Constructing Cincinnati.

I could make a whole separate blog just about construction and demolition. It’s been really fascinating to watch. At least it has been for me. But I’m going to combine all the daily photos I took over the last week into this one blog post so our blog doesn’t become that blog all about construction. On Tuesday, I could see the windows of our old apartment at Sycamore Place across the way…

If you used that exit, the first step would be a doozy…

Thursday, November 8th:

Friday, November 9th:

Monday, November 12th:

And I recorded this time-lapse video of the last bit of the demolition…

I also posted a very condensed time-lapse on my Instagram. And all that’s left now is just a massive pile of rubble and debris.ย It’s weird to not see that building across the street when I leave work…

Tuesday, November 13th:

It was an ugly building anyway. At least it’s out of its misery.ย ๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿšงโค๏ธ

The building across the street continues to get shorter as the demolition continues

It looks like they made quite a bit of progress over the weekend. ๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿšงโค๏ธ

Everything is Awesome!

On my way back from Skyline to the office, I passed by this construction work taking place on Sixth Street…

Classic. Awesome indeed. ๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿ‘โค๏ธ

The deconstruction continues

The building’s entire roof has now been demolished by hand and most of the sixth floor is now gone. ๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿšงโค๏ธ

The hand demolition of the building continuedย across the street at the corner of Main and Eighth Street…

And down the street work continues on the building that is home to Taqueria Mercado at the corner of Walnut and Eighth Streets. That’s actually the entrance to their Mexican restaurant just above the furthest most construction pilon to the right…

It’s pretty amazing that they’ve been able to stay open through all the construction on the building they call home. ๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿšงโค๏ธ

What’s happening?!

When we stopped to get coffee at our beloved Sidewinder this morning, their front door was blocked and we had to go down the alley and through the back door…

We didn’t even know there was a back door. It reminded me of the time we when finally figured out how to get into Collective Espresso in Northside

It turns out Sidewinder was getting a new front door installed this morning…

We think Sidewinder’s coffee is just the best. And we love stopping to get coffee from Sidewinder in the mornings. But just twice a week because that stuff could get really expensive if you got it every day. ๐Ÿ˜€โ˜•๏ธโค๏ธ

Coming soon: Monk Asian Eatery.

It looks like there’s a new Asian eatery called Monk going in on Main Street between Sixth and Seventh Streets where The Orient used to be

I can’t wait to try this place once it opens. I hope it’s as good at The Orient or even better. Because you can never have too many good Asian eateries.ย ๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿœโค๏ธ

The demolition of the building across the street from Deskey continues…

I took this timelapse Instagram video of them deconstructing the little room on top of the building. It’s been really interesting to watch them start deconstructing this building mostly by hand.ย ๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿšงโค๏ธ

The building across Eighth Street from work is in the process of being demolished. With the exception of a Donato’s pizzeria on the ground floor, the building has been vacant for as long as I can remember. When Donato’s left a few months back, you kind of knew the building was going to be coming down. Last week, they started knocking all the windows out on the ground floor. This morning on our way into work the building was covered top to bottom with this blue mesh…

And here’s the view I have from my window at work…

And the view from the parking lot across Eighth Street…

One of the tenants in the Deskey building is a company called Streamspot. They do high-qualityย live streaming broadcasts. They set up a live stream of the demolition across the street. It’ll be interesting to watch this building come down. The building was kind of an eyesore and I don’t think it’ll be missed one bit. In its place, I think I heard they are planning to build condos that no normal person could ever afford.
But at least it’ll probably look nicer.ย ๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿšงโค๏ธ

Deskey details.

They started working on our roof this morning at work…

It was very loud up on the sixth floor with them working right above our headsall day.
