Construction Company Adding Vibrancy to Center City with Move to 3CDC Development
CINCINNATI (July 22, 2022) –Turner Construction has officially moved into its new office space within Cincinnati Center City Development Corp.’s (3CDC) Foundry project. Following a build out process that took approximately one year, the North America-based, international construction services company has become the second tenant in the $51 million mixed-use development. Turner celebrated the move and showed off the new space during an open house yesterday.
Turner now occupies 27,000 square feet of space on the second floor of The Foundry, formerly known as Fountain Place, along Race Street. The new space, which also serves as the financial center for the entire company, is located across the street from the 84.51° office, a development 3CDC and Turner previously partnered on that was completed in 2015.
The move brings more than 100 employees to the heart of Downtown Cincinnati, as Turner and 3CDC continue to partner on creating vibrancy in the city’s urban core.
“We are excited to share our new space with clients, industry partners, community organizations and leaders to help continue the positive transformation of the Greater Cincinnati area. The Foundry development that 3CDC has created will be a focal point in our downtown core and we are thrilled to be a part of it. We thank all of our partners who assisted in this transition for our team,” said Jessica Fitzwilson, Southwest Ohio and Kentucky Business Manager for Turner.
One of the largest construction companies in Cincinnati, Turner’s other notable downtown projects include the recently completed TQL Stadium – home of FC Cincinnati, the renovation and restoration of Union Terminal, Great American Tower, and the Contemporary Art Center, to name a few.
The Foundry involves the conversion of the former Macy’s-anchored Fountain Place into a mixed-use development featuring 150,000 square feet of Class A office space – all of which has been leased by 3CDC – along with 35,000 square feet of street-level retail space intended to connect the area around the convention center with Fountain Square.
Turner joins Deloitte in The Foundry, and will soon be accompanied by street-level restaurants Royce, a French brasseries concept set to open this summer, and Jeff Ruby’s Steakhouse, which is expected to open this fall. The space for Division Maintenance Group, the development’s final office tenant, is currently under construction, as is the space for street-level entertainment concept Five Iron Golf. Turner is providing the construction management services for all of these spaces, with the exception of Deloitte.
“Turner has been a great partner to 3CDC for many years on all types of projects, but working with the organization on its office move to The Foundry has been particularly special because it was so personal,” said Katie Westbrook, Development Director for 3CDC. “The new space looks amazing, and we’re thrilled to bring Turner’s employees to the heart of downtown Cincinnati as we continue to work to add more activity and energy to the urban core.”
