Just to the North of the heart of the University of Cincinnati sits Ludlow avenue. And exceptionally eclectic and vibrant street filled with a menagerie of shops, restaurants and mosaic store fronts. Ludlow Avenue is going through a major urban planning and redevelopment that is sure to improve the physical function and aesthetic appearers of the area.
This section of Clifton is mainly populated by old architecture and the unique food and shops there shows the diversity of a area. In addition on the south side of the UC campus on Calhoun Street there is significant construction going on as the university adds additional student housing, new shops, and restaurants. Moreover the Painter group is planning a green development in Clifton with shops and graduate housing just off campus.
