Libeskind Building Unusual Condominiums in Covington, Kentucky

Covington, Kentucky’s waterfront is being radically reshaped by a Daniel Libeskind designed crescent-shaped high rise. The 21-story residential tower is located at E. RiverCenter Boulevard and Scott Street, along the Ohio River in Kentucky. The 310,000-square-foot curved glass building will have 80 condominium units, ranging from 950 to 7,000 square-feet in size, plus retail space, an urban plaza, and recreational amenities. "The Ascent" is situated on one-acre near John Roebling's famous 1866 suspension bridge, connecting Ohio and Kentucky. The building's sweeping lines mimic the cable-suspended bridge, connecting the low eastern horizon of homes with the western summit of commercial towers.

"This building, while modern in design, is based on shapes that reflect the history, traditions and landscape of Greater Cincinnati," said Libeskind in a statement. "Yet [it] calls to mind the possibilities that lay ahead."

The $40 million project, developed by Corporex, is scheduled to break ground this summer and finish by mid-2007.
