Past Meets Present

Circa 1861

215 Wade Street was built in 1861 as an apartment building. The family that built it owned it until 1905, and the next owners kept it until 1941.

Those who lived there had jobs such as grocery owner, policeman, cabinet maker, wagon maker, lithographer, brewer, baker, jewelry repair, tailor and writer for the WPA.

The 1887 map does show that the third floor of the rear portion was used as a cloak factory, so it’s likely that a few seamstresses also lived in the building.

Modern Sophistication

The current developer purchased the 160 year old building in 2019.

With such a rich history and prime location across from the new stadium, the developer was immediately drawn to the idea of restoring this building to its original glory.

This once distressed building has now been turned into a work of art. Many aspects of the Vaughn Lofts reuse parts of other historic buildings around Cincinnati.

The style concept was to blur the line between historic renovation and implementing older architectural salvage into the units and blending that with clean lines.
