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...

Queen City Square: Phase I - Downtown

*Damn near topped-off.
*15 stories

Queen City Square: Phase II - Downtown

*Scheduled to begin in spring 2006
*Queen City Square II, located in the heart of the downtown financial district at Fourth & Sycamore Streets. 37 story, 800,000 square foot , Class A+ office development situated on 2.5 acres with 2,200 car parking garage.
*Height? Who knows. Between 640-700ft is for sure.

Hundreds and hundreds of old, decrepit housing. Basically, the neighborhood is coming back. I'm not going to post each and every rehab that large-ass neighborhood is getting.

That's all you get from me.

God damn! Very exciting to see all the great buildings and renovations going on in Porkopolis. Bravo Colday!!!!
I especially like the Queen City Square; the UC Medical Sciences Center and the The Elite all for aesthetic reasons. On a more practical level, its great to see all the loft/condo restoration projects as well as new loft/condo buildings.
The new Pittsburgh development thread is up.

Great work. Although most of these projects are small, it is good to see 'Natti making progress. I can't wait for QCS, Phase II, that building looks awesome.
Worcester, not as bad as everyone thinks.

Coldayman, nice pics and a nice smorgasboard of projects. Where did you find the pics of the Morgens and Scioto residence halls at UC? I have never seen any renderings showing what they would look like. FYI, I know they are tearing down at least one of the three sisters, don't know which one though.

I sure do like this one. I can envision this in my fair city, positioned next to Gateway:

This one, however, gives me a migraine:

Hey Cincinnati forumers -- this is a link to our local "read as you ride" transit newspaper, the Metro. It had an article in it this morning about curvy condos and the above Libeskind "Ascent" was featured, so I thought you guys would be interested. Warning -- its in PDF -- if you guys think its important enough, someone might have to finagle it onto your thread.

Hope all is well in Bengaland.


EDIT: The article is on page 16; Queen City Square II is hella cool.
One minute I held the key
Next the walls were closed on me
And I discovered that my castles stand
