Constructing Cincinnati.

I rode the Metro 17 bus into work this morning. It’s been a minute since I rode the bus to work. I couldn’t help but notice that they’re tearing down the old Deaconess Hospital across Clifton Avenue from UC’s campus to make way for new apartments…

And downtown on the corner of Walnut and Court Streets, the new apartment tower keeps extending upwards. This building’s parking garage is already open…

The work on the foundation continuesΒ across the street

What the actual heck?

One of the things I love about our street is this open green space. We think it belongs to the Montessori school up the hill at the end of our street. Over the last couple of weeks, someone has been dumping stuff in this space. First, it was a big pile of wood chips. Then there was another pile of wood chips. And some tree trunks…

It was making me more and more irritated. I could only think that it had to be from one of the houses that are being renovated on our street. Most likely from the house right across the street…

And they were the ones that were dumping their waste in this space…

And then there was also some mulch…

And a bunch of fence posts…

And then yesterday morning, there were a bunch of people and kids working in the space. Turns out they are from the Montessori school are turning part of the green space into an orchard/fruit farm…

I was getting all fired up for nothing. Nothing at all. πŸ€ͺ🌳🍏❀️

It looks like they’ve begun building the foundation across the street

They’re back to digging holes across the street from work…

I don’t work in construction but it’s pretty weird to be that they filled in a hole with dirt only then to remove the dirt again. It’s just odd. πŸ˜€πŸš§β€οΈ

I wonder if they’re finished across the street. I wouldn’t be at all surprised if they just paved over the space and called it a new surface parking lot…

I don’t think that’s the plan. But it looks like it could happen.πŸ˜€πŸš§β€οΈ

Running errands around downtown Cincinnati this afternoon, I noticed they were doing renovations to the building next to Igby’s on Sixth Street…

Even after all this time, I still get excited whenever I see stuff like this. My first thought is always, “I wonder what’s going to be opening soon in that space.” It’s always fun when new stuff opens. And I love getting to go and check out new places when they open.

I still don’t know what they are doing across the street from work

I’m beginning to think that they don’ t really know either. πŸ˜€πŸš§β€οΈ

Watch that first step.

They were working on the elevator today at work…

Have you ever looked up a six-floor elevator shaft before?

Me either. Watch that first step. It’s a doozie. Taken with Instagram. πŸ˜€πŸ†™β€οΈ

I’m still not sure what’s going on across the street from work…

Looking up the shaft.

They’re working on the elevator at work this morning…

Have you ever looked up a six-floor elevator shaft before?

Yeah. Me either. Looks like I’m going to be taking the stairs today. It’s a good thing my hips are feeling so much better now. Taken with Instagram. πŸ˜€β¬†οΈπŸ†™β€οΈ
