Location: Cincinnati, OH Schedule: November 2016 – February 2018 Size: 100,000 SF Customer: Grandin Properties Architect: Denis L. Back HGC renovated the 100,000 square foot, seven-story Strietmann Center, which is now Cincinnati’s most modern office building owned by Grandin Properties – located in Over-the-Rhine at 235 W. 12th Street. The 7th floor is a contemporary conference space complete with a full kitchen and outdoor rooftop terrace with panoramic views. Floors 2-6 contain 70,000 square feet of class A office space. Floor 1 is about 15,000 square feet of street-level restaurant and retail space. The lower level includes locker rooms, showers, and bike storage. The entire building is designed with high ceilings, exposed brick, and filled with natural light. Grandin invested in 121 rooftop solar panels used to offset electricity needs for lighting, heating, and air conditioning. These solar panels will produce enough energy to produce about the same amount of energy needed to power five single-family homes annually. Grandin Properties is the first commercial company in Cincinnati to install this type of system. Through the use of solar and other energy efficient design, The Strietmann Center obtained LEED Silver certification. This project received the 2017 Cincinnati Preservation Association Rehabilitation Award.
