THRIFTWAY HEADQUARTERS
Blue Ash, Ohio


This project was designed as a 50,000 SF single-user corporate office for a Cincinnati-based retail grocery chain. The project includes an underground parking structure for employees with an upper plaza level for additional parking with landscape planters. All interior finishes, furnishings, and equipment were selected and specified by PFB Architects. The project is a contemporary, high-profile corporate office building with a high level of interior detailing and finishes. The cost of the project was in excess of six million dollars.

The exterior is composed of a custom-designed curtain wall with granite inserts at 3'-4" center-to-center vertically, and utilizes Cold Spring granite with two distinct finishes. The exterior glazing was specified to provide for a very flat, mirrored surface to eliminate reflection distortion. The interior includes a central marbled monumental stairway connecting all floors, and specialty lighting such as cold cathode tubing accent lights.

The completed project is a cornerstone for downtown development in Blue Ash, Ohio.
