Redevelopments and housing on the horizon for Mt. Adams

Mt. Adams is looking to reinvent their image as they implement changes proposed in the 2009 Mt. Adams Neighborhood Strategic Plan.

The Mt. Adams Civic Association (MACA) desires to veer away from the neighborhood’s former image as a night life hotspot "We're trying to get a more upscale demographic. We want this to be a destination entertainment district with wonderful restaurants,” says Kurt Meier, president of the MACA.

New developments include changes to existing businesses and streetscape improvements. Phase 1 includes installations of new beer garden style and Italian wedding style street lights along with additional planters on the sidewalks.

One of Mt. Adams greatest assets, its views, will be secured as hillside stability efforts provide greater protection and stabilization to infrastructure against landslides.

Renovations to major neighborhood installments include a new theater for Playhouse in the Park, and updates to Eden Park and the Cincinnati Museum Center.

Teak Thai, a neighborhood classic for over two decades has been purchased by its original founder from 1994.
Longworth’s, the once rowdy night life destination sold to a new owner planning to re-open the property as a white table cloth restaurant.

The MACA intends changes to enhance the Mt. Adams atmosphere, not completely alter it. Changes to streetscapes are planned to take place in under two years. New developments and updates to businesses are expected to happen over the course of the next 5 years.
