Downtown Tour of Living returns to showcase changes to urban core

Downtown Cincinnati Inc. is reviving its Downtown Tour of Living on Saturday after a 10-year hiatus.

The self-guided tour, which is being held noon-5 p.m., includes 14 different buildings that showcase downtown living options ranging from traditional condominiums to open lofts and redesigned historic buildings.

This year’s event, which is co-sponsored by Switch Collection, was inspired by the many changes happening in the urban core.

“We have so many new apartment buildings downtown now,” DCI interim president and CEO Mindy Rosen told me. “In the past we had so few apartment buildings that occupancy was always around 90 percent. Now, it’s much easier to live downtown and find a place to live.”

She said about 15,000 people live downtown right now, but DCI would like to see 20,000 or more.

Rosen said development at the Banks and Smale Riverfront Park are major highlights that have been added to the urban core since DCI last held a tour. She said some of the highlights on this year’s tour are the Encore at Eighth and Sycamore streets, the City Club Apartments in the restored 309 Vine building and the Crane Factory Flats in the former Board of Elections office on Broadway.
