Preserve and Redevelop Cincinnati’s Terrace Plaza Hotel

Completed in 1948, the 20-story Terrace Plaza Hotel in Cincinnati, Ohio, was one of the first post-war hotels in America and the first major building by legendary design firm Skidmore, Owings and Merrill (SOM). Pioneering female architect Natalie de Blois played a major role in the hotel’s design.

Mostly vacant since 2008, the hotel is currently deteriorating.

Send a letter to Mayor John Cranley and urge the City to prioritize the preservation and redevelopment of the Terrace Plaza in a way that reestablishes the importance of this historic International Style landmark.
