Cincinnati, over and out of Over-the-Rhine
Authored by Sherman Cahal on June 13, 2009 at UrbanUp

This is the third installment of a photographic series covering the built environment in Cincinnati. Click on the respective links in the headers for even more photographs and information and be sure to click through onto the UrbanUp blog for more photographs and text!

Over-the-Rhine
My neighborhood, and damn proud of it as gritty as it is in parts.

2 Viewed from this angle, Cincinnati is incredibly dense. Too bad that in reality, surface lots pockmark the journey towards downtown.

4 The following are views along Central Parkway east to west, once home to the Ohio and Erie Canal and later our incomplete subway.


5 The building stock resembles nothing of the designs inside Over-the-Rhine. This was more 'public facing' and was on a busier throughfare, and was subsequently redeveloped in the earlier 1900s. If only the trend continued on, we might have seen more of Over-the-Rhine's Italianite structures demolished.

8 Bleh.


9 The Emery, where I live! A large unused theater attaches to the rear.


10 American Building


11


12 School for Creative and Performing Arts, the only public school dedicated solely for that purpose. Quite a diverse structure that replaces a mega surface lot next to Washington Park.


13 YMCA


Gateway Quarter
The Gateway Quarter is a mixed-use development project bounded by Central Parkway, 13th, Vine and Race streets in Over-the-Rhine. It is being developed by the Cincinnati Center City Development Corporation, or 3CDC, along with The Model Group, Urban Sites, B2B Equities and Northpointe Group. The four-phase project is slated to have 400 residential units completed by 2010, with each new year coinciding with each new phase of the project.

14 New units along 12th Street.


15 A streetscaping project is underway along Vine that involves burying utilities, installing new sidewalks and brick pavers, and repaving the roadway.
