Eighth & Sycamore

Eighth & Sycamore is a mixed-use, high-rise located at the intersection of Eighth and Sycamore Streets in downtown Cincinnati, Ohio. The 17-story, 388,075 SF building includes 133 residential units, amenity spaces, three retail spaces at street level, and a 500-space garage. The project’s color, rhythm, and orderly structure blend with the historic context of late 19th-century brick buildings. To enliven the tower, it is clad in metal panels coated with Kolorshift to create an iridescent color-changing effect. The rain screen shifts between a dark red and a bright green, depending on one’s vantage point and the sunlight. Units in the five-story base include recessed balconies for outdoor living and a connection to the urban environment while units in the tower include large windows with sweeping views of Downtown and the hills of Cincinnati.
