  1. New study ranks how expensive overall it is to use CVG In addition to much lower airfares than a decade ago, Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky International Airport is more affordable than most when other costs like parking and a cup of coffee are factored in, according to a new study. The Points Guy travel website ranked the nation’s 50 busiest airports and found CVG is the 17th cheapest. McCarran International Airport in Las Vegas was the cheapest, while Newark Liberty International Airport in Newark, N.J. was the most expensive.

  2. Council gives key approval to first of three measures needed to make music venue a reality Cincinnati City Council on Thursday unanimously approved an ordinance making major changes to the cooperative agreement with Hamilton County at the Banks, the first of three ordinances needed to allow a music venue to be built on the riverfront. The amendments divide up the remaining undeveloped parcels up for development by either the county or the city. The deal would allow a Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra-developed music venue on Lot 27, with green space that could be used for outdoor concerts on Lot 23, while the county also would have a free hand in developing lots 24 and 25. Meanwhile, the city will get control of lots 1 and 13 just north of Paul Brown Stadium. CSO subsidiary Music and Event Management Inc. is spending $26 million to build the venue, Mayor John Cranley said.

  3. Mapfre Stadium redevelopment negotiations to move forward after state commission vote A state commission on Thursday voted to move forward on a plan that could eventually allow the Columbus Crew SC and the city of Columbus to use state land to build a $30 million Crew training facility and community sports park at the site of Mapfre Stadium, despite lingering concerns from many members about the project. The Ohio Expositions Commission voted to allow the Ohio Department of Administrative Services to negotiate with the Confluence Community Authority, an entity controlled by the Crew, the city of Columbus and Franklin County, on plans for the site. The soccer team recently scaled back its vision for the Mapfre site as a result of commissioners' previously expressed concerns. The Crew now hopes to expand its existing 17-acre lease (set to expire in 2023) by 23 acres, to accommodate the development of the community sports park.

  4. Project Update: Adelphi Quarter Despite holding a ceremonial ground breaking last summer, actual construction work has yet to begin on Adelphi Quarter, the 130-unit mixed-use development planned for 818 E. Long St. That may change soon, although a recent update provided by the developers of the project – Borror and Kingsley & Co. – did not identify a firm start date. “We anticipate starting in the upcoming months…we continue to work towards making sure all the pieces and parts are aligned to insure the most successful project possible,” said Borror Senior Vice President of Development Matt Canterbury. “This is going to be a project that is a catalyst for responsible growth for the area.” More below: https://www.columbusunderground.com/project-update-adelphi-quarter-bw1

  6. Go inside Taft's 'modern and different' Columbus brewpub Taft’s Brewing Co. had its eyes on Columbus, but it took the Gravity project to get the Cincinnati brewery to commit. “We’re not doing this just to do it,” managing partner Dave Kassling said. “We’re doing this because of this development.” The craft brewery will open its Taft’s Brewpourium Columbus at 440 W. Broad St. in Franklinton at 5 p.m. Friday. More below: https://www.bizjournals.com/cincinnati/news/2019/11/14/go-inside-tafts-modern-and-different-columbus.html

  10. Pan Am Layover Lounge popup coming to Franklinton, celebrating 'golden age of aviation' A Cincinnati operator of concept bars brought the golden age of aviation to its Tokyo Kitty karaoke bar this year, and the partnership with one of the biggest names in travel went so well that the creative hospitality company is expanding the popup to Columbus. Gorilla Cinema, the company behind the Overlook Lodge, Lonely Pine Steakhouse, Video Archive and Tokyo Kitty, last month partnered with Pan Am Brands to host the Pan Am Layover Lounge as a limited-time popup. It transformed Tokyo Kitty into an airline terminal from aviation's golden age and a layover lounge in an exotic locale served by Pan Am during its heyday. The experience was ticketed – and sold out within 72 hours. The goal was always to expand the experience if the pilot – pun intended – went well, and it did.

  11. Take a look at the Chicago brewery ready to open at Easton Forbidden Root wants customers to notice the copper hops hanging from its wall as much as the actual hops in the beer. That artistic touch hanging high above the soon-to-open Easton Town Center brewpub was proudly picked by co-owner Robert Finkel. So was an assortment of other decor and design elements, from the merchandise case made to look like an old icebox to the old John Deere cultivator wheels to the brick and tiles in the bathrooms. Much of the decor is symbolic of the brewery’s botanical and agricultural roots. All of it is representative of the operation’s approach.

  12. Affordable housing gets boost in Mayor Ginther's proposed 2020 Columbus budget Affordable housing and investment in struggling neighborhoods get a boost in Columbus Mayor Andrew Ginther's proposed $965 million city operating budget for 2020 – including doubling the housing staff in the Department of Development to 18. The Departments of Development and Neighborhoods are in line for some of the widest increases in the general fund proposal, overall up 5.6%, largely due to greater than expected income tax collections this year. Ginther's priorities for increased safety and reduced blight, such as more funding to combat illegal dumping, are key to making Columbus more attractive for employers to bring good jobs, the mayor said. “It’s about having outstanding city services, outstanding public employees providing those services to neighborhoods … and helping protect our opportunity and advantage for job creation and economic development," Ginther said.

  13. City Council poised to ratify Cranley-Portune deal on the Banks Cincinnati City Council probably will approve the first of three ordinances on Thursday that would ratify a deal between Mayor John Cranley and Hamilton County Commissioner Todd Portune on how to develop the remainder of the central riverfront. Council’s budget committee sent an ordinance to the full council that would amend the 2007 city-county cooperation agreement and divide the remaining undeveloped parcels up for development by either the county or the city. “These are the legislative pieces that will allow the music venue to move forward,” said Luke Blocher, the deputy city solicitor involved in the negotiations.

  15. Molly Wellmann has completely redone Japp's; take a look inside Cincinnati bar maven Molly Wellmann took over her flagship bar, Japp's since 1879, last summer, and over the past few months she has completely overhauled the interior to more reflect her personality. Now, that's fully on display. Japp's, at 1136 Main St., is nearly unrecognizable from what it was for years, since the former Wellmann's Brands took over in 2011. Gone are the pale greens and browns, and the pergola that dominated the entire entryway adjacent to the bar has been removed and replaced with a custom banquette. The old hair paraphernalia is gone from the streetside windows, which have been cleared out and now look in on the bar.
