Hemmer to build 898,560 sq. ft. facility at CVG airport site

Developers of a 52-acre site adjacent to the Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky International Airport (CVG) have chosen Paul Hemmer Company (Hemmer) to build an 898,560-square-foot facility there. The development is a joint-venture of Dermody Properties and Hillwood Investment Properties (Hillwood). 

Dermody Properties and Hillwood leased the land site at 1600 Donaldson Rd. in Erlanger, Ky., from CVG earlier this year. The facility, initiated as a speculative development, is now being developed for Wayfair Inc. (NYSE:W), one of the world’s largest online destinations for home furnishings and décor.

To build the expansive structure, Hemmer will put more than 20 acres under one roof. The facility, known as LogistiCenterSM at 275, will be the largest single development, by square footage, in the history of Dermody Properties. It is the company’s third development in the Kentucky market, and the second built by Hemmer, which constructed Dermody Properties’ LogistiCenter Louisville in 2014.

Construction is expected to be complete in the second quarter of 2016. Upon completion, LogistiCenterSM at 275 will be one of the largest developments in the Greater Cincinnati region and the largest speculative development in the history of CVG.

The new fulfillment facility will complement Wayfair’s current distribution center in Hebron, allowing the company to increase its distribution capacity.

DTZ served as the tenant broker, representing Wayfair. Hillwood Investment Properties is Dermody Properties’ strategic financial partner on the project. Gregory Arnold, Partner,Dermody Properties, is leading the project for the developer.

Paul Hemmer Jr., CEO of Paul Hemmer Company, is project manager; Ron Heck, Hemmer Construction Manager, is superintendent. John Curtin, Hemmer Senior Vice President, is relationship manager; Vice President Mike Hemmer managed pre-construction and estimating. Jake Williams of ATA Beilharz Architects designed the facility.
