The National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) will consolidate three Cincinnati facilities in Uptown. The General Services Administration announced in a release the proposed purchase of a site at Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard and Reading Road.
The opening of the I-71/Martin Luther King Drive interchange is expected to create new opportunities for economic development. A neighborhood collaborative has been buying property around the interchange with that in mind.
Uptown Cincinnati, the region's second largest job center after downtown, is being revived with a vibrant innovation corridor. New and improved retail, commercial spaces, housing and transportation are vital parts of this transformation.
