RBM Proceeds with Madisonville Mixed-Use Project




Today, in what was once an abandoned brownfield industrial facility, RBM Development LLC (RBM) announced exciting plans for the construction of a dynamic mixed-use property located at the southeast corner of Madison Road and Red Bank Expressway in Cincinnati, OH, currently referred to as Madison Center. With this, the organization proudly welcomed Dolce Hotels & Resorts to Cincinnati as the property’s hotel operator. Leasing opportunities are now available for office, retail, restaurant, medical, shopping and service applications.

Part of Wyndham Hotel Group, the world’s largest hotel company, Dolce Hotels & Resorts properties are distinct in design and specialize in delivering exceptional meeting experiences by providing inspiring, hospitable and thoughtful environments for meetings and events.  

​RBM is a development company owned by August Troendle, MD, CEO and Medpace Founder. The company’s first project was the development of the Medpace headquarters consisting of approximately 350,000 sq. ft. over three buildings. RBM is named for “Red Bank” “Madison.”

RBM’s newest project offers a unique public plaza providing business functionality and recreation. “This $124 Million project will bring more than 700 permanent jobs and more than 220 construction jobs to Madisonville,” said August Troendle, MD, RBM CEO and Medpace CEO and founder. “Moreover, with the arrival of a Dolce hotel in Cincinnati incorporating a design that is at once tenant-, community-, event- and conference-friendly, we are looking forward to being able to engage the City of Cincinnati, the Community of Madisonville and the region as a whole.”

“This is an exciting milestone in the growth and evolution of the Dolce Hotels and Resorts portfolio,” said Mark Kukulski, president of Wyndham Managed Hotels. “We’re committed to expanding the brand’s presence in strategic markets to provide innovative product, efficient operations and unparalleled service for groups and meetings customers. We believe that this property, with its sophistication and state-of-the-art facilities, will play an important role in the brand’s success and in the local community.”

The 217-room full-service hotel will greet visitors and guests with a combination of warm hospitality, accessible cultural activities, gourmet cuisine and state-of-the-art meeting facilities. In addition to a spacious 8-story atrium and 16 contemporary event spaces, the art-themed hotel will feature a rooftop garden with a conference center, an outdoor dining area and a restaurant/lounge. 

The mixed-use development also includes other planned amenities that are available for tenants, hotel guests, residents and the public to enjoy, including:

  • A sculptural bridge connecting the project to the hotel
  • Walking trails and bike paths
