Fire Blocks developer marks project launch with local headquarters

 

The new developer of a massive project in downtown Dayton unveiled its local headquarters and outlined further details of the mixed-use initiative during a recent launch party for invited guests.

 

The Windsor Companies, a Columbus firm that took over the Fire Blocks project earlier this summer, has spent the last two months rehabilitating a formerly vacant building into its new office space. The facility, located at 124 E. Third St., is part of a much larger project in the Fire Blocks District, which encompasses six buildings in downtown Dayton.

City of Dayton approves loan for downtown Fire Blocks project

 

The Dayton City Commission has approved a $250,000 development agreement to support a massive downtown project.

 

Commissioners unanimously approved the agreement, which includes a forgivable loan for phase one of the Fire Blocks project, at a meeting Wednesday evening. The Fire Blocks District, a 10-acre, six-building complex in the city's core, is the midst of a $35 million redevelopment effort by Columbus firm The Windsor Companies.

 

The quarter-million-dollar loan will be used to rehabilitate the historic Elks Building at 100 E. Third St. and Huffman Blocks, a multi-unit complex spanning from 111 to 129 E. Third St. The renovation and adaptive reuse of these buildings includes housing and first floor commercial space. Windsor plans to invest $20 million in these buildings, creating at least 90 new apartments and 30,000 square feet of retail/commercial space.

Fire Blocks developer starting to secure tenants

 

The developer behind one of the largest projects in downtown Dayton is starting to line up tenants as work continues on the buildings it is rehabilitating.

 

The Windsor Companies, a Columbus firm that took over the Fire Blocks project earlier this summer, has been working for months to transform a mostly vacant city block into a mix of commercial, housing and office space. Now, it appears the development is garnering some interest from various companies looking to set up shop in the city's core.

 

Eric VanZwieten, head of marketing and public relations for Windsor, did not provide specific names, but he told me a law firm has agreed to take up the entire top floor of the 124 Building, which is one of three facilities Windsor is converting as part of the project's $50 million first phase. It is located at 124 E. Third St.

 

Windsor also is in talks with a California coffee roaster, two fitness companies, a "high-end" craft beer and food business, and an "elevated restaurant concept" that could possibly be a steak house.

I lived in South Park a few years ago. That area was slowly gaining popularity among ex-suburbanites formerly situated in Centerville and Beavercreek along with younger professionals attending UD and working Downtown. I also spent quite a bit of time near the Water Street development on the river and spoke with a few of the planners involved about the waiting list for residences there and the prices, which weren't steep, but weren't a bargain either. They all seemed to think that eventually younger people would be priced out of The Oregon District, South Park or St. Anne's and move Downtown or even across the river. 

 

Initially, I didn't predict much growth or development Downtown in the near future, but now it seems like it is really starting to take off. If what those developers were saying is true, I am highly interested in what the next decade will bring. Downtown Dayton was pretty burgeoning and alive in my youth and I would love to see some semblance of that again.

Proposed Dayton boutique hotel, Century Bar’s new digs seek tax incentives

 

image.png.15932c3b75b918349795173082b063eb.png

Three Dayton projects have signaled they plan to apply for a combined $5.8 million in state historic tax credits.

The largest project is the planned renovation of the Barclay building at 137 N. Main St. into a “branded boutique hotel.” The other projects target the proposed future home of the Century Bar and the Graphic Arts building, which a developer wants to turn into housing.

 

More below:

I'm excited to see all this Columbus investment money pouring into downtown Dayton... The Graphic Arts Building has been purchased by the Windsor Companies (who are doing the Fire Blocks), and the new botique hotel on Main is being done by the folks who did Hotel LeVeque, which gives me high hopes for the quality of this project.

Exclusive: Bodega-style grocery concept coming to downtown Dayton

The grocery concept is likely to be an attractive option for downtown Dayton residents and employees who often travel outside the city's core to shop for food.

 

The bodega-style grocery outlet will share space with several other businesses locating on the first floor of Huffman Lofts, a 71-unit complex on East Third Street in downtown Dayton.

Hmmm... wonder if it'll be a scaled-down DLM? I'd be totally OK with that and it would play well with the Oakwood retirees who have been moving downtown recently. 

 

Whoever it is, having two downtown grocery stores is a huge win in my book.

