A new streetscape in a historic neighborhood

Located on a historic corner, this apartment complex was designed to house young professionals and students in an urban Cincinnati neighborhood.  DeSales is the city's first LEED certified multi-family property.To achieve the goal of LEED Certified, CR designed a three-building complex containing 76 market-rate apartment units, featuring abundant natural light, views and balconies. On-site amenities include a fitness center, community room and exterior common spaces.  The design team collaborated on site and landscape planning, as well as mechanical systems to achieve a comfortable, energy-efficient design.  A short walk to neighboring businesses for essentials, proximity to public transportation, ample parking for fuel efficient vehicles, and covered bicycle storage provides tenants with many options to minimize fuel consumption.
