Amenity-rich Artistry Cincy creates community connections

KTGY, a leading full-service architecture, branding, interior and planning firm focused on residential, retail, hospitality and mixed-use developments, today announced the completion of Artistry Cincy, a mixed-use development in downtown Cincinnati. The building is part of a developing multifamily enclave that runs along the Ohio River and reflects a contemporary architectural style with modern sensibility designed to appeal to the young professional residents.

Featuring 344 studio, one-, two- and three-bedroom rental units and 8,000 square-feet of ground-floor retail space, the building exterior features three main materials – dark metal, white cement, and warm fiber cement – which work together in harmony to create texture and movement. KTGY infused varying colors to create dimension in the façade with aesthetically pleasing proportions. Columns anchor the entry space, which was designed to be both commanding and welcoming. KTGY structured the building to address a challenging site topography and the river’s nearby flood zone. The resulting structure maximizes unit density and ensures all residential units are outside of the flood zone.

“Working with our trusted partner and client, Milhaus, we leveraged our expertise to ensure the building met not only their needs, but the needs of the community as well,” said Craig Pryde, principal at KTGY. “The result is a building that provides a sense of place, connecting residents with the greater Downtown Cincinnati neighborhood.”

Functional floorplan designs and dramatic city and waterfront views from select units make these spaces stand out. The dog-friendly and amenity-rich building features both interior and exterior courtyards, a paseo to connect the two spaces, a fitness center, pool with sundeck, dog grooming area, community center and electric car charging stations.

The architects designed a building that considered the artistic nature of the neighboring community. In order to support it and create a vibrant neighborhood they provided spaces for local artists to create installations and provide artwork for lobby and public spaces. The ground-floor retail space adjoins the building to the River Walk beside Cincinnati’s famed Purple People Bridge, connecting the building with the greater neighborhood.

To complete Artistry Cincy, KTGY partnered with Milhaus (developer), DkGr (Interior Designers) and Anderson + Bohlander, LLC (Landscape Architect).
