Downtown Lexington Progress [10 Photos]

It finally happened. Construction has begun at Centrepointe, the long-stalled, often-redesigned mixed-use development in the heart of Lexington, Kentucky. Throughout its six iterations, firings and hirings of a multitude of architects and through much public scorn – and the ultimate demolition of a block of buildings way back in 2008 has been the constant dark cloud of financing hanging over the project’s fate. Now that that issue has been resolved and now that a major tenant has been lined up for the office mid-rise, work has begun on an underground parking garage and the base for the buildings for the..

Cincinnati Sunrise and Walnut Hills [34 Photos]

Waking up to a Cincinnati, Ohio sunrise is always magical. From the rising run over the Ohio River to the warming skyscrapers of downtown, there is always something new to witness and experience. Come before sunrise and you’ll take in “blue hour,” or when the skies turn into dramatic shades of lavender and fuchsia as the sun creeps up to the horizon. The following were taken from Mt. Adams, a hilltop neighborhood that offers sweeping panoramic vistas to the west and south Walnut Hills is a residential and commercial neighborhood and was named for Walnut Hill, the farm of early settler Reverend James Kemper…

Huntington at Sunset [16 photos]

Well over a year ago, I photographed downtown Huntington, West Virginia near sunset. Despite its reputation as one of the unhealthiest cities in the United States and in the rust belt, I have loved coming back and exploring its downtown and neighborhoods. Since the completion of Pullman Square, there has been much new activity along 3rd and 4th Avenues. What was a languishing city center has seen the construction of many new condominiums and apartments, new retail – including chains from local malls and plenty of new restaurants. Starting from atop an old parking garage, I peered over and photographed..

Cincinnati in 2012 [69 Photos]

The following photographs are from a walking tour of downtown and Over-the-Rhine Cincinnati, Ohio in June 2012. Much has been completed or changed since then – and “after” imagery is provided. The tour began at St. Xavier Church which was built in 1860 for the Society of Jesus. The parish has been under the direction of the Society of Jesus (Jesuits) since 1840. The present-day stone-faced and brick church, designed by Lewis Pickett and Charles C. Svendsen, was constructed in 1860. Xavier University and St. Xavier High School were founded adjacent to the church. The Este Building is located at East 7th and Main streets and was..
