"Recommendations for a Healthy Office"

OfficeKey has come up with several best practices for meetings that will help protect the health of everyone using our spaces during this unique time: 

  1. Use a larger than necessary room – Take advantage of using a larger room so that your group has space to spread out and maintain a level of social OfficeKey Healthy Office Recommendations
    distancing to promote a healthy office environment.
  2. Limit the number of attendees –  The President has suggested limiting groups to 10 or less.  While it is not yet mandated and we don’t plan to police that, we recommend that larger groups are avoided as much as possible.
  3. Clean up after yourself – Dispose of coffee cups and water bottles, if chairs or tables are moved put them back to how you found them.  This will help us be efficient in keeping the environment sanitized.
  4. No extra guests – Now more than ever we need guests to not bring anyone else with them.  Typically they could wait in our building lobbies but for now it is best that they remain in the car or better yet at home.  
  5. Web conferencing – We have a GoToMeeting account that is available to all clients.  You can reserve the number under the “Conferencing” tab of the reservation system.  

Please email the staff at staff@officekey.com if you have any questions.  We will continue to be in touch with further updates as this situation evolves.  Stay connected with us on Facebook for more updates.

"Tour our Offices"

Google local listings

Tour any office online – OfficeKey now has a Google Virtual Tour of each of our five offices.  When someone views OfficeKey’s business listings on Google, they can choose to “see photos” or “see inside”.  From here the user can navigate through the core of the office and get a feel for the space online before visiting in person.

We are happy to announce that our clients can use these virtual tours as well.  While they can’t be embedded into another Google listing, the link(s) can be added to a website or shared directly with a future guest.

We believe this will be very beneficial particularly for new visitors and potential clients in the following ways:

  • Quality presence – They will see that you have a top-quality office perhaps before choosing to work with you.   Our goal is that the office is used as a tool to build trust.
  • Visitor directions – Just like you might provide new guests with directions to the office, they can also be given the link so that they can get a view of the reception area from the elevator.  This will help them feel even more secure that they are in the right place when they do come in to visit.
  • Sophistication- It’s just another tool that you can use to show the visitors to your website that you are investing in your firm.

The virtual tours allow you to see completely around each room, just like you would if you were walking off the elevator, so it’s worth taking some time to tour the locations that best meet your needs. If you have any questions, give us a call or complete our contact form.

"What’s Happening with the Brent Spence?"

Brent Spence Bridge 2016As a staff member with OfficeKey, I am privileged to meet a variety of people and learn many interesting things from them.  This month, I had the pleasure of sitting in on July’s Key Connections Lunch. Our guest was Trey Grayson, President & CEO of the Northern Kentucky Chamber of Commerce. He spoke about the Brent Spence Bridge Corridor Project.  Boy, was I introduced to something new!

Like many, I have been excited about the prospect of a new bridge between Ohio and Kentucky.  I didn’t fully understand why officials seemed to be back pedaling and recommending tolls.  According to all the sound bites I’d heard previously, wasn’t this project a “done” deal and wasn’t funding already secured?

Listening to Mr. Grayson explain the scope of the project and the myriad of pieces that are necessary to address the many considerations was a fascinating lesson.  As lunch continued and questions around the table were answered, it became apparent that much IS happening behind the scenes to move the project forward.  Within the current political climate and with respect to legislative constraints, it is a challenge to find common ground, at both a government level and with the general populace.   The biggest hurdle seems to be educating people, like myself, who assume the project has already been paid for twice over and find the thought of a toll booth very distressing.

The bottom line seems to be:  this is a huge, expensive project that encompasses not only the bridge itself but the highways immediately attached to the Brent Spence Bridge on both sides.  Current government funds available for this project do not cover all the work that is necessary.  Both states are tasked with finding creative resources for the additional funds…hence, the toll booth.  Unlike toll booths of the past, modern toll booths have the capability of “billing you later” by taking a picture of your car as it passes or applying a “quick pass” that electronically pays as the car passes through the gateway.  Either way, once explained, I felt a little more comfortable knowing that should a toll be levied, I will be able to cross the bridge without having to worry about bouncing coins out of the toll basket or causing a traffic jam because I don’t have exact change.  I have been schooled.

Keep an eye out for the next Key Connections Lunch – you might see me there!

Contributed by Terri Wilson, OfficeKey.  Most days you will find Terri in our Blue Ash office.  Among many other things, Terri puts together our weekly OfficeTalk, creates agreements and coordinates the Key Connection lunches.

"Let’s Celebrate Reds Opening Day"

Opening Day in CincinnatiDid you know that The Cincinnati Reds Baseball Team has history as early as 1876? Their first name was the Cincinnati Red Stockings. They were a charter member of the first national baseball league.

In 1881 they played their first game under new leadership, O.P. Caylor, then the sports editor of the Cincinnati Enquirer. They played against St. Louis and won 12-3. They are the oldest baseball team in the country with the longest running history without any disruption. They played as the Cincinnati Red Stockings until 1889 when they shorted their team name the Cincinnati Reds.

