CINCINNATI – It can be nearly impossible for developers renovating historic buildings in Over-the-Rhine to anticipate every curve ball the neighborhood could throw at them.

For Hyde Park-based Grandin Properties, the latest curve ball came in the form of The Golden Muse. The muse is a mural on the west wall of a building at 28 W. 13th St., one of two structures that Grandin is renovating and joining to create an 11-unit apartment development called Park West.

Grandin CEO Peg Wyant knew the mural was there, of course. It’s impossible to miss. The golden lady covers the entire wall of the four-story structure, which sits across from the newly renovated Washington Park. It was created by the nonprofit ArtWorks as part of the Taft Museum of Art’s 80th anniversary celebration in 2012.
