Skybus - New Airline - Fares So Low You Will Say Holy Crap!
All of that is okay by me, as they have flights to LA, Seattle, Boston, San Fran for no more than $200 round trip. They have flights as low as $5o each way regularily, and as low as $10 each way special price.

Moerlein OTR Ale - Don't Forget
Don't forget to check out the launch of the OTR Ale at a five day festival (tonight through SUnday) at Elder Cafe at Findlay Market! CiNWeekly has more on the event. And you can read a full breakdown from my blog a week ago.
I will probably be down there either Friday or Saturday night.

- You will see two orange oval shapes in front of the current freedom center lawn. These are to be restaurants, but it's not clear if they are phase I or II.
- Phases, on that note, you the site is an 8-10 year plan withe the two blocks between the Freedom Center and Great American being built first. The first phase will have up to 300,00 sq ft of office, 325 Condos, and 70-100,000 sq ft of retail.
- Freedom Way will be main street for development with retail/restaurants on both sides of the street.
- Timeline - Assuming the development agreement is finalized at it's deadline in a couple weeks (May 15th), it would be about 6 months to finalize some of the grants/finances to begin work. You would then see shovels in the ground building the parking garages by around Nov/Dec. 2007. It would be ready for occupancy then in late 2009. Still a long way off, but at least it's some progress instead of a wasteland.
This is an evening picture of the 2 blocks proposed to be developed first. You will see on the south side of the development (closest to the river) buildings that are lower. These are set to be lower density housing in the form of townhomes. You also see the glass restaruant sitting on the lawn of the Freedom Center. The glass building on the top left of the image is the planned office development. We should note that ALL of this can/likely will change to a certain extent as they finalize the plan and determine what the market will bear!
Here are two renderings of what things would look like from the street level looking towards Great American. All in all I think the new renderings looks great. It'll be nice to see some things coming out of the ground!
Mint Juleps on the Square - Derby Party May 5th - Fountain Square
And for those ambitious folks who plan on running the pig on Sunday May 6th, you can still come out for the fun, and we'll have plenty of spring water on sale at low cost!
