Taylor Communications’ two-building campus off Albany Street is on the market.

600 Albany Street is a 413,568-square-foot business campus on 21 acres, according to the property’s listing on real estate web site LoopNet.

“The campus consists of two buildings; building one is approximately 336,822 square feet and building two is approximately 69,746 square feet with an additional 7,000 square feet building where the Standard Register Federal Credit Union resides,” the site says.

The buildings were built in the early 1920s, and a price for them is not disclosed. A message seeking comment was sent to a Taylor spokesman.

Matthew Arnovitz of CBRE is listed as the broker for the property.

Taylor is expected to begin moving some 600 workers to an office tower in downtown Dayton’s core business district next month.

The city of Dayton in May approved a $1 million development agreement with Taylor to help fund the renovation of the building at 111 W. First St. so the company can move employees from the Albany campus west of the Great Miami River.

In March 2016 — some seven months after acquiring the assets of Standard Register — Taylor changed the century-old Standard Register name to Taylor Communications.

Standard Register Co. had been a business documents company that had operated in Dayton for more than 100 years.

According to a development deal struck in April 2016, Minnesota-based Taylor Corp. agreed to keep at least 500 employees in Dayton, dependent on financial incentives from local governments and a pledge by Dayton to tear down dozens of “substandard” structures near Taylor’s Albany offices.
