[Cincinnati, Ohio ~ Colerain Township ~ Dec. 16, 2012] It’s not the goal of Paul L. Smith, founder and CEO of PLS Protective Services, to rule the world.

But Ohio will do.

Early next year, the security services started in 2004 ago by the former Cincinnati-area cop will move into a new headquarters, more than doubling its space and functionality, while simultaneously opening new markets across Ohio in Dayton, Columbus and Cleveland, having opened in Mansfield earlier this Fall.

What we’re finding is an opportunity for PLS Protective Services to provide high-quality, responsive security services,” said Smith, a former police officer for several Cincinnati departments who has trained with the U.S. Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA).

PLS Protective Services is currently relocating from its West Galbraith Road headquarters, a cramped storefront operation that has served it well, to a new office that provides more corporate and administrative space, as well as parking facilities for PLS security vehicles.

The new facility at 8263 Clara Avenue will officially open by the end of the year.

We’ve been scouting Greater Cincinnati for the perfect type of facility to accommodate our growing business model, and what we found was this nice little place right across the street,” said Smith.

Today’s Brandicorp Press Release – For Immediate Release

Brandicorp: Multi-Use, Infill Developer Fills A Unique Niche

Bellevue Builder’s Sweet Spot Covers Restaurants to Retail, Shopping Centers to Hotels and Hospitals, Single-Tenant Buildings to Office/Medical Facilities

The Brandicorp Strategy: Developing Premium, High-Quality Commercial, any Place or Product.

When Bigger Isn’t Necessarily Better: The Brandicorp Way.

[BELLEVUE, Ky. ~ Dec. 5, 2012] Amongst the brawny construction/development crowd in commercial real estate, some want, or need, to have it all.

Others seek just a small piece of the pie.

And then there’s Brandicorp, a specialized, niche builder of multi-use projects from shopping centers to hospitals and hotels, retail and restaurants, single-tenant buildings and office/medical facilities.

We do all the above, and oftentimes in very tight and trying circumstances, places where other developers have given up,” said Cincinnati native Mike Brandy, owner, founder, president and CEO of the multi-use niche builder ( founded in 1984.

“Our goal is not to have the biggest projects, but the best. We seek to develop the highest-quality, premium commercial real estate product possible for our core customers,” Brandy said. “Our expertise has evolved into the niche construction projects.”

Mike Brandy (Brandicorp) at Cincinnati Enquirer photo shoot.

Brandicorp plays to an audience primarily consisting of land owners; municipalities such as local cities, counties, townships and economic development entities; as well as other developers.

It’s a specialized niche, a strategy that has survived some of the toughest of economic times.

Closing out 2012, Brandicorp is reaping the rewards of its best year ever, on the heels of closing the biggest real estate deal of the year with the $36 million sale of Stone Creek Towne Center to a Chicago buyer in early 2012.

New construction has subsequently been launched by Brandicorp across the Tri-State with:

– new, multi-use infill projects on Beechmont Avenue in Anderson Township (bank, restaurant and office/medical);

– at the next-generation Rookwood product bordering Hyde Park and Norwood (hotel, office/medical, restaurant and retail);

– along the bustling Houston Road corridor in Florence (restaurants, retail and soon, office/medical);

– and at the signature Brandicorp development in Colerain Township, Stone Creek (new restaurant, retail and single-tenant office).

We’re pleased that so many economic development professionals, cities and townships, as well as fellow developers, have shown confidence in us that we can play a successful role in the bigger mixed-use developments, as well as being able to deliver an individual retail, hospital or restaurant component,” Brandy added.

Brandicorp is a leading brand in the Greater Cincinnati and Midwestern commercial real estate industry. In addition to the aforementioned projects, another dozen+ properties built, developed and managed by Brandy and his staff of 20 are available in Greater Cincinnati communities from Harrison to Mason.

HiFive Development, architect of CityLink Center opening today in Cincinnati: ‘Construction Co. Designs Heavenly,’ from 2006 feature in The Cincinnati Enquirer

Posted in HiFive Development Services Inc. with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on 11/13/2012 by @CincinnatiPR

Some might say, “Construction Company Designs Heavenly:

HiFive in Cincinnati Enquirer, November 2006.

Today’s opening of the CityLink Center in Cincinnati marks yet another milestone for one of the fastest-growing general contracting and design/build companies in the Nation, HiFive Development Services of Mason.

Congrats to the whole HiFive Development Services crew, starting with co-founder and CEO Mark Davis, President Brian Zilch, Chief Financial Officer Larry Long, Chief Operating Officer John Moses, Vice President of Pre-Construction Tom Lennon, Vice President of HiFive Church Group Steve Daniels, LEEP AP Senior Designer Blake Helms, Senior Designer Tim Hentz, AIA LEED AP Architect Sam Cain, Senior Project Manager/Director of Safety Phil Buck, Senior Project Manager James S. Dean, Senior Project Manager David A. Arnold, Marketing Director Tom Lempner, Site Manager Michael A. Holzmacher, Project Engineer Scott Gruber, Interior Designer Mary Milliken, Superintendent Glen Burkhardt, Superintendent Tom Gohs, Assistant Superintendent Jonathon Zilch, Project Manager Adam Arnold and Project Engineer Kyle Cowgill

The CityLink Center approach, from the website,

CityLink’s approach is based on the idea that support services are much more effective when they work together. This bundled services model comes from the Centers for Working Families (CWF) Model, developed by the Annie E. Casey Foundation several years ago as a response to the challenges facing low-income, working adults and their families. CWF was built upon the realization that programs to help people climb out of poverty were often underutlized, for a number of reasons: scheduling conflicts, transportation barriers, the embarrassment of asking for help, and even lack of awareness that these programs existed. By offering employment services, access to publicly available resources and financial services under one roof and integrating them into a holistic solution, CWF began achieving promising results. Clients who received bundled services were three to four times more likely to achieve a major economic outcome than clients receiving one service.”

Continuing ….

“This bundled services model is now recognized as a best practice method for fighting poverty, with successful centers in Atlanta, Baltimore, Chicago and New York. And it’s just the starting point for the CityLink vision.”
