Rookwood Properties’ Crane Factory Flats unveils luxury living at century-old factory

Originally a Factory, Adaptive Reuse Creates 69 New Luxury Apartments.

Grand Opening Date and Ribbon-Cutting with City Officials on December 5.

 

[CINCINNATI, Ohio – November 15, 2018] With the grand opening of the Crane Factory Flats coming up fast on Dec. 5, today’s downtown Cincinnati living enthusiast has the opportunity to experience new urban living apartments, with a local history dating back more than a century.

The Crane-Hawley Co. opened its factory in 1914, producing water and plumbing fixtures. Most recently, it was home to the Hamilton County Board of Elections until early last year. Under the management of Cincinnati-based Rookwood Properties, Crane Factory Flats is a multi-million-dollar adaptive-reuse development breathing new life into an old building, creating its own unique community.

The response of the market has been fantastic, particularly during our early stages of construction, as we gear up for our grand opening and ribbon-cutting in early December,” said Annie Kanter, property manager at Crane Factory Flats.

She reports strong market interest from several different segments of the apartment-hunting public, from young professionals to college students, empty-nesters and Millennials alike.

Tucked into the Design District on Broadway between East Ninth and East Eighth streets, Crane Factory Flats (www.CraneFactoryFlats.com) is opening amidst a historic rebirth of Downtown Cincinnati.

The six-story property now offers 69 high-end apartments built with an industrial aesthetic, emphasizing exposed brick with high ceilings.

Apartments are being offered in 1- and 2-bedroom options, from loft-style living to spacious townhomes; rates range between $1,185-$3,170, for homes offering between 625-1,669 square feet.

“When the Board of Elections left, we discovered was what, in essence, what we already knew: Downtown Cincinnati is the epicenter of urban living options. Crane Factory Flats is just delivering what the market demands,” said Kanter.

Now, a 24-hour fitness and yoga center are ready.

The pet washing stations are poised.

A bike room will be built shortly; the coffee/espresso bar is complete, the Business Center geared up, as Crane Factory Flats welcomes new residents, neighbors and friends.

Amenities are copious and well-tended, from covered parking, walk-in closets and extra storage to wide hallways, ceramic tile showers and an industrial aesthetic.

Kitchens have quartz countertops and stainless-steel appliances, with floor plans emphasizing open-concept flats, featuring wood-style and carpeted floors.

Crane Factory Flats offers on-site management, 24/7 controlled access. Fully wired for WiFi and all modern comforts (dishwasher, washer, dryer), Cincinnati’s newest downtown lifestyle is pet-friendly and designed with Lounges, a Business Center, Coffee Bar, 24/7 Yoga/Fitness Center, a collaborative Workspace and roof deck.

For more information, stop by the Crane Factory Flats office, 824 Broadway, open Monday through Friday 8:30 a.m.-5 p.m. and on Saturdays from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.; or please visit www.CraneFactoryFlats.com or call (513) 832-7639.

Seeking: Companies Not For Sale

Introducing: The W. Alexander Group

Interim Alternative for Selling a Business with $3M – $15M in Annual Revenue

Experts at Building Next-Level Business Worth, for Companies in Need of Medium-Term Transition

The Biggest Obstacle: The ‘Do-Nothing’ State of Mind

The W. Alexander Group: Selling/Buying a Business, Business Exit, Succession Planning, Exit Planning, Business Valuation, Private Equity, Business Broker, Business Transition, Scaling a Business.

[CINCINNATI, Ohio ~ Sept. 26, 2018] Bill Goldberg isn’t a psychiatrist. But he does play one at work.

Goldberg is a local executive, entrepreneur and investor who leads the newly-minted W. Alexander Group.

Over the years, he’s been an officer/leader of a number of highly successful public and private companies.

Bill Goldberg, Managing Principal of the W. Alexander Group of Cincinnati. For more information, please visit http://www.WAlexanderGroup.com call (513) 666-8226 or send an e-mail to info@walexandergroup.com. For media inquiries please contact andy@andyhemmer.com (513) 604-5428 (txt-friendly)

He developed an affinity for companies with between $3 million to $15 million in annual revenue, a corporate sweet spot largely dominated by family-owned and closely-held companies.

