Do you think the fact there is not a national hotel brand associated makes it seem less likely? I read the whole Courier article and saw no brand or developer that I recognized, but that doesn't necessarily mean it won't happen.

That is a huge part of it.  The last person to announce a major hotel without a single hotel partner announced or even in the wings was the SCPA hotel.  Also, their financing plan has large gaps, etc.  Trust me, I'd want this to happen, but when you have a first phase of a parking garage, and a second phase of actually building things, it sounds a lot more like we're going to get a parking garage with some hope for future development.

I do not have knowledge of a hotel brand for this specific project, but I believe the Rookwood hotels proceeded without knowing the exact Marriott brand.  They knew they would be from the Marriott family, just not specifically a Courtyard and Residence Inn.  Hopefully for this project, they have a brand but not the specific hotel.  From what I've heard, this project is a go and it just takes time to get moving like anything else.

I saw they put up scaffolding when I went over my brother's house recently. What colors did they paint it?

Short Vine is looking much better now that most (not all) of the utility poles and terrible cobrahead lighting have been removed.

^Agreed! Short Vine is looking so much nicer these days.

Speaking of which... does anybody know when the Kroger is scheduled to open? And what's the plan for the second floor of the Kroger? It doesn't appear to be a "fake" floor (like the Walgreens)... so there must be some plan to actually use that second floor.

Cool before and after shot! You even got similar lighting & skies. Makes it look like they got the work done in an hour or two.

Many of the newer Kroger stores (even suburban ones) have managers offices on the second floor over the checkout area. If you look towards the front of the building they have windows that face out into the interior of the store where the boss man can look over the whole place.

Thanks! Got lucky with that one.

From my understanding it's going to be a true two-story grocery store with the lack of space they had available.

When I was interviewed to work at a Kroger video dept in 1997, the interview was in the office above the check-out area.  Lots of wood-paneled walls + a copy machine, file cabinets, bulletin boards, thumb tacks, motivational posters, water cooler.  Oh, and a window looking out over the whole store.

It is not a full two story grocery. Last time I checked the 2nd floor is a mezzanine around the outside of the building only (with the middle section being open full height space) and holds mostly back of house prep spaces, food coolers/freezers and offices. However it does also have a seating area for Starbucks, wine tasting etc above the cafe area.

Awesome! Thanks for clearing that up for me. The information I had was spotty at best.

The Hotel proposed where the old Burgundy's Prime Time will be an Element by Starwood. I know from a couple sources plus the rendering has the Element "E" on the side of the rendering.

Cincinnati Childrenís approves major expansion



Cincinnati Childrenís Hospital Medical Center is about to embark on a major expansion, the Enquirer reports.

The hospitalís board of trustees recently approved a plan to expand its number of beds in Corryville and Avondale by more than 30 percent. The plan includes the construction of 600,000 square feet of clinical-care space and renovating existing buildings at its Burnet Avenue campus. A new emergency department, expanded loading dock, pharmacy, kitchen space and respite space for staff will also be created.

Corry Street has been re-striped and now has a center turn lane. A traffic light has also been added at the intersection of Short Vine and West Corry Street, which is also the main way to enter/exit the parking lot of the new Kroger.

Now they want $250K. Your post triggered a Google Alert that increased the value by $100k.

So apparently this "map" is in the new Corryville Kroger:



No one working at Kroger noticed how bad and how wrong this is because they probably don't know where any of those institutions are located.
