    What is the current health of housing in the downtown & OTR area? Did Covid change anything to how housing development is done? What are pros and cons of the housing types currently available? What is the process of repurposing empty office buildings? How can we develop housing units in an equitable way? Through a few case studies – projects currently “on the boards” or under construction – discussion leaders Stefan Cornelis and Mary Jo Minerich with GBBN Architects will provide the background for an open discussion on the future of urban living in Cincinnati.

    Whether the project is a new arts venue, a tiny café in a historic building, or envisioning how affordable housing can improve communities, Mary Jo’s design approach is rooted in empathy and research. In addition to leading GBBN’s approach to housing research and post occupancy evaluations, she works with clients and design teams to articulate project goals that positively impact community equity and resilience. Mary Jo has leveraged her expertise working in historic districts to facilitate conversations about how these districts can meet tomorrow’s needs while helping us explore our relationship with the past.
