Schaefer relocated its 50+ local team members to the Midland Building at 537 East Pete Rose Way to accommodate future growth projections. The headquarters location officially opens September 17.
“We’re thrilled to join the downtown Cincinnati community,” said Schaefer President Greg Riley. “Evendale has been a great home for the past two decades, but we chose the location and our specific space based on who we strive to be in the future. As a firm that has experienced continuous growth since we first opened our doors in 1976, we not only needed more room for additional smart people to join our team, but we needed a creative and collaborative office space with and near the amenities that top talent requires. Our firm has maintained a reputation for exceptional structural design and an engaging internal culture that has attracted and retained our empowered team members; we now have a headquarters that we believe will continue to attract new people, excite our clients and inspire our team.”
Schaefer finished the 18,000 sq ft shell space on the top floor of the four story building. High ceilings and large windows provide natural light and a private balcony offers riverfront views. All team members have access to an onsite fitness center with a cardio room, weight room, yoga studio, locker rooms and sauna. The location is walking distance from Sawyer Point, The Banks and Newport on the Levee, and a short streetcar ride to the rest of CBD and Over-the-Rhine.
Schaefer announced its plans to relocate last March. The firm previously resided in the Brendamour Building in Evendale at 10411 Medallion Drive, and prior to that, was located in the Colerain and Northside neighborhoods. Schaefer has offices in Columbus, Ohio and Phoenix, Arizona, and designs permanent and temporary structures nationally.
