Kroger is rebranding itself into a "tech" company.  Kroger 2.0. 

Then they can rename the area around their HQ, KroBro.

North of Court is NoKro and south of Court is SoKro. 

A frilly wallpaper border around NoKro and SoKro signage would be RoKroco.

Developers revising $90 million Kenwood project

Capital Investment Group, which is planning a $90 million mixed-use development across the street from Kenwood Towne Centre, will be making some revisions to its plan.

Sycamore Township Zoning Commission voted against recommending the approval of the Gallery of Kenwood, a mixed-use project that would include apartments, a hotel, commercial space and two parking garages. The zoning commission’s vote is a recommendation to Sycamore Township’s board of trustees, which will have final say.

Not totally unexpected given the way Ohio's wealthier suburbs have been trying to densify themselves recently. Much better than Oakley Station or even some of that newer Rookwood stuff.

Yea I've been thinking for a year or two that kenwood might densify more and more over the next decade or so now that most all of the free space is filled in and that tower is finished.

All it needs is a BRT route that runs frequently, including nights and weekends, connecting it to the urban core.

The new Eastgate Medical Center. I'm pretty disappointed in the whole thing.

Glad to see that Duke Energy is preemptively upgrading/replacing aging parts of Cincinnati's power grid:

Quote
That's because Duke Energy Corp. (NYSE: DUK) is in the midst of a long-term initiative to upgrade more than one-fourth of the 420 underground transformers that power the Queen City. The Charlotte, N.C.-based electric power holding giant spent $4.4 million to replace 40 underground transformers last year and plans to invest another $12 million through 2019.

If you work downtown, you likely have already noticed Duke crews performing maintenance work this year and the subsequent traffic backups. So far, the company has replaced eight transformers in 2018. Ten more are in progress with another 23 are scheduled for replacement by year's end. [...]

"These are transformers that still work, but they’re about 40 to 50 years old," Freedman told me. "They’re reaching the end of their useful lives, and we’re just replacing them proactively to prevent any outages or any dangerous situations."

Now if they'd just work on burying some of overhead instead of doing nothing.  It wouldn't even have to be much, like 1% per year in municipal boundaries.  Something.  Anything!
