Cincinnati: Downtown: 311 W. 4th Street (Single-Family Residential)

Recommended Posts

Normally I wouldn't start a thread about a project of this size, but it's a very interesting project.  Plan is to build a spec house on W. 4th street.  3000 SF, garage, designed to fit in dimensionally with the other buildings, and a $1 million price tag.  I am honestly not sure what to think of this.  It certainly doesn't scream density, but on the other hand, I feel like the various one-off homes/brownstones/etc. around the CBD give it a lot of variety and character.  (Thinking here of spots like those on 9th Street, etc.) 

 

Thoughts?

Though I think the building looks...pretty meh, I love the idea of infill being built to fill in the many tiny gaps Downtown and in OTR. Big developers obviously aren't looking at this type of lot so it's nice to see it'll be filled.

 

Now if they'd just get rid of that curb cut and front facing garage...

I agree that it's interesting.  I like that it's a 3 story building.  I kind of wish it was a 4 or 5 story with one condo per floor and a retail space on the bottom.  On the other hand, would I like to see some of our surface lots replaced with several 3 story homes like this?  Yeah, I think so.
