    UC area project to start at last

    CLIFTON HEIGHTS — Ten years after city planners pegged four acres between Calhoun and McMillan streets in Clifton Heights for a multimillion dollar redevelopment, construction on U Square at the Loop is set to kick off in January.

    The $78 million complex, to include offices for the University of Cincinnati, 161 market-rate apartments atop retail stores and restaurants, parking garages, a hotel and a park, will be the largest local project besides The Banks to break ground since the recession. It’s scheduled to open by school’s start in 2013.

    I have a few things to say:

    1) I was in New Orleans a month ago, and this one guy told me something that kind of shocked me. When I was Standing on Dauphnie Street, I looked over at the high-rise buildings of New Orleans and he said, “Over there we call that American Town, and here in French Quarters we call it well you know, French Town.” I was shocked when I walked across Canal Street (which cuts between “American Town” and “French Town”) how empty it was. It was just a punch of small street with high-rises, and none walking around. Yes I know New Orleans is known for the French Quarters, which was bustling 24/7.

    2) I think at the corner of 3rd and Gay is perfect for a high-rises development. First floor high scale Club/Restaurant/Bar and 2-25 hotel, which would be close to the Convention Center.

    3) It’s been said a thousand times: Street Car

    4) I was walking around the River South today and I noticed there’s a lot of places to live, but not many restaurant (Other Than Milestone 229). IN-FILL the RiverSouth.

    Anyway, between the streetcar, The Banks, Over the Rhine, and this new project I really feel like a trip to Cincinnati is in order!

    It sounds like what he was referring to on the other side of Canal Street is the Central Business District, which just like every CBD in America, is largely only vibrant during the 9-to-5 workweek.

    According to Wikipedia, the CBD in New Orleans is home to only 2000 people:

    Meanwhile, the French Quarter is a neighborhood half the size, with double the residential population, and is essentially the region’s most prominent entertainment district.

    Kasich, how about we focus on creating small business jobs that actually give back to our communities instead of hoping big businesses will land in Ohio? I suppose that isn’t as glamorous for the photographers and re-election bids.

    I don’t know the details of this relocation & expansion beyond what’s presented in the story, but it sounds like a good deal to me. Cincinnati not only retains a growing company, but they’re being relocated into Downtown. What’s not to like?

    I bet I could get Kasich to show up because of the intern that I just took on for 4 hours a week. Any time someone gets hired he shows up, taking credit.

    ENQUIRER EXCLUSIVE: Music Hall: What is and what could be
    11:28 PM, Mar. 12, 2012

    A proposed sale agreement for Music Hall that was to be reviewed Friday by the Cincinnati Planning Commission will be delayed until an unspecified later date, city officials said Monday.

    Jack Rouse, head of the Music Hall Revitalization Co. Inc., the group seeking to buy the 134-year-old Over-the-Rhine facility, said it requested the delay after pushing back the construction start date on a $165 million renovation by one year to spring 2014. The Enquirer first reported the construction delay last Friday.

    “We got a little more time to work with when we moved the construction,” Rouse said. “More time is always better.”
