  2. Xenia property owners seek redevelopment options The new landlords of a 112-year-old grocery warehouse in downtown Xenia remain hopeful the right business-owners will come along to revitalize the 90,000-square-foot space. “The bad news is it's a shell of a building. The good news is it's a shell of a building, and it's wide open. It can become so many different things,” said Jennifer Dunn, who bought the building with her husband at auction in 2016. Dunn previously told DBJ she saw the Eavey building at 17 W. Third St. as a potential catalyst to prove the viability of continued economic investment in downtown Xenia, considering its proximity to the city’s bicycle trails and its walkability.

  3.

  4. It's the "White Trash" Game of Thrones. Brilliant television.
  5. That seems to be the consensus, from what I noticed. Anywhere north of Hudson is basically "Cleveland."
  6. Anecdotally, ALL of my old roommates in college (8 of them) were from Hudson and all of them identified with Akron more than Cleveland, though of course they attended Browns/Indians/Cavs games and went to downtown Cleveland occasionally. They all were Akron-centric through-and-through (Swensons, Acme, Aeros, Rockne's, etc). From all my travels there, they (and I) thought of Macedonia/271 as "the line" when you're in "Cleveland," much like Route 63 @ I-75 being "the line" in Southwest Ohio.

    It's not that dissimilar with the Hyde Park Kroger and the one in Oakley Station. Kroger on the right (though technically south since map is weirdly flipped) is for upper-class UA folks, like Hyde Park; the one on the left (or north) is for the typical 20-somethings living off Bethel Road, much like Oakley.
  8. New cafe-bar coming to Fire Blocks District in downtown Dayton A new establishment that will serve as a cafe by day and a bar by night is making its way to downtown Dayton. The Little Gem Social Club is slated to open at 132 E. Third St. in the Fire Blocks District. Owner Robert Myers, a California man who grew up in the Dayton region, recently signed a lease for the new cafe-bar and is currently working on the design phase of the project. He's not sure when it will open, as the spread of the coronavirus has thrown business development efforts into somewhat of a tailspin, but he said he is excited to share the news. "I was supposed to fly out a day after they locked us down in California," Myers told me in an exclusive interview. "I still have some stuff to wrap up in California and coronavirus obviously disrupted everyone's plans, but I'm excited to finally move forward with this."

  20. It's now official: Cincinnati Bell acquired Cincinnati Bell has officially agreed to be acquired for $2.9 billion by a New York company. Cincinnati Bell (NYSE: CBB) announced Friday that it has entered into a definitive agreement with Macquarie Infrastructure and Real Assets (MIRA) to be acquired for $2.9 billion, which would pay out $15.50 for every outstanding share of Bell. Cincinnati Bell had originally agreed to be acquired by Brookfield Infrastructure, a Toronto firm that first offered to pay $10.50 per share of Bell, but then upped that to $12.50 after the Cincinnati technology firm got a competing offer. Brookfield upped its offer eventually to $14.50 after MIRA made a bid for the company, but decided to walk away rather than match MIRA's $15.50-per-share offer.

  21. Godfrey Hotel planned for Corktown in $45 million project A $45 million boutique hotel is expected to rise in Corktown near Michigan Central Station. The seven-story Godfrey Hotel at 1401 Michigan Ave. by Farmington Hills-based Hunter Pasteur Homes and Chicago-based Oxford Capital Group LLC is planned to start construction in the fourth quarter and be complete in time for the North American International Auto Show in the summer of 2022, pending various city approvals. The project, which has been in the works for over a year, would join a crowded field of boutique hotels in varying stages of development in the greater downtown Detroit area. It would also mark the first major new development revealed in the Corktown neighborhood, about two years after it was first reported that Ford Motor Co. was redeveloping the train station on 15th Street and building an autonomous vehicle and electric vehicle campus in the neighborhood. A building on the site, most recently City Cab, that has been vacant for a couple of decades would be torn down to make way for the new project, subject to approval from the Historic District Commission.
