Hillwood Launches 1.7M-SF Kentucky Development

Dallas-based Hillwood and partner Cincinnati-based developer and design-builder Al. Neyer commenced construction of Erlanger Commerce Center, a state-of-the-art distribution center in Erlanger, KY. The two speculative buildings total more than 1.7 million square feet, and will be near the intersection of Interstates 75 and 275.

Hillwood’s Kurt Nelson says, “We have seen substantial growth in the Tri-State area of Ohio, Kentucky and Indiana. The industrial activity in this area is driven by a strong transportation infrastructure and healthy workforce. That makes it an attractive location for major manufacturing and logistics companies.”

Construction on the first building, totaling 779,922 square feet, will begin in 2018. Erlanger Commerce Center is a few miles from the Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky International Airport in Hebron, KY, and is among one of the most robust interstate highway systems.
