Cincinnati Center City Development Corporation

About usThe Cincinnati Center City Development Corp. (3CDC) is a 501(c) 3, tax-exempt, private, non-profit corporation. Its mission and strategic focus is to strengthen the core assets of downtown by revitalizing and connecting the Central Business District and Over-the-Rhine (OTR). 3CDC was formed in July 2003, recommended by a City of Cincinnati Economic Development Task Force as part of an overall system to increase the effectiveness and efficiency of development activities in the City of Cincinnati. Then Mayor Charlie Luken and members of the Cincinnati corporate community joined together to create 3CDC, agreeing that the economic future of Cincinnati depended first and foremost on a strong and vibrant downtown business and entertainment district. Its operations are funded privately, through a combination of corporate contributions, management fees, and below-market developer fees. In November 2004, the staff of 3CDC accepted the daily, operating responsibilities for two private investment funds, the Cincinnati New Markets Fund (CNMF) and the Cincinnati Equity Fund (CEF). These loan funds are geared toward downtown redevelopment and spurring economic development in distressed and struggling neighborhoods. 3CDC works collaboratively with the City of Cincinnati and the State of Ohio. Also among 3CDC’s partners are members of the Cincinnati corporate community. Cincinnati is fortunate to have a very strong and engaged base of corporate leadership. More than 30 corporate leaders make up 3CDC’s Board of Directors, and are vital to 3CDC's existence and success.
