Cincinnati, OH: A HOPE VI redevelopment that replaces superblocks with a traditional street grid, creates graceful public spaces, and introduces a broad mix of housing types. Distinguished by its high architectural standards, this redevelopment creates a coherent physical framework to support the reemergence of a diverse urban neighborhood.
City West is on the sites of the former Lincoln Court and Laurel Homes public housing projects. It is within walking distance of downtown Cincinnati. Its east-west artery links two prized institutions: Museum Center (at Union Terminal) and Music Hall.
