Kohr, KRG was created to serve the expanding real estate needs of this thriving and rebuilding community.
In 1914, the founding of KRG was one of many historical events still noted today. In 1914:

- Joseph Patrick Kennedy, Sr. and Rose Fitzgerald married
- First stone in Washington DC Lincoln Memorial put in place
- First seaworthy ship passes through the Panama Canal
- The Ohio State University opened its football season with a win over visiting Ohio Wesleyan at the Ohio Field.
KRG opened its doors before the Battelle Institute (1925), the American Insurance Union Tower (1927, now known as the LeVeque Tower), Port Columbus (1929), and The Ohio State University stadium known as the Horseshoe (1922).
KRG is committed to making commercial real estate development, ownership, and management easy, simple, and enjoyable by serving as the key partner in the business for its clients. KRG is an innovator in the ever-changing and ever-challenging commercial real estate world where being a partner in the process is key.
