New Red Cross HQ gets more parking room

An additional parcel has been added to the Keystone Parke planned development district (PD-44) to accommodate parking for the new headquarters of the Cincinnati chapter of the American Red Cross.

Cincinnati City Council approved unanimously Neyer Properties' request to add a 6,750-square-foot parcel at 3556 Evanston Avenue to the development site to make room for an additional 25 surface parking spaces.

At the time the American Red Cross development was added to PD-44 in February, the parcel was not yet under Neyer's control.

Ground was broken last month for the three-story, 50,000-square-foot headquarters and disaster operations center, which will be sold to the non-profit following completion in 2010.

Neyer Properties is seeking LEED Silver certification for the building.
