Living and Working in Over-the-Rhine!

Mention Cincinnati’s Over-the-Rhine (OTR) in a conversation and watch what kind of response you get!

Chances are that if you live anywhere in greater Cincinnati you have visited Over-the-Rhine.  Located within walking distance of downtown Cincinnati- loosely bordered by Dorsey, Sycamore, Eleanor, Reading, McMicken, Central Parkway and Vine Streets- the area is probably best know as the home of historic Music Hall.

The School for Creative and Performing Arts

Findlay Market

In addition these well known popular spots, the area boasts a thriving and involved business community am you guessed it – a robust residential real estate market.  Apartments, condos and single family homes are available.  Much of the inventory (apartments, lofts, townhomes, flats, freestanding) are located in buildings which have been totally renovated/updated throughout.  However since the location has begun to bloom again -sections with empty lots are already under construction.

One example is Pleasant Street which appears to have several empty lots on Google Earth…….
…today boast several active and pending sales of for brand new homes.

Many organizations and businesses have a vested interested in helping OTR.  One of the better known is 3CDC which has spearheaded several improvement projects within the area.

In addition to being able to walk or ride a bike to work or shop at Findlay Market, OTR also has a lot of activities-not only in the evening but also during the day.  Check out the OTR Gateway which provides a calendar of events and activities.

Once again talk of moving into the city sparks discussion in our household-not because of actual location- but because like many boomers one person wants a house in the woods (men) and the other wants to walk out the door to get a cup of tea and grocery shop at Findlay Market.
