AIA/Kroger Garage "Gateway" Discussion

The discussion of the meeting centered around the proposed Kroger Garage project situated at the "gateway" to Over-the-Rhine. This project has received much attention in recent weeks as community stakeholders, politicians, business leaders, designers, and others have discussed the merits of the proposal at regulatory meetings and in the media. Just weeks from groundbreaking, and under the pressure of a 2005 delivery date, an intense debate has emerged about the uses and design of the project that has slowed city regulatory approvals due by the end of February. A brief presentation by the developer and city representatives was followed by a debate about the constraints of the city issued scope of work, funding limitations, and design/development complexities of the project in light of the expectations of community stakeholders and design professionals.
