Publications Announces Acquisition Of 3101 Beaumont Centre Circle
KY - Blood-Horse Publications announces the acquisition of a new
building which will serve as the company's new corporate headquarters.
The 46,000 square foot building, built in 1995, is located at 3101
Beaumont Centre Circle on land that was originally part of the historic
4,000-acre Beaumont Farm. The Lexington-based multimedia publisher
expects to relocate to its new facility in March of 2004.
new location is at the intersection of New Circle and Harrodsburg
roads, about two miles from the company's present location at 1736
Alexandria Drive. Blood-Horse has occupied these offices since 1965.
Ohio Casualty Insurance Company (a member of Ohio Casualty Group),
former owner of the Beaumont building, will continue to house its
Lexington Regional Claims Division in the building as a tenant.
V. Bearse, President and CEO of Blood-Horse Publications, noted:
"Our staff will occupy a little more than half of the new building,
with the remainder leased to a blue-chip tenant. The opportunity
provides us with a solid real estate investment, while allowing
us to perform our day-to-day duties more efficiently and reserving
space for future expansion."
Farm was established by horseman Hal Petit Headley in Lexington
in the 1800s and was later owned by his son Hal Price Headley, who
served as Keeneland's first president from 1936-1951. The farm was
sold and developed into one of Lexington's premier office and commercial
parks in the 1990s.
