Cincinnati in 2012 [69 Photos]

Cincinnati in 2012 [69 Photos]

Locations of the photos are listed in the main link above.

The following photographs are from a walking tour of downtown and Over-the-Rhine Cincinnati, Ohio in June 2012. Much has been completed or changed since then - and "after" imagery is provided.

The tour began at St. Xavier Church which was*built in 1860 for the Society of Jesus.*The parish has been under the direction of the Society of Jesus (Jesuits) since 1840. The present-day stone-faced and brick church, designed by Lewis Pickett and Charles C. Svendsen,*was constructed in 1860.*Xavier University*and St. Xavier High School were founded adjacent to the church.

The Este Building*is located at East 7th and Main streets*and was constructed in 1905.

The Duttenhoffer Building*is located at East 6th Street at Sycamore Street*and*was constructed in 1916 for Val*Duttenhofer Sons Company, a shoe manufacturer.

Val*Duttenhofer Sons was founded in 1891 in Walnut Hills by Val Duttenhofer as a mid-priced shoe manufacturer but rapid growth led the company to relocate to downtown at East 8th and Sycamore street. It was there that his two sons, Val and John, learned the shoe trade and took over management of the company in 1901. Further growth led*Val*Duttenhofer Sons*to became a stock company in 1903.

In the spring of 1907, the company acquired a factory on Sycamore Street for $185,000. By 1908, the company was manufacturing 4,000 pairs of shoes per day with their plant having the ability to produce 4,500 pairs per day. A larger structure was completed at East 6th and Sycamore in 1916.

In 1922,*Val*Duttenhofer Sons announced that two out-of-town factories would be constructed as a result of the Cincinnati shoeworkers’ strike, which at that point of ten weeks duration.

The*Duttenhofer Building was later home to*Union of American Hebrew Congregations and then served as an auxiliary building for Proctor & Gamble.

The Trust Building, also referred to as PNC Center,*is located at East 5th and Main streets*and was constructed from 1978-79.

The Cincinnati Chamber of Commerce Building*is located at West Fourth and Race streets and was constructed in 1927 for the Cincinnati Chamber of Commerce. The 15-story skyscraper was designed in the Neo-Classicism architectural style by Hake & Kuck and Tietig & Lee. The interior was lavish, with terrazzo flooring, arched hallways, decorative molding and Art Deco-styled elevators. The 14th floor boasted a gentlemen’s lounge, which featured dark oak walls, Renaissance-era columns and a 28-foot ceiling lined with gold friezes of angels.

The building was reused for the*Federal Reserve Bank of Cleveland, Cincinnati Branch after the Chamber of Commerce relocated.

The Federal Reserve moved to a new facility in downtown in 1971 and the skyscraper was reused for tenants that included Huntington Bank, Ohio National Financial Services and Stock Yards Bank &amp; Trust Company. The building was purchased by Lanny Holbrook of the Heritage Managing Group, in 1998, but languished as newer commercial towers opened elsewhere, such as*<a title="Queen City Square" href="http://urbanup.net/cities/ohio/cincinnati-ohio/downtown/queen-city-square]Queen City Square[/url].

In June early 2010, Ashley Development Company of Edgewood, Kentucky, in partnership with Aradia Communities of Louisville, proposed a $20.2 million conversion of the Federal Reserve Bank Building into 88 upscale apartments over eleven floors and offices on the remaining five lower levels. Ashley Development was awarded $2.5 million in Ohio Historic Preservation Tax Credits on June 25 and a $750,000 Clean Ohio grant in November. The grant was requested to help mitigate the cost of asbestos abatement.*The rehabilitated Reserve at 4th and Race opened for tenants in August 2012.

The Millennium Hotel*is located at West 5th and Elm streets and consists of two towers that was built for the Regal Hotel. The first building constructed*was designed by Architekton and constructed in 1970. At 21-stories high, it was one of the tallest hotels in the city.*A second, 32-story building was designed by Welton Becket and Associates and erected in 1977.

Over the years, the hotel operated under several brand names, including Clarion and Stouffer before switching to Millennium Hotels and Resorts. Circa 2001, Millennium franchised the older tower to Starwood and rebranded it as Four Points by Sheraton while the newer tower remained the Millennium Hotel. In 2005, both towers were switched to the Millennium Hotel brand.

dunnhumby Centre*is commercial and retail development at 5th and Race streets*for DunnhumbyUSA. It replaced the 14-story Fifth &amp; Race Tower, which had been completed in 1974 as part of an urban renewal project.

<a title="312 Elm Street" href="http://urbanup.net/cities/ohio/cincinnati-ohio/downtown/312-elm-street]312 Elm Street[/url]*is*located at 312 Elm at West 3rd street*and was*constructed in 1992 for the Cincinnati Enquirer. The 25-story tower was designed by Space Design International and is 312-feet in height. A twin tower was once planned for the site just to the east, but poor market conditions led to its cancellation.

After a brief downpour, the tour resumed from Over-the-Rhine along Main Street.

The Woodward Theater*is former theater at 14th and Main street and was constructed in 1913.*In the 1950s, the theater closed and was renovated into a Kroger store. More recently, it was home to Greg’s Antiques.

On February 27, 2013, MOTR Pub’s Dan McCabe and Chris Schadler acquired the Woodward for $375,000 with plans to convert the building into a 600-capacity concert hall. Financing was derived from a $2.5 million loan from the Cincinnati Development Fund.*The renovations include the elimination of a staircase in the center, a new staircase to the side, new bathrooms and bars and a stage.

A lot has happened since this walkabout in downtown and Over-the-Rhine. Look for further (and more timely) updates!

Very characterful and colourful images from Cincinnati. Lots of development and regeneration potential. Vine Street looks great.
