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."

Architects say they're about a month or two away from having a final design for the new dunnhumbyUSA building at the corner of Fifth and Race in downtown Cincinnati.  

Officials updated the city's Urban Design Review Board Tuesday about their preliminary work.  They said the challenge is to design a contemporary building that fits into the existing urban fabric of the city.  Architects say the outside of the building will be pre-cast concrete and lots of glass.  The concrete will have a dark color and will feature some texture.
