With our vibrant mixed economy, skilled workforce and easy access to other major markets and population centers, Cincinnati is ideally located for business and commerce. Today, new business, residential and entertainment developments are making downtown Cincinnati an ever more exciting urban center and a great place to live, work, play and stay.
Cincinnati is constantly recognized as a great city. Cushman & Wakefield listed Cincinnati’s Over the Rhine as one of the top 15 neighborhoods in North America (2016). SmartAsset named Cincinnati #1 for new college grads (2016) and Forbes named it one of the best cities for mid-career professionals (2016). Cincinnati is home to 10 companies on the Fortune 500 list which all help to create a vibrant and attractive city. Cincinnati is capturing the attention of an increasing number of visitors and media throughout the country.
Greater Cincinnati’s 16 colleges and universities and array of medical centers also contribute to our region’s talent community. Our educational institutions attract and graduate top prospects annually, while our medical centers, including Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center (ranked No. 3 among the nation’s children’s hospitals by U.S. News & World Report, 2014-2015) attract top medical and scientific talent who create innovative treatments and new biomedical businesses.
Our “up-and-coming downtown” is still getting better every day. The past few years have brought $2.6 billion in investment to the region’s urban core, and it shows. Downtown boasts many new development projects, including a major corporate headquarters building speeding toward completion; a thriving $600 million, 18-acre mixed-use retail/residential/entertainment district – The Banks – nestled between two professional sports stadiums; and dazzling parks, including our new riverfront park and Washington Park in our Over-the-Rhine neighborhood.
