Plans Advance for Office Project Near Oakley Station

Cincinati could get another office building. One such project is currently being considered for a site along Interstate 71, near the 74-acre Oackley Station mixed-use development.

A city-owned parcel left over from the Kennedy Connector project could become the site of a new office building and mark a developer’s debut in Cincinnati.

According to the Cincinnati Business Courier, Brian Swift, owner of Fountain Realty Investments L.L.C., has a preferred developer agreement with the city of Cincinnati to buy a parcel along Interstate 71 near the 74-acre Oakley Station mixed-use development.

Swift is negotiating the acquisition of the site, where he plans to develop a 45,000-square-foot office building called Kennedy Crossing. The project would be the developer’s first in Cincinnati.

The project is expected to cost between $5 million and $7 million. Swift plans to start construction as soon as he secures a lease with a tenant for at least part of the building.

Joe Janszen, a vice president in the Cincinnati office of DTZ, is the listing agent for the development. According to a brochure from DTZ, the project calls for a three-story building with 225 parking spaces, 36 of them in an underground garage.
