Just as Covington, KY’s Roebling Bridge was the prototype for New York’s Brooklyn Bridge, The Ascent at Roebling’s Bridge will be the new benchmark for residential architecture in the United States. “The Ascent is no longer an artist dream or a sophisticated buyer’s unmet need,” said Tom Banta, President of Corporex, the developer of this high-rise building at Roebling’s Bridge. This building “is proof that residential architecture can be art on a grand scale. Success required teaming an architect of vision like architect Daniel Libeskind and a Developer with a strong sense of community and a commitment to innovative construction like Corporex. We are honored that so many Cincinnatians have expressed such great appreciation for the extraordinary effort that has gone into building the project. It is truly a new jewel in our skyline.”
