Miller-Valentine Group and Equity, Inc. Purchase Office Site at
Red Bank Village
Site slated for office building
Cincinnati, OH (February 6, 2009) Miller-Valentine Group announced today that it partnered with regional commercial broker and developer Equity Inc. to purchase a 2.5 acre parcel of land at Red Bank Village. This purchase is the third parcel that Miller-Valentine Group will have developed at Red Bank Village. The site is slated for an office building.
"Equity is the perfect partner for us on this project," noted Brian Copfer, Partner and Executive Vice President, Miller-Valentine Commercial Development. "Equity has a strong track record in marketing and brokering medical office buildings and has particular strengths in this particular region of the city."
"The continued positive growth of healthcare real estate and limited class A general office vacancy on the Red Bank corridor make this an excellent opportunity," said Greg Gillott, Regional Vice President, Equity Inc. "The versatility of the site coupled with its excellent location along the I-71 corridor will be attractive to healthcare providers and general office users alike."
The first of two 38,000 square foot office buildings developed by Miller-Valentine Group
at Red Bank Village was completed in 2008. The first tenant for that building, Davita Dialysis is opening by the end of the first quarter. The second office building was purchased by Reisenfeld & Associates., a rapidly expanding Cincinnati law firm. Reisenfeld outgrew its former space and relocated to the new corporate headquarters at 3962 Red Bank Road in January 2009.
The Red Bank Village development is a 35-acre mixed use development in Fairfax, Ohio on Red Bank Road. A Wal-Mart Supercenter is under construction and will open in the fall of 2009. Regency Centers will break ground on a 24,000 square foot retail strip center in March. Other retail and restaurant outparcels will follow.
"We remain optimistic about the Red Bank corridor," said Copfer. "This site is unique in that it is one of the rare sites in the Mid-town market that is ready to develop. All of the zoning and infrastructure have been completed."
Parties interested in space in the existing or future building can contact Rob MacLachlan or Brad Ruther from Equity Inc. at 513-336-8765.
