(CINCINNATI, Ohio) Neyer Properties has recently completed the renovation of the two story, 13,700 sf facility at 1924 Dana Avenue for Cincinnati region’s leading child care resource and referral agency 4C…for Children.
4C…for children, who signed a ten year lease to occupy the building moved into the facility in December of 2004.
The building had numerous challenges as it was vacant for many years, part of the roof had fallen in, all the windows were broken and had other structural failures before being purchased by Neyer Properties in early 2004. Despite the challenges, this building that once was home to Husman Potato Chip Company (Need to verify this) had character including large skylights and a mezzanine that overlooked the first level providing an abundance of natural light and had decorative brick that was covered over on the front of the building, states Dan Neyer, president of Neyer Properties.
I have always had a passion for the transformation of existing building that fall into disrepair and instead of tearing properties down keep the natural character of buildings in our town since we have such a long history of architecture in this town, states Neyer. I give a tremendous amount of credit to Sallie Westheimer and the Board of 4…C for seeing the potential of this building from where it was to where it is now, states Neyer.
4C, founded in 1972 by a coalition of agencies and funders committed to child care, has worked for more than 30 years to improve the care provided to Cincinnati-area children.
They serve five Ohio counties (Hamilton, Warren, Butler, Clermont and Clinton) and eight in Northern Kentucky.
4C also administers child care subsidy programs for local and state governments and the Child Nutrition Program, which feeds more than 2,400 low-income children each month.
