The rich, scenic qualities of downtown Cincinnati have turned this community into an ideal location for people of all ages and lifestyles. From singles and professional couples with contemporary ideals to those who are enjoying their retired years, there’s an abundance of homes to choose from. Liberty Hill offers well-preserved one and two-family brick units with stately windows offering dramatic views of the cityscapes. Over-the-Rhine features restored turn-of-the century Italianate buildings as well as new structures with condominiums and homes in all price ranges.
Located in the northern portion of downtown is Over-the-Rhine with 362 acres of Italianate and German Revival buildings. These turn-of-the-century buildings and wonderful period architecture make this neighborhood a great place to live. Much restoration has been done in the area, with opportunities still available. Homes are available in all price ranges.
Innovative touches along the city’s riverfront give drama and importance to the downtown atmosphere. With residential development including luxurious condominiums and apartments, the exciting rebirth of this area makes it a good choice for anyone interested in urban living. Smale Riverfront Park, Yeatman’s Cove and Sawyer’s Point host many festivals and concerts throughout the year along the Ohio River. The nearby Banks area features many restaurants and pubs to frequent.
From East to West and North to South in Downtown Cincinnati, one can see the signs of the resurging downtown housing market. On the eastern side of downtown you will find wonderfully restored homes as well as the new construction of the Pendleton Mews, a redevelopment effort to infill with new homes where time has taken others away. Located along Pendleton St. and Spring Street, these homes are within walking distance to work, the Main Street Entertainment District and the Pendleton Arts Center.
On the northern hillside overlooking historic Over-the-Rhine are Liberty Hill and Prospect Hill. With its incredible views and old world charm, the area is perfectly suited for professionals as well as empty nesters.
In the western end of downtown you will find the Betts-Longworth District, an area restored with new homes integrated with the existing historic architecture. Another area to the west is St. Ann’s Commons, an area of new homes and townhomes that replaces unused surface parking.
With all of the new developments downtown, urban living has never been more exciting.
