Explore the topics facing Greater Cincinnati as it grows opportunities and delivers choice lifestyles to its increasingly diverse population.

18 Hour City Series is a creative problem-solving forum. The structure allows industry talent to engage with panelists to innovate around unique challenges and ideas. Our ULI Members are a diverse group of thought leaders. We are doers who design and solve for effective use of land and the built environment. Expert panelists will present contemporary thinking on a subject and together we will help form, create and sustain our 18 Hour City.

18 Hour Cities are experiencing:

  • above-average urban population growth
  • affordable cost of living
  • lower cost of doing business relative to “24 Hour” cities like Boston, Chicago, Los Angeles, New York City, San Francisco and Washington DC

The concept of the 18 Hour City is important because the label has proven to be a good indicator of growth potential. ULI, for example, has tracked the progress of cities it designates as 18 Hour, and the data is compelling. If a city has quantifiable success attracting Millennials with a solid and growing job base, yet is more affordable than the cities from which they are migrating, it is logical to believe that it will thrive.

January 10: Workforce

Messer Construction, Uptown Workforce Development Initiative

Finding enough work-ready and qualified employees is a challenge in many industries, especially the building trades. At the same time, cities are starting to request workforce commitments from projects in exchange for economic development incentives.  This session of the 18-Hour City Series will explore how Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center and Messer created the Uptown Workforce Development Initiative and are finding the win-win when it comes to staffing the region’s largest construction project while at the same time meeting the workforce goals established with the City of Cincinnati.
