Aerial view of Columbia BuildingRenovations have been underway since January at the historic Columbia Building in Cincinnati’s Over-the-Rhine. HGC is working with long-time partner 3CDC on the 32,000 SF building at the corner of 13th and Walnut. The area has already seen a large amount of redevelopment led by 3CDC, and the completion of this critical corner will only further energize the vibrant neighborhood.

Due to the scope of the project, the building was split into phases: the North Building and South Building. The HGC team anticipates delivering the South building in early September, ready for tenants, and then delivering the North building about 1 to 1.5 months later. Work is progressing rapidly. The South Building has finished a large amount of drywall, painting, window demolition, setting door frames, and floor installation. Drywall on the 4th floor of the North Building was recently completed. The first-floor commercial spaces in both buildings have begun their MEP rough-ins. In the next few weeks, teams expect to complete:

  • Installing cabinets and setting plumbing fixtures in the South Building.
  • Drywall, painting, floors, and trim in the lower floors of both buildings.
  • Door installations and window installation
  • Box gutter replacements

The final result will be 36 apartment units and street-level commercial space.
