being extremely low. That area is picking up quite a bit. From Cheapside to Taqueria Mercado down to Government square, it’s quite a lively area of the CBD. Given the new restaurants, Main Street retail, and the low vacancy rates I mentioned, I wouldn’t be surprised if they did start construction on the second tower soon after completing the first.
  11. first confirmation I’ve seen construction is beginning, albeit on the garage podium, but I shouldn’t think there’d be any pause between that and work on the venue itself
  12. You’re coming at it like the shooters pick the places to shoot up. They don’t, they pick the victims, and the victims are where they are. Now that OTR development has hemmed these folks into basically one remaining area, it’s just natural that that’s where violence is.
  13. I was aimlessly dicking around admiring some of GBBN’s work and came across this page for a new ballet academy south of the Baldwin. No real renderings, probably isn’t even a solid proposal, and if it is, it sort of feels like the kind of thing we aren’t supposed to see yet (in which case mods might delete this, I don’t want anyone to lose their job ). Anyways, if there is a plan of this sort in motion it would obviously free up that corner for the county garage (if they aren’t still wedded to the two-garage idea; I know fcc really wants a single mammoth garage on site.) https://www.gbbn.com/work/cincinnati-ballet-academy-studio/?backProjectsAll=true
  14. It would honestly benefit stakeholders in the area to go to a city that has an established, world-class urban trail system (like Minneapolis) to see what surrounding developments looks like done right, because right now it does not seem like they have any idea what they’re doing. Shame, because Wasson Way has enormous potential. Seems destined to be squandered though.
  15. The Huntington Center was just bought for $24.5m by an investment firm out of NY: https://www.grouprmcusa.com Basically they buy Midwest (secondary market) office buildings at bargain prices because they think they’re undervalued based on market conditions. Interesting that the county assessed the Huntington Center’s value at $18m in 2018, and this firm considers $24.5 an attractive price. Not sure it means anything, but it caught my eye.
