Here is a great 2012 development plan for the Over-the-Rhine neighborhood being done by 3CDC. In summary, about 250 residential units and over 30,000 square feet of commercial space will be added in less than two years by 3CDC alone.

Yes it is. They are making monumental improvements to the neighborhood.

I don't know whether it was planned or not, but most of those buildings being restored in Phase 5 will be on the streetcar line.

DunnhumbyUSA has picked the 5th and Race street location for it's new headquarters!


Cultural fit for dunnhumbyUSA

Quote:
First culture, and then cost, prompted Monday’s decision by dunnhumbyUSA to construct a new headquarters on the northwest corner of Fifth and Race streets, a city-owned lot that’s been long eyed for redevelopment.

Known for its client list of sought-after brands and retailers, and a young, highly paid workforce, the consumer research and insights company put more weight on the revitalization happening in downtown’s central business district than the multi-millions of dollars in financial incentives offered by county and city leaders.
http://news.cincinnati.com/article/2...Z01/302060034/


3CDC is developing the site. That, plus the fact that DunnhumbyUSA is known for innovative work spaces, hopefully means that we will get a very unique building on the site. The site will likely include underground parking and retail space. Old 3CDC plans for the site called for two residential towers, so hopefully that will find its way into the plan as well.

Yeah, I'm a little worried about that part of the article.... I am holding out hope though. Apparently 3CDC has done several site studies, and each has invisioned two separate towers on the site. Maybe if the headquarters is built using the large floor plates, a residential tower could be built on top. I guess we'll just have to wait for more details.

Cincinnati may soon be powered by 100% renewable energy

Quote:
Cincinnati is working on a new power aggregation deal right now that could lead to the entire city being powered from 100 percent renewable energy sources. The deal, city officials say, could be finalized within the coming months and be in place for consumers by summer 2012.

Such a move would make Cincinnati the largest city in the United States to have its energy supply come from 100 percent renewable sources, and it might be accomplished without any significant cost difference for ratepayers.

Site prep is finished for the Mercer Commons development in Over-the-Rhine. Construction should start soon.

Here is a better rendering of the Vine Street building:

Kao to move HQ downtown

Quote:
Kao USA plans to move its headquarters staff from Spring Grove Avenue to downtown and create about 50 new jobs.
.....
The exact downtown location where the administrative jobs will be moving wasn’t revealed because the company hasn’t signed a lease yet. But real estate sources said Kao has been looking for 40,000 to 60,000 square feet of downtown office space.

Kao makes jergens, etc.

Is there some sort of clustering effect of companies that manufacture or sell consumable domestic goods in Cincinnati? I know Kroger Corp, which owns like every traditional grocery chain in the country, is headquartered downtown.

Yeah, Cincinnati has quite a few of those types of companies. Cincinnati was designated as the "Hub of Innovation and Opportunity in the area of Consumer Marketing" for the state of Ohio. We have Proctor and Gamble, Kroger, Macy's, Kao, Totes, LPK, and many others.

Looks like Covington Kentucky is planning a riverfront development project of its own.

Covington receives 3 proposals for riverfront development project

Quote:
Two proposals were in response to a request for proposals the city issued in late November for a project area at the north end of Madison Avenue. One of the two respondants submitted a third proposal for a project in the area of the earthen levee west of Madison Place off Rivercenter Boulevard.

"The city is truly excited to see the interest shown in doing riverfront projects in the community along the Ohio River," said Covington Mayor Chuck Scheper. "These opportunities certainly raise the bar for our Covington riverfront vision as we seek to highlight and underscore development opportunities in the city that will lead to significant growth."

The projects include a proposed 28-story mixed use tower, marinas, wharfs, hotels, and landscaping improvements.

I'm so glad it's finally happening!

Streetcar project breaks ground

Quote:
OVER-THE-RHINE - — After years in the making, the city of Cincinnati broke ground today on the the $110 million street car project.

The event was held at Memorial Hall this afternoon.

The nation’s transportation secretary, Ray LaHood, attended along Mayor Mark Mallory and City Manager Milton Dohoney.

Upon completion, the streetcar will snake 3.6 miles from Riverfront into Over-the-Rhine, connecting the Banks to Findlay Market.

The first phase of construction will include the relocation of water lines in city streets.

PS: In typical Enquirer fashion, the map in the article is incorrect. The streetcar will extend down to 2nd street.
