Along the Ohio River in Cincinnati, KTGY has announced the opening of Artistry Cincy, a 344-unit, mixed-use community developed by Milhaus. The development’s challenging site topography and nearby flood zone presented the architect with a unique task of structuring the building to maximize unit density and ensure all residents were out 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,” says Craig Pryde, principal at KTGY. “The result is a building that provides a sense of place, connecting residents with the greater downtown Cincinnati neighborhood.”

As part of a developing multifamily enclave and considering the artistic nature of the area, the building offers spaces for local artists to create installations and provide artwork for the lobby and public areas. The mix of studio, one-, two-, and three-bedroom units include functional floor plan designs, dramatic city and waterfront views in select units, and an abundance of amenities.

The dog-friendly community features a dog grooming area; interior and exterior courtyards with a paseo to connect the spaces; a fitness center; a community center; a pool with a sun deck; and electric vehicle charging stations.

The community’s entry space is anchored by columns designed to be welcoming and bold. The building’s dark metal, white cement, and warm fiber cement exterior seamlessly blends the residential units with the 8,000 square feet of ground-floor retail space, which adjoins Artistry Cincy to the River Walk beside the city’s famed Purple People Bridge.

Artistry Cincy was completed with the help of DkGr for interior design and Anderson + Bohlander for landscape architecture.
