The Building

The exterior of the building has changed little since its construction over a hundred and forty years ago. It is of solid masonry construction using traditional “Cincinnati” brick much like other buildings of the era such as Music Hall and the church at Gabrielle’s corner. At the time of conversion, the building was taken down to it’s “bones” and retro fitted with all new electrical wiring, plumbing and other systems. Many of the interior walls have had their brick exposed for character while retaining strong architectural details such as high brick arches and original cast iron stairwells.

The building is comprised of seventeen units on four floors. There are four units on the first three floors and five on the forth. Ceilings are nine feet high on the first floor and get higher with each floor rising to sixteen feet on the fourth floor. This allows for the five units on the fourth floor to be duplexes with either an additional bedroom or loft. Two units have one bedroom and one bath, four units have two bedrooms and one bath, three units have two bedrooms and two baths, seven units have three bedrooms and two baths and the remaining unit has three bedrooms and two baths plus a loft study.

Ground floor units have expansive decks and landscaping some with water features. All units on the upper floors have balconies with views of various parts of the city skyline. From inside the units, depending on location in the building, views are of the city, Mount Adams, or Music Hall.

Many of the units own garages, of which there are nine in the parking area behind the building and four off of a lot that the Association owns on the east side of the building. There is off street parking behind the building for seven cars, plus one off street parking space provided in the lot behind the building adjacent to the rear door to the lobby. There is ample parking on the street in front of the building for additional cars.

The building ownership is quite stable with two units being occupied by original owners from 1980, and six more by owners of ten to fifteen years.
