    Downtown Cincinnati Thrives as Riots’ Memories Recede
    FEB. 24, 2015
    By KEITH SCHNEIDER

    CINCINNATI — A rapidly growing sector for consumer research, coupled with a boom in construction and redevelopment, is renewing interest in Cincinnati’s downtown. One measure of the city’s new relevance is the $85 million Global Operations Center for General Electric, with construction to be finished next year, in the Banks, an 18-acre Ohio riverfront development between the city’s baseball and football stadiums. The 12-story office building and the district will be served by a station stop on the 3.6-mile, $148 million Cincinnati streetcar line that is also expected to open next year.

    I just took a trip down there not long ago and saw this project. Took some digging but I did find that is was what I suspected. Taking an old parking garage and building on top of it. Columbus has a lot of space to fill in before the demand for this type of project would be there but an interesting prospect any of the many garages downtown.

    Rowhouse Rebirth

    I filmed this story in Cincinnati’s Over-the-Rhine neighborhood. As always, my far more talented friend Kirsten Dirksen did the editing. There are also glimpses of other nearby neighborhoods such as East Walnut Hills and some views for the city taken from across the Ohio River in Kentucky. Michael Uhlenhake is an architect and long time resident of the city. The story of his own practice and home renovation follows the trajectory of the city as a whole.

    I visited Downtown Cincinnati this past weekend, and was pleasantly surprised with the improvements they have made to the skyline, and the restaurants and retail over the past ten years. The Banks area near the stadiums was beautiful. The abundance of food and drinking options fit in perfectly with the carousel and parks area surrounding the river. I also noticed a new condo/ apartment project that was recently completed. The fist five to six floors was a parking garage which blended in with the buildings beautiful design. Columbus needs to take some pointers from Cincinnati. Their downtown felt bigger and more “big city” than Columbus’ downtown.

    Columbus needs to take some pointers from Cincinnati. Their downtown felt bigger and more “big city” than Columbus’ downtown.

    I think the biggest lesson to learn is “don’t tear down a whole bunch of buildings in your Downtown”. Unless we’ve got a time machine to go back to the 1950s-1970s and stop them, then there’s not a lot that can be done in Columbus except build anew. ;)

    I do enjoy Cincinnati quite a bit. Both their Downtown and Over-the-Rhine areas are impressive and fun. I’d love to see high-speed passenger rail linking our two cities, and I’d probably make trips down there more often.

    Downtown Cincinnati would have to be my favorite of all the C’s in Ohio. Very walkable and charming.

    JESSIE: OVER-THE-RHINE, CINCINNATI
    by John Sanphillippo 10/17/2015

    This is Jessie. She’s a well educated thirty year old professional with a good income. She could live anywhere she wants. She was offered excellent positions with good companies in San Francisco. While she was excited by the opportunity to live in a top tier coastal city she was smart enough to actually run the numbers before taking a job. Her income would be comparable to what she was already making in Cincinnati, but her cost of living (particularly the astronomical cost of housing) in San Francisco meant that she would actually be accepting a massively lower standard of living in California compared to Ohio.

    Dumb that they’re tearing down a historic building. MORONS.

    9 stories isn’t tall enough. THINK BIGGER.

    Where’s the affordable housing? GENTRIFICATION.

    The architecture doesn’t fit the historic neighborhood. SORE THUMB.

    This is stupid and so is the entire city of Cincinnati and EVERYONE IN IT.

    It’s nice to see Dublin’s own Chinedum Ndukwe be the team lead for this development.

    I only agree with the last statement.

    ^^ Well, if he’s making light of those who would criticize this project for any of those 5 reasons, in this particular case, I don’t really think any of them apply as valid complaints by the serial complainers. They are, however, valid concerns in too many other cases.

    Valid concerns only with additional context and thoughtfulness.

    Whiny one-liners are not the same as valid concerns. ;)
