re

Phase 1 is a 9-floor office building, seen on the right of the first picture. It is already finished and is awaiting interior finishing. Phase 2 is the main tower. I've heard Phase 2 was a "go" and the tower is supposed to be 664'-8", but I haven't seen anything to confirm it.

Are you sure this thing is a "go?" It has been in limbo for a number of years and with the vacancy rate up in DT, can Cincy support a new high rise?

They are actively trying to get companies from the suburbs or other cities to locate in the building. Should be interesting to see if they can finally get it off the ground, they have been working on this for several years. With that said, I really like the design and it would make a huge impact on the downtown skyline.

I really like the design too, I just think it should be more "slender" to complement the crown. I have always thought that this building would compliment indy's skyline nicely.

I like the building, but I don't get the "crown." It looks more like a tiara to me ... fit for a queen.

But, seriously, would that just be wasted space? Just an ultra large atrium at the top of this building? Seems like it would cost a ton for relatively little use. I bet it would look good lit up at night though. Perhaps alternating Orange and Black lights on the panes when the Bengals make a run in the playoffs and Red if the ... nevermind.

Looks nice. I just don't get the tiara.

Rarely do the top of hi-rises go without the usual antennas and satellite equipment.

The project is called "Queen City Square" ... Cincinnati is "The Queen City" ... hence the tiara.

I get it. That is why I call it a tiara.

However, just because the city is called the Queen City does not justify a developer putting a useless tiara on top of this building. What is the purpose of it? Does anyone know? It is just for looks?

If anything, this project will not happen. There's little sign of progress, and the market cannot support it. There is no market in Ohio that can support this much new square footage in their CBD. If it's ever built (say ten years down the road), it won't be anywhere near this size.

Toledo will take it. This can be the new downtown headquarters for HCR Manor as they move from a leased property to their owned property.

Dude, you must work for W&S ... how do you know this type of inside info? Keep us in the loop!
