One Highland Groundbreaking Ceremony

FORT THOMAS, KY – Greiwe Development, one of the region’s leading developers of lifestyle communities, will break ground on One Highland, a new mixed-use luxury condominium and commercial/retail development in Fort Thomas, Kentucky. Firm principal Rick Greiwe will join partners Tom Williams of North American Properties, Rob Sibcy of Sibcy Cline, and civic leaders for the official groundbreaking ceremony at 10 a.m. on Tuesday, February 4, 2020.

Fort Thomas is a new market for the partners, who have collaborated on a succession of high-end condominium projects throughout Cincinnati — most recently Hampstead Park in Mariemont and Hyde Park’s 2770 Observatory. Together, they specialize in building high-quality residences in walkable neighborhoods with dining, shopping and entertainment amenities. One Highland will follow suit by providing future residents luxury, modern living — complete with in-building commercial space — in the center of Fort Thomas.

“From the city’s walkability to nearby amenities, proximity to downtown Cincinnati and park-like setting, Fort Thomas is the type of community that’s in demand with today’s condominium buyer,” said Greiwe. “One Highland will be in the heart of the city, and it will capture the spirit of Fort Thomas’ history, unique geography, and ‘city in a park’ sensibility. We’re excited to give the community an engaging place to live, work and gather.”

One Highland Commercial Space

The mixed-use, three-level building will enhance Fort Thomas’ downtown urban environment, providing 12,000 square feet of new opportunities for commercial functions at the corner of Highland and North Fort Thomas Avenues. It will have large storefront windows, accessible tenant spaces and outdoor areas.

The second phase of the project will introduce an additional two-level commercial building with 8,400 square feet of space. A 30-foot wide garden between the phase one and phase two buildings will add green space to the property. Modern commercial office and retail space are currently not available in the city center.

Residences at One Highland

Designed with empty-nesters, seniors and single professionals in mind, One Highland’s one-level living condominium residences will be on its second and third levels— a new-to-market housing option for the area. Residents will enjoy one-level living that includes elevator access to a private parking garage with two assigned parking spaces and storage for every unit. Each residence will offer open living and kitchen areas, designer finishes, covered outdoor balconies, and master suites with dual walk-in closets and spacious en suite baths. Large windows and 10-foot ceilings will provide natural light throughout. Third-floor spaces will have additional vaulted ceilings.

The residences, ranging from $695,000-1,200,000, will include:

  • 1,700 and 1,850 square-foot two bedroom and two baths
  • 2,000 square-foot two bedroom, two baths and study
  • 2,250 and 2,860 square-foot two bedroom, 2.5 baths and study

As in Greiwe’s previous projects, the building’s architecture and design will echo the aesthetic of the Fort Thomas community — pulling inspiration from nearby Tower Park. Materials will include stone masonry, brick, and a masonry/glass corner feature. The roof pitches along Fort Thomas Avenue are characteristic to the city and are planned to complement nearby buildings and homes. At street-level, a covered promenade with occasional trellises will provide an urban oasis for pedestrians. The corner plaza will be an energetic place for the community to gather.

“One Highland will enhance what our city already has to offer to our residents. From new-to-market housing options and modern commercial space, the added amenities will only serve to improve our quality of life,” said Fort Thomas Vice Mayor Roger Peterman. “Making this project a reality is a great investment for our community now and for future generations.”

Ensuring adequate parking for the new project, One Highland will have resident parking below street level in a private parking garage, and public parking available on a surface lot with an estimated 40 spaces.
