The Warehouse District Congratulates The Kee for Best Hospitality Award

Columbus Business First has introduced this year an awards program recognizing the real estate projects that are elevating the city and contributing to its growth. We’re thrilled that our tenant, The Kee, has won In the hospitality segment.

For those of you who don’t know The Kee, it’s a brand new concept, located in the historic Warehouse District at 225 Neilston Street, on the northeast side of downtown. It’s partly a public event center (think concerts, comedy shows, fashion expos), partly a private event venue (host a party), and partly a modern-day community center (just hang). And, at The Kee, there’s plenty to do. Play games—like duckpin bowling, giant Jenga, sports simulators, cornhole pool, ping pong and more. Eat and drink—there’s a designer bar, posh lounge, food bar and café for craft cocktails, full table service or just grab-and-go shareables and handhelds.  There’s also an art gallery, featuring local artists, and an outdoor patio with sofas, picnic tables and firepits.

The Kee is leasing the 33,000-square-foot building from Hackman Capital Partners, the landlord that’s transforming the Warehouse District into a vibrant mixed-use urban hub. The company currently owns 10 buildings in the district, east of North 4th Street and north of East Spring Street, and has completely renovated most of them. The vintage warehouses, which date back to the early 1900s , now offer contemporary, loft-like commercial spaces with open floor plans, clear sight lines and loads of Irreplaceable architectural keepsakes.

The Warehouse District is blocks from the Short North, Arena District, Convention Center, Columbus College of Art and Design, Columbus State Community College and Ballet Met.
