More Young, Educated Live Downtown                       

Cincinnati, like other large cities is seeing 20-and 30-somethings flock to live downtown even while most urban centers are losing population.  Cincinnati has gained 28% in 25-34 year olds who have a four-year degree of more and live within three miles of the central business district.  Most of that population increase will be focused in Downtown, Mt. Adams, Clifton, and Mt. Auburn. 

Experts believe that young Americans are looking for a different lifestyle.  They want neighborhoods that are walkable and have art, culture, and entertainment.  Cities that offer a choice to young people of strong downtowns and close-in neighborhoods have a competitive advantage. 

Obviously, the extensive development of Downtown and Over the Rhine is driving the increase in population here.  Further plans continue to develop around the Washington Park and Findlay Market areas.
