On January 20th, we had the privilege of joining the IIDA-Cincinnati/Dayton chapter for a hardhat tour of the Art Deco beauty, Cincinnati Union Terminal, while it undergoes a massive $217.5 million ($160 million in construction alone) renovation.
For those of you not familiar with this Cincy icon, the massive building took 3 1/2 years to complete--from August 1929 to March 1933. The cost? $41 million. In today's world, that equates to a whopping $575-$589 million! The impressive scale of this building along with its attention to details are what makes this such an icon in our city.

We hope you enjoyed our photos of Union Terminal! It's truly an iconic building, not just to Cincinnati but to the larger world of architecture. We highly recommend getting a hard hat tour while it's under renovation and then visiting again once all the work is complete.
