The Over-the-Rhine Foundation is hosting a design competition to test a proposed set of new infill guidelines for the Over-the-Rhine community. The OTR Design Competition Awards Ceremony and Celebration will take place on Friday, March 23rd from 5-8 PM. The event will announce the winner of the months-long competition designed to evaluate proposed guidelines for new development in the revitalizing neighborhood.
Development in the city of Cincinnati and particularly in the basin can sometimes be heavily scrutinized. However a new effort and design competition hosted by the Over-the-Rhine Foundation may prove to steer development of new construction projects.
A developer has submitted plans to the City’s Historic Conservation Board to build a six-story mixed-use infill project along Washington Park in Over-the-Rhine. The proposal has drawn criticism and support from neighbors and community groups.
With well over $2 billion in new construction projects underway in Cincinnati's urban core it is not hard to miss with construction fencing, cranes and lifts working at full tilt all over downtown and Over the Rhine. Many new construction and building renovations are underway throughout downtown and Over-the-Rhine. This gallery features photos of 16 projects taken this month.
In 2006, Over-the-Rhine was listed as one of America's Most Endangered Places by the National Trust for Historic Preservation. Today that very same neighborhood is celebrated as a tale of monumental historic revitalization and revival. That effort was honored yesterday at an awards ceremony in Washington D.C.
