Western & Southern owns more than 20 properties surrounding Lytle Park, including the historic Phelps Building that Western & Southern renovated into a hotel; Western & Southern’s corporate headquarters on Broadway Street; and the Guilford Building, Eagle Realty’s recently renovated corporate office. Western & Southern also developed the 41-story Great American Insurance skyscraper.
On May 13, 2013, Western & Southern
announced an agreement with Cincinnati Union Bethel that would sell
the Anna Louise Inn to Western & Southern for $4
million, $1 million more than W&S had turned down back in 2009 and then publicly offered after CUB was awarded federal loans to renovate its historical building. The deal ended years of contentious legal battles between the Fortune 500 company and the women's social services agency.
