Explore the Uptown Consortium & what's to come    [video]

Uptown Consortium, Inc. (UCI) brings local neighborhood, civic and institutional leaders together to focus on opportunities in transportation, safety, economic development, community inclusion and more. To date, the Consortium's efforts have secured more than $400 million in redevelopment, new construction and neighborhood improvements in Uptown Cincinnati.

Founded in 2004, Uptown Consortium was forged by the leaders of Cincinnati Children's Hospital Medical Center, Cincinnati Zoo & Botanical Garden, UC Health (formerly Health Alliance of Greater Cincinnati), TriHealth, Inc. and the University of Cincinnati.

These anchor institutions shared the idea that they could accomplish more — for themselves and the Cincinnati neighborhoods where they live and work — by working together.
