Great pub for OTR and the other C's in Ohio. I didn't realize the investment in the other cities. I wonder what Cleveland has in store for The Flats (or dare I go to the CD Cleveland forum to find out)?

For a neighborhood to get a 180 turnaround like OTR got is pretty impressive...3CDC knows how to execute, not just plan.

The developer-oriented Urban Land Instititute profiled 3CDC back in 2011

Cincinnati’s 3CDC: A Model for Urban Transformation


Only a few years ago, Cincinnati, Ohio’s Over-the-Rhine (OTR) neighborhood was known for having one of the highest crime rates in the city. Today, the area—believed to be the largest, most intact urban historic district in the United States—has been transformed into one of Cincinnati’s most vibrant sectors.

The reason? Cincinnati Center City Development Corporation (3CDC)—a private, nonprofit corporation that not only targeted OTR for a makeover but also refurbished Fountain Square and continues to revitalize Cincinnati’s central business district (CBD).

Every city needs one of those. I was in OTR 2 months ago for the first time in awhile. While it is still very very sketchy in many parts, it has come a LONG way in just 1 year even. Bravo to Cincy and cheers to the rise of the historic cities.
