Clyffside kickoff (OTR - Brewery District)
« on: April 15, 2008, 11:00:22 PM »
This was a great event...and the free Christian Moerlein certainly didn't hurt.  Here are some pictures from the festivities and throughout the great old building that is now being renovated into 19 new residential units ranging from the mid-100's to the mid-200's.  Enjoy.


1.


2. Notice the keg detailing on the railing(s)


3.


4. Now this is a great American


5. And another...


6. This was kind of awkward given the very pro-streetcar crowd in attendance


7. The ceremonial 'wall knocking'


8. The new historical marker for OTR's Brewery District


9.


10. New signage that is to be installed along McMicken to pay tribute to the Brewery District's great history


11. How would you like this view everyday


Now onto a tour through the building...

12.


13.


14.


15.


16. Check out that ceiling


17.


18.


19. Deep underground now


20.


21.


22.


23.


24.


25.


26.


27. The future rec room for residents


28.


29. I wonder where this used to lead...maybe part of those notorious tunnels through the Brewery District


30.


31.


32.


33. And one more for good measure...

Nice shots.
I love it when people come into a message board and immediately begin to mix it up.  I mean, Jesus, at least say hello!  Do you walk into a room full of strangers, pick a random woman, and tell her she's fat? - buildingcincinnati

Fabulous structure. It'll be interesting to see how that takes shape, and I hope it succeeds. So many cities have destroyed assets like that.

Awesome!  This is going to be a great project for the BD & OTR.

Randy, when was this?

"great" American?, I'm flattered.

It was a fun event, thanks to everyone who came out.

Keep an eye out, there are more surprises in store soon for the Brewery District.

Nice pictures of a great building. I'm so glad they will be converting the basement into a recreation room!

When we give the Architreks tours, we take our customers to the Clyffside. I'm really happy that we can now say the building is being turned into condos.

I didn't see the historical markers last weekend. Did I miss them or are they not yet installed?

I don't think any of them are installed yet.  I was under the impression that they were just unveiled last weekend....

As of Sunday the Remain Breweries sign was on display in the makeshift Alehouse at Findlay market for the brewery tour (which was pretty cool by the way)...

Yes, it was cool :)  I was there "hawking" streetcars all day Saturday and part of the day on Sunday!
