Renderings for Moerlein Lager House released in latest CRP construction update

Cincinnati Riverfront Park Project Manager Dave Prather has released the latest construction update on the massive 45-acre public park project. In the video Prather discusses recent progress including the archaeological dig, event lawn, connectivity with The Banks development, bicycle commuter station and a realigned Mehring Way. The video also updates the status of the much anticipated Moerlein Lager House for which several new renderings are displayed.

The first phase of the Sasaki Associates-designed Cincinnati Riverfront Park will also include the Walnut Street Fountain & Steps, the Black Brigade Monument, the labyrinth, tree groves, the Women’s Garden, Main Street Garden, and the first section of the bike trail that will eventually connect with the Ohio River Trail. Construction of the park is currently on-budget and on-time for a Spring 2011 completion.

    I sure would like to get ahold of that 3D model 😉

    Does the lager house patio sit to the north of main structure? I figured it would face towards the river. Then again, thats how you get baseball fans to drop in.

  • Zack:

    The outdoor biergarten sits on the south side of the Moerlein Lager House and overlooks the Ohio River, Cincinnati Riverfront Park and Roebling Suspension Bridge. In the video they mention another separate patio that will be a part of a restaurant in The Banks development that will on the north side of the Moerlein Lager House.


    You and me both!

    After further review, there actually are two biergartens. The first one shown early in the video is north-facing and located at the front of the Moerlein Lager House with Main Street running along the building on the left side of the video. The second biergarten is west-facing and shows up around the 1:56 mark of the video. In this scene you can actually see a third outdoor space that is a second-floor patio that will have the panoramic views of the river and bridge.

    Thanks for the info. I guess I was hoping that the “garten” would be a focus, rather than an option, similar to Hofbrau. It looks pretty slick. Maybe a little too slick.

    I do believe CM committing to that space will go a long way in bringing in tenants to the banks. Kind of a keystone location. My original idea was to convince Mont. Inn to move there.
