In a wrap-up of The City to Scale series, here are a few personal favorite unrealized visions of what could've been here in Cincinnati:
Proposed in 1998, rejected in 2001 by OKI.
Proposed in 1996, eliminated 10/26/2001 by USOC selection committee.
Nick Vehr's vision and marketing efforts.
CMC Office Towers (1971).
Proposed redevelopment of the then-abandoned complex.
Broadway Commons, Over-the-Rhine.
Jim Tarbell's dream development for rejuvenating the old neighborhood.
Ovation, Newport KY.
Northern Kentucky's version of The Banks, via Bill Butler.
Millennium Monument, Newport KY (1997).
Proposed by Wayne Carlisle and David Hosea (DW Productions).
Only the foundational footings of the tower were set, in the
vacant parking lot next to the World Peace Bell structure.
McMillan Park, Clifton (2001).
Originally proposed by Dan Deering, only the left half was built.
Though, there's new hope for completion by Towne Properties.
David C. Imboden's ongoing vision for Dayton, KY.
(aka The Banks/Ovation, Part 3).
Covington Harbor, Covington KY.
An extension of Bill Butler's Corporex development,
though Covington has had many announcements of this sort
(1998, 2003, etc.).
Fountain Square West.
Part of CAC's 1999 Unbuilt Cincinnati exhibit.
Concept reconstructed by Midwest Model Makers.
University Plaza, Clifton (2005).
Proposed redevelopment of Corryville (Short Vine) district.
