Cincinnati has a great downtown, that has experienced billions in new development dollars, and is watching not only their riverfront change and expand, but one of the nation's most iconic skylines get new skyscrappers, including Cincinnati's tallest.

OTR is a neighborhood that is changing everyday. People can say what they like, but the area is a success story across the nation, which is inspiring other cities like St. Louis and many others to transform some of their very unique neighborhoods. New condos, restaurants, shops, and clubs are moving in.

Fountain Square is a huge success story. When I visited, I couldn't get over how great it looked. Very modern, and it fit perfectly with downtown.

The Banks Project is underway, it will be transforming Cincinnati's central riverfront between Paul Brown Stadium and Great American Ballpark. It is a huge mixed use development. It is such a big project, it will be done in phases. It will be completely finished in 2015. Phase one, under construction now, is expected to be completed in late 2009 or early 2010.

Cincinnati's new tallest is going to be underway in the fall. The parking garage where it will be standing is currently being demolished to make way for the construction. It will be the home to Cincinnati based Great American Insurance. With the other half being rented out to other businesses.

In the years to come Cincinnati will look dramatically different. And you do not just have to limit this discussion to downtown. I know a lot of development is going on in Mount Adams and the University of Cincinnati. Don't forget about Dayton, and the suburbs in between Dayton and Cincinnati. Some of the fastest growing regions in the country lie between these two cities. Dayton has a lot going on downtown for a city of its size, and an even better skyline.

So feel free to discuss development going on in SW Ohio. List articles about it, your thoughts, or even pictures that you might have. But please remember, follow forum rules.

This is also going to help people looking to move to the area what is going on, and what to expect in the future.

UrbanCincy - connecting the tri-state with its urban core (http://www.urbancincy.com/2008/08/historic-enquirer-building-to-see-new.html - broken link)


Thanks to some historic tax credits and private financing the $37,399,000 project is now ready to move forward, with a projected completion date of Mid-2009 (office) and May 2010 (apartments).

Retail space will remain at street-level, 53,400 sf of office space will take up floors 2-3, and 152 apartments will take up floors 4-14. 170 parking spaces will also be made available by retrofitting the basement mezzanine levels (previously held 10-ton printing presses) into a 3-level private parking garage.


there will be a mix of studio, 1br, 1br/1 den, and 2br apartment units. These units will boast features such as free/dedicated wi-fi access, stainless steel appliances, washer/dryer hookups, hardwood/polished concrete floors, lofted kitchen and bathroom areas, and private parking.

New hotel @ 8th & Sycamore ...


Developer Rolling Hills Properties will replace the former Red Cross location with a 13-story hotel with 200 guest rooms, an indoor pool and spa, exercise room, meeting space, lobby cafe, and penthouse-level restaurant, atop a 150-car parking structure. (this has gained preliminary approval from the Cincinnati Planning Commission)
While not in a historic district the developer pledged to design the building with the architectural elements of neighboring historic structures in mind. Those include manufacturing facilities-turned-apartment properties the Power Building and Sycamore Place at Xavier Park and St. Xavier Church. He already has named PDT Design pro-ject architect and D.A.G. Construction construction manager to work with the city and neighboring property owners on a design that matches the flavor of the district.
Developer's contract for the property is pending upon a zone change approval by City Council to Planned Development.
Gains in convention traffic (occupancy rates at highest in over a decade), great visibility/access to I-71 were key selling points.
Because most of the larger-name hoteliers are already located downtown, one local hotel developer, unnamed for competitive reasons, expected Patel to attract an upper-scale Sheraton or Holiday Inn, properties geared toward business or leisure users rather than convention visitors. “They may think the luxury market is not being served,” he said.

New condos on the market ...

312 McFarland (W. 4th)

Conrad Oppt and Jack Glazer are moving forward with the seven unit McFarland Lofts, a ... loft renovation in the 137 year old former wagon warehouse of Cincinnati Gaslight & Coke (just behind and to the East of AVS Art). According to Oppt, the model at McFarland should be ready in 6 or 7 weeks, and they will custom finish-to-order the units (most of which will range from $195K to $250K) as they are sold.

Large Renderings for The Banks ... (I'm not too crazy about the design, but I'll hold off harsh judgement until tenants start moving in and changing the streetscape to their desire).

Arguably, the most important project in the region. "Cincinnati Riverfront Park"

$80 mil - ~40 acres

^^ So is there going to be an underground grage for the sporting events parking?

Also, I kinda agree with The Banks renderings. For some reason it reminds me of Denver and looks kinda out of place but that could just be me. Either way, I hope it works out.
