Downtown Cincinnati

The offices of dunnhumby USA are still under construction but the parking garage beneath those offices is open.  City leaders cut the ribbon on the 1,000 space garage Monday morning.  Construction on the project at 5th and Race began in January 2013.   

The building includes six floors of parking and three floors of office space, with retail on the ground floor.

The president of PNC Bank, Kay Geiger, calls the project "transformative."

Introducing Dick Waller's Art Place

Oct 31, 2014

Cincinnati treasure Dick Waller is starting his third career at age 86 with the opening of his own art studio – Dick Waller’s Art Place - on West Court Street in downtown. Dick has teamed up with local gallery owner Sylvia Rombus and they are in our studio to talk about this new venture with Anne Arenstein.

  The 13th annual MidPoint Music Festival kicks off this Thursday, offering festival goers three days of music, fun, food and drink, in various venues throughout Over the Rhine and downtown. While headliners at this year’'s MidPoint are The Afghan Whigs, Chromeo and OK Go, the festival continues to embrace emerging artists, the bands people will be talking about next year.

Downtown Cincinnati is full of flashing construction arrow signs and traffic cones blocking streets...causing delays for workers and visitors.  

City spokeswoman Meg Olberding said it is part of a "growth explosion."

“In my time at the city, I don’t remember quite this much construction happening in a concentrated area of the CBD, The banks and Over-the-Rhine,” Olberding said.  “Obviously you do one thing one place, and it has a ripple effect.”

There are various projects including streetcar construction, Duke Energy utility work and private developments.
