Messer Breaks Ground on 73,000-Square-Foot Building to Attract Advanced Manufacturing Tenant
The Colliers team is very excited to announce that industrial brokers Chuck Ackerman, Bill Keefer, and Jeff Kroeger will be working with Messer Construction, Terrex and The Port to list the former Cincinnati Gardens site. Messer will construct a 73,000-square-foot building designed specifically to accommodate the requirements of advanced manufacturing companies. The Port purchased the 19-acre former Cincinnati Gardens property located on Seymour Avenue, demolished the site, remediated and prepared the site for new investment, completing the work and created three parcels at the site in 2018.
The Port purchased the 19-acre Gardens property in 2016 as part of its industrial revitalization strategy to create new, development-ready sites to attract advanced manufacturers and good-paying jobs to Hamilton County. Messer Construction bought the five-acre parcel of land, redeveloped by The Port, earlier this year. In a development partnership with Terrex Development and Construction, Messer will construct a 73,000-square-foot building designed specifically to accommodate the requirements of advanced manufacturing companies – filling a market gap for readily available industrial properties for lease or sale. The building will be ready for occupancy in 2020.
Ackerman, Keefer, and Kroeger are also listing the two additional development-ready parcels at 2275 Seymour (7.5 acres) and 2250 Seymour (5.9 acres) for advanced manufacturing operations. The City of Cincinnati and JobsOhio helped fund the redevelopment of the 19-acre site.
