How is Queen City Square coming along? How much of the garage do they have knocked down. I wish I could just fly to the city to see all this.

Great updates too!

The garage is now about 3/4 down while all streets remain open. Not bad. It's turning into a giant hole.

And out of that will be the steel beams rising for QCS2. Can't wait for it.

Did anybody see the original actual drawings of the banks. They looked perfect, with older "cincinnati" style architecture mixed with new modern touches. There were very rough sketches but looked so much better than the "suburbia shopping complex" it looks like they're trying to build. I agree we want people from the suburbs to come downtown, but building more suburbs in the heart of a city isn't a great way to do it.

I agree with you 100%. I am just hoping that they come out look different. That happens a lot with renderings.

Why do I get the feeling if I were to post updates about the new development taking place in the suburbs - particularly West Chester, Liberty Township, and Mason - people would sneer at those updates?

I'm already detecting an "anti-suburb" sentiment in this thread, and I thought it was supposed to be open to development in the ENTIRE metro region, not just the urban core? Was I mistaken?

Was I mistaken, Traveler87? Is that not a point of concern I brought up when you proposed starting this thread? The following was your response to me, which prompted me to embrace the idea: http://www.city-data.com/forum/4823219-post6.html

Well, like I said, anything between Cincinnati and Dayton including the suburbs. Please, post away on development news. I know about the new Ikea in West Chester just recently opened up.

Also, the comments above about the Banks is true, I dont want suburban style buildings on Cincinnati's central riverfront.

There are just a lot of urban "lovers" in this forum. And Cincinnati is a true gem of urban character.

I know exactly what you're saying, but I know that the facade will change as tenants fill the spaces to suit their need(s). That's why I'm trying to hold back, as hard as it is.

Any and all of them that are in the works. But that wasn't my point. When I read things like...

...I detect an underlying attitude that there is something inferior about the architecture, or projects, proposed for construction (or already built) in the suburbs compared to what happens in the urban core. Perhaps I'm being oversensitive and missing something...?
