Does anyone know when Brewdog is supposed to open?


A few months ago, there was an article saying it was planned to open summer 2019.

lol. I never knew Lockport was a street in Cincinnati. Thanks for the info!

Same. Might win the prize for shortest street in Cincinnati. Can’t be much more than 40’!

I looked in the window yesterday and zero work had been performed.  


They have done some interior demolition. Hauled off a whole dumpster full last week. But yes, nothing going on yet in the way of new construction.

It's a big empty space that already has some bathrooms and back-of-house stuff in place, there's probably not much construction left to do besides moving in the equipment.

For anyone who lives in Pendleton, here is a link to a survey concerning the Liberty Street Road Diet.   I personally answered every question with, "six lane option is worth less that nothing, no one wants that, you're better off doing nothing"

The Brewdog project saw a little work. Front glazing and brick sill was removed, but the interior is still surprisingly devoid of completed work. Their goal of opening before the end of this summer probably won't happen. Looks like it could be a really interesting space though with tons of daylight and a nice mezzanine. We'll see...

Are there any updates on the Sycamore lot  redevelopment?


Not that I know of. The giant parking lot hasn't had any construction activity at all.

There's a lot of underground work being done on Sycamore right next to the lot this week. Unsure if it's related to a project or not.

How long is it typically between the developer filing permits and seeing shovels breaking ground?

Sorry for the low quality but I snapped this photo this morning of Brew Dog. Looks like there's going to be a roof top bar, I think

 

Looks like it. There is a similar enclosure going up on the south side of the building as well. Although not as good as street-level engagement, it will be nice to see that outdoor activity happening once completed and opened.

We could definitely see that corner of Pendelton become a little more active in the next year. 

 

With the large Sycamore St infill Project, BrewDog, and Hard Rock (I'm hoping they bring back outdoor concerts again by the casino) I'm hopeful.

I think it will be great to have extra life there along Sycamore Street and Reading. But I live/work in Pendleton and to be honest, I love the "urban residential" feel of most of Pendleton. The 1100 and 1300 blocks of Broadway, and the 500 block of 13th are my favorite parts. My hope is that more projects like the mixed-use luxury apartments happen, but they're pushed along the Sycamore and Reading corridors.

I think these developments would make a nice edge to the more quiet, residential feel to the inner parts of the Pendleton district. It would be a great concept to have a kind of "wall" of contemporary, large-scale buildings that you have to pass through to enter into a kind of oasis of historic, smaller-scale, residential buildings within. As every architecture/design professor has said at least once before, it would be a "geode."

The lot on Sycamore and 12th appears to be closed permanently. They have blocked the entrances and put up a sign that says "No parking - you will be towed." Also, they've removed the pay station. Looks like the only left to do is remove the billboard and start building.

It's so weird that they replaced the pay station like three weeks ago with a new one only to rip it out for real this time.

I can't wait to see the tears shed again  from cbd workers when they see the parking lot torn up and fenced off. I can already hear the echoing complaints about how, "Cincinnati has no parking, how can they do such travesty!"

 

Seriously though I'm beyond excited for this project. These sycamore lots have been eyesores for far to long and this will be a great first step towards repairing the urban tissue between Otr and Pendelton.

Love all the progress happening downtown and OTR/Pendelton!

 

Hopefully all the projects currently in the pipeline keep moving forward, we can get some big job announcements in the next year or so, and obviously the smaller one off porjects in OTR keep moving forward.

 

It feels like a recession is coming soon, and there is a bit of a housing bubble on prices going on, but hopefully it isn't very disruptive.

City council just approved a 30 year tax abatement for this project at their last council meeting... So maybe that was the final hurddle the developer needed to go through in order to finally break ground?

According to CAGIS, they still need their building dept plan review approval and historic conservation approval. Both of those could prove to be challenging. 

 

Why would this potentially prove challenging?

The design of the building was controversial, it just barely got approval from the Pendleton Community Council, and just barely passed the Historic Board on first review.   It would not pass the new Infill guidelines that are being proposed for OTR/Pendleton, although I don't believe those guidelines are official yet.   Main complaints are 1), it is too tall at 7 stories, 2) the stepped terraces will look out of place in the neighborhood.

yeah, 7stories gigantic!  A bit of architectural detail (stepped terraces) people will stop and stare and point and weep. Solution keep it a parking lot, because parking lots are not too tall and really make you feel like you are in a historic area.

Guys we are losing yet another historic parking lot to rabid gentrification. Sound the alarm!

While it's not the BEST designed building, I don't think there are too many people that are that strongly against the project going in. I was at the Pendleton Council meeting (voted in favor) and the main complaints discussed were cost of living going up and increasing the parking demand while simultaneously removing the parking lot. Albeit there were legitimate concerns brought up about density, height, lack of detail, etc... But I think the height argument is weak, because the Hannaford building a half-block away is 7 stories (with 2 story penthouse tower).Danny Klingler was also there speaking profusely against the project (saying how the developers weren't respecting the process of presenting to community).

To me, what looks out of place is this giant parking crater in the middle of our urban core (and the giant parking garage directly across the street from this lot). Build these apartments and make room for humans instead of vehicles!
