WITH DEEP EXPERTISE + THE COURAGE TO CHANGE OUR CITY,

I work with developers and investors to breathe new life into old structures and honor both their past + potential. Because what's waiting below the surface is a vibrant community with stories to be told.

 

DIMENSIONAL APPROACH

our approach to development leverages real estate expertise + deeply rooted knowledge of Cincinnati's historic neighborhoods.

HONOR THE STORY

Walls talk and every building has a story. I believe in honoring the history behind each structure.

BREATHE NEW LIFE

I highlight the meaningful connections between people + buildings.

GROW THE COMMUNITY

By honoring the past + creating places with purpose, positive community growth follows.

The result? Purpose-driven multi-functional structures with staying power.

HISTORIC FIREHOUSE #16 REIGNITED

 

designed by famed architect samuel hanford in the 1860s, the historic firehouse closed down in 1977 due to a fire and sat vacant until 2014. now re-imaged as a dual-purpose retail + residential building- the space is home to layers of new life and welcomes new generations of community gathering. details like the fireman’s original lockers and the handprinted names of the firehouse #16 crew still don the walls in honor of its historic roots.
