On The Beat Industry News In Brief

Locally based CSO Architects Inc. is working on plans to remodel a former Bally Total Fitness location behind the Fashion Mall at Keystone into its new headquarters.

The 24,000-square-foot former fitness facility at 8831 Keystone Crossing is vacant and falling into disrepair, according to CSO’s application for a tax abatement on the $1.8 million project.

CSO bought the building and is working on plans for a sustainable renovation with LEED certification. If approved, the 10-year abatement would save the company $56,000 in property taxes, roughly the same amount in additional taxes the company would pay for its planned improvements to the property. As part of the application, the firm pledged to create 10 new jobs and retain 70.

The company’s current headquarters is in the Parkwood office complex at Interstate 465 and North Meridian Street.
