About Duke Realty
Since its founding in 1972 in Indianapolis, Indiana, Duke Realty has been a leader in commercial real estate. From its first property—Building One in Park 100 Business Park on the northwest side of Indianapolis—Duke Realty has set the standard for providing high-quality, innovative, and distinctive environments that meet businesses’ operating needs.
Capitalizing on its success in Indianapolis with industrial property development, Duke Realty began to expand both geographically and by product type in the late 1970s. Cincinnati, Ohio was the first market outside of its headquarters city that Duke Realty entered.
Throughout the next decade, Duke Realty’s developments grew. Offices were opened in Nashville, Tennessee, and Columbus, Ohio, with Duke Realty becoming one of the largest developers and property owners in each of these markets.
