  2. With final approval, Liberty Street project may finally happen After nearly eight years of debate, the Cincinnati Planning Commission on Friday cast what may be the final vote to narrow Liberty Street in an attempt to reconnect the north and south parts of Over-the-Rhine. Liberty from Central Parkway to Sycamore Street will be reduced from seven lanes to six, with much the north side of the street having 24-hour-a-day parking. Effectively, that would take the street to five lanes at all times, reducing the width pedestrians have to cross and adding some developable land on the south side of the street. For most days, there also will be parking on the south side from 7 p.m. to 7 a.m. Monday through Friday and 24 hours a day on Saturday and Sunday.

  3. Columbus: New Station Downtown Offers Fast Charge for Electric Vehicles A new charging station was installed earlier this week that will offer drivers of electric vehicles in Columbus a fast-charge, curbside option for the first time. The new station, located at 174 E. Fulton St. downtown, features public art designed by students of the Columbus College of Art and Design (CCAD). On hand at a January 14 event to celebrate the launch were representatives of Smart Columbus, the Columbus Foundation, CCAD, and Greenspot, the New Jersey-based company that installed the station.

  6. Milo-Grogan Leaders Tackle Challenges of Gentrification Head-On Charles Thompkins was born and raised in Milo-Grogan, and has been actively involved as a leader in the neighborhood for decades. That involvement has ranged from serving as Chair of the Milo-Grogan Area Commission, to helping put on the annual Milo Fest, to organizing a holiday toy drive that is now in its 35th year. “I’ve been doing this kind of stuff for over 40 years, and with my wife [Melissa] along with me for 20-some years,” he says, “but it’s different now.” Change is coming to the neighborhood, and Thompkins recognizes that new strategies will be needed moving forward.

  8. Peek inside Kroger’s newest Kitchen 1883 restaurant Walk in to Kroger Co.’s new Kitchen 1883 restaurant in Anderson Township and it feels dramatically different from the supermarket giant’s other full-service Kitchen 1883 location in Union, near Florence. Huge windows on two sides bathe the space in light. The dining area has a more open feel and the bar is separated from the dining area and the open kitchen. Yet many things are remarkably similar as downtown Cincinnati-based Kroger (NYSE: KR) launches its second full-service standalone Kitchen 1883 restaurant (it also has a location in the food hall of its downtown store that features walk-up ordering, self-seating and a limited menu). The menu is exactly the same as the Union location, for now anyway. So are the prices. It aims to provide customers that same sense of comfort food done well.

Boring Company's underground people mover in Las Vegas coming along The soon-to-be underground people mover at the Las Vegas Convention Center is now almost six football fields long, according to a construction update from the Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority.

  14. Popular Irish bar near UD sold to Dayton businessman A popular bar near the University of Dayton has been sold. Flanagan's Pub, a long-running Irish tavern located at 101 E. Stewart St., was purchased for $400,000 by N&S Investments LLC in Springboro. The limited liability company lists Nicholas Keyes Jr. as an incorporator/associate/partner. Keyes is vice president of Dayton-based Key-Ads Inc., a family-owned outdoor advertising company. He was also a winner of the 2019 Dayton Business Journal Forty Under 40 award. It's unclear what Keyes plans to do with the property, but a change in ownership sometimes results in upgrades, renovations and other forms of capital investment. The Dayton Business Journal has reached out to Keyes and is awaiting a response. More below: https://www.bizjournals.com/dayton/news/2020/01/16/popular-irish-bar-near-ud-sold-to-dayton.html
