Dunnhumby documents reveal possible downtown Kroger
Quote:
DOWNTOWN — The city of Cincinnati has opened its books on a pending deal that’s likely to bring 1,000 dunnhumbyUSA workers, 40,000 square feet of retail and restaurant space and up to 1,000 parking spaces to the long-anticipated Fifth and Race development.

It could also bring the central business district its first Kroger grocery store and up to 130 residential units.

City documents provided to the Enquirer reveal a plan for a mid-rise building for the consumer insights firm at Fifth and Race, and at Sixth and Race, residential units atop an above-ground parking garage. The two buildings would sit above underground parking and be connected by street-level retail. And one document shows a potential smaller-format test grocery store for Kroger.

I believe they are still shooting for the end of 2013. I'll check around for an updated date and post it here.

Which is pretty impressive, considering all of the whack job opposition to the streetcar in Cincy. The article says the actual rails should start being installed late this year!

Yes, too briefly however. And it was back in the early 90's. I'm anxious to see how much it's changed. I say Spring 2014 because the streetcar and most of the other major projects will be done by then.

It will definitely look a lot different! Hopefully more major developments will come out of the woodwork before then as well. Until then, I'll definitely be posting occasional construction pics!

Heh, maybe I, too, will visit when the streetcar opens! That said, great news. I have always hated the fact that there are dense, old, functionally urban cities in the Midwest that are completely devoid of non-bus mass transit. Hopefully this will be a trend that continues!

It's been a long time coming for sure. I think all of us Cincy streetcar supporters breathed a sigh of relief on monday when everything started.

Hope you all will be able to make it to Cincy to ride it when it opens!

By the way, all of the cobblestones on Elm Street in front of Music Hall will be put back in place after the tracks are installed. It should look very European!

I'm so proud of Cincy! Welcome to the Midwest rail transit club
Chicago, Cleveland, Minneapolis, and St. Louis. Now Cincy! We need to get KC, Indy, and Detroit on board.

Well said! I'm still counting down the days until Ohio gets a new Governor, and we can get back to planning the Cincinnati/Dayton/Columbus/Cleveland inter-city rail... Rail from Cincinnati to Chicago via Indy would be amazing too.


I don't think I mentioned it, but Cincinnati and Hamilton county are apparently still planning a commuter rail line from downtown out to the eastern suburbs. The plan is controversial among area rail transit supporters, because there is a better route (an abandoned freight rail line) that could be used instead of the one that is being planned.

Here is a good article on the subject:
