American Can Factory

Monday, January 3, 2011

This project has been in the works for years, but it’s finally coming to fruition.

I’ve always loved this building in Northside. It’s great to see it find new life.

According to Building Cincinnati:
“The American Can building, built in 1921, is a nearly unaltered building in the Commercial Style
and was home to one of the nation’s largest can manufacturers, employing as many as 1,000 people
by the early 1950s. The building is the 29th site to be named a Local Historic Landmark (in Cincinnati).”

The project also received stimulus funds and Vice President Biden visited a few years back.
