Episode #34: Urban Housing

On the 34th episode of The UrbanCincy Podcast, Randy, John, and Travis discuss several housing developments in the urban core, including The Banks Phase 2, which broke ground earlier this week. We ask why many Cincinnati developers are reluctant to invest in urban projects, even as demand has sharply risen. While there is demand for as many as 5,000 new apartments and condos in the urban core, only about 1,500 units are planned for the next few years. Finally, we speculate on whether rents will fall as more new apartments become available.
