Historic restoration for the modern day

This Elm Street senior housing facility is located in Cincinnati's historic Over-the-Rhine neighborhood. World famous for its Italianate architecture, OTR is a neighborhood undergoing exceptional revitalization. The original space presented a few challenges to CR, mainly: transforming three separate buildings into one cohesive space, and updating the buildings for the modern day, while still preserving the original charm. After helping developers secure state and federal tax incentives, CR created a 15-unit, structurally sound community for OTR seniors.
