Hines’ Rookwood in Cincinnati Signs Two New Retail Tenants

Strategic fashion & restaurant additions

(CINCINNATI) – Hines, the international real estate firm, announced today that Rookwood Commons, a 340,059-square-foot lifestyle center, will add two new tenants this fall. With the signing of these two leases, Rookwood is 97 percent leased to 75 leading retailers and restaurants, including Whole Foods, REI, Nordstrom Rack, T.J. Maxx, Joseph-Beth Booksellers, P.F. Chang’s, and J. Alexander’s.

The tenants—Soft Surroundings and BJ’s Brewhouse—are slated to open in early November 2018.  Soft Surroundings will open their first location in Cincinnati and will occupy 4,320 square feet. BJ’s Brewhouse will occupy 7,600 square feet in a newly constructed building at I-71 and Edmondson Road.

Rookwood Commons, along with Rookwood Pavilion, are two contiguous shopping centers that operate as a single 600,071-square-foot property referred to as Rookwood, located in the Hyde Park submarket of Cincinnati, Ohio. Known as a unique, high-end open-air lifestyle center, Rookwood serves a densely populated, urban trade area from its strategic location approximately five miles northeast of Cincinnati’s dynamic CBD. Hines acquired the property in January 2017 and implemented several physical and operational improvements to the center and is focused on upgrading the restaurant and apparel mix at the center.

Kenton McKeehan, senior managing director and head of Hines Retail Resources Group said, “Rookwood serves shoppers from all over Cincinnati and Northern Kentucky, including 50,000 students at neighboring University of Cincinnati and Xavier University. We continue to focus on physical and merchandising enhancements at the center and look forward to welcoming these new best-in-class tenants.”

“We couldn’t be happier to bring Soft Surroundings to Cincinnati, specifically to Rookwood Commons,” said Sr. Vice President of Retail, Danny Boddy. “Our brand is all about slowing down life’s rigorous pace and taking the time to rejuvenate and take care of one’s self. We feel strongly that this is something that the women throughout Greater Cincinnati can relate to and we are excited to give them an opportunity to experience what we are all about. We offer beautiful apparel, luxurious bedding, globally curated furniture and beauty solutions, all hand chosen for today’s busy woman. Our passion for customer service and the integrity of our brand gives us the ability to share our story and hopefully make our customers’ lives a little more fulfilled and enjoyable.”
