Cincinnati Enquirer Building in Downtown Cincinnati

Cincinnati Enquirer Building in Downtown Cincinnati

Located on Vine St. in downtown Cincinnati, the Cincinnati Enquirer Building was designed by Lockwood Greene and Co. and completed in 1926. The newspaper’s offices are now a few blocks away on Elm St., and this building stands empty.

My favorite detail of the façade is the stained glass, particularly the small medallion-type elements:

Even the side of the building, which is hard to see from the street, features patterned details:

The radio station on WKRP in Cincinnati was located in the Osgood R. Flimm Building, which was actually the Enquirer Building. In the credits, you can see a shot very similar to my last photo:

Are there any plans for this building?

  1. I always liked those guys scrunched up on the facade.
    Middle Earth owns the building and wiped out the few tenants it had. they had plans for condos, then changed them to apartments and now who knows. Given their track record the best we can hope for is they lose it in bankruptcy soon.
    Watching the credits for WKRP its amazing how much the downtown skyline has changed since back then.

  2. I loved walking by this building when I lived downtown. I only wish the originaly library building was still intact and standing as that would provide some great photo opportunities.

  3. I love this building and always mumble…”it’s so beautiful…what is the plan for this place?” Hmmm…

  4. It will open as 2 hotels in one, mid march 2015, the lobby is being restored to its original 1926 state and will be spectacular.
