Monthly parkers that use the garage where the new highrise (QCSII) is going to be were sent notices a couple of weeks ago to find a new parking space because demolition was starting soon. Good news!

Good news Cincy, congratulations. Kind of reminds me of Wells Fargo in MPLS up to the crown, which not-so-vaguely resembles an open roof at Miller Park.

I got to drive past this on my way to Kings Island. I didn't know what it was at first and then I saw Phase One right beside the garage and knew it was QCS. It's interesting how close this is gonna be to 71 (well to me atleast). Also quite interesting to see it being taken down this way....I'm used to my city blowing stuff up..err, into itself.

There's no way this could have been imploded with 3rd, Broadway, and 4th Streets remaining open, not to mention the new class little brother sitting within feet next door.

Even though Dubai is developing at a pace no other city IN THE WORLD can touch ... It can have its architecture.

We know who she is ... she designed her first building built in the US here.



If there is any city that needs help in the architecture area, it isn't Cincinnati.

Too bad this is a classic 300 year old western city and not a random middle eastern city that popped up because of oil.
Cincinnati is building something timeless and beautiful that reflects the history and architecture of Cincinnati.
I think it is quiet the beauty!

Have you ever seen DT Cincinnati? Most of the buildings DT are amazing and offer details you don't see put into modern architecture.

This thread is about Queen City Square and you are coming over here stirring shit up with off-topic post. You've just been reported to the moderators. ZAHA HADID is fabulous and all ... but she has nothing to do with QCS. Get over it, or start a new thread.

Yes, but just because Europe is doing it doesn't mean it will age well.
Look at all that junk built in the 50's and 60's during rebuilding that was considered progressive at the time but ugly later.
Cincinnati is being smart about this. They are looking LONG TERM.
