The Lorain City School board has approved a tax deal that could help a new brewery and event center on Broadway.

 

Jovic 2 LLC, a company owned by Lorain developer Victor Nardini, asked Lorain city and school officials to consider a 15-year, 100 percent tax abatement for the project.

 

The brewery and event space would be a $4 million investment at the former Cleveland Trust Bank building at 383 Broadway, according to plans.

The redevelopment of a former bank on Broadway will get an economic benefit from the city of Lorain.

 

On Sept. 4, Lorain City Council unanimously approved a 12-year, 100 percent tax abatement for Jovic 2 LLC, a company owned by Lorain developer Victor Nardini.

 

The former Cleveland Trust Bank could become a new brewery and event space – and a $4 million investment in downtown Lorain.

PROJECT: Ariel Hotel on Broadway, Lorain
 

Broadway Building facade net comes off, at least partly

On Nov. 29, 2018, workers from Coon Restoration & Sealants began removing the netting that covered the brick facade of the Broadway Building, 301 Broadway, Lorain. The restoration is part of an $8 million project to bring new life to the building, a landmark for downtown Lorain.

Heading into the holiday season, observers of downtown Lorain have a reason to cheer: The netting has come off the facade of the Broadway Building.

At least partly.

On Nov. 24, visitors to downtown Lorain’s Waterfront Winterfest saw the fencing and work platform elevator set up by Coon Restoration & Sealantsat the building, 301 Broadway.

Was out in Lorain today. The streetscape job they’re doing through their downtown should be observed by Cleveland city leaders on how to properly narrow a street and make it pedestrian friendly. And they have cut outs for TREES!!! Hallelujah!!!
