Urbana Cafe

A new café enhancing the historic Pendleton District in Cincinnati.

The Urbana Café project is a tenant improvement to an existing white box historic storefront. To accommodate a growing customer base, the tenant needed to upgrade spaces from a smaller existing location on the same street. New Republic’s design increased capacity and square footage for the café’s growing customer base, pop-up shops, barista training, and new appliances that allowed for expansion of the food menu.

The design team paid special attention to meeting accessibility requirements while following historic guidelines. The ground floor space has split levels due to a change in the grade of the street. New Republic’s planning provided accessible use for the main program elements and the restrooms.
