What are the ingredients to a great retail corridor and how do communities get there? As urban communities revitalize, not all communities are achieving the same momentum. What drives revitalization in one business district and not the other? This session will showcase several on-the-ground strategies to developing successful urban mixed-use urban retail districts and corridors including examples from Cincinnati’s Over-the-Rhine neighborhood, College Hill, Camp Washington and Mt. Healthy.
First, we explore what went into developing the retail district in one of the largest revitalization efforts in the country, Over-the-Rhine. Then, we examine how the lessons learned there were applied in three very unique communities. College Hill, with a retail corridor over a mile long, has found success in developing key parts of its neighborhood. In Camp Washington where the neighborhoods revitalization is just beginning after rebuilding its brand. And finally, in Mt. Healthy where the towns business corridor is being set upon a new path based on a new community planning effort.
