  1. From the WCPO article- "They bought the building for $7.5 million earlier this year, and 3CDC expects to purchase the land from the city of Cincinnati for $1. The bargain price allows the city to avoid paying property taxes on the land, as 3CDC moves forward with redevelopment of the 225,000-square-foot building." This sounds like BS? Does a city pay property tax on a land sale? Or do they mean 3CDC will have a lower property tax liability going forward since the land sale will be recorded as $1?? All this welfare..... I pay full freight on my property. Why can't they?

    Toxic Masculinity

    I drive a truck because it’s the most comfortable and roomiest 4-dr vehicle I’ve ever owned. I’ve never seen it as a status symbol, but simply a choice that fits my needs.
  4. All of this! Just look at how terrible P&G is integrated into downtown Cincinnati. There are no public interactions. The colonnade and lawn out front create a giant moat around the towers, and were once the site of an entire city block of historic structures. All gone. For. A. Lawn. A lawn DOWNTOWN for Pete’s sake. It all should have been put on the river somewhere in Cincy as well.
  5. Maybe Merrill just recognizes something the local and likewise “rust belt” developers can’t see. I’ve always felt that as markets like Cleveland are ignored, the demand would build up to a point to where outsiders would start to seize opportunities. Good for them, and good for RHts!!
  6. Wow- I just looked at google maps of the area. Entire blocks are vacant
  7. Nice photos! But truthfully, for me, I see nothing visually appealing outside of that “”Plaza” sign. Except for some of the old downtown area, LA is a total yawner to me.
  8. Can't speak for those properties that have an abatement in place, but those of us paying full freight on our property tax bills know one reason why rents are high in HamCo.
  9. I’ve really never been astounded by any comment ever here on UO....til now. Am I reading this correctly?
  10. Those shoes are as ugly, but not nearly as much as the awful carpeting.....
  11. So wait- now conservatives are pro-welfare????
  12. My gut says that the region is simply not growing fast enough to maintain the early bursts of construction activity we saw in OTR. So yes, it's simply going to normalize to the rather meager population gains we are seeing in the metro.
  13. Maybe this attitude puts pressure on these projects to hit up the next neighborhood that needs and/or wants this type of development?
  14. Or working towards getting a bridge to connect the west side to the booming employment around the airport....
  15. What, because the west side is the only place that has an Olive Garden? It's sad the booming Cincinnati restaurant scene has all but ignored the west side. It's nice to see Nation Kitchen taking on a new location in the Westwood Town Hall district soon. Westsiders are indeed partaking in the wealth of restaurants available today, they just have to drive to them. I think the first few places that realize this and locate there will establish a presence and do very well.
