Christ Hospital Diabetes 1The Christ Hospital has added a 7,629 square foot diabetes center to Red Bank Crossing II, bringing the five-building development to a 98 percent occupancy rate. The diabetes center is open for business.

The center was designed to Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) standards. Christ Hospital Imaging Center, located on the first floor, consists of 15,000 square feet, has a LEED Gold interior designation, and was opened in late 2008.

Neyer Properties-owned Red Bank Crossing II has only 3,000 square feet remaining to be leased. This 30,000 square foot, two-story office building is the second commercial office building in the city of Cincinnati to earn LEED Certification for its core and shell.

The first LEED-certified office building in the tri-state is Neyer Properties’ Keystone Parke, located at I-71 and Dana Avenue. Keystone Parke has earned Silver LEED status for its core and shell.

Neyer Properties and the city of Cincinnati formed an economic development partnership to create the Red Bank Crossing development, transforming a weed-filled, Madisonville lot valued at $100,000 to the $25 million, medical campus and mixed-use retail development. An estimated 400 jobs has been created by Red Bank Crossing.

“With every project we are involved in, our goal is to increase property values and create jobs,” said Dan Neyer, president of Neyer Properties. “Developing projects that positively affect the community is the most exciting part of our mission.”

Red Bank Crossing contains a total of 166,000 feet of space in five separate buildings, including the following free-standing businesses: Gorilla Glue Company headquarters, 75,000 square feet and Goddard School daycare center, 10,000 square feet.

The Red Bank Crossing I and II medical buildings have a combined total of 71,000 square feet and house 12 medical tenants.

The 10,000 square foot Red Bank Retail I building includes: BEAT (gymnasium); Huntington Bank; Penn Station; and Oxford Physical Therapy.

Oxford Physical Therapy recently signed a five-year lease with Neyer Properties for 1,694 square feet of space, leaving only 1,128 square feet available in the Retail I building. Oxford’s space is set for completion in June. A retail outlot, which is the last available on the campus, consists of one acre and 4,749 proposed square feet.