Each year opening day brings thousands of people into the city to welcome another year of Red’s baseball. Many people take the day off of school, work and other commitments to attend the day-long event. The 95th annual Findlay Market Opening Day Parade starts at noon on Monday.

OfficeKey has had an office location downtown since opening in 1984 and we enjoy taking part in the opening day celebration each year by hosting a lunch for our clients. Although parking can be tricky on opening day, we enjoy being a part of this yearly Cincinnati Tradition. If you are in Cincinnati on Reds Opening Day, join us for lunch on 04/04/2016 the 16th floor of the Scripps Building. Contact Justin at myers.justin@qhug9.hosts.cx to RSVP.

"Liberty Center Now Open"

IMG_1601-300x225Caroline McKinney, Economic Development Director for Liberty Township, Ohio, is seeing a vision come to fruition after eight years of planning, hard work and dedication. The New Liberty Center is now open! 

Caroline and the Liberty Township team began working with Steiner + Associates to bring a “mixed-use” commercial development to Liberty Township, about eight years ago. When the economic downturn occurred in 2008, the development team chose to pause the project. A couple years later, they were back in front of the Township ready to move forward.

Liberty Township has historically been a “bedroom community,” which means the majority of property is residential (only 3% commercial property). The goal is to reach 18% commercial, as to not overwhelm residents, but also to balance the community. They are conscious of the need to balance residential and commercial property to create more jobs and increase tax revenue.

[metaslider id=2088]

There are nearly 40,000 residents in Liberty Township. The goal is to get on the map as a viable option for commercial development. Having Cincinnati Children’s Liberty Campus in the township is a great indication that Liberty Township indeed is a viable option.

As Cincinnati and Dayton continue to converge, there is a market for shopping and entertainment along I-75.  This is an excellent time for Liberty Center to come to fruition. Phase I is on 65 acres, but Steiner + Associates own another 35 acres in Liberty Township that they can use for future additions.

Although Liberty Township is still rural and only 50% built out, having I-75 and Liberty Way makes Liberty Township an excellent place for retail office and entertainment.

Liberty Center includes residential, entertainment, retail and office space. It officially opened for business on October 22, but many businesses continue to move in. The first phase should be complete in December. The second phase may include a grocer and an expansion across the street.

Steiner + Associates have already brought White Barn, Express, Bath and Body WorksMacy’s, Dick’s Sporting Goods, Banana Republic, Torrid, Victoria’s Secret, Pandora, Sunglass Hut, White House Black Market, and Francesca’s into Liberty Center, as well as entertainment like The Funny Bone and Cobb 15 Luxury Theatres.

Restaurants including Cheesecake Factory, Brio and Kona Grill, have been placed throughout Liberty Center, and there is also an indoor mall with other food options like Five Guys Burgers and Fries.

There is a 120-room AC Hotel by Marriott on the grounds, 200 residential units, as well as green space, fountains and stages for concerts and other events. Parking has not been forgotten. There are metered parking options throughout the development as well as parking lots and garages.

Steiner + Associates developed Easton in Columbus and The Greene in Dayton. They were confident they could design something even better for Liberty Center with the help of their past experience.

Many of the companies filling the complex are hiring, which means hundreds of new jobs! For more information, go to www.Liberty-center.com.

We would like to thank Caroline for coming to OfficeKey to present. We are glad to support surrounding communities in their endeavors!

"Blue Ash Economic Development Update From The Expert"

Blue Ash Economic Development Manager Visits OfficeKey

blue-ash-ohio-economic-development-300x169Attendees of our Key Connections Lunch in July got the inside scoop on upcoming projects being planned in Blue Ash, and how the Summit Park development is being phased in at a cost of $10M/yr!

The Blue Ash Economic Development Director, Neil Hensley, was insightful and enthusiastic about the future of Blue Ash.

What is the present state of Blue Ash, Ohio?

Blue Ash is home for 2,300 businesses and 11,000 full-time residents. About 40,000 people come to Blue Ash to work each day which means that “earnings” taxes enable Blue Ash to flourish.
Kroger is currently the largest employer (with retail stores and corporate offices in the area), but IT is the fastest growing business sector followed by Biohealth, Market Research, and Advanced Manufacturing. Right now there is only a 2% vacancy in the light industrial zone and office space is running low as well.

What’s in-store in the coming months?

  • Milacron plans to move their headquarters from Oakley to Blue Ash and bring 43 more jobs to the area.
  • P&G – 50 acres on either side.  Planning mixed used development after P&G vacates in 3 years.
  • Kroger is opening two new distribution warehouses on Creek Road very soon.
  • Advanced Pierre Foods is adding 120 new jobs.
  • Ohio National Financial Services is expanding.
  • Summit Park is adding unique, non-chain restaurants like the Brown Dog Cafe, which is moving from its current location near Bob Evans.
  • Summit Park is also going to bring more residential and office space opportunities at the corner of Reed Hartman and Glendale Milford Road.
  • “Downtown” Blue Ash will be renamed  the “Village Center.”

As Blue Ash economic development continues at full-force, OfficeKey is ready to help businesses get off to a great start. Our facilities in Blue Ash currently support 87 businesses. We are excited to be a part of the Future of Blue Ash!
