Pendry Cincinnati to Reimagine Historic Beaux-Arts Gwynne Building, Awarded a $5 Million Ohio Historic Preservation Tax Credit by the Ohio Services Development Agency
Pendry Hotels & Resorts in partnership with NuovoRE, today announced plans for Pendry Cincinnati, located within the historic Gwynne Building, at the intersection of Main Street and East 6th Street in downtown Cincinnati. The historic office building that for decades housed Procter & Gamble Company’s global headquarters was awarded a $5 million historic tax credit by the Ohio Services Development Agency. This is a large step forward in the rehabilitation of the property and will preserve the unique history of the building while also providing an array of new offerings and opportunities for the Cincinnati community. Upon completion, the renovation and refurbishment of the 1913 Beaux-Arts building will be transformed into Pendry Cincinnati when it emerges in 2023.
“We are incredibly proud to bring the Pendry brand to the city of Cincinnati, and to work with our partners to revitalize this incredible building,” said Alan J. Fuerstman, Founder, Chairman and CEO, Montage International. “Like the historic renovations that made way for our Sagamore Pendry Baltimore and Pendry Chicago properties, the refurbishment of the Gwynne Building as Pendry Cincinnati will allow us to contribute to the well-being of the Cincinnati community and bring travelers in to discover a piece of its history. We look forward to becoming a gathering place for locals and travelers alike and to bringing our signature Pendry programming and style of service to the city.”
Pendry Cincinnati will feature approximately 168 guestrooms, including spacious suites, four unique lounge, restaurant and bar experiences—including a rooftop beer garden and café. The hotel includes 6,500 square feet of indoor meetings and event space, including a 3,000-square-foot ballroom. The hotel will also feature fitness center equipped with Peloton and Technogym, and will have Spa Pendry Cincinnati, a progressive spa experience, featuring treatment rooms and multiple facilities that provide a healing and restorative journey—a spa experience unlike any other in the city. Spa Pendry will draw inspiration from the Seven Hills of Cincinnati, and its lineage and ties to Rome.
“Pendry Cincinnati will be a place for the community—a catalyst for living one’s life fully, for meeting others with shared interests, for recharging and recentering, and for celebration with friends and family,” said Michael Fuerstman, Co-Founder and Creative Director, Pendry Hotels & Resorts. “We are energized by the city of Cincinnati—the spirit of the city is undeniable, and we look forward to bringing new culinary and entertainment offerings to the destination.”
With the hotel’s proximity to attractions and transportation, Pendry Cincinnati will be well-situated in downtown to serve leisure visitors, families, business travelers and beyond, creating a revitalized and vibrant hub in the heart of Cincinnati’s urban core. The hotel’s design will pay homage to its Beaux-Arts setting with a palette of warm woods, elegant natural stone, and other impactful accents with Pendry Hotels & Resorts’ signature perspective on art, design, innovation, and the fostering of community.
