$30M; 100+ properties acquired
The Uptown Consortium, in partnership with the City of Cincinnati, has invested $30 million plus to gain site control of more than 120 parcels along the Innovation Corridor. This will allow the Corridor to develop in a manner consistent with our goals and vision.
$598M investments in Four Anchor Developments
Four major developments that will serve as anchors for the Innovation Corridor are already planned, underway or open. The $38 million UC 1819 Innovation Hub, the University of Cincinnati’s innovation and research accelerator, opened in the fall of 2017. MLK Investors will feature a $250 million mixed-use development in the northeast quadrant. Terrex and Messer are building a $200 million mixed-use development in the southeast quadrant featuring the UC digital futures building. And NIOSH has signaled its intention to build a $110 million facility in the northwest quadrant.
$80M MLK Interchange at Martin Luther King Boulevard
This $80 million infrastructure project opened in August 2017. This project – the culmination of a decade of efforts by the Uptown Consortium, City of Cincinnati, neighborhood stakeholders, OKI, Ohio Department of Transportation and others – dramatically improves connectivity to and from Uptown Cincinnati and the Uptown Innovation Corridor.
