From art museums to botanical gardens to stadiums to parks, the city of Cincinnati in Ohio has it all. Ranked one of the best places to live in the United States of America, it boasts a diverse economy, low-cost living, excellent family-friendly streets, and a boatload of jobs.

But, Jared Kamrass of Cincinnati, OH states that as the latest real estate news shows, there’s more coming to the area for Cincinnatians to look forward to. 

Downtown Cincinnati Building to Be Sold for $3 Million to The City

Last Wednesday, the city council voted to purchase 101 W. Fifth St. from Saks, the luxury retailer, for $3 million, giving them complete control over the coveted downtown site. 

According to officials, the lump sum will come from the TIF (tax-increment financing district) that funds developments in the southern downtown area of the city.

Saks occupied the property from 1984 until December 2022, when the city unanimously decided to buy the site. Mayor Aftab Pureval reportedly stated that the future of the building is bright — it will be instrumental in reinvigorating Cincinnati’s convention center district. 

While it’s unclear precisely what the Council will do with the former Saks building, councilmember Jeff Cramerding assures residents that it will increase vitality and bring more energy to the block. 

Cincinnati Leads the Nation with Fastest-Selling Homes

Cincinnati Children’s Hospital’s New Behavioral Health Facility to Finalize in The Fourth Quarter

The new behavioral health facility has been in the pipeline for years, but the building is set to be completed in the final quarter of 2023. 

The $99 million state-of-the-art inpatient mental health development will encompass 160,000 square feet, boasting 68% more room than the current facility.

Throughout its five stories, the building is replacing the current inpatient suite on the College Hill campus. All inpatients at the new facility will get a private room, allowing families to visit and stay more easily than before. 

Such transformational improvements will ensure the Cincinnati Children’s Hospital can better foster an engaging, therapeutic, and patient-centric environment.
