The University of Cincinnati Clermont is one step closer to holding classes in the office building at the former Batavia Ford Transmission Plant.

U.C. announced Thursday, April 1 that Industrial Realty Group LLC was issued $6.1 million in bonds to be used towards the purchase of the plant and IRG immediately wired the money and obtained the property title.

At the end of January U.C. said it had begun working toward a lease agreement with IRG with plans to relocate the physical therapy, surgical technician, Emergency Medical Technician programs as well as other two-year allied health programs to the facility in order to expand its remaining programs at the current campus in Batavia.
