Why us, why this building?

We have teamed up for this project because we see something very special in 1275 Budd Street. We see a future creative hub where all kinds of people can have the space and time to do meaningful work in Cincinnati.

We see four floors of unbelievable potential. 

Floor 1: We see frameshop’s new workshop where they will continue to craft custom frames and woodworking. In fact, this is already a reality, frameshop moved in this October!

Floor 2: We see a collection of makers and manufacturers building unique goods and collaborating to help each other be better and work smarter.

Floor 3: We see studio spaces where artists of any medium can create freely. 

Floor 4: We see classrooms, meeting rooms, gallery halls and photo shoots taking place in this unique, sun filled space. We see new windows on the east facing wall with panoramic views of Cincinnati as the backdrop to wedding parties dancing into the night. 

In other words, we see a building with infinite possibilities. 

But we want to know what you see. Thats why we invite you to come tour the building, before we fix a single window or paint a single beam.  Help us envision the future, and your space in it.

The opportunity that exists to make something from nothing in Cincinnati is abundant. There is a mix of adventurous thinkers, incredible access to resources and a willingness across the city to engage in new ideas. And thats exactly the spirit we hope to cultivate within the walls of 1275 Budd Street.
