  1. City Council begins streetcar 'divorce' process Cincinnati City Council began to divorce the Southwest Ohio Regional Transit Authority from oversight of the Cincinnati Bell Connector streetcar on Wednesday, passing an ordinance that allows the city to hire a safety officer. It’s the first of several ordinances council will have to pass to seal the separation. The measure passed with a tripartisan majority: Vice Mayor Christopher Smitherman, an independent, Republican Councilwoman Amy Murray and Democratic council members P.G. Sittenfeld, Greg Landsman,David Mann and Wendell Young voted “yes.” The ordinance allows the city to spend $100,000 on the safety officer, a requirement in order for the city to oversee the operations of the streetcar. “The project needs to be reorganized,” Landsman said.

  2. Hamilton County has more than $1 billion in infrastructure needs along transit routes, study says Hamilton County has more than $1.17 billion in planned infrastructure projects along Metro bus routes, according to a new study commissioned by the Cincinnati USA Regional Chamber. The total is among nearly $2 billion in overall planned projects throughout the county, including those not along transit routes, according to the analysis by Stantec. Included in the total is the $335 million project to replace the Western Hills Viaduct with a new bridge and plans to secure the hillside above Columbia Parkway in the city. The chamber released the analysis on Tuesday night to bolster the case for a countywide sales tax levy that would boost spending on road, bridge and sidewalk projects along with the Metro bus system, which is run by the Southwest Ohio Regional Transit Authority.

  3. New townhomes break ground in downtown Springfield Downtown Springfield's newest housing development has officially broken ground. Center Street Townes, located on the corner of Center and Columbia Street, began digging for the first building's footers Sept. 11. The project's first model home to be open Spring 2020. The project consists of 34, three-story townhomes with a one car garage attached. Each townhouse will have two bedrooms and one and a half baths, complete with a nine-foot ceiling and an open trust ceiling system. All modern, energy-saving appliances will be used in each home, which are also described to have an urban, rustic "kind of feel."

  4. Former Wright Co. factory becomes Dayton's newest national park A number of buildings on Dayton's west side have been officially recognized as nationally significant structures. The Wright Company factory was listed on the National Register of Historic Places Sept. 9. This effort was led by local and national advocates, including aviation leaders Patty Wagstaff, Erik Lindbergh and David McCullough. U.S. Rep. Mike Turner (R-Dayton) also contributed to this initiative. Wilbur and Orville Wright built their first experimental airplanes in the back of their bicycle shop at 1127 W. Third St. Later, the duo formed the Wright Company in 1909, which produced about 120 airplanes in 13 different models. Industrial aviation also was introduced into the company.

  6. Braxton sets opening date for new taproom and barrel-aging facility Covington's Braxton Brewing Co. will open its third facility, one that embraces its native state's bourbon heritage, by the end of this month. Braxton is hosting the grand opening of its Braxton Barrel House in the former Fort Mitchell Remke Market building at 2501 Dixie Highway on Sept. 27. The taproom and barrel-aging facility is part of a redevelopment by 360 Property Partners.

  7. 12-Story Building Part of New Franklinton Proposal The developers behind the River & Rich project are bringing a plan for its second phase to the East Franklinton Review Board this afternoon. The first phase of the development, which opened last spring, consists of 230 apartments, a 300-space public parking garage and approximately 30,000 square feet of retail space. The proposed second phase calls for an additional 304 residential units, 48,000 square feet of office space and 397 parking spaces. The most distinctive feature of the proposal, though, is a 12-story tower that would sit at the end of McDowell Street, providing views across the Scioto River to downtown.

  8. $400K fundraising campaign aims to return 94-year-old Columbus-area library to its former glory Wagnalls Memorial Library has stood for nearly 100 years as the crown jewel and cultural hub of Lithopolis, the tiny town of 1,573 people about 25 minutes from downtown Columbus. But now, the 1925 Tudor-Gothic building has fallen into major disrepair. There’s rotting wood. The leaded glass windows are shot. And, most embarrassing for Library Director Tami Morehart, a water leak trickles down from the ceiling as she checks out patrons at the library’s circulation desk. “If you don’t look up close, it’s beautiful,” Morehart said of the building donated to the village nearly 100 years ago by Mabel Wagnalls, daughter of dictionary and encyclopedia publisher Funk & Wagnalls co-owner Adam Wagnalls.

  9. Dine-in movie theater opens in Kenwood Collection Envision Cinemas Bar & Grille has opened its second location in the Kenwood Collection. Envision Cinemas leased about 38,000 square feet of space on the second level of the more than $200 million mixed-use development in Sycamore Township. There are 12 screens at the Kenwood location, including a 24-seat private screening room for events attached to a mezzanine event space. Robbie Sosna, president and CEO of Envision Cinemas, said the response to the Kenwood location has been very strong. The Kenwood location had a soft opening at the end of August.

  11. City OKs Incentives for Downtown Indy Project The Indianapolis City-County Council has approved nearly $10 million in incentives toward a major mixed-use development in the city's downtown. The 13-story project from Denver-based Charles Street Investment Partners will include 213 apartment units, as well as more than 27,000 square feet of retail and office space. The council voted 20-5 to approve a 25-year economic development tax increment revenue bond totaling $9.8 million for the project. As part of the proposal, 80% of the TIF funds generated by the project will be used to repay the bond, with the remainder going to the city.

  12. First Look: Dick’s Dive Don’t expect smoked cocktails or the latest craft beer at Dick’s Dive. Instead there’s “beers your dad would drink,” mismatched chairs, zero clocks and zero windows. It’s the kind of place where you could easily loose track of time, just as Owner Quinn Allen intended. The bar is a tribute to Allen’s late father. The patriarch’s decades of bar ownership are memorialized on the walls and behind the bar at Dick’s Dive, representing a collection of neon signs and booze relics found in Allen’s parents’ garage and basement. The bar is situated below Harrison West neighborhood mainstay Zeno’s at 384 W. Third Ave. And Allen says for those that think Zeno’s is a dive, Dick’s Dive is an even “divey-er dive.” More below: https://www.columbusunderground.com/first-look-dicks-dive-sp1
  13. Inside the Ruth’s Chris Steak House opening in the Short North A nationally known steakhouse is getting set for its Columbus return. Ruth’s Chris Steak House expects to open Oct. 7 at 511 N. High St. in the Short North. It has taken over a pair of ground-level spaces beneath the Hampton Inn & Suites that previously were the Double Comfort and DeepWood restaurants. The DeepWood space had been vacant for more than four years. “We did a complete gut and rebuild,” General Manager Maria Policastro said Friday on a tour of the space. It’ll be a new look locally for the brand, which had been in Central Ohio for nearly two decades previously. Its restaurant at Crosswoods, which was an older, darker, more classically designed steakhouse, closed in 2016.
