At the Cincinnati Urban Renaissance: 2013 and Beyond round table event organized by the University of Cincinnati Real Estate Center and the Urban Land Institute, speakers discussed the transformation of our City’s urban core. From the Business Courier:
Lydia Jacobs-Horton, director of Procter & Gamble Co.’s Global Facilities and Real Estate Organization, said downtown improvements, including a streetcar system, casino and upgraded parks on the Cincinnati Riverfront and Over-the-Rhine, will have a direct bearing on P&G’s ability to attract talent.

One of Cincinnati’s greatest strengths is the abundance of Fortune 500 companies like Procter and Gamble, Macy’s and Fifth Third Bank among others. These dynamic corporations are a key engine of growth and job creation for our region. In order to remain competitive, these companies will need to attract the best talent to keep pace in the rapidly evolving, knowledge-based economy of the 21st Century.
Improvements to our City like the Cincinnati Streetcar and the continuing progress on our riverfront will help these companies attract talented workers remain strong in the years to come. Support Cincinnati Businesses–Ride the Streetcar.
