Constructing Northside.

Construction has made its way into Northside. They’ve been working on Hamilton Avenue on and off for a while now. And when I was walking home for the bus stop this evening, I noticed the construction was starting to migrate from Hamilton in our direction. At the intersection of Brookside and Pullan…

And on Donaldson around the corner from our house…

Up by the school, someone lost their 5…

Good evening from Northside. 😀🚧5⃣🌄❤️

Constructing Cincinnati.

The building at the corner of Main and Eighth Street is really coming along…

But I still can’t believe there won’t be any on-site parking. 😀🚧❤️

Constructing Cincinnati.

When I was on the Metro17 bus coming home, I managed to grab a pretty blurry snap of the building at the corner of Main and Eighth Streets. It has windows and siding on the front facade now…

I wonder what the apartments will look like on the inside. I heard somewhere that the building won’t be offering any on-site parking. And that’s kinda odd to me. 😀🚧❤️

Part of a building collapsed.

Early this afternoon on Fourth Street the sixth floor of a building under construction suffered a partial collapse

The part that collapsed is right at the base of the tower crane…

Unfortunately, reports said that multiple people were injured in the collapse. Cincinnati Police said one person has died, and Cincinnati Fire & EMS were still searching for at least two more victims. It’s really sad and pretty scary stuff.

The structural integrity of the rest of the building was being assessed. The bottom of the building was slated to be a new parking garage with an apartment community situated atop of the garage. I don’t know if I would feel comfortable living in a building where a section of one of the floors collapsed. But that’s just me. 😬🚧❤️

On a more upbeat Constructing Cincinnati note, a new Asian fusion restaurant has opened at the corner of Seventh and Walnut Streets called e+o

Progress continues on the building across the street from where I used to work

Metro+Transit.

Cincinnati Metro has moved to the Transit app with EZ Fare

The Transit app with EZ Fare gives Cincinnati riders a single, seamless way to pay for almost all of our rides. You can now buy and store passes for Metro, NKY’s Tank, Butler County RTA and the streetcar CB Connector all in one place. Unfortunately, it doesn’t offer a way to pay for the $30 Regional Stored-Value Cards that I like to use. I’ll still have to purchase those at one of the streetcar stations. But it’s still nice to have a couple of Metro passes and CB Connector passes stored in the transit app just in case of emergency. It’s pretty cool really.

Speaking of pretty cool, look at how tall the building is getting across the street from where I used to work…

And I accidentally snapped this photo on the bus, but I kinda like it…

I like riding the bus. 😀🚌🚧❤️

Downtown details.

This is the view from Grey Midwest‘s big conference room overlooking the Cincinnati Bengals Paul Brown Stadium, John A. Roebling Suspension Bridge and Ohio River…

And walking to catch the Metro 17 bus home after work, I got to admire the new building across the street from where I used to work as it continues to rise…

😀🚧❤️

Downtown details.

A while back, I did a kind of lackluster job of documenting my walk from work across downtown to catch the bus at Government Square. I gave it another pass tonight with similar results. I leave work and walk down McFarland Street…

This new graffiti just popped up the other day on Egan Alley…

I cross Elm Street and walk down Benham Alley…

There’s the construction site at Race and Fourth Streets with two tower cranes…

I walk down Fourth Street passed Unheardof sneaker shop…

On the other side of Vine Street, I walk by Aster on Fourth and the FC|C offices which were recently painted purple on the first two floors…

And I walk by the FC|C team shop

I walk by Dixie Terminal and Renaissance Hotel on Fourth Street and turn up Walnut Street to get Government Square on Fifth Street…

I really missed some key landmarks. Again. I’ll have to try to do a better job of documenting my walk from work down Fourth Street to catch the bus at Government Square. Maybe the third time will be the charm.  😀🏙️🚧❤️

Downtown details.

There was a big construction cone party out in front of Dixie Terminal on Fourth Street this morning…

It has to be some sort of joke right? 😀🚧❤️

Downtown details.

Good evening from my old stomping grounds at Eighth and Main Streets…

Good evening from downtown Cincinnati. 😀🏙️❤️

Constructing Cincinnati.

The building across the street from where I used to work is getting so tall

That building is going up in a hurry. 😀🚧❤️
