Built in 1918, Machine Flats is a four-story historic building consisting of 60 loft-style apartments on Colerain Avenue in Camp Washington. This large industrial structure was converted into apartments in 2007. Listed on the National Register of Historic Places, it was originally home to toolmaker Oesterlein Machine Company, and then Fashion Frocks purchased the complex in the 1930s. During World War II, Fashion Frocks joined the war effort and made parachutes here for the U.S. military. The Classical Revival brick building features a formal symmetrical design and large rectangular double-hung windows. Each apartment includes a spacious and loft-style layout, stainless steel kitchen appliances, laundry units, expansive windows that allow loads of natural light, and access to indoor parking.

Machine Flats is located in the northern section of Camp Washington, a historic neighborhood of 19th-century homes, industrial space, and small businesses located immediately west of Clifton and Clifton Heights, University Heights, and Fairview. Camp Washington gets more walkable every day, and is within a short distance of Camp Washington Chili (established in 1940), Mom 'n 'em Coffee, and Wave Pool, a contemporary art fulfillment center. Directly behind Machine Flats is American Sign Museum, the largest public museum dedicated to signs in the country.

Camp Washington's central location makes it desirable for people drawn to city life in a more laid-back setting. You can easily get to Northside, Over-the-Rhine, and Downtown Cincinnati via a quick car or bus trip, or a bike ride along Spring Grove Avenue or Central Parkway. It is less than two miles from major employment centers such as Cincinnati State Technical and Community College, the University of Cincinnati and adjacent Medical Center, Good Samaritan Hospital, and the Cincinnati Zoo and Botanical Garden. This is a non-smoking building.
