    Apr 05, 2016

    84.51° is proud to be a part of Downtown Cincinnati, a diverse community that’s energizing, encouraging, and fun. Even the name, 84.51°, represents something unique – it’s an ode to our pioneering spirit and also happens to be the longitude of our headquarters at the corner of Fifth and Race streets in Downtown Cincinnati. So what do we do at 84.51°? We turn data into knowledge and help our clients think about how to help their customers in new and innovative ways. Our passion lies in making people’s lives easier—that includes our customers, our partners and our community.


    We Love Cincinnati

    Supporting the members of DCI is a natural fit for 84.51° because we share love for the community and passion for continuing its advancement. There’s a long overdue revolution taking place in business, and we’re proud to be a part of the Cincinnati community that is leading the way. 84.51° was founded on the principle that building the bottom line should be a result, not the primary objective. Focusing on analytics and customer insights, every decision made is about each individual and what he or she wants, and we strive to extend that philosophy into the community.

    We Love Startups

    84.51° is committed to ensuring the Cincinnati region continues to be an innovative leader in the Midwest, aiming to prove that places like Silicon Valley and New York City aren’t the only innovation hubs. Our Startups in Residence program supports the community’s startup ecosystem by offering dedicated workspace in the 84.51° headquarters, including mentorship sessions and access to highly experienced people and technology. Providing these opportunities not only encourages growth of new companies that will create more jobs for the area, but it also gives 84.51° employees the chance to collaborate with other innovative minds.  


    We Love Non-Profit Organizations

    Making life more rewarding for our community and associates is an essential part of the 84.51° culture. We’ve grown to know and love the community of Cincinnati by engaging in a range of activities to get together and serve the community while having fun as a team. A big initiative within the company is the Degrees of Giving program, where employees identify non-profit organizations for which they are passionate, and then a company-wide voting process determines which of the selections the company will support each year.

    We Can’t Wait for the Future

    These are just a few ways we’re rewriting best practices within the Cincinnati community while enjoying the adventure, support and diversity it has to offer. We are creating deeper, more meaningful relationships and we are excited about achieving extraordinary success in the Cincinnati community and beyond.

  • Greater Cincinnati Automobile Dealers Association

    Feb 17, 2016

    For more than 30 years the Greater Cincinnati Automobile Dealers Association (GCADA) has operated the Downtown License Bureau, located in the County Administration Building at 138 E. Court Street in Room 100. The location is perfect for downtown residents and employees as it’s just a few short blocks from nearly any office building or location in downtown Cincinnati. 

    What started out as a members-only service ultimately became a full-fledged agency offering the full array of deputy registrar services. Our services include issuing driver’s licenses and state photo identification cards, BCI and FBI fingerprinting (Webcheck), out-of-state inspections, vehicle registration for license plates, renewals, transfers and 30-day tags, accepting payments for license reinstatement fees, and notary service.

    Most importantly, this office is staffed with qualified individuals who collectively have more than 90 years of experience assisting the downtown community with their licensing and vehicle registration needs. There’s hardly a scenario in which they cannot provide people the service or guidance they need to complete a transaction.

    About GCADA

    The Downtown License Bureau’s operator, the GCADA, is a professional trade organization representing franchised automobile retailers in Greater Cincinnati, Northern Kentucky and Southeast Indiana. We and our members are active in the community – promoting public safety, and supporting charitable activities. The two public outreach programs in which the Association are most active are the Safe Travel for Kids!!™ Program and the CPR Manikin Donation Program. 

    The Safe Travel for Kids!!™ Program was inspired by the GCADA’s longtime relationship with Cincinnati Children’s Hospital’s (CCHMC) Comprehensive Children’s Injury Center (CCIC).  Year-round the GCADA and our partners Cincinnati Children’s and Evenflo, engage in numerous giveaways, initiatives, and events to promote car seat and booster seat safety!

    Our Association is also an Ambassador of the National Automobile Dealers Charitable Foundation (NADCF) through which we conduct our CPR Manikin Donation Program.  This program allows our automotive retailers to assist in distributing cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) manikins to non-profit organizations in the area that provide CPR training.  These are just a few examples of the things automotive retailers do in their communities.

    The Cincinnati Auto Expo 

    The GCADA also presents the Cincinnati Auto Expo which is the region’s largest retail automotive event drawing car enthusiasts, and soon-to-be buyers from the Tristate area. This annual event kicks-off on Wednesday, February 17 at the Duke Energy Convention Center from 5 - 9 p.m. with the REV IT UP!! Sneak Peek Preview which is open to the public. For this one night, admission is only $1! All night long there will be $1 hot dogs, $1 soft drinks, $3 domestic beer, and a great time!  Thursday and Friday afternoon, there will be matinee prices, giving early comers a discount, and everyday children ages 12 and under will be FREE when accompanied by a paying adult.  We’re also bringing back our hit Safe Travel for Kids!!™ Family Zone which will include activities the entire family can enjoy - face painting, goodie bags for kids, a swing set, trampoline, and more.

    Mark your calendars for the extravaganza, February 17-21, 2016; this is an Auto Expo that you won’t want to miss!

    The GCADA has been proud to be a part of the fabric of the downtown community for more than 30 years, providing licensing and registration services, and presenting one of the largest consumer events each year in the heart of the city.  It’s for these reasons that we’re honored to be a supporting member of Downtown Cincinnati Inc.

  • Booksellers on Fountain Square

    Dec 09, 2015

    I'm Kimberly, and I work part-time at The Booksellers on Fountain Square. I've lived in Downtown Cincinnati for 10 years. The transformation the city has gone through in those 10 years amazes me, as does the love I have for Cincinnati. I've lived in and traveled to bigger cities, but there's something about Cincinnati that has my heart. The recent and continued growth builds upon our history and gives us so much – so many things to do and see, classic architecture mixed with new, modern buildings, a variety of beautiful outdoor spaces, and an incredible sense of pride that we all share. Longtime residents, recent transplants, and even those just visiting for the weekend all have stories and wonderful experiences to share about Cincinnati, and everyone I meet seems to feel the same way I do​ – Cincinnati is home.  
    I've worked at The Booksellers on Fountain Square since it opened in September 2013. Two years later, customers are still discovering us and telling how glad they are that we are here. The city needed a bookstore like ours – a place to peruse new, notable and classic titles, gifts, and stationery, a cafe to grab a quick cup of coffee or a leisurely lunch, and a place to have a conversation with a fellow book browser or our store and cafe staff.   
    All of us at The Booksellers love what we do – we love books & we love the city! We don't just recommend and sell books, we also recommend and sell the city! We share our favorite restaurants, shops, things to do, places to see, ​and the history of the city with locals and tourists alike. What we don't know can be found in our Local Interest section, which features books about the city and the region, architecture, industry, culture and arts, sports, food and cooking, as well as locally made souvenirs & culinary treats.  
    The Booksellers on Fountain Square is proud to be a member of Downtown Cincinnati, Inc. DCI continues to preserve our city's history and showcases all we have to offer. Their support of businesses, culture, and a variety of activities and events contributes to the growth of the city and the overall region. Like DCI, we love Cincinnati – the people, the transformation, everything there is to see and do, the history of what it was and the future of what it will be...And we are excited to be a part of it!    

    If you haven't had a chance to meet us yet, or if you just need a reason to stop in again, here's a coupon for 20% off any book in stock, good through December 31st. We hope to see you soon!

    But the school is not without its challenges.

That’s why the school relies so heavily on the generous support of individuals, corporations, foundations and organizations to help The School for Creative and Performing Arts maintain its important legacy in Cincinnati.
