Join us for lunch and an informative presentation about the renovation of two buildings on Race Street near Washington Park and seven new town homes as part of City Home Cincinnati Phase 2. Martha Schickel Dorff of Schickel Design, architect for all projects, visualized the neighborhood's renaissance in 2004 starting with the Development of her own office building at 124 W. 14th Street. Her vision grew with the conception of City Home Cincinnati town homes and renovations in 2007 on Pleasant Street and continues with the building at 1401 Race Street.
The nearby Washington Park renovation includes expansion of the park from six to eight acres and construction of an underground garage. It will transform this historic civic space in Over-the-Rhine, creating a green oasis for residents and visitors in the middle of this urban neighborhood. The park is surrounded by some of the city's most prestigious cultural institutions including Music Hall, Memorial Hall and the new K-12, $72 million School for the Creative and Performing Arts.
