Sitting atop a hill in the desirable Clifton section of Cincinnati, this 12-story, highrise senior community is in the middle of everything. From the lovely Burnet Woods Park to the Gaslight District to the University of Cincinnati campus, and from its famed zoo to its beautiful botanical gardens, everything the city has to offer is within reach for the residents of Clifton Place.
Fairstead’s renovation project, though, has rekindled a joy in staying in, with improvements to kitchens and bathrooms, new flooring, and building-wide sustainability enhancements that include energy-efficient refrigerators, low-flow plumbing fixtures, LED lighting, HVAC upgrades, roof and pipe insulation, lighting control, and proactive water and boiler monitoring.
The social services team offers a range of support programs and individual assistance to residents who need help accomplishing their day-to-day to-do lists. That could mean arranging transportation to and from grocery stores or assistance with scheduling medical visits. The resident coordinator even helped one renter throw a “doughnut day” to bring neighbors together for a get-to-know-you snack.
