Map It!


The Grand Baldwin, a landmark structure in Cincinnati, is not only known for its elegance but also its superior energy efficiency. Originally built over a half century ago as the home of the world-renowned Baldwin Piano Company, this stately 250,000 square foot, nine-floor, Class A red brick structure was tastefully renovated 1987 and presents an environment that is luxurious, distinctive, centrally located and equipped with amenities for maximum productivity.

ENERGY STAR certification for the Grand Baldwin required extensive retrofitting of the building lighting and HVAC infrastructure.  In 2004, 100% of the existing T-12 fluorescent lamps were replaced with T-8 lamps and incandescent bulbs were replaced with high-efficiency compact fluorescent lamps.  In 2006, Yaskawa variable frequency drives were installed on the building's two cooling towers.  In 2007, Yaskawa variable frequency drives were installed on all seventeen air handler units.  Additionally, the building uses an energy management system to monitor energy demand and reduce it where possible by establishing equipment operation times so that there is an optimal balance between energy savings and tenant needs.
