Cincinnati Public Radio is in a development fight with the city and a residential developer while the Public Library backed away from selling its North Building. Could there be a solution to both issues?
Recently UrbanCincy contributor Timothy Broderick sat down with Ronald Viera, founder of PassivHaus — a venture designed to shake up the region’s building industry by dramatically reducing buildings’ energy expenditures to discuss building Passive Houses in the Cincinnati region.
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.
Another development is coming to the Brewery District. The Historic Conservation Board approved a zoning variance that will bring fifty affordable housing units and a restaurant to several vacant buildings along the streetcar line.
