This is one of the most interesting and inviting loft condominium developments in downtown Cincinnati. These loft spaces were created by combining two buildings of unique architecture into one development. This is the combined vision of Thesing Real Estate Services and GBBN Architects. GBBN is a premier architectural firm with worldwide projects.
This team took cues from New York Lofts and Chicago Lofts to infuse each residence with that 'open to the sky', city loft feel. Where appropriate, the architects left exposed brick. Some units have the original stained glass windows in the living area. Some lofts have truly remarkable arched French Windows that are over 10 feet tall, with wrought iron mini-balconies Here are some of the other amenities that the architects have provided:
- Gourmet kitchens
- Granite countertops, kitchens
- Granite countertops, bathrooms
- Quality Bosch stainless steel appliances
- Woodmode cabinetry in kitchens
- Woodmode cabinetry in bathrooms
- Beautiful ceramic tile in bathrooms
- Top quality Kohler plumbing fixtures
- Hardwood in living areas
- Carpet in bedrooms
- High speed internet
- Extra storage space in lower level
- Fire protection system
- Garage parking
- Tax Abatement!
One amenity that isn't mentioned is the remarkable convenience! The very heart of the city is Fountain Square - and Fountain Square is just a half a block away! Cincinnati's favorite French Master Chef, Jean-Robert de Cavel was the creative energy behind the highly praised restaurant "Bistro" - seemingly for residents of these lofts - as it is on the street level of the same building. McCormick & Schmicks and Boi Na Braza are two very popular restaurants also on the same block!
There are TWO coffee shops on the block! You can also get sandwiches and quick lunches and coffee across the street at the Westin Hotel. Tiffany's and Macy's are a half block away across Fifth Avenue.
If you work downtown, can you imagine a more pleasant commute than a 5 or 10 minute walk? There are many world class companies downtown, employing thousands of professionals. Maybe you're one! Imagine what a tremendous savings of time it would be to NEVER have to drive to work again!!
Here's a link to WalkScore.com - which gives The Lofts at Fountain Square a score of 97 out of 100, the highest score we've ever seen for 'walking access' to just about everything you would ever need! Restaurants, Workplaces, Clubs, Concert Halls, Parks, Churches, Grocery Shopping, Macy's, Paul Brown Stadium, Great American Ballpark, US Bank Arena (Hockey & Concerts), Aronoff Theatre, The Main Library, The Ohio River (and the parks that line the river)- they're all just a short walk away!
Many people like the trouble free aspect of condominiums, but don't like living in a large, impersonal building that is simply like a glorified 'apartment building' with dozens upon dozens of units. There are only 18 residences in the Lofts at Fountain Square. It's like living in a small but prestigious community. After all, your neighbors will naturally share one of your fundamental preferences - living downtown in an exciting, convenient, upscale urban environment!
Residences range in size from 725 square feet to 1,623 square feet. Included is a remarkable Penthouse unit with a rooftop terrace! You can see Floor Plans for some of these residences here.
