Built in 1878, this classic entertainment venue is considered one of the best and most beautiful concert theaters in the world, and was designated a National Historic Landmark in 1975. Music Hall originally served the city as its first convention center.
For decades, this historic, iconic home to Cincinnati’s renowned performing arts organizations has been surrounded by blight and is itself in need of significant functional upgrades. Cincinnati, the building’s tenants and patrons, and the residents of the surrounding low-income neighborhood have long recognized its ability to create jobs and provide cultural enrichment to the community. 3CDC will partner with the City of Cincinnati to complete the necessary renovations to the 225,000-square-foot facility that will expand Music Hall’s programming capacity and its ability to engage with the surrounding community.
