Phase II of Core5 Industrial Project Set to Break Ground Q3 of this Year

CBRE Set to Market and Lease Phase II Buildings Following Successful Leasing of Initial Phase I Building

Cincinnati – September 2, 2021 – Core5 Industrial Partners announced today that Phase II of the Core5 Industrial Partners speculative multi-building industrial project is scheduled to break ground in the third quarter of this year in Elsmere, Kentucky.

Phase II will feature two buildings totaling 869,308-square-feet. Building 2 offers 585,064-square-feet of cross-dock capability for larger tenants while Building 3 will offer 284,244-square-feet of single-loaded space, creating leasing opportunities for smaller end-users. Phase II follows the successful leasing of the Phase I — 839,931-square-foot C5 Airport East Logistics Center Building 1 to Diversey, Inc. at 7900 Foundation Drive. This building is scheduled to be completed in Q1 2022.

Doug Armbruster, Core5’s Senior Vice President of the Midwest Region, is leading the development.

“We are excited to start Phase II of this project. We are proud to be developing in the city of Elsmere and Kenton County. Combining exceptional infrastructure with strong community partnerships is key to our success, and this location in Elsmere provides almost immediate access to the CVG cargo hubs as well as a strong labor market in a close-in infill location.”

CBRE’s Doug Whitten represented Core5 Industrial Partners during the Phase I leasing and will be responsible for the marketing and leasing of all future buildings at the site.

“This project represents an amazing opportunity for companies to operate in innovative and ultramodern speculative industrial facilities with a fantastic level of access to the greater Cincinnati and Northern Kentucky markets,” said Whitten. “Speculative facilities with this type of access to quality labor are hard to find and we are seeing ever-increasing demand for high-quality facilities in this area. We expect the future phases of the project to draw interest from a variety of manufacturers, e-commerce and logistics companies that are looking to fortify their supply chain capabilities in the Midwest.”

The site is strategically located 2.5 miles from Interstates 75 and 71 and provides convenient access to CVG International Airport.
