Reaching 300 feet at its pinnacle, the Ascent includes 70 residential units, a swimming pool, garden facilities, large public event space, and a restaurant on the plaza level. Its curving crescent form and sloping roof line are designed to maximize views, resulting in unobstructed visibility of the Cincinnati skyline from every unit. The ascending height of the building mimics the suspension cables of the nearby Roebling’s Bridge, a central feature of Covington’s waterfront. It also links the low horizon of residential structures to the east with the more modern commercial buildings to the west.
“It is a striking addition to the skyline, with its swooping peak and white and glass mottled sheath.”
