Living well at the Ascent at Roebling's Bridge

Daniel Libeskind's dramatic addition to the Covington skyline, the Ascent, is celebrating its one year anniversary. In that year, over 50 families have moved into the sweeping blue luxury tower.

In addition to the striking views, the Ascenti, a moniker residents have proudly adopted for themselves, have discovered additional benefits to living in one of the most important architectural statements in Northern Kentucky – a sense of community. Regular events such as the Wine Club gatherings held in a Libeskind designed wine cellar help neighbors in the glass building bond. The building also has its own set of Yoga and Pilates classes held in the 2,600-square-foot wellness suite complete with private massage room and state-of-the-art cardio and resistance equipment chosen by local celebrity trainer, Aaron Lakanen.

The building even boasts its own private driver, John Callahan, who can be seen ferrying passengers around in the building's midnight blue stretch Lexus. "I have a great job," said John. "I get to help make life easy for some really nice people. Whether it is helping get a business trip started off with ease or taking a couple out for a special night on the town, I really enjoy what I do."
