City West - Lincoln Court
Brashear Bolton served as the Program Manager and Architect Advisor for the Cincinnati Metropolitan Housing Authority (CMHA) on the Lincoln Court Hope VI redevelopment. We assisted CMHA in assembling information about the site, developing a program, soliciting proposals from developers, selecting the developer, negotiating a development agreement, evaluating designs, obtaining regulatory code and other governmental approvals, and monitoring construction and contractor draws. The new Lincoln Court includes senior, and low-income and market rate, multi-family rental housing, and owner-occupied townhouses, totaling 500 new units.
In 2008, Brashear Bolton, working with the Corporation for Findlay Market, Third Sun Solar and Wind Power, the Urban Conservator, and the Historic Conservation Board, provided concept photo/drawings and coordination with structural engineers for the installation of new photovoltaic solar panels on the south face of the roof of the Market House.
In 2007, Brashear Bolton, working with Cincinnati Center City Development Corporation (3CDC), renovated five vacant buildings opposite the Market House on the south side of West Elder Street. The buildings are to become mixed-use developments with commercial storefronts on the street level and residential space above.
Brashear Bolton is proud to have been part of a joint venture with glaserworks in the renovation of historic Findlay Market, Ohio's oldest continuously operated public market, and one of Cincinnati's most cherished institutions. In 2004, the Market House was expanded and modernized to provide updated spaces for the vendors. Our firm was responsible for design of the vendors' spaces and for coordinating the moving of the vendors into temporary spaces in the north market buildings and back into the Market House facility after renovation was completed. The project received a Project for Public Spaces Grant and an AIA Community Award.
Cincinnati Fire Station 24
Brashear Bolton was retained by the Cincinnati Facilities Management Division to design an addition for Cincinnati's busiest firehouse, the 24s, on Glenway Avenue in Price Hill.
The project included renovation of the existing firehouse and an addition to provide new offices, kitchen, lounge space, and toilet facilities. The principal aesthetic challenge was to provide the addition with a contemporary facade that respects the historic facade of the existing building. Brashear Bolton's teammates included H.C. Nutting (Geotechnical Engineers), Kleingers and Associates (Civil Engineers), Lee Grosser Associates (Mechanical, Electrical, and Plumbing Engineers), and Don Roenker (Structural Engineer).
Community Views, a scattered-site development near Findlay Market in Over-the-Rhine, is contributing to the revitalization of the neighborhood through the renovation of six buildings comprising twelve new rental units. The buildings have been vacant for years, and required significant structural repair, new mechanical and electrical systems, new interior space configurations, and new finishes. The new apartments are open, boldly colored, contemporary spaces. The tenants participate in the Community Views Renter Equity Program that allows residents to build credit in an investment account by sharing in day-to-day upkeep and other responsibilities.
