Neyer Properties requests additional parcel to be added to Keystone Parke

Cincinnati City Council's Economic Development Committee on Wednesday will hold a public hearing about a request by Neyer Properties to add an additional parcel to its planned development district (PD-44) at Keystone Parke in Evanston.

The additional 6,750-square-foot parcel at 3556 Evanston Avenue, which just recently came under Neyer's control, would provide an additional 25 spaces for a planned parking lot at the new headquarters for the Cincinnati chapter of the American Red Cross.

The developer was unable to delay the February hearings and approval of the final development plan for PD-44 due to construction timelines.

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

Neyer Properties is seeking LEED Silver certification for the building.
