please no more Cornerstone at Norwood/Pictoria crap around the metro.
I think it may very well be the nicest new building in Cincy area - maybe even the Tri-State.
I ate lunch on HPS last weekend and it took away my earlier concerns that it was going to look out of place in the square because it's such a large building. Setting the upper floors back keeps it from looking overly imposing due to height. Really a great looking building that I think will breathe some new life in the square. Well done
I think most units in this building have been sold. Expect in the near future a similar project on the SibcyCline realty site at the corner of Edwards and Erie.
Breath some new life in the Square? HP Square seems to have plenty of life to me
Having lived in Hyde Park from '78 to '95, from my perspective HPS is a shell of it's former self. The only evidence you need is the list of restaurants in the above post.
For the record, I think for people my age Hyde Park Square is fairly boring and Oakley Square and its business district has more to offer (i.e. a music venue, boutique shops, and bars). So excuse me for my throw away line, but anything else at street level in Hyde Park Square is new to me so please spare me your "snarky tone".

I did hear that the Sibcy Cline office is relocating to bigger digs. So come on, spill the beans! What can we expect and when?
I'm pretty sure all those restaurants were at the same location, which for whatever reason can not seem to keep a tenant.What appeals to a small child is not going to appeal to the average adult. Yeah, it kind of sucks that Hyde Park Square no longer has two drugstores, a barber shop, Zino's, Drew's Bookstore, etc. I also don't shop at high end women's clothing stores and art galleries. But saying that Hyde Park is a shell of its former self would be like saying, oh, I don't know, maybe that you are a shell of your former self, since you don't do the same things at 28 that you did at 12. Are you really that bereft over the dissapearance of Eagle Savings and Loan, or the Tennis Pro Shop?
I pulled out my snarky tone to check you melodramatic angst. Scissors cuts paper. I agree with you, Hyde Park Square is quite boring. It's usually overpriced as well. In fact, that perfectly describes the club sandwich at The Echo, boring and overpriced. And what could be more Hyde Park Square than that? But let's be honest, just because you don't like a place means it's dead, or bad per se. So until Shake It Records and Sitwell's moved into the storefront of Michigan Terrace, let's shed no tears for Hyde Park Square.
