    City considers Eden Park station for micro-brewery
    03/28/12 at 6:14pm Written by lbaverman

    The city of Cincinnati is investigating whether a 118-year-old red brick pump station and water tower behind Krohn Conservatory could be sold and converted to a micro-brewery. A pair of developers recently approached the city to redevelop the 7,000-square-foot property, which was designed by renowned architect Samuel Hannaford to enhance the park landscape. It’s on the National Register of Historic Places.

    Parking mandates stymy development in Cincinnati’s urban neighborhoods
    BY: JOHN YUNG
    MARCH 27, 2012 – 9:00 AM

    Downtown Cincinnati is home to five Fortune 500 companies, three professional sports teams, local businesses, and according to the 2010 U.S. Census, about 5,300 residents. But the area is also home to more than 35,000 off-street parking spaces.

    These spaces once held historic buildings but have been demolished to provide automobile parking over the years. As downtown continues its resurgance, it would be prudent for city leaders to review its outdated parking policies.

    In just six years, developers have moved Over-the-Rhine from one of America’s poorest, most run-down neighborhoods to among its most promising.

    “It’s the best development in the country right now,” says Tom Murphy, a senior resident fellow at the Urban Land Institute in Washington, D.C., and a former mayor of Pittsburgh. “You have governments paralyzed and doom and gloom going on around the country, yet there’s this remarkable model in Cincinnati.”

    Having just spent some time in OTR in February, I agree that it has to be one of the most promising historic neighborhoods in all of Ohio, if not the country. I took a lot of photos of the buildings that look nice, here….

    Close to Columbus: Over-the-Rhine

    … but for every one fixed up, there’s nine more still run down. It’s got a *long* way to go.

    A lot of the streets still look like this:

    Development Proves Skeptics Wrong, Mayor Says
    POSTED: 4:06 pm EDT April 26, 2012

    CINCINNATI — As he greets and seats customers at Taste of Belgium, Christian Sebald is convinced that his move to 14th Street five months ago was a solid one. “I moved from Middletown and I noticed that, you know, I say I live in Over-The-Rhine, and they’re like, ‘Oh no, that’s a bad place to live,’ and I say, No, really it’s not,” said Sebard, a host at Taste of Belgium. “They’ve made a huge change in about the past year.”

    Cincinnati betting on new development code
    ‘Form-based’ approach gives communities more flexibility
    11:24 AM, May. 6, 2012
    Written by Carrie Whitaker

    Almost twice as many people lived in Cincinnati 60 years ago. But then cars made it easier to get things farther from home and families elected to move to quieter, more spacious and sometimes safer suburbs. Longtime residents passed away, and their children chose not to stay.

    Unfortunately, Columbus is behind on our zoning codes. Miami and Denver have already implemented Form-Based Code zoning.

    I’m really hoping for a renaissance in Cincinnati with the recent additions of the streetcar and form based code discussions. Maybe the results will provide a good enough example and finally show Columbus that it needs to step up its game and evolve instead of doing certain things business as usual. That is, if these plans in Cinci work, which I think they will. What’s good for Cinci is ultimately good for us.

    Maybe we should have a form based code rally out in front of city hall. :P

    Cincinnati Aims for Complete Streets
    Cincinnati | 05/07/2012
    JOHN YUNG | URBANCINCY

    Some streets in Cincinnati do not feel safe to walk along. Perhaps it is the lack of space between the cars driving by or, in some instances, even the lack of a sidewalk. It’s even more precarious for cyclists, who sometimes have the benefit of designated bicycle lanes, but most of the time compete with cars to share space on the roads.

    11:07 PM, May. 14, 2012

    The group that plans to renovate Music Hall will appeal to the city to contribute $10 million, double the amount discussed in its original bid in December to purchase the historic but outdated venue from the city.
