CINCINNATI l 4th and Race l FT l 14 FLOORS

Cincinnati to demolish Pogue's Garage, build 30-story tower
Quote:
The city of Cincinnati is planning to build a 30-story mixed-use high-rise at the site of the existing Pogue's Garage in downtown.

City Manager Milton Dohoney revealed the plans for the Fourth and Race Street site during a city council Budget and Finance Committee meeting Tuesday.

The project calls for the renovation of Tower Place Mall into 500 additional parking spaces and street level retail. The city is working with JDL Warm on this portion of the development.

The city then plans to demolish the existing Pogue's Garage next door, and to replace it with 300 luxury apartments, 1,000 parking spaces, a 15,000-square-foot grocery store. The grocery store would be new to the Cincinnati market.

As a fellow Cincinnatian, I'm embarrassed.

Otherwise, I'm glad this tower is replacing Tower Place garage.

Really the architecture is nothing to get super excited over. Its a standard mid-rise residential tower (albeit a modern addition that balances the skyline a bit)...

The brilliance in this project is that it is REdevelopment of un-needed land use with a mix of needed uses.

Good filler building. I do like the top, and that base isn't bad either. Hopefully Cincinnati gets back into a building boom downtown. I remember reading an article on the forum recently saying the city was refocusing on its downtown and encouraging development there. There certainly has been some lately, so I hope it continues.

^No. That site was originally supposed to have a 30ish story residential component and a rumored grocery component, but that was nixed when DunnhumbyUSA decided to occupy the whole of the site for their ever expanding business.

This is quite possibly the result of that tower not happening. It would make sense.

As for a building boom, it really is picking up in recent years. Residential conversions are starting to happen in a lot of the older office buildings and new construction is also beginning to pick up as well as the continuation of mass renovations of older residential buildings throughout Downtown and Over the Rhine.

It feels like only a matter of time before we start seeing more buildings of this size spring up on vacant lots and that's going to be a wonderful time to be in the city. Well, it already is a wonderful time with all the progress, but it's only going to get better

I don't check the Cincinnati threads too often. But if that's the kind of stuff that goes on here, I'm in.

I'm glad Cincinnati is seeing a good amount of downtown revitalization, but so is every other city that you just bashed and called......"copycats"? Just because Cincinnati is seeing some nice towers going up doesn't mean its Midwestern peer cities will not. Cities just develop differently. Here in St. Louis we still have about a dozen or so historic buildings, the size of a city block, with redevelopment plans lined up waiting for funding. We also have one of the strongest rental markets in the Midwest right now. I'm sure when they get filled up we will see similar projects and will that makes us copycats? That's as weird as me saying that Cincinnati is a copycat and not the real deal, because St. Louis built its light rail 20 years ago and Cincinnati is just getting a streetcar....see how stupid that is?

This building is going to be great. Cincy has had a little hi rise boom the last couple of years and that project called "The Banks" is awesome. I really would like to see St. Louis use a similar strategy in our landing district north of the Arch.

Thankfully the rest of us in Cincinnati do not feel this way. I know I'm happy to see any city invested in, especially our older Midwestern cities which suffered from decades of decline. I don't really follow St. Louis much so I'm happy to hear that it is also doing well in many regards.

As for The Banks, it is a great project in combination with the shrinking and eventual capping of the highways that cut the waterfront off from Downtown and the new Riverfront Park make it a great extension of the city towards the water. Architecturally it leaves something to be desired, but urbanistically it is going to be pretty awesome in around 20 or so years when everything has been finished and has had time to settle in. I know I'm excited
