In mid-2017, the firm announced its plan to acquire the Denver Wholesale Florist shop located next to its current office. It is a win-win for both businesses. In a sweeping plan to renovate, Knight will xpand its office next door, create loft- style living on the top floor, and beautified parking lot that is a focal point as visitors enter downtown Toledo from the interstate. These renovation plans will help Knight continue itslegacy of excellence as the acquisition provides the necessary space to expand its personal Private Client Group and middle-market business department.
The expansion also shows Knight’s commitment to the Warehouse District, a bustling and rejuvenated neighborhood within the downtown. Knight has long supported the Toledo Warehouse District Association, with Diane Keil-Hipp, COO, as its president for the last ten years, and Ken Knight as a long-time board member. Knight has been the major sponsor of Wander the Warehouse District, the annual open house tour, for 15 years.
