Hamilton Crossings Adds 7,457-Square-Foot Day Care Center.
Youthland Academy, with over 20 locations and 25 years of experience, has opened their doors at Hamilton Crossings Shopping Center. Youthland Academy has formulated a unique business plan that combines the organization and systems of large childcare chains with the comfort of a neighborhood center. After a thorough site selection process, Hamilton Crossings was selected as being an ideal location choice.
In July 2007, Vintage Real Estate purchased Hamilton Crossings, a Kmart and Marsh Grocery anchored shopping center located in Hamilton, Ohio, a suburb of Cincinnati with a trade area of 2.1 million residents.
The center is located on the heavily-trafficked Highway 4 (23,000 cars per day), connecting Cincinnati with Dayton. Vintage purchased the property with 48,000 square feet of vacancy and leased 30,000 square feet during the first 12 months. Recently renovated, the center boasts an attractive brick facade with floor-to-ceiling glass storefronts, along with a new parking lot, contemporary pylon signage and picturesque landscaping. During the past several years, the city has been successful in attracting over 650,000 square feet of new retail to the area. Major retailers include Wal-Mart, Lowes, a Meijers Superstore and Office Depot. This investment by these high profile tenants lends further testimony to the growth and stability of the market.
