Phase one of the Cincinnati Streetcar already adding jobs to center city

Posted on Updated on

Hundreds of new residents have been buying condos and renting new apartments along the phase one route of the Cincinnati Streetcar, but office tenants are also starting to flock to the line, according to a story from the Business Courier this week.

Randy Simes reports that the owners of Over-the-Rhine’s historic Hanke Building have seen an uptick in occupancy rates, over the past three years, from 28% in 2010 to 84% now! These owners don’t just own the Hanke Building, but a collection of four other buildings in the Main Street area, and say that they are excited for the streetcar’s arrival.

Get the full details by checking out the story online!

    Maybe a stretch to credit the street car – the owners seem to give a lot of credit to the easy access to parking.
