A Cincinnati nonprofit is renovating a historic OTR building for use as a community hub
Community gathering spaces — those places where you can meet with friends and colleagues to talk about the issues of the day and hatch future plans — are beloved but often fragile places.
As Over-the-Rhine continues to change, local civic engagement nonprofit Action Tank wants to establish just such an open-ended place in the northern part of the neighborhood as its headquarters. Action Tank has partnered with historic preservation nonprofit OTR A.D.O.P.T. to renovate a historic building for use as a sliding-scale meeting and co-working space and events venue.
It's not the only historic preservation move Action Tank has launched lately — the organization is also in the midst of drawing up a Historic Preservation Action Plan by engaging Cincinnati residents about what they value about the city's architectural character.
