CINCINNATI — Messer Construction has broken ground on a 73,000-square-foot speculative industrial building at 2249 Seymour Ave., formerly a parking lot for the Cincinnati Gardens complex. The Port of Greater Cincinnati Development Authority purchased the 19-acre gardens property in 2016 as part of its industrial revitalization strategy to create development-ready sites in order to attract advanced manufacturers to Hamilton County. Messer Construction bought a five-acre parcel from The Port for the construction of the new manufacturing facility and will develop it in partnership with Terrex Development. The project represents a $6.5 million investment, according to Tim Steigerwald, president and CEO of Messer. The project team includes BHDP Architecture, Colliers International and Fifth Third Bank. Completion is slated for next year.
