CINCINATTI | Projects Update

Most of these are underconstruction (except for some obvious few; QCS II, Corporex Tower, and some others). This is obviously just a taste of what the city is doing. I can't possibly find all of the projects and some projects I'm leaving out (re: Montgomery Inn redevelopment; new condo towers for Eden Park, Uptown Crossings-Zoo corridor, etc) because I don't have fancy renderings for them. But for the ones I do...
