Cincinnati-based Lohre & Associates relocating to historic Over-the-Rhine

Cincinnati-based Lohre & Associates Marketing Communications has decided to relocate to historic Over-the-Rhine near Music Hall.  The advertising agency will occupy 1,500 square feet of a newly renovated second floor space inside the 110-year-old building.

"We're looking forward to making our new home LEED Platinum," said Chuck Lohre, President and LEED AP who stated that they purchased some materials from Building Value in Northside.  "Having a new park across the street, the streetcar at my front door and being able to walk to Park+Vine make me excited about our new location."

The new location will put Lohre & Associates directly across the street from Washington Park which is in the process of its own $32 million renovation that will include expanding the park's reach all the way to 14th Street,and introduce a new 500-space underground parking garage, dog park and more.

Being located in the historic neighborhood has Lohre, and the agency's four employees, looking foward to tapping into the positive energy happening there that also works with Lohre's own sustainable vision.

"We've been known for our work in many areas of the building trades and with manufacturers of building materials," said Lohre.  "With our move to Over-the-Rhine, we're tapping into the creative energy of this historic neighborhood's architectural renaissance and moving deeper into areas of sustainability."

Lohre is also known for founding Green Cincinnati Education Advocacy which hosts tours of the region's sustainable, green and LEED certified buildings.  According to Lohre, these tours act as the first hour of the class offered to pass the LEED Accredited Professional (AP) Exam.  So far Green Cincinnati Education Advocacy has been able to assist dozens of professionals in the Cincinnati area on their path towards LEED AP certification.

"This region can rebrand Cincinnati, and I'm happy to be a part of it and contribute my marketing communication skills to the effort," explained Lohre.  "Already we have almost 100 LEED projects on the local Chapter site and I would like to do the same for OTR. The best promotion you can do is showing the area to potential residents."