Nine months in, developer makes significant progress on Fire Blocks project

 

elks-building-fire-blocks*750xx2048-1152

 

Redeveloping the Fire Blocks District has the potential to become one of the most transformative projects in downtown Dayton.

 

The multi-phase initiative, which involves the adaptive reuse of several downtown buildings, is likely to take years before the vision is fully realized, but substantial progress has been made since a Columbus developer took over the project last summer.

 

The firm behind the massive redevelopment, The Windsor Companies, has spent the last several months working to rehabilitate decades-old buildings into a mix of commercial, housing and office space. Eric VanZwieten, head of marketing and public relations, says the goal is to create an entire ecosystem where people can "eat, sleep, work and play."

Downtown Dayton apartment building sells for $1.4M

 

A downtown Dayton apartment complex has been sold to a Philadelphia-based property management company.

The JP Flats building (also known as Jefferson Place Flats) at 105 E. Second St. was sold for $1.39 million last week, according to Montgomery County property records. The buyer is listed as Lindy Jefferson Flats LLC, which is affiliated with Lindy Communities in Jenkintown, Pennsylvania.

The Dayton Business Journal previously reported in January Lindy Communities was planning to acquire the high-rise building. Lindy Communities President Alan Lindy said JP Flats will be scheduled "for full renovations" upon the acquisition, including glass-encased patios, and will be designed to have a presidential theme.

Hotel lodging tax may provide much-needed funding for Dayton Convention Center

 

4973655489001.vpx

 

The new Ohio budget bill includes language on an excise tax that could provide funding to help save the Dayton Convention Center.

 

In the latest version of the state budget bill, a hotel lodging tax of up to 3 percent is included for Ohio counties, including Montgomery. The tax would be administered by a convention facilities authority, an organization that could be established by county commissioners via a resolution.

 

Updates to the two-year, $69 billion spending bill were released this week by the Senate Finance Committee, which recommended it for passage on the Senate floor. State legislators must approve the bill before it can be signed into law by Ohio Gov. Mike DeWine. The deadline for DeWine to sign the bill is June 30.

 

The bill could have lucrative implications for the Dayton Convention Center, as additional funding through the lodging tax may provide a boost the city needs to save the facility.

Downtown Dayton development project lands $200K in historic tax credits

 

A $1.6 million project to restore a historic downtown Dayton building just got a boost.

 

The Dayton Power & Light Building at 18 S. Jefferson St. was recently awarded $200,000 in state historic tax credits from the Ohio Development Services Agency, one of three Dayton-area projects that received a combined $1.08 million through the program.

 

The 13,000-square-foot building is part of the Fire Blocks District, currently being redeveloped by The Windsor Companies, a Columbus-based development firm.

Developer offers first look at new downtown Dayton lofts

 

20191102160735*750xx4032-2268-0-378.jpg

 

The developer behind the Fire Blocks project has offered a first look at the new loft-style apartments that are entering the final phase of construction in downtown Dayton.

 

The Windsor Companies, a Columbus-based firm, held a loft leasing kickoff event Saturday that included tours of the new apartments. It also allowed interested individuals to reserve a unit before leasing went public at 6 p.m. Saturday.

 

The event, which included more than 180 registrants, gave a sneak peak at the new Huffman Lofts and Elks Lofts, which are located on East Third and Jefferson streets. Combined, the lofts feature 92 studio, one- and two-bedroom units that range from 400 square feet on the low end to over 1,000 square feet on the high end. The majority of apartments are located in the Huffman building, though the largest available unit Windsor has advertised (1,087 square feet) is in the Elks.

These Dayton projects received millions from Fifth Third in 2019

The region's largest bank provided $338 million in funding to more than 200 initiatives in 2019 — and Dayton received a massive slice.

 

Fifth Third Community Development Co. (CDC), a wholly owned subsidiary of Fifth Third Bancorp, awarded funding to 19 Dayton-area causes last year. Notable investments include $8 million toward the affordable housing portion of the comprehensive Dayton Arcade project.

...

The CDC also has committed funding to support the redevelopment and reconfiguration of 65 apartment units for the Dayton YWCA. That project is part of a $17 million rehabilitation effort for the only domestic violence shelter serving Montgomery and Preble counties.

Project to watch in 2020: Fire Blocks District

 

20191102160735*750xx4032-2268-0-378.jpg

 

The Fire Blocks District, a block of downtown Dayton buildings that have sat mostly vacant for years, is heading into the final stages of redevelopment as the new year begins.

