  4. Scioto Peninsula: Here’s More Info on the New Proposal Last week’s big news about the Scioto Peninsula was the first update on plans for the well-positioned piece of land in over a year. We know now that three different developers have been selected to build the first phase of the project – two from Central Ohio, one from Indianapolis – and that those developers have been working with the Columbus Downtown Development Corporation (CDDC) to come up with an outline of what that first phase will look like. Today we have more information about those initial plans to share. Read on for details on the planned parking garage, the hotel portion of the proposal, and the status of a concept floated nearly two years ago to build a retail corridor through COSI.

  9. First look at 64 Watson, new luxury condos in Brush Park A unique development in Brush Park is nearly complete. The Devon Building on Watson Street, built in 1905, was torn down and a new one rebuilt in its place that faithfully recreated the original’s facade. Now, construction has wrapped up on 64 Watson, which contains six luxury condos, and the first tenants are set to move in soon. The three-story building has an attractive brick and stone cream exterior with an arched front entrance.

  10. Here's when Newport’s $15 million SkyWheel will break ground The developers of a 235-foot-tall SkyWheel have set a groundbreaking this fall for the riverfront attraction in Newport. The SkyWheel, which will be located just north of Newport on the Levee along the Ohio River, is scheduled to break ground in September. Final terms between the city of Newport and SkyWheel Attractions, along with the Newport Aquarium and Newport on the Levee ownership, will bring the privately funded SkyWheel to Newport. The total investment to build the SkyWheel is expected to be about $15 million. Matthew Stack, president of SkyWheel Attractions, said it has been a long process to get to this point, but he has always had an eye toward this moment. “We’ve continued to work toward all approvals and logistics and agreements with multiple partners necessary to start construction,” Stack told me. “That has been a very difficult and long process. But once we start construction, that should be the quickest part of the whole process.” More below: https://www.bizjournals.com/cincinnati/news/2019/08/16/newport-s-15-million-skywheel-to-break-ground-this.html
  11. Over-the-Rhine marshmallow shop to close An Over-the-Rhine sweets shop is closing its doors as it switches up its business model, planning a relaunch that will bring on a new line of products featuring CBD.

  12. Cincinnati’s Oktoberfest celebration expands Oktoberfest Zinzinnati is getting even bigger this year. The annual German heritage celebration will become an official citywide half-day holiday following a proclamation from Mayor John Cranley. “Oktoberfest Zinzinnati is one of our most important traditions,” Cranley said in a statement. “And it’s time we recognize it as the holiday it is!” As a result, the event, which is produced by the Cincinnati USA Regional Chamber, will extend its hours to begin at 11 a.m. on Friday, Sept. 20. The festival previously began at 5 p.m. on Friday. More below: https://www.bizjournals.com/cincinnati/news/2019/08/16/cincinnati-s-oktoberfest-celebration-expands.html
  13. Cedar Point was never the "big brother" of Kings Island. They've been flagship parks (until Cedar Fair's purchase) for decades. Not necessarily competitors but certainly their own lanes, respectively. Kings Island was always about innovation (first suspended, first stand-up, first LIM, first 6-looper, blah blah) while Cedar Point chased records (tallest, fastest **insert coaster type here**). And yes, both have generally the same attendance numbers (both beaten by Canada's Wonderland). Cedar Fair buying Kings Island AND Geauga Lake was the worst day in Ohio amusement park history.
