KENWOOD, OH (FOX19) -
Owners of what's now called "The Kenwood
Collection" unveiled their vision for the more than 300,000 sq. foot building
that will house both retail and office space.
"We have challenged ourselves to say, what if we've had an opportunity to
develop a project that will house a collection of retailers, not in this market
and marry it with class-A office tenants," said Davis Birdsall, Senior
Vice President of Strategic Investment Funds for Phillips, Edison and Co.
Many people question whether the structure that has been sitting for five years
is safe. Birdsall answered that question Thursday.
"The structural steel is just fine and I would appreciate it if you would
stop asking," said Birdsall. "Just a little rust you can knock it off
and it will be fine."
David Birdsall says the steel has been inspected by Messer Construction.
The Hamilton County Building Inspector's Office says they have not inspected
the steel because no new building permits have been submitted and the last time
the building was inspected by them was in the winter of 2011-2012.
In a statement to FOX19, the office said: "We cannot confirm or deny whether the steel is satisfactory until these
reports are submitted."
No new tenants for the building have been announced, and there is still no
timeline for when the project will be completed.
New signage at the site reads, "New Owner, New Team, New Vision. Watch it happen!"
