Cornerstone Project Defines Midtown  

Al. Neyer served as design-build partner with developer Ackermann Group to transform a 5-acre site from a jumble of older houses and rental units to one of the most successful new Class A urban office developments in Greater Cincinnati real estate. Two Class A office buildings near the popular Rookwood district in Midtown leased up quickly with tenants like Grant Thornton and Smith Barney.

Phase I and II office buildings each took just 12 months from groundbreaking to ribbon cutting. Time-saving innovations like pre-glazed window systems and architectural pre-cast wall panels helped meet client deadlines. The pre-cast garage went up in half the time of cast-in-place work.

“Cornerstone brings attention to the city by attracting first-rate companies to the area.”

The Hon, Thomas-Williams, Mayor, City of Norwood
