New Leases Bring Neyer Properties Green Office Campus to 68 Percent Occupancy

Strayer University has signed a $3 million, seven-year lease with Neyer Properties at Keystone Parke I, the first green office campus in the Tristate.

Along with Strayer, four other leases at Keystone Parke were signed this year, bringing the building to 68 percent occupancy.

Offices for Tri-State Centers for Sight and Dr. Melvin S. Gale will be complete and open for business by the end of the year.  The Laborer’s International Union of North America (LIUNA) and the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers have already moved in and are operating.

Strayer University will occupy 16,000 square feet on the third floor of Keystone Parke I. This will be its third location within the Tristate. Strayer has campuses in Mason and Florence, Kentucky.

The university has 54,000 students nationally in 80 campuses and online. Strayer offers working adults an array of undergraduate and graduate bachelor’s and master’s degree programs.

Beginning in January, Strayer administrative offices will be open during regular office hours daily, with classes offered from 6 p.m. to 10 p.m. and on Saturdays from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m.

In accordance with Neyer Properties’ commitment to going green, Strayer University has incorporated several green features in its offices. Interior lighting will be fluorescent, high- efficiency fixtures with occupancy sensor controls. Additionally, their offices have high percentages of recycled and regionally-produced materials as well as low VOC finishes.

Tri-State Centers for Sight will join Strayer on the third floor, occupying 3,000 square feet. Tri-State Eye has 15 locations throughout southwest Ohio and northern Kentucky.  The office at Keystone will be led by Drs. Robert Werner and Mark Gooch, who are relocating from a Clifton office.

Dr. Gale is the first tenant to occupy space on the fourth floor.  Dr. Gale practices geriatric psychiatry and is also relocating from a Clifton office. His office will also be 3,000 square feet.

“Some of the medical offices relocating to Keystone Parke already have patients at Hyde Park Medical Center, “ said  Dan Neyer, president at Neyer Properties. “We’re finding that both doctors and patients are drawn to Keystone because the location is easily accessible from the interstate and offers a beautiful, green environment.”

Both new offices will open for business before the end of the year.

LIUNA and the U.S Army Corps have moved into the second floor of Keystone Parke I. LIUNA is the fastest-growing union of construction workers, and one of the most diverse and effective unions representing public service employees.

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers delivers engineering services to more than 90 nations worldwide. It provides public engineering services to strengthen our nation’s security, energize the economy, and reduce risks from disasters.

Keystone Parke I has space available for lease on the third and fourth floors of the building.  Tenants here utilize sustainable design and incorporate green features into their office spaces.

Keystone Parke is the region’s first green office campus with the first building being LEED® (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) Silver certified for its core and shell.  Neyer Properties’ corporate offices there are LEED Gold certified.  Neyer made a commitment in 2008 to build all future office buildings to LEED standards.

The American Red Cross Regional Headquarters and Disaster Operations Center, recently completed at Keystone Parke, is slated to achieve LEED Gold by the end of the year.
