The Topping Out Ceremony for Nolen Park in Mariemont, held on August 14, 2013, celebrated the Scandinavian tradition of blessing the building and giving thanks to the workers and nature’s materials that brought it to life. Paul Rasmussen, pastor of Mariemont Community Church, offered the blessing and reflected on the 1300-year-old ritual during which an evergreen is hoisted to the top of the new structure – a good luck charm for future occupants.
As a tribute to Bill Coors of Forge Lumber who unexpectedly passed away in April 2013, Nolen Park’s subcontractors signed the final beam installed on the roof. Bill left his mark on many Greater Cincinnati projects. Working much of his life in the construction industry, he carved out a career as a highly regarded expert in building material supply for large multi-unit residential projects – including Jordan Park and Emery Park. His work spanned across 40 years and earned him the deep respect and friendship of customers and colleagues alike.
A proclamation from the Hamilton County Commission was presented to all of the project’s workers, which marked the day “Cincinnati Craftsman Appreciation Day.” Citing Bill and recently retired Mariemont Building Commissioner Dennis Malone as exemplary models in the industry, event organizers thanked all those helping to make the Jordan, Emery and Nolen Park condominium projects a reality. Dennis retired from his position after serving the Mariemont community for the past 30 years.
After the ceremony, the framers and subcontractor representatives enjoyed breakfast together to celebrate the occasion.
With the structure of the building just now nearing completion, Nolen Park has already sold 19 of its 26 residences – leaving only seven available in advance of the December grand opening.
A sister project, Emery Park, has 23 of its 31 residences sold.
