Field Trip to Cincinnati, Ohio: Part 2

A few weeks ago, I visited Cincinnati and saw many remarkable townhouses in the Over-the-Rhine neighborhood.  Some have been fixed up, and the mix of old and new has produced a vibrant community (mentioned in Part 1).  As I understand it, redevelopment efforts are being sustained by the Cincinnati Center City Development Corp. ("3CDC"), which acts as both a developer and capital source; other developers like OTR Community Housing, Eber Development, and Urban Sites; and architects like Schickel Design, whose Martha Dorff graciously gave me a tour of the City Home project and showed me plans for future phases.  The area is also promoted by organizations like Urban Living Gateway Quarter, OTR Gateway, OTR Foundation, and OTR Chamber.  Check out all the websites for plenty of photos of what urban revitalization should look like.
