Construction will soon begin on a new single-family home in the Central Business District of Downtown Cincinnati. The home is the first residential home to be built in the area in quite some time. Quest Real Estate LLC is building the home to gauge the interest in homes in the area.
The three-story house will be built on Fourth Street Historic District and will cost around $1 million. The exterior of the home will look the same as the rest of the area, keep it in sync with the district, but the inside of the house will feature an open floor plan and large windows, to make it feel more like a home. There will also be a garage, which is a big feature for the home, because the garage will allow the drive to turn around in it so the driver never has to back out onto the busy street.
A home like this does not exist anywhere else in the area, and will resemble many downtown Chicago homes. Currently most of the Downtown living is in the Over-the-Rhine area of the city, so this home offers many advantages to business executives and athletes because of its proximity to the business district and stadiums.
Though they could have pre-sold the home before starting the process, the developers are confident that the home will be sold, and sold quickly.
If you are looking to move into downtown Cincinnati, let All My Sons provide you with a stress free move.
The nonprofit organization known as Wasson Way has made plans to turn a 6.5 mile stretch of decommissioned railroad tracks into a pedestrian and bike trail. This trail will connect to more than 100 other bike trails in the Cincinnati area.
Wasson Way hopes to further connect the community to each other when it takes this idle piece of land, and turns it into something that everyone can use. It is projected that the trail will cost somewhere between 7.5 and 11.2 million dollars. The organization is gathering the necessary funds for the project through fundraising events and federal grants.
Currently the organization is awaiting more than 2 million dollars in federal grant money. They are also still awaiting the approval from Norfolk Southern Railroad to purchase the stretch of unused tracks.
If all goes according to plan, Wasson Way hopes to have the project under way in 2015. Wasson Way is one of four nonprofits actively seeking to build bike paths and trails connecting throughout the city. These nonprofits are looking to provide residents with a unique way to get moving through Cincinnati, and hopefully further connect the residents of Cincinnati with one another.
Be sure to visit the Wasson Way website for more information and updates on the project.
If you follow the St. Jude Dream Home Giveaway events, you may be aware that your professional Cincinnati movers here at All My Sons proudly sponsor the cause along with many local Cincinnati businesses. This year was particularly special, as we received a heart-warming thank you letter from an individual who was very grateful to have won two American Express Gift Cards –donated by your local Cincinnati relocation providers here– via raffle drawing.
Jim, the winner of the AMEX gift card raffle drawing, recognized a very interesting aspect to his story which we absolutely love! Jim purchased his raffle tickets while receiving bone marrow treatment for acute myeloid leukemia. His heart was in the right place as he purchased his tickets hoping his donation would help to prevent future patients like himself from suffering the woes of chemo-therapy.
Jim’s thank-you letter serves as a fantastic reminder for why we support such awesome causes as the St. Jude Dream Home Giveaway. The thanks we received have certainly pumped a burst of joy into our offices which your Cincinnati mover suspects will last quite a while! St. Jude is a great cause to be a part of, and we plan on being a proud sponsor for a long time!

On top of the Curiosity landing excitement, the Cincinnati Observatory Center’s famous 1845 telescope was also a big hit with guests who got to gaze at the moon close-up.

This weekend has something special in store for yuletide enthusiasts in Cincinnati. A jolly flash-mob of Claus-clad Santa’s will be moving through Cincinnati from noon until midnight Saturday starting in Fountain Square. Directed via text and tweet on where to go next, the faux Santa mob will visit more than twenty venues during its twelve-hour escapade. It’s not too late to suit-up and join the festive forces of Cincinnati’s Santa Claus Mob; if you want to get in on the action, all you need is your cell phone, a bag to hold candy canes to pass out, and of course a Santa Claus (or Misses Claus) suit.
The feeling of security in the home is very important, especially for those who live alone. For people who live alone, apartment living is a popular option, but while apartments can be ideal for those living solo some apartments can feel a little less than safe. If you foresee a residential move in your near future, perhaps you should consider security features along with all the other preferences you have for your next pad. Loft-style living is definitely worth considering if you sometimes feel uneasy laying your head down at night. Living in a Cincinnati loft apartment can feel surprisingly safe when you consider some of the common features they share; many have on-site security guards as well as surveillance cameras, plus a tenant’s front door is far less-exposed to unwanted attention being deep within a secure and sturdy building. Your Cincinnati movers are licensed and insured to move you into all types of buildings, loft-style included!

Your Cincinnati movers hope everybody has a great experience at the MidPoint Music Festival!
Ex-Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver, Chad Ochocinco (formerly Chad Johnson), likely has an above average grasp on moving with fish. If you haven’t seen Ochocinco’s bedroom, you are missing out! Exotic fish swim in an extravagant aquarium which arches over the head of his bed. The half-canopy of aquatic life surely makes for a relaxing bedtime experience on a nightly basis for Chad and his fiancé, Evelyn Lozada. And the impressive tank is not the only one in his house. Chad’s living room features a 70-foot couch, and three high-def televisions mounted on the face of his shark tank! It is safe to say that there is always something interesting to watch, either on TV or behind it, in Ochocinco’s living room!
