As part of the ongoing revitalization effort under way in the Uptown neighborhood of Cincinnati, CITYSTUDIOS, in association with the Uptown Consortium and Model Group, Inc. has designed a new, 21 unit affordable senior living apartment building. This project offered local residents a safe, accessible housing option, which allowed them to remain in their neighborhood and contribute to the vitality of the area. The project is LEED for Homes Silver Certified and includes sustainable features such as brownfield site mitigation, paneled wall systems, water-saving fixtures, cool-roof materials and utilization of energy-star appliances and equipment throughout. The overall carbon footprint of the project is substantially reduced by taking advantage of the strength of the existing neighborhood as a walkable community, with multiple public transportation options, inviting sidewalks and commercial and retail establishments within easy walking distance. Additional site amenities include walking paths, private patios, private parking and community gardens. The project increases the density of the neighborhood, contributing to its vitality and sustainability.
