Continues to gain momentum in Landings Park, leasing 98,000 square feet over the last six months
In the aftermath of the Covid pandemic, companies continue to bring employees back to the workplace. To do that successfully, employers know they must provide an environment that includes amenities that go well beyond a traditional office. Recognizing this trend, VanTrust Real Estate, LLC. has begun major renovations to its 176,000 square-foot Landings I building, located in the Blue Ash suburb of Cincinnati. Additions to this best-in-class office property will include a fitness center, tenant lounge, market café, and conference rooms, as well as upgrades to the lobby and rest rooms. Renovations are expected to be completed by June.
“Companies understand they need to add special amenities to their work environments in order to encourage their employees to return to the office,” said Phil Rasey, vice president of development at VanTrust. “So adding features to the Class-A office building at Landings I was an easy decision. Key to the determination was the connectivity of our Landings development to Summit Park, a 130-acre world-class park that offers year-round entertainment events, abundant green space for outdoor activities such as hiking and skating, and four on-site restaurants. The additions to Landings I will complement the many advantages that Summit Park offers.”
VanTrust’s Landings Park development consists of Landings I, II and III, with a total of 493,051 square feet of Class A office complex across the three buildings. Located on Carver Road adjacent to Summit Park, the area is considered the market’s most desirable office corridor, and Landings Park is considered the premier office space in Blue Ash. Continuing the leasing momentum that began in 2018 when the development was completed, over the last six months VanTrust has leased approximately 98,000 square feet to tenants including CEI, Insight Direct USA, ICOF America, and Allworth Financial. These new tenants join the roster of already-established tenants that includes Stifel, Raymond James, Fox Digital, Truepoint Wealth Management, and US Bank. Landings III has only one space available with room for Tenants in Landings I and II.
“VanTrust is a valued development partner in the Blue Ash community, delivering high-quality office space that has attracted businesses from around the country,” said Dan Johnson, Economic Development Director for the City of Blue Ash. “VanTrust shares our commitment to offering strategically planned development projects that beautify and activate the built environment and that contribute significantly to our local economy.”
M&A is the architect of the redesign of Landings I, with Gordian the general contractor. Scott Abernethy of Cushman Wakefield is the broker.
