Local developer has plans for Drawbridge Inn
A Fort Mitchell landmark that's been closed since December could become the site for a new upscale mixed-use development. Commercial real estate developer Brandicorp says it plans to acquire the Drawbridge Hotel and Convention Center, also known as the Drawbridge Inn.
Brandicorp president Michael Brandy issued this statement:
“The Drawbridge Hotel and Convention Center in Fort Mitchell, Ky., known of course to every Cincinnatian as The Drawbridge Inn, has been a landmark in Greater Cincinnati for decades. Brandicorp LLC of Bellevue is partnering with another local developer to acquire the site. Brandicorp is close to finalizing a deal with a tenant who will anchor this upscale, mixed-use development. We are looking forward to achieving a successful project at what is arguably the best-located and most easily accessible site in all of Northern Kentucky.”
The Drawbridge Inn is located at the Buttermilk Pike exit off I-71/75.
