This would be a great time for Western Southern to approach Humana about Queen City Square Phase II.These sorts of stories are refreshing because it gives people confidence in the region. Cincinnati as a region looks to have a net gain in job growth recently. CitiBank, Humana coupled with the gains from the Federated and P&G mergers, it seems our metro has faired better than any other in Ohio when it comes to corporate expansion and mergers. We have encountered bumps though like losing Cinergy to Charlotte but overall it is a plus.
[inkaelin, are you referring to the thread's subject? You really can't get more Cincinnati than the Grand Baldwin Buildings in Walnut Hills/Eden Park and RiverCenter in Newport. I can only hope Humana will stay within this area.
What I don't understand is how Corporex could built roughly a half dozen completely drab mid-rises around town, then suddenly hire Daniel Liebeskind to design a condo tower, and now likely return to its "signature" pale pink color. The short building that appeared around 2003 at the corner of Eden Park & Gilbert is actually admirably subdued and really fits the site well and so my guess is Butler had nothing to do with.
Also, some big news: I heard through the grapevine that Corporex is going to shortly announce plans to move forward with the final phases of the Baldwin Complex at the base of Mt. Adams. Plans will call for another tower of 250,000 s.f., similar in size to Baldwin 200 (the newer square one) although it will not look exactly like it and will likely be located adjacant to the LAGA building. A hotel will also be announced for the spot closer to I-71. My source said the office building will start construction very soon and will share a 4-5 story parking deck with the hotel.To help udnerstand the site, these will sit across Eden Park Drive from the Grand Baldwin and Baldwin 200 buildings, and between the LAGA building and I-71, south of the Milacron Building.
