The Elberon is an existing five story early 1900’s historic building in East Price Hill, Cincinnati. The project consists of a complete renovation of the building, including a new elevator and layout reconfiguration for thirty-six units of affordable senior housing. Working in association with the developer and the local not-for-profit agency, Price Hill Will, CITYSTUDIOS has developed the project in accordance with the sustainable design principles of the Green Communities Initiative and Silver level LEED for Homes program. In addition to the interior renovation, the project provides extensive exterior improvements including the demolition of two adjacent dilapidated structures for off-street parking, patios for garden level apartments, and landscaping. Accessibility upgrades and the incorporation of Universal Design standards are a major factor in the development. Project includes two accessible entrances, fully accessible units and the installation of a new elevator serving all levels. A residence community room is located at the historic sidewalk level commercial space.
