As part of their acquisition strategy, Neyer Properties is planning a multi-million dollar interior and exterior renovation, rebranding the building as a Class A structure in a
The exterior renovation will include a façade upgrade and new entrance to match the high-end properties adjacent to the building. Interior improvements will include upgrading the common areas, first floor lobby, elevator lobbies,and restrooms. Neyer is also revamping the “one of a kind” 15th floor sky lobby with outdoor terrace. The property will be transformed into a more interactive and modern space, with open floor plates, collaborative areas, and open ceilings.
“Our plans include the addition of a one-of-a-kind conference center off the sky lobby that will provide tenants with the option to open the doors up to the outdoor
terrace, creating an indoor/outdoor collaborative space where meetings or social events can be held,” said Jared Wendling, Director of Acquisitions and Dispositions.
“We believe in the vibrancy and investment taking place downtown and throughout the City,” said Dan Neyer, President / CEO of Neyer Properties. “We have
put money where our mouth is by acquiring over 1.1 million square feet of space in the City of Cincinnati since 2012 and are also adding significant investments into The Baldwin and Keystone Parke development.”
The building was sold by LNR Partners through auction site Ten-X for $8 million. Michelle Klingenberg, Josh Gerth and Rusty Myers with JLL are partnering with Neyer to bring new users to the building.
