  1. I've always been a fan of the StrongTowns podcast. Also the War on Cars has been a good one as well.
  2. Recall that the appeals court ruling was that since the City built the streetcar for economic development purposes and not with regards to health, safety and welfare, the city had to pay. Looking at it again, it's appalling how ridiculous this ruling was. https://www.bizjournals.com/cincinnati/news/2016/05/04/ohio-supreme-court-makes-ruling-on-duke.html "At the appellate court level, the three justices unanimously affirmed then-Hamilton County Common Pleas Judge Carl Stitch’s ruling. It said that the city’s construction of the streetcar “did not bear a substantial relation to the public’s health, safety, morals or general welfare” and instead was a proprietary function."
  3. Its so terrible but there is so much open surface parking it will be a great candidate for retrofit in 20-40 years.
  4. I think the first four are the 3CDC affordable infill projects announced earlier this year. https://www.citybeat.com/news/blog/21066972/city-of-cincinnati-taps-overtherhine-for-30-million-in-federal-affordable-housing-funds
  5. They have to work somewhere while their office is being torn down and reconstructed...
  6. We have examples that prove that preserving historic buildings and integrating them with new infill works, right across Central Parkway from here. In an era where preserving buildings and leveraging historic assets has become the de facto development ethos, demolitions like this become more and more egregious. However look at what we have lost in the last few years: The Dennison, Hudepohl and a few others. Both of these could have been leveraged to contribute to the growing success of Cincinnati. Instead they are missed opportunities. In city development there is often a compulsion to trade the better options for the slightly better options. When we muddle our potential, we squander our success.
  7. 1118. Apologies on the incorrect address: https://www.bizjournals.com/cincinnati/news/2018/09/17/exclusive-40-million-mixed-use-project-planned-in.html
  8. It's about time! Now if 1113 Sycamore can get out of the ground, Sycamore may actually start becoming a more interesting street!
  9. I have been riding the RedBike e-bikes to work for the past few days. It definitely levels the playing field on a street like Liberty Street where the standard bikes can feel slow alongside faster moving and often times more aggressive traffic.
  10. “We can’t all and some of us don’t. That’s all there is to it.”
  11. If you look at this Friday's Planning Commission packet, the city is asking to establish an air lot above the garage ramp for the adjoining garage (Item 8 ). There could either be an overbuild on just that parcel keeping or demolishing the existing building or it could be an expansion of the neighboring lot. I'm ambivalent as to whether Convention Place should continue to exist. It has a weird 1970's-esque vibe that the city does not have a lot of. On the other hand, its ugly and forgettable.
  12. This was studied but discarded as part of the Revive 75 effort back in 2011. Would have been a game changer for downtown but the powers that be at ODOT were unmoved:
  13. It does have apartment buildings. https://www.google.com/maps/@39.8002956,-83.8985875,3a,75y,3.69h,88.79t/data=!3m7!1e1!3m5!1slqqLig_hirSk0TW75WpDng!2e0!6s%2F%2Fgeo2.ggpht.com%2Fcbk%3Fpanoid%3DlqqLig_hirSk0TW75WpDng%26output%3Dthumbnail%26cb_client%3Dmaps_sv.tactile.gps%26thumb%3D2%26w%3D203%26h%3D100%26yaw%3D328.61435%26pitch%3D0%26thumbfov%3D100!7i13312!8i6656
