Austin Landing welcomes four new companies

Four more companies are establishing offices at Austin Landing, the commercial and retail development near the new interchange of Interstate 75 and Austin Boulevard, the site’s developer said Tuesday.

ThyssenKrupp Materials NA, a materials and technology company, will move from Poe Avenue in Vandalia to Austin Landing in November, an announcement from site developer RG Properties said. The company’s Copper and Brass sales division will move about 27 employees to about 6,000 square feet, RG said.

Washington Twp. investment firm Eubel Brady & Suttman Asset Management will move to Austin Landing, as well, with 30 employees taking about 9,000 square feet, RG said. That move will also happen in November.

Two other as-yet-unnamed businesses that have signed leases wish to make their own announcements later, RG said. All four signed leases for space at 10100 Innovation Drive, a four-story office building at Austin Landing.

“Austin Landing is becoming the technology and financial services nerve center of the region,” Greg Prince, RG’s director of office leasing, said in the company’s announcement. “Companies are finding that Austin Landing offers access to employees from both Dayton and Cincinnati.”

Prince agreed that the development’s location south of Dayton may make companies located there more accessible for employees commuting from Cincinnati or Butler County’s West Chester Twp.

“This location does open up that opportunity for people who live in Cincinnati and in Dayton,” Prince said.

He said he could not disclose the names of the other two companies.

“We’ve spent the last several years building a pretty strong relationship with the folks at ThyssenKrupp, and we’re genuinely sorry to see them go,” said Rick Hopkins, a spokesman for the city of Vandalia. “They have an excellent leadership team in place and they have been an outstanding local business.”

More than $40 million in new construction is planned this year along a three-mile stretch from the Dayton Mall south to Austin Boulevard, the Dayton Daily News recently reported. Miami Twp. leaders have said they are considering ways to connect the Dayton Mall area to new growth around the new interchange and in Warren County, as well.

Building permits have been issued for more than $5 million in new construction at Austin Landing, a $150 million mixed-use development featuring three office buildings and home already to Teradata, Kroger and Kohl’s.
