Awesome for Cincinnati!!

Here is a recent article concerning Pittsburgh that I thought you Cincy people would enjoy:

Who's Winning on the Economic Playing Field?
Everybody knows the Bengals beat the Steelers last Sunday. But Cincinnati also beat Pittsburgh in economic growth over the past year. The newest economic data released last week show that jobs in the Cincinnati region are growing nearly 50% faster than in Pittsburgh.

Employers in the Pittsburgh Region created 10,000 net new jobs between August 2005 and August 2006, an increase of 0.89%. That’s better than the previous year, when we only saw 7,800 new jobs, a 0.69% increase. However, even though Cincinnati is a smaller region, its employers created nearly 14,000 jobs last year, a 1.32% increase.

It wasn’t just Cincinnati that beat us. 31 of the top 40 regions did. For example, jobs in the Minneapolis region, a region similar to ours in many ways, grew by 2.68% in the past year, triple the rate in Pittsburgh. Seattle grew by 3.56%, quadruple the rate here.

As weak as job growth was here, we did manage to beat Silicon Valley, Columbus, and St. Louis, not to mention Cleveland, Indianapolis, and Detroit, which actually lost jobs over the past year. (The biggest loser of all was New Orleans, which lost 28% of its jobs in the past year, due to Hurricane Katrina.)

I went by Inwood village recently, that is about the creepiest street in the city. It looks like a neutron bomb went off. Would make a great artists community or some cool condos though.

Also City council gave preliminary approval to 31 condos at the corner of mcmillan and highland on 1/2 acre. 52 parking spaces and 2000sqft of retail.

New skyscraper here?
Plan for city's tallest tower revived; W&S testing market for office building to top Carew
BY JON NEWBERRY | JNEWBERRY@ENQUIRER.COM


Western & Southern Financial Group Inc. is turning up the heat on its long-simmering plan for a major downtown office tower and could begin construction next year if pre-leasing is fruitful.

The proposed skyscraper, dubbed Queen City Square ever since plans were initially floated almost 20 years ago and then revived in 2002, would be the tallest in the region - taller than the 574-foot-tall Carew Tower.

Initially, it was to have 37 floors, but now could be taller, said John Barrett, chairman and chief executive of the insurance and investment services company.

It would provide 720,000 square feet of offices and up to 2,000 parking spaces.

"We're out there aggressively trying to pre-lease that tower," he said, noting that Western & Southern developed the 580 Walnut office building in 1974, helping spark a surge in downtown development that lasted into the early 1990s. "It's time for the next wave," he said.

Barrett said Western & Southern has filled all but half of one floor in its 15-story 303 Broadway building, which opened in 2005; and it's eager to help attract new corporate headquarters downtown.

Western & Southern is also running out of room for its own growing operations, which employ about 1,800 people downtown. It announced last week that it's bringing in another 50 jobs when it relocates a subsidiary from suburban Philadelphia later this year.

Western & Southern is working with its architect to put finishing touches on the Queen City Square building, a detailed model of which is in the former Guilford School building on East Fourth Street where the company's Eagle Realty Group is located.

The company has no construction timeline; the plans still need approval from the city.

The tower would be between Third and Fourth streets on the east side of Sycamore. A parking garage with 1,500 spaces would be demolished.

The new building would be adjacent to the 303 Broadway building at the northwest corner of Third and Broadway. That building - the first office tower built downtown in 14 years - has 185,000 square feet of offices and 666 parking spaces.

Wayne Hach, president of Cincinnati Commercial Realtors, an office brokerage specialist, said the supply of vacant office space downtown has been pretty stable in recent years, and there has not been a large demand. The vacancy rate in newer buildings is about 16 percent, which is not high, he said. In 2006 more space opened up than was occupied, but in the first quarter of this year that trend reversed.

Hach said there has not been a lot of expansion among existing office tenants and little migration from the suburbs or from out of town. There's a market for upgrades, though - tenants who want better, newer space - and there are few large blocks of 50,000 square feet or more, he said.

"I would expect a new Class A building would carry a significant premium over current market rates," Hach said. "The question is: What is that premium, and how many companies would be willing to pay it?"

One building with plenty of vacant space is the 600 Vine building, which Convergys Corp. left when it moved to Fourth Street. The tower at Sixth and Vine was acquired last year by Hertz Investment Group, which has been pricing it aggressively to attract tenants. Hach said the 29-story structure, built in 1984, would be considered "Class A-."

"What Western-Southern proposes to build would be significantly more prestigious and newer and better," he said.

Exactly how sure are we on this one? I have researched this many other places, and nothing has came up. Cincinnati surely needs a new tall, The Carew is amazing, but Cincy could add another great building to its already amazing skyline.

Cincinnati has one of the best skylines in the midwest due to its cohesiveness. It may not have the tallest buildings but everything fits. I welcome larger buildings like Queen City but I don't think they're necessary at all.
