check the city's website City of Cincinnati

There was actually a study done recently that said you could make the subway tracks operable for $115 million, but the problem is they really don't run anywhere people want to go (basically along central parkway up to about the hopple street exit on 75) the probelm is the tracks are hemmed in by I-75 and a steep hillside, serverly limiting your walk up traffic

I am really looking forward to going to University of Cincinnati (if i get accepted.) Im working real hard to get my gpa up since ive had trouble with my grades in high school. Im a junior and I currently have a 2.7 gpa but my grades are really good right now. Im also hoping to spend an early proffesional career working as a city planner/ surveyer for Cincinnati. Ive recently fell in love with Cincinnati not only because of the developments along the river front, but the fact that its starting to grow. It has beautiful hills surrounding the entire city and great transportation around the metro area and to the rest of the region. The other city i wanted to work for was Detroit, my 2nd favorite city. Detroit not only has a great downtown aswell as Cincinnati, but great history and that is one of my favorite studies in high school. But Detroit is missing something, Detroit doesnt have what im looking for to live there, the quality of life in Detroit is just about dead, while in Cincinnati, it is alive. Im going to spend a lot of time this next year visiting and studying the greater Cincinnati area individually. Ive been looking at some apartments around Mount Airy and they are affordable and in a great location just right off of I-74 which can get me back to my home in Southern Indiana for the holidays and other family events. Im only 16 and i can't wait to go to college and start my proffesional career in Cincinnati.

If you're going to work in urban planning, UC is definitely a great choice, that's for sure.

looks pretty good, although there is some visible honeycombing of the concrete on the first floor

God every city should be jealous of OTR!

I heard a crane has been moved on site of Queen City Square. When is the steel expected to rise?

spring 2009, top out by 2010, occupancy 2011

in 2011 the city could have a complete phase 1 of the banks, the new tallest skyscraper and a streetcar.
