Perseverance on Vine

An award-winning Affordable Housing project in the rapidly revitalizing Over-the-Rhine neighborhood.

Perseverance adds critical Affordable Housing units for city residents whose income falls within 30-60% of the Area Median Income (AMI), a group with pressing need for access to housing. Now, new and long-time residents have updated housing and access to a vibrant, amenity rich, historically relevant neighborhood.

Perseverance revitalizes a long-vacant stretch of Vine Street through a combination of the Historic Rehabilitation of three abandoned 19th century buildings and new infill construction on a formerly vacant lot. The project was designed to be compatible with the surrounding neighborhood and residential market.

AIA Ohio Merit Award, AIA Cincinnati Design Awards Community Impact Award

New Republic was hired to create a quality, historically sympathetic renovation of the vacant historic buildings and simultaneously push the envelope of urban infill design by creating a harmonious yet contemporary new building. New Republic used quality exterior materials and lively color palettes to reinvigorate the entire city block.

New Republic’s expertise in Historic Preservation Tax Credits was instrumental in procuring Ohio Historic Preservation Tax Credits, Federal Historic Preservation Tax Credits as well as Low Income Housing Tax Credits.
