2018 Residential Development that Best Exemplifies Major Community Impact Winner The Baldwin

The Baldwin Piano Company in Cincinnati was the nation’s leading manufacturer of pianos beginning in 1862, leading the city to designate the Baldwin Piano Building as a local landmark. CASTO and Neyer Properties worked together to renovate and restore the historic building as The Baldwin, which includes its clock tower, rounded-arch openings, 13-foot ceilings and expansive windows. It now comprises 190 one- and two-bedroom loft-style apartments, as well as generous amenities.

The renovation eliminated thousands of pounds of demolition waste and ensured that The Baldwin’s history is retained and is a part of the community. The features of The Baldwin are apparent from any approach and it once again is a thriving part of the community.
