Another business in town will soon call One Highland home. Bisbe Capital, a newly formed business by Mike Bisbe, Brandi Kohlsmith and Tabatha Schorsch, has purchased the end unit that faces the bank. Bisbe Capital plans to move into the nearly 2,400 sq. ft. space in early 2022. His current office is located just down the block at 111 N. Fort Thomas Avenue. 

For Mike, it was an easy decision to stay in Fort Thomas. 

"I knew I wanted to spend the remainder of my career in Fort Thomas and when the opportunity came along to show the city we were here to stay, we jumped on it. We wanted to help keep the spaces there local and non franchised feeling, so buying a space there was something exciting and rewarding we could do to show our community we appreciated them welcoming us in over the years," said Mike. 

"I wanted to show Fort Thomas that Bisbe Capital was honored to keep our roots in Fort Thomas, a community built on deep roots itself.”

The purchase of this space allows Bisbe Capital the space to hold larger meetings while providing first floor access and an elevated look and feel. 

"It was time we gave Fort Thomas the same welcome they gave me 17 years ago," said Mike. "We also wanted the luxury look and feel our clients deserve, as well as first floor access to all our clients who no longer need to be tackling steps."

About Bisbe Capital

After several years with Edward Jones, Mike Bisbe and his team decided to branch off to start their own business. "After 17 years at Edward Jones, and with the ever changing environment in financial planning and investing, we needed more robust and deeper planning software, more investment options and the ability to be more competitive with our fees so our clients could benefit from all aspects of our move," said Mike. "We wanted to have our own identity and still be backed by a huge firm like Raymond James with a strong reputation of ethics and client satisfaction with a balance sheet that matched that standard."

Bisbe Capital's focus is on investment services and providing guidance that makes the most sense for those seeking to manage their assets. "Bisbe Capital was created for and with our clients at the forefront of all our decisions. We wanted to offer an ideal and unique experience to each client in order to serve their unique needs and goals. Our mission is to over-serve all our clients in the capacity needed and now we can."

Bisbe Capital joins Fort Thomas Coffee as two of the commercial tenants at One Highland, the $20 million luxury condo development One Highland, set to be completed in spring 2022.

The project is by Greiwe Development with partners North American Properties and Sibcy Cline. There is a total of 12,985 square feet of commercial space is being marketed.

It's the first project by Greiwe Development, the group that built 125 luxury condominiums in Mariemont and dozens more to Hyde Park, to include commercial space on the ground floor.

Rick Greiwe, principal of Greiwe Development, said that when looking to curate retailers for the first floor, it's important to find longstanding businesses who have a vested interest in their surrounding.

"We wanted to make sure we curated the right mix of businesses to enhance the lifestyle of the people who live in the condos above and provide benefit for the Fort Thomas community," he said.

He said that the advantage of buying a retail space like that is that, despite the higher upfront cost of purchasing rather than leasing, it offers the chance for long-term ownership in the community.

One Highland will have 18 condos ranging in price from $695,000 to $1.2 million.
