Hollenbach-Oakley to Develop 600-Acre Office Campus Near Louisville
JEFFERSONVILLE, IND. — Commercial real estate developer Hollenbach-Oakley LLC has unveiled plans for a 600-acre office campus at the River Ridge Commerce Center in Jeffersonville, located just across the Ohio River from Louisville, Ky.
The project will be completed in two phases, the first 300 acres being developed as the River Ridge Gateway Office Campus. The remaining 300 acres will be developed as the River Ridge Research Campus. The River Ridge Development Authority recently approved the master development agreement.
“This is a real game-changer for River Ridge,” says Jerry Acy, executive director of the River Ridge Development Authority. “To date, most of the development at the center has been logistics, manufacturing and warehousing jobs. We love the firms that are here, but the office and research park will be the perfect complement and draw a different type of employer to River Ridge.”
The office campus will remain part of River Ridge Commerce Center and the River Ridge Development Authority will continue to develop significant infrastructure, such as roads, sidewalks and gutters. Hollenbach-Oakley will develop the office buildings and handle the sales and leasing efforts, as well as maintaining the campus infrastructure.
Of the 6,000 acres in the River Ridge Commerce Center, approximately 20 percent has been developed.
“We’re excited to bring our expertise and background to such an exciting project,” says John Hollenbach, managing partner of Hollenbach-Oakley. “The location and amenity package presented by River Ridge means we will be able to develop true Class A office facilities and attract top employers.”
