The Future of Downtown Cincinnati

With the recent opening of AC at The Banks and Holiday Inn Hotel and Suites, the development of new housing at the City Club Apartments and Encore Apartments at 8th and Sycamore, and parking options at Mabley Place Garage and 84.51° Garage, the Central Business District is a place you can live, work, play, and raise a family! Notable upcoming developments include the construction of the new Kroger at Court and Walnut Streets, the $38 Million renovation of the Provident Bank Building at 7th and Vine, and the $44 Million Kimpton Hotel coming to 5th and Walnut Streets. 

Downtown Cincinnati Inc. works with these partners to advance their projects and track their progress to communicate to our stakeholders in our urban core.