 

The project, led by The Windsor Companies, is expected to bring several new restaurants, bars and cafes to the Fire Blocks District, as well as hundreds of new housing units. The developer initially projected these facilities would open by the end of 2019, but indications are they will open in the first half of 2020.

 

Among the establishments expected to open in 2020 are restaurants Grist Provisions and Paradox, activity bar Two Social and cafe/bakery Salt Block Biscuit Co. Downtown Dayton staple The Century Bar is also a tenant in the Fire Blocks District, and will be moving to larger space next door to its current location, where it has been for decades.

img2069*600xx1157-773-0-0.jpg

 

Two Dayton-area projects have been approved for $2.75 million in state funding.

 

The Ohio Air Quality Development Authority awarded $1.75 million to St. Clair Lofts in downtown Dayton, and another $1 million for an expansion project at Tomco Machining Inc. in Springboro.

 

The $1.75 million in bond financing will allow Lindy-Zell Dayton Lofts LLC to install new energy-efficient windows for St. Clair Lofts, located at 35 S. St. Clair St. in downtown Dayton. The original, single-pane windows will be replaced with more modern, energy-efficient windows as part of the project, which involves the development of 108 apartments and retail space in the 110-year-old building.

Significant investment driving downtown Dayton's revitalization

 

dji0920*750xx4864-2736-0-456.jpg

 

Redevelopment projects, new amenities and investment in large office towers are among the major factors leading the way in downtown Dayton's revitalization.

 

The city's core has been booming in recent years, and the resurgence is expected to continue as many large-scale projects are underway. These will complement other recent efforts that have led to more and more people choosing downtown to live, work and play.

 

"I've been impressed with the momentum happening downtown," Brian Heitkamp, president of CityWide Development Corp, said. "Five or 10 years ago we had a project here or there, but now there's so much activity. There's maybe a dozen projects potentially bubbling up."

Another new apartment building coming to downtown by RiverScape

 

4932126.vpx

 

The rapid growth of the Water Street District is expected to continue with the addition of a new apartment building that will offer sweeping views of the river and downtown Dayton.

 

Crawford Hoying says it plans to knock down the vacant Wright State University Kettering Center at 140 E. Monument Ave. to make way for a new, five-story apartment building called The Monument.

 

The new apartment building will have 125 apartments, as well as 8,200 square feet of space for retail and restaurant uses on the first floor, said Brent Crawford, principal and founder with Crawford Hoying, one of the developers of the thriving Water Street District.

I'm glad that Columbus continues to take interest in doing projects here, since the other city in our *cough cough* megaregion doesn't seem too interested in Dayton.

LOL @ Cincy developers missing out on Dayton. I'm a fan, overall, of what Crawford Hoying is doing... they did an excellent job with the Delco lofts, Fire Blocks appears to still be on track thanks to them. Water Street, while aesthetically it could use some help, was revolutionary for here and a great strategic move for them to get their foot in the door in Dayton with an easy, low-cost project.

 

I'm actually a fan of this building so I hate to see it go. There's little future for large-block midsized office building downtown anymore so it's the right move, but I will miss the architecture for sure. Especially the glass first floor inset behind the concrete pillars, it's gorgeous.

New apartment complex with riverfront views coming to downtown Dayton

 

the-monument-2*750xx1879-1057-0-1.jpg

 

One of downtown Dayton's most active developers is planning another new project that builds off the recent success it has seen in the city's core.

 

Crawford Hoying, a Columbus-area company behind several downtown projects, will demolish the vacant Wright State University Kettering Center on East Monument Avenue to make way for a five-story, 125-unit apartment complex called "The Monument."

 

"It's a very unusual building, the way it was set up," Crawford Hoying Development Principal Nelson Yoder said of the former Kettering Center. "It would not be easy to retrofit into a different use of any kind, so it just ended up being a much better project if we were able to start from scratch, which is ultimately what we decided to do."

 

The new apartments also will feature 8,200-square-feet of first-floor retail/restaurant space, as well as a 139-space parking garage that will be attached to the lower portion of the building. The garage will mostly serve residents, and provide additional parking for commercial tenants in the area.

From the article...

 

The project is likely to commence within 60 to 90 days, and is expected to be complete by January 2022.

 

Well, that's gonna go up fast.  But then again, Crawford Hoying does that.
