Historic Emery Building Has New Owners

Feb 18, 2020

In the fall of 2019, the University of Cincinnati sold the historic Emery building to developers Dave Neyer and Chris Frutkin for $8.55 million. The building, on Central Parkway in Over-the-Rhine, was constructed in 1911 as the Ohio Mechanics Institute. The purchase also includes a letter of intent from The Children's Theatre of Cincinnati to explore a possible renovation of the building's theater for future use.

Joining Cincinnati Edition to discuss the Emery Center are STNL Development Founding Principal Dave Neyer; City Center Properties Owner Chris Frutkin; The Children's Theatre of Cincinnati Managing Director and CEO Kim Kern; and Historian Hank Sykes.