There’s just so much more you can do to help businesses in that range, even if it’s opening their minds to the possibility of growth, building upon their own legacy, and embracing change when that time arrives,” Goldberg says.

Up to 90 percent of businesses with between $3 million to $15 million never get sold. Much less, it’s never even seriously considered,” Goldberg adds.

That, in a nutshell, is a reason for the W. Alexander Group.”

Goldberg is the founder and Managing Principal of the W. Alexander Group, a private operational investment firm he launched earlier this year.

Their specialty: helping these business owners address and resolve what are primarily emotional reasons for the indecision and resulting corporate ennui:

  • “What else then am I going to do with the rest of my life?”
  • “My company IS my family. What would they do without me?”
  • “I just can’t trust anybody else with my baby. This is my legacy. No one else will understand my business.”
  • “I will deal with this later.”

Reaping the Benefits, on an Owner’s Own Terms

The unfortunate result: doing nothing can put an owner’s family, employees, and clients at risk, potentially causing tremendous, irreversible financial harm to the true worth of their business.

It’s an entrenched mentality that can paralyze.

Many owners end up not communicating with family and/or professional advisors, isolating themselves and adding to the do-nothing dilemma,” said Goldberg.

The sad reality is, one way or the other, by design or default, all owners will exit their businesses. We want to help them reap the benefits of their efforts, on their terms.”

Goldberg has spent his career in a variety of ownership and executive roles at companies big and small, public and private.

He recently led a successful recapitalization effort at Relevate Health Group Inc., which offered him the opportunity to launch the W. Alexander Group.

Goldberg and his team have years of successful operating experience and buying and selling businesses.

His mission?

“To provide an interim alternative for owners having to sell their businesses, while still increasing business worth,” Goldberg said.

Our approach is on a private, operationally-based, investor-informed business model that protects an owner’s downside, while providing an upside appreciation. It’s a medium-termed solution to selling their business.”

The W. Alexander Group business model is not designed for a start-up.

We are looking for businesses in need of transferability, scaling, re-leveraging of various aspects of the business and appreciation of business worth,” Goldberg said.

Private Operational Investors: The W. Alexander Group

The W. Alexander Group is not a broker, banker, nor consultant.

The company gets involved with business owners in an operational, side-by-side mode through an agreement that allows owners to protect their equity, while building next-level business worth.

Jeff Spanbauer, Goldberg’s former partner and current CEO of Relevate Health Group, said “Bill’s personal mentorship, his ability to lead, partner, and quickly make sense of complex business issues, helped rocket Relevate from a start-up to one of the premier marketing/business service organizations in the United States.”

In the spirit of simplicity, openness, and to address engagement issues, W. Alexander Group employs an agreement that addresses common mutual protections without getting into complex voting, classes of stock, etc.

Jeremy Hayden, an experienced mergers and acquisitions attorney with Frost Brown Todd of Cincinnati, said “Bill has a true value proposition: it makes good business sense and is an uncommon approach. It also provides professional advisors another alternative for their clients selling their business now.”

#tbt: did Van Halen breakup go down in Cincinnati?

Posted in #TBT with tags , , , , , , , , , , , on 10/15/2015 by @CincinnatiPR

According to The Rolling Stone ….

Van Halen were the biggest hard-rock band on the planet in March 1984; the hit single “Jump” was in heavy rotation on MTV, and their sixth studio album, 1984, was on track to sell 17 million copies. Eddie Van Halen and David Lee Roth exchanged their usual ribbing when Rolling Stone writer Debby Miller caught up with them at a Cincinnati tour stop. “I‘m a musician, Dave’s a rock star,” said Van Halen, who would bring studio equipment on the road, and told a story about climbing into the closet of his hotel room at night to hum song ideas into a tape recorder. (He also talked about his uneasiness at being a guitar idol: “I am so much geekier than any of those kids dreaming about being me.”) Roth, for his part, belittled Eddie’s recent star cameo on Michael Jackson’s “Beat It.” (“He went in and played the same f****** solo he’s been playing in this band for 10 years. Big deal!”) Less than a year later, Roth was out of the band, replaced by singer Sammy Hagar.
