This $224 million dollar project includes repairing water damage caused by an ineffectual roof, by adding support structures to the rusted steel inside the infrastructure and installing new heating and cooling systems.

Originally built in 1933, Union Terminal suffered over eight decades of water damage. Following the review of the Cultural Facilities Task Force in 2014 and an additional year of planning and analysis, construction and historic preservation crews began work in earnest in July 2016. Experienced workers are meticulously repairing damaged masonry and historic glass and metalwork on the building exterior. Outdated mechanical, electrical and plumbing systems are being updated, making the building more efficient to operate. 

“Union Terminal is a National Historic Landmark, architectural icon and a cultural leader of our city,” 

says Elizabeth Pierce, president and CEO of Cincinnati Museum Center.
