2770 Observatory is a luxury condominium project in the neighborhood of Hyde Park in Cincinnati. The building has been designed to take full advantage of its prominent site, and proximity to Hyde Park Square, recognized as one of the most desirable addresses and walkable pedestrian-oriented neighborhoods in the city. Careful design of structured parking under the building hides the parking and uses the natural topography of the site.
The units have been laid out creating units that are oriented to create the best possible views from the units, understanding that these will be for the most discerning buyers in the city. Inside the units, they are spacious and open, reflecting the lifestyle of those who will choose to live here.
The building design uses traditional quality materials of masonry and large windows, with wood in areas such as balconies and other locations that humanize the building with warm materials. It serves as a contemporary interpretation of multi-family design that integrates itself into a neighborhood that prides itself on affluent homes and buildings of the early 1900s.
