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..

Unbuilt: SouthShore Phase 2

SouthShore is a residential condominium tower in Newport, Kentucky with 62 units developed by Capital Investment Group. Initially, the SouthShore development was intended to feature one condominium tower with 62 units, a second 24-story condominium tower with 75 to 80 units atop a four-story parking garage, a ten-story, 250,000 square-foot office building and a 100-slot marina. Due to a slumping housing and office market, only the initial 21-story residential tower was completed. The office building was reduced in size and later eliminated completely and replaced with a mid-rise apartment complex.
