Rumpke Waste & Recycling, Cincinnati, is partnering with the Port of Greater Cincinnati Development Authority to construct new headquarters in Colerain Township, a report by WCPO says. The Port of Greater Cincinnati Development Authority recently approved a capital lease agreement to help the company offset some construction costs.

Rumpke plans to build a three-story, 64,000 square foot consolidated office building on 53 acres, the report says. The project will cost $20 million. This is only the third time the Port Authority allowed a large lease with a private business versus a developer.

The headquarters will keep more than 200 jobs in the northwest Cincinnati suburb, according to the report. It will be built on the corner of Struble Road and Colerain Avenue.

According to a separate report from the Cincinnati Enquirer, a contractor has not yet been selected and there is no scheduled timeline for construction.

The site, a mile and a half away from Rumpke’s current headquarters, could feature up to nine buildings totaling more than 380,000 square feet of space. According to the Cincinnati Enquirer, Struble Road Development Co., a Rumpke affiliate, is developing the site and will lease the property to Rumpke.

The township’s Zoning Commission will hold a public hearing Jan. 17 to consider early development plans and review a proposal to modify the property’s zoning to make the 53-acres land a planned industrial development site. Currently, there are eight single-family residences on the site.
